Used Vehicle FAQs


What is the best used Honda to buy?

The best used car to buy depends on your needs and goals. For example, if you need a reliable, family-friendly vehicle, a pre-owned Honda Odyssey minivan or Honda Pilot SUV is a great choice. If you want a fuel-efficient car for daily driving, a used Honda Civic or Accord Hybrid is an excellent option.


Should I buy a used car from a dealership
vs. private seller?

We recommend that you always buy a used car from a dealership vs. private seller or online car retailer. This is because every pre-owned car for sale on our lot has undergone a thorough inspection from our certified Honda technicians. Plus, our nearby Honda sales team knows these vehicles inside and out, so we can answer any questions you have. You won’t get this kind of expertise from a private seller or online car retailer.


What should I ask a dealership when buying a used car?

The most important questions you can ask about a used car for sale will relate to its history, maintenance and recent repair synopsis. The dedicated staff at our CA Honda dealer is eager to answer any questions you have about any used car you may have your eye on. Our goal is to provide you with a transparent, seamless used car-buying experience!


What’s good mileage for a used car in California?

It’s usually best to buy a low-mileage pre-owned vehicle, but high-mileage vehicles can make great purchases, so long as they’ve been routinely maintained. If you’re considering a high-mileage vehicle, ask for a vehicle history report as well as any maintenance receipts.
