-- According to a survey of Polk vehicle registrations, 75% of all Honda vehicles sold from 1988 to 2012 are still on the road. That places the Honda brand firmly in the top spot among all mainstream automakers when it comes to product longevity. At Motor Werks Honda, a premier Honda dealership serving the Chicago area (http://www.motorwerkshonda.com/
, the news confirmed what many have been saying for years: that Honda manufactures some of the most durable and long-lasting vehicles available.
Vehicles bearing the Honda brand maintain a very high residual value. Whether purchased new or used, drivers throughout the world have found that Honda models continue to be reliable, well-made, and mechanically sound.
Honda has earned several important industry value awards over the years, including the Best Mainstream Brand in the annual ALG Residual Value Awards. The ALG award, which recognizes the vehicles that are most likely to retain the highest percentage of their original price after a period of three years, has been given to Honda for 8 years out of the past 12 — more than any other automaker.
Just last year, Honda received the Best Resale Value Award from KBB.com
for several of their 2013 models, and the automaker was also recognized by Edmunds.com
with a Best Retained Value award.
This is a testament to the quality of the Honda brand, which continues to offer the driving public dependable, long-lasting vehicles that combine smart engineering and meticulous craftsmanship with excellent performance capabilities and outstanding fuel economy.
Honda earned the number one ranking in this determination of the longevity of non-luxury competing automotive brands based on IHS Automotive and Polk U.S. registration statistics for vehicles in operation from 1988 to 2012. It’s a safe bet that drivers can expect the same high level of quality in the new models currently available at dealerships such as Motor Werks Honda in Barrington, IL.
