Shopping for a used car is something everyone goes through at least once. Looking at different models and specs gets overwhelming, especially if you have chosen a brand of vehicle but cannot decide on a model. If you are a fan of Honda or have heard of its durability and efficiency - down below, you will find our picks for some of the most reliable Honda models throughout recent years.
2008-2016 Honda Civic
The most popular model made by Honda is the Civic. It's a sedan, offering everything an ordinary car buyer is looking for: comfort, reliability, storage space, and cheap repairs. One of the beloved model years is the 2012 edition. Repair shops, mechanics, and owners praise it as one of the best cars to maintain and drive. In addition to that, it does 31 miles per gallon combined, 28 mpg in the city, and 38 mpg on highways.
The usual price of the Civic 2008-2016 models differs from $7-8,000 to $25-30,000 for newer models. You can also find used ones with almost no miles on them for a great price.
2010-2020 Honda CR-V
Our pick for an SUV manufactured by Honda is the CR-V. While older versions from 2010 might seem like a risky purchase because of their age, it's quite the opposite. It holds against its age and continues to deliver excellent performance and efficiency. Equipped with an AWD system and a 180 HP engine - 23 MPG combined - ready for all terrain and situations. The 2010 model is priced at around $11,000 used.
If you are still not convinced to try out the older models, the 2020 CR-V is a great pick. Despite not being on the road for that long, it's widely adored by owners. It has a combustion engine and hybrid option for those who want a plug-in. The 2020 model is a great option for someone looking for a newer version of the popular CR-V.
Most Reliable Honda Engine
Looking for the most reliable engine made by Honda, despite the year and model? The Honda K20 and K24 are some of the most reliable engines ever built. They come in vehicles from 2000 to around 2015, like the Civic, Acord, Acura, and more.
The K20 (i-VTEC) is an inline 4-cylinder, 2L engine making - depending on other components - making 150-221 HP/131-151 lb-ft. It has a lot of different side models and adjustments through the years. And the K24 (i-VTEC) is an inline 4-cylinder, 2.4L making, anywhere from 158 to 205 HP. Both are very tunable and powerful, but most importantly, reliable.
Honda makes a lot of good cars and engines, and depending on what you are looking for, there will be something for you. We advise you to look around for options and communicate with your mechanic or local repair shop to make the best decision.
