Why Does Everyone Recommend Honda and Toyota?
If you're interested in buying a used car and you've solicited advice from your friends, you've probably received many recommendations for Honda and Toyota models. Why are Honda and Toyota vehicles held in such high esteem by used-car shoppers? Should you really consider them over rivals? We have the answers. Find a used Honda for sale near you

Why Honda and Toyota?
People recommend Honda and Toyota models for their perceived reliability advantages over rivals. Honda and Toyota vehicles often score well in studies carried out by J.D. Power and Consumer Reports, suggesting they are highly reliable. This makes a Honda or Toyota model a good choice for a used car, since these models usually have a lot of life left in them, even if they've already covered 100,000 miles or more.

Drivers also recommend Honda and Toyota models for their familiarity. Many car owners are highly familiar with them. As Honda and Toyota reliability gained popularity throughout the 1970s and 1980s, some shoppers defected from domestic brands and chose Hondas or Toyotas instead. Many of those shoppers are still satisfied Honda and Toyota customers years later, which makes them prone to recommend Honda and Toyota models to friends or family.

Are They Really Better?
Unfortunately, the excellent reliability benefits of Honda and Toyota models have made their cars more expensive than most rivals on the used market. Are they really worth the extra cost?

To us, the answer is yes and no. Yes, it's true almost all Honda and Toyota models are highly reliable تیرآهن 14 . In order to have a reliable car, your only option used to be buying a Honda or a Toyota, but that's no longer the case. Today, many shoppers can find similar reliability from other Japanese brands (such as Nissan, Mazda and Subaru), Korean brands (such as Hyundai and Kia) and domestic brands (including Ford, Chrysler and Chevrolet).

Honda and Toyota models are still great choices for shoppers interested in a used car, but they shouldn't be the only choice.

Our Take
Although we often recommend Honda and Toyota models to people interested in buying a used car, we don't stop there. Armed with the knowledge that many of today's most reliable used cars come from a wide variety of brands, we also recommend everything from Ford and Mazda to Chevrolet and Hyundai. While we're impressed with Honda and Toyota reliability, we don't think shoppers interested in a dependable used car need to limit themselves to those two brands.

Generally the Honda Civic is a very reliable car if maintained properly.  تیرآهن 22 If you buy new, it should be a car you can drive for many years, with proper maintenance. But if you buy used, like any car, you don’t know the history, so you could end up with a lemon. Like any other used car, have your mechanic do an inspection before purchase. Is it the most reliable is hard to say. It’s near the top, but Toyota’s also make very good cars. I don’t think you can wrong with well maintained Honda Civic. We’ve had several in our family and they were always reliable, good cars. Good luck!

I bought a brand new 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport in February 2019. I drove a lot of miles which, is at about 30k right now. I noticed the rear floor lining is popping out under the rear right seat. The rear floor lining isn’t sitting flush against the bottom board of the car. So, because it isn’t laid flat there’s a gap. When the carpet gets stepped on, the hole that’s holding the lining underneath the plastic is stretching out causing the lining to pop out. Because the lining is underneath the front seats and the seat railing is bolted on top of the lining, it can’t be repositioned to get rid of the gap, unless all the front seats and railings get removed.
