Buying a new car is a big investment—one that many people put off during the recession, bringing the average age of cars on the road to over 10 years old. But as the economy improves, buying a new vehicle can be better for your safety, the health of the environment and even your pocketbook. If you’re looking at new cars, here are some reasons to consider a new Honda:
- Hondas are Affordable
When compared to similar cars, Hondas are often more affordable. Plus, they’re typically cheap to insure, so the savings carry over through the years.
- Hondas are Reliable
Hondas rarely break down, and can last for years. In fact, a newer model Honda can last 250,000 miles. The Honda Civic, in particular, is known for being a car you’ll probably drive for a long time yourself before passing it on to your kids.
- Hondas are Safe
Hondas are known for offering top-of-the line safety options. In fact, the 2015 Honda Fit earned a Top Safety Pick in August 2014 from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
- Hondas are Fuel Efficient
All car companies, even ones previously known for building gas-guzzlers, have fixed their sights on fuel efficiency. But Honda has always been and remains an innovator in fuel efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the Honda CR-Z gets up to 39 mpg, saving $4,000 in fuel costs over five years compared to the average new vehicle.
- Hondas are Easy to Repair
Hondas are known for rarely needing service. But when they do, it’s easy to find Honda repair centers—and Honda auto repair tends to be relatively affordable as auto repair costs go. There are over 87,000 auto repair businesses in the U.S. employing over 700,000 mechanics and many, many of them are qualified to work on Hondas. This allows you to get auto repair estimates from several auto repair shops to make sure you’re getting the best service and the best price.
