Why Buy Pre-Owned | Vallejo, CA
Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, you’re in a wonderful location to explore the West Coast. Living in Vallejo means you can take weekend road trips to Los Angeles, Highway 1, northern California’s national forests, Yosemite, or the Pacific Northwest. You need an affordable, fuel-efficient vehicle that matches your travel-focused lifestyle. We at Avery Greene Honda recommend buying a used Honda.
 

Efficient Performance

 
California is a huge state, and you can spend many hours in the car driving to your sightseeing destinations. You don’t want to burn through tanks and tanks of gasoline on every vacation! Drive a car that conserves gasoline, such as a used Honda from Avery Greene Honda.
For example, the 2019 Honda Fit averages 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway with its continuously variable transmission.[1]

 

Affordable Rides

 
Buying a used Honda instead of a brand-new Honda can save you money, too. A pre-owned car that has already depreciated in value will be cheaper than the same model fresh off the assembly line. For instance, the starting MSRP of the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback is thousands of dollars more than what you’d pay for a comparable used 2017 or 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback. The more money you save on your car, the more you can spend on souvenirs and fine dining at your destination.

 

Safe Travels

 
Safety should also be a major priority if you spend a lot of hours traveling in your car. Pick a model that’s durable, well-engineered, and can help protect you in collisions. The 2020 Honda Accord, for instance, earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA[2] and was an IIHS Top Safety Pick.[3] Plus, recent Honda models offer intelligent diver-assistance technology in its Honda Sensing® Suite.

Which Type of Vehicle Is Right for Me? | Vallejo, CA
Avery Greene Honda has a range of vehicle types for sale, from compact hatchbacks like the Honda Fit to three-row minivans like the Honda Odyssey. With over a dozen models in the current Honda lineup, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. We suggest you start by choosing the type of vehicle, whether that’s a coupe, sedan, hatchback, crossover, SUV, minivan, or pickup truck.
 
Should I Buy A Honda SUV Or A Truck?
 

Need a strong, spacious vehicle that can fit your family and can tow a trailer? You’ll want either a large SUV like the Honda Passport or a pickup truck like the Honda Ridgeline. Here are the main differences between the two vehicle types.
 
Strength And Utility
 

The 2022 Honda Passport and Ridgeline can both tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, so there’s no difference in strength there. What does differ is the advantage that having a truck bed provides for hauling dirty, heavy materials. The easy access and utility of a Honda truck with a dual-action tailgate makes hauling lumber, bags of mulch, bricks, and furniture a lot easier than in an SUV. The 2022 Ridgeline has a payload capacity of around 1,500 pounds.
 
Stability On The Road
 

Pickup trucks carry most of their weight in the front end, while SUVs have their weight evenly distributed across their body. If you’re not carrying something heavy in the bed, the lopsided weight distribution of a front-heavy pickup truck makes it more likely to spin out or fishtail on slippery roads. SUVs typically more balanced, responsive driving dynamics. Either way, you’ll want to opt for all-wheel drive for your Honda SUV or truck.
 
Seating Space And Comfort
 

The two-row Honda Pilot and Passport SUVs can seat up to five people — as can the Ridgeline in its four-door cab. These models all offer comparable passenger space in the first row, but the SUVs are a bit more spacious in the second row. You’ll want a Honda SUV if you need more legroom and shoulder room in the back seat for larger passengers.
 
If you want to seat three more people, you can opt for the available third row of seats in the Pilot or Passport — something the Ridgeline does not offer.
 
Should I Buy A Honda SUV Or Sedan?
 

If you don’t need to tow or haul large loads and only need seating for 3-4 people, should you buy a sedan like the Honda Accord or a small crossover like the Honda HR-V? Both types of models are built on the same platforms with the same unibody constructions, but there are key differences between them.
 
Driving Dynamics
 

You’ll notice a difference in how it feels to pilot a sedan compared to a small SUV. Crossovers like the CR-V have more ground clearance than sedans do and have a taller ride height, giving you better visibility while driving. Sedans sit closer to the pavement; this lower center of gravity gives them more stability but also makes it harder to see around large vehicles or obstructions around you. You’re also going to find all-wheel drive available on more Honda SUVs than on sedans.
 
Cargo Space
 

Crossovers SUVs offer more space for your luggage because of their larger rear ends. The total cargo volume in the trunk of the 2022 Accord measures 16.7 cubic feet. That’s far less than the smallest Honda crossover, the HR-V, which has 24.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 58.8 cubic feet with those seats folded down (FWD model).
 
Fuel Economy
 

Because sedans are smaller than crossover SUVs, they weigh less and thus typically have better fuel economy rates. For example, the 2022 Honda Civic sedan averages 40 mpg on the highway [1], whereas the 2022 Honda HR-V averages 34 mpg in the same conditions.[2] The same goes for hybrid Honda models, as the 2022 Accord Hybrid averages 48 mpg in stop-and-go traffic [3], while the CR-V Hybrid averages 40 mpg in city driving.[4]
