Honda Motor Company is a Japanese car manufacturer founded in 1946. As one part of Japan’s Big Three automakers, Honda started as a motorcycle engine maker and has grown to be one of the largest auto manufacturers in the world. 

With its Acura line, which was first released in 1986, Honda was the first Japanese manufacturer to make its own luxury offshoot brand. 

The following Honda models are available in the US:

Sedans: 

  • Civic
  • Insight
  • Accord
  • Civic SI Sedan
  • Accord Hybrid
  • Clarity Plug-In Hybrid
  • Clarity Electric
  • Clarity Fuel Cell

Coupes: 

  • Civic Coupe
  • Civic SI Coupe

Hatchbacks: 

  • Fit
  • Civic Hatchback

The Good

  • Dependability
  • Satisfaction
  • Efficiency
  • Safety

Dependability

Honda ranked above average on the latest JD Power Vehicle Dependability Study at #12 out of 31. Additionally, Polk Data found that 75 percent of Honda vehicles sold between 1988 and 2012 were still on the road in 2013, more than any other brand. 

Satisfaction

In the latest American Customer Satisfaction Index rankings, Honda placed very well; only four companies scored ahead of it: Volvo, Porsche, Lexus, and Subaru. This is great, especially considering that most of the these are luxury brands, not mainstream. 

Efficiency

Honda has one of the most fuel-efficient lineups when it comes to average mpg and has several sustainable vehicle options: 

  • Insight
  • Accord Hybrid
  • Clarity Plug-In Hybrid
  • Clarity Electric
  • Clarity Fuel Cell

The Insight was even named the 2019 Green Car of the Year. 

Safety

HondaSensing is the company’s safety tech line and it includes: 

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

The Bad

  • Takata Recall

Takata Recall

Many Honda models from 2001 to 2015 model years were included in the Takata airbag recall. However, Honda is not the only company involved in this industry-record recall. If you drive a Honda made during this time period, check your VIN with the company’s recall database to be sure you are safe.

The Bottom Line

Honda makes affordable, dependable cars, SUVs, and pickups. Its lineup has been given a bevy of awards for safety, the lowest 5-year cost to own, and best resale value. When you buy a Honda, you can expect that it will be with you for quite some time.

I've had my Honda Pilot for 7 years now and with 175K miles strong it is still running great. I love the size and how all 6 of us can go on a road trip and still have plenty of legroom. I love the seat warmers and the drop-down tv screen that we can put movies on for the kids on a long road trip

I purchased a Honda Accord in 2012 and I loved it. It was a great car and got great gas mileage. I was able to give the car to my son who still drives it today and it remains in great shape. I would recommend this car because I never had any issues with it. The only thing I had to do was regular maintenance on it. It has over 200,000 miles and it is still going strong. It is a mid size car which is great for travel or commuting to and from work. It also has a large trunk and room in the back seat.

We currently own two Honda Accord's at our home. We have one that is quite a bit older for our teenager and it has given us no problems and still runs great and the other one is still running great too. The older one has 150,000 miles on it and we haven't really had to take it in the shop for maintenance. We chose Honda's because they known to be reliable.
