Common Car Buying Myths at Pacific Honda

car buying myths

There are a lot of elements involved when purchasing a new vehicle. Starting with deciding whether or not you want one of our pre-owned or new Honda cars down to the features you want inside, there are a lot of decisions that need to be made. At Pacific Honda, we try to ease your worries by having an arsenal of tools ready to help you through every step along the way. We know that before you give us a call or come into our dealership near the San Diego area, you may have asked for advice from your peers on how to go about the car buying process. While some of that information could be helpful, there are a lot of car buying myths out there that we would like to warn you about.

Common Car Buying Myths

One myth that seems to be heard quite often is that first generation models should be avoided because consumers haven't properly tested them. This myth is not true at all because all vehicles go through strenuous testing by both manufacturers and possible consumers before ever hitting the market. First generation cars are often feature exciting and new technology, which makes them a great candidate for your first car.

Another myth is that online reviews is all you need to make a choice on the car you want. While the Internet is making it a lot more convenient to do research on a new vehicle, car reviews are not always reliable because they could be sponsored reviews that cause the review to be more favorable than it needs to be. Also, you will never know if a vehicle is right for you unless you take it on a test drive.

At Pacific Honda, our San Diego area dealers can set up with a test-drive in some of our best cars, such as the 2017 Honda Civic or the 2017 Honda CR-V.
