New Honda Buying Guide


Hondas are known for their reliability. In addition to classic models, like the Accord and Civic, Honda has developed fancy, sporty SUVs and crossovers. Whether you are looking for a smaller crossover, like the HR-V or a full-sized Honda Pilot. Brickell has options for you if you are looking for next year's best model. Let's take a look at some of the options available to you when you purchase a new Honda from Brickell in Miami.

Why Honda manufactures great vehicles 

First and foremost, Honda has several benefits over other manufacturers. Every year, Honda consistently ranks well with JD Power. Honda frequently does exceptionally well in the Dependability award and the performance reward. The JD Power Dependability Award goes to manufacturers of cars whose owners have the fewest problems. The Performance Award goes to manufacturers with the highest design and performance reviews after the first 90 days of ownership. 

What options do you have to drive a new Honda off the lot? 

Leasing a new Honda 

Many people prefer to lease their new Honda. When you lease a new vehicle, you are basically renting the vehicle. There is a mileage limit for driving your new Honda, but typically, leasing a vehicle is a lot more affordable than buying a new Honda outright. Some of the benefits of leasing a new Honda include:

  • You get to drive the vehicle at its prime and it's a way to get a new car every couple of years.
  • Depending upon other financing factors, your down payment on a leased vehicle is often much smaller than it would be for buying the car outright.
  • You will have fewer repair costs, because most repair and maintenance costs will be included in the warranty. Your dealership may even have perks like free oil changes and other types of service.
  • If you drive your vehicle less than one thousand miles a month, leasing a car keeps your costs of driving to a minimum.
  • Many leasing contracts give the lessee the opportunity to buy the vehicle at the end of the lease. 
  • Leasing a new vehicle often opens up options for you to find more luxurious trims and features.

Buying a new Honda

Purchasing a new Honda is for people who put more than 1,000 miles a month on their vehicles. If you use your Honda to get to work, take frequent trips, and as a family car, purchasing a Honda is the right choice for you. If you choose to purchase a new Honda, Brickell will help you find the right financing options. Here are some tips for financing a new Honda:

  • Figure out what you want to spend on a monthly car payment. 
  • Start thinking about the vehicle that is right for your family and budget. Even though you had your heart set on that new Honda Pilot, an HR-V or a CR-V might have many of the features you are looking for and could also be a great car for your family.
  • With financing and other costs, get a true picture of the final sticker price on the vehicle you are going to buy. 
  • Spend some time test driving a few vehicles.
  • Consider trading in your previous car to get an even better price.

The best time of year to buy a car is during Q4 (October, November, and December). These are the months when Honda dealerships are starting to bring in next year's inventory and are looking to clear out as many current year models as possible. According to some sources, December will have the deepest discounts on MSRP, up to 6.1%.
