Used Honda - A Great Automotive Investment

Wednesday, October 31, 2012
There are a number of benefits which come with buying a Used Honda from an approved Used Honda dealer. Before a Used Honda is sold, Honda’s highly skilled mechanics put it through an extensive multi-point check – seventy-six points to be specific. Each car has to meet-up to Honda’s high standards before it is sold, and is taken on a test drive to make sure everything is running smoothly. For Honda, quality is important, whether it’s a brand new car, or one which has a few miles under its wheels.

If any problems arise during your first thirty days of ownership (or 1000 miles, if this comes sooner), or if your Used Honda isn’t everything you expected it to be, you can exchange it for a Used Honda of equal or greater value. You also get a guarantee, which can be renewed after the first year, so your investment is always protected.


And to make sure there are no nasty surprises, Honda run a mileage and history check for you. Your Used Honda’s mileage can be checked against the car’s history and with previous owners. Its general history can be checked with HPI or Experian. This way, you know exactly what you’re getting for your money.

You can buy a Used Honda from individual sellers, independent car dealerships, franchised dealerships, or an official Used Honda dealership. Each one has its advantages. Generally speaking, individual sellers and dependent dealerships can give you more competitive prices, but less certainty and security. Franchised dealerships are a nice compromise between the different types of sellers, and official dealerships can be slightly more expensive, but give you more security in case anything goes wrong.

There are so many types of Used Hondas available that it might take you a while to narrow down the list. There’s the Accord, Civic, CR-V, FR-V, HR-V, Insight and Jazz, which are spacious five doors. You can find a saloon version of the Accord, Civic, Civic Hybrid and Legend, and the Civic is also available as a two door or three door. If you want a convertible, perfect for the summer, than the S2000 is your perfect Used Honda.

If you’ve decided to buy from an official Used Honda dealership, you can also take advantage of the Honda Happiness scheme. It’s pretty much as its name suggests; a service designed to make Honda owners happy. Used Honda owners can take advantage of fixed price repairs, safe in the knowledge that there won’t be any hidden costs when the work is completed. There is also insurance for MOT and tyres, the cost of which can often take drivers by surprise.

You can choose to extend your Honda guarantee after the first year, and take advantage of Honda’s insurance and breakdown cover. Honda are even happy to take another make of car in part exchange, and are brilliant at helping you out with your budget.

The nice thing about buying a Used Honda is the assurance that Honda’s commitment to you doesn’t stop after you leave the showroom.
