Advantages of Buying Used Cars at Keyes Honda

advantages of buying used cars

At Keyes Honda, we believe that everyone deserves to own a safe, reliable vehicle. We understand that sometimes people may not be able to afford one of our brand-new models, however. If that's the case, we guide customers to our inventory of pre-owned Honda cars instead. Over the years, used cars have gotten a bad reputation. We're here to say that that rep is completely undeserved. We stand behind every pre-owned vehicle on our lot.

Benefits of Buying Used/Pre-Owned Vehicles

Benefits at a glance:

  • Lower base cost
  • Reduced insurance rates
  • Generous warranties
  • Special financing rate

There are plenty of benefits to buying a used car instead of a newer model. The most obvious is that it's a great way to save money. For example, the base price of a pre-owned Honda Civic is thousands of dollars less than a 2018 model. In fact, Keyes Honda has several cars that you can take home for less than $12,000 total!

In addition to base costs, customers can also expect to pay far less in sales tax and even auto insurance rates. Plus, our dealership at 5355 Van Nuys Boulevard offers special financing rates on select models of our pre-owned Honda vehicles. This makes buying a used Honda car a great option for college students, working families, and anyone else on a tight budget.

Used or Pre-Owned Vehicle Misconceptions

Some people are hesitant to buy a pre-owned car because they think it will require more trips to our Honda service department for repairs. That couldn't be further from the truth! All of our certified pre-owned Honda cars undergo a rigorous 182-point inspection before going up for sale. We also only sell cars that are less than 6 years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer.

Misconceptions at a glance:

  • Used cars aren’t as reliable as newer models
  • Used vehicles need more repairs
  • Dealerships try to sell customers lemons

Each pre-owned Honda auto also comes with a 7-year limited powertrain warranty and a free vehicle history report. As if all of that wasn't enough, Keyes Honda also gives customers a free three-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio.

So if it sounds like a certified pre-owned Honda car or SUV is right for you, come visit our dealership in Van Nuys, CA. Our convenient location is also a short trip from the surrounding cities of Los Angeles and San Fernando. We're open every day of the week, too, so it's easy to find some time to come check out all of our great Honda models.
