2 Reasons Why You Should Consider Buying A New Honda Civic, CR-V Or Accord

Honda gets honored as the number one brand for resale and reliability. See why the 2019 Civic, CR-V and Accord are most-awarded by KBB.


The Honda brand has always been known for its resale value and reliability and the awards keep coming for the Japanese automaker. Honda had been named the #1 Most Awarded Brand of 2019 by Kelley Blue Book for its ongoing reputation for strong resale value and reliability. If you are thinking of buying a 2019 Honda Civic, CR-V or Accord, it will likely be worth more than the competition when you sell it or trade it in, and you will take it to shop less for unscheduled repairs.

Honda beat Toyota #2, Subaru #3, Hyundai #4, and Lexus #5 who were the top-5 most-awarded brands. In addition, four Honda models, the 2019 Honda Civic compact, compact CR-V SUV, Accord sedan, and Odyssey minivan all scored Kelley Blue Book's 10 Most Awarded Cars 2019 list, more than any other brand.

Why are these Honda vehicles so highly awarded?

They also take the winners from all of the company's 2019 awards programs, including the Best Buy Awards, Best Resale Value Awards, 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, Brand Image Awards, and accolade lists, such as Best Family Cars.

One reason to not buy an Accord, CR-V or Civic...

The ongoing oil gas dilution issue on the 1.5T engine. The extra year of warranty does not make up for an engine that can catastrophically fail at any moment. While it may not be happening yet, Honda is yet to really address the issue. The open question in my mind is if this problem continues into the 2020 model year.

For those that must own a Honda, at least look for a model with a different engine.
