Car-Buying Myths at Pacific Honda

Buying a new vehicle is a huge financial decision, and it shouldn't be taken lightly. Luckily, our team at Pacific Honda is here to help. We do our best to take all the stress and indecision out of the car-buying process. If you have any concerns about how to pay for the car, our Honda financing center near Poway can assist you with applying for loans and budgeting. However, many of our new customers are skeptical about our Honda financing deals because of rumors they've heard about auto dealerships over the years. Keep reading to learn the truth about some of the most popular car-buying myths.

Common myths

  • Paying with cash gives you a better price
  • You shouldn't take the dealer's financing offers
  • The best deals are available at the end of the month

Car-Buying Myths

Before the internet, these car-buying myths used to spread from person to person much more easily.

For example, folks used to believe that the best car deals are offered at the end of every month. That's simply not accurate. Our Honda dealers give customers greats prices on new Honda cars and SUVs every day—no matter whether you visit us on the 1st or 31st.

Another myth we hear a lot is that customers get a better price if they pay with cash. Again, this isn't true. Whether you select one of our new or certified pre-owned Honda vehicles, our sales team promises to give you the best deal possible regardless of your payment method.

Before You Buy

Things to consider before you buy:

  • What's your monthly budget?
  • Do you want a new or pre-owned Honda vehicle?
  • Should you buy or lease?

So if you feel like you're finally ready to buy your next Honda vehicle, there are a few more things you should do before visiting us at 4761 Convoy Street.

First of all, figure out how much money you can spend per month on a car payment. If your budget is relatively small, consider purchasing a pre-owned Honda car instead of a new one. Or, ask one of our Honda dealers if leasing is a cheaper option than buying a vehicle outright.

If you come to Pacific Honda prepared with answers to these questions, we can help you find the perfect car for your lifestyle, whether it's a 2018 Honda Accord or a pre-owned Honda Fit.

So come to our San Diego Honda dealership today! Our friendly and professional team of Honda dealers can't wait to help you find the car of your dreams. If you have any pressing questions about our inventory or financing process prior to that, we encourage you to give our sales department a call at 866-637-2231.
