Buying Your First Honda at Pacific Honda

The experience of purchasing a vehicle for the first time is one that most San Diego car owners will cherish for their entire lives. The rush of adrenaline, the pride of ownership, the joy of showing off the new wheels to friends and family - it’s a special feeling. But while there’s a lot to be excited about for first-time car buyers, it’s also common to have questions about how the car buying process works and what to expect at the dealership. At Pacific Honda, it’s our goal to make shopping for a new car, truck, SUV straightforward and stress-frees. We’ve got a wide selection of new and pre-owned Honda vehicles to choose from and a wonderful team of vehicle experts who are eager to help first-time shoppers along the way.

Still, you may be wondering how to make the right decision when you get to our San Diego Honda dealership. In addition to deciding on the exact make and model vehicle that best fits your needs, it’s important to consider any available safety, technology, and convenience features that may be essential to your lifestyle. If you’re unsure of how a specific feature works, it’s always a good idea to ask one of our friendly dealership staff members for clarification. Language and naming conventions can vary from vehicle to vehicle, which is why our team is always happy to break down vehicle components in simple terms. Moreover, there’s no better way to get a feel for a vehicle you’re considering than to take a test drive, so don’t hesitate to ask to get behind the wheel for a first-hand experience.

In addition to picking the right vehicle and available features, new car shoppers will need to consider the more practical aspects of the car buying process, like financing and insurance. As a general rule of thumb, you’ll want to make sure you bring a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance to the dealership. These are two essential pieces of information that are necessary to legally purchase a new vehicle, such as the 2016 Honda Accord.

After you’ve found the vehicle you’d like to buy, our vehicle consultants will help you through the financing process. It’s a smart idea to have a solid understanding of what you’re comfortable spending a new vehicle, and it’s crucial to have a form of down payment in order to take ownership. At Pacific Honda, we offer competitive financing options and can even help you get pre-approved by contacting us before you come down to our showroom.

At the end of the day, it’s our mission to help new car buyers leave our dealership excited about their purchase and confident in the auto shopping process. Whether you’re looking to get behind the wheel of a new Honda car or are in the market for a pre-owned Honda sedan, we’ve got what you’re looking for at Pacific Honda. Stop in and see us today!
