A new study out shows that 75% of Honda vehicles bought 25 years ago are still on the road.
That makes them among the elite brands, if not the very best, according to a Polk study.
“One of the most important considerations for a new vehicle purchase is how long that vehicle will last and this study demonstrates that Honda quality and reliability is not just part of our hard-earned reputation but represents our industry-leading performance on the road,” said Michael Accavitti, a senior vice president of American Honda, in a statement.
According to this article, “The claim is based on data from stats keepers Polk, which looked at auto registrations by brand from 1988 to 2012. It does not include Honda’s Acura brand, which is part of the 11% of cars over the period that fall into the luxury category.”
Closer to home at Northwest Honda, we know for a fact that people consider Hondas because of their incredible longevity and resale value.
“People want Hondas because they know they keep their value if they want to resell it down the road,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham. “If they have no plans to resell and want to pass the car down to their kids to drive or something, Honda is also the best choice. It’s great to see these stats back up what we see every day.”
