Finding the Best Cars for the Money in Metro Milwaukee

  • Honda Fit

    We have yet to find a driver in the Metro Milwaukee area who isn’t concerned with getting the best car for the money when shopping for a new car. Honda has built up a reputation for delivering value to drivers across their entire lineup, and all it takes is a look at Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy Awards and U.S. News & World Report’s Best Vehicle Brand Awards to see the advantage Honda has over so many of its competitors. We’ve found that reliability, value, and pricing are three of the biggest factors that lead to great value; read on to see how Honda fares in each category.

Reliability

While the answer to “What makes a vehicle one of the best cars for the money?” might vary from person to person, we think reliability is at the top of the list for many. After all, a reliable car is one that won’t lead to unexpected expenses; while it’s impossible to know the future, auto reviewers like J.D. Power and Associates and Cars Direct have repeatedly praised Honda for dependability:

  • Cars Direct assembled a list of smart choices for budget-aware drivers, and two of Honda’s most popular vehicles made their list: the Accord and the Civic.
  • J.D. Power and Associates conducts an annual dependability study that looks at how cars have fared over the past three years. They gave the 2013 Honda Fit the highest ranking in their analysis of small cars.

Whether past or present models, the Accord, Civic, and Fit have been regarded as some of the most dependable vehicles in their class—and we haven’t even touched on their value or pricing yet, which routinely delivers more features for the money when compared with competitors like the Camry, Corolla, and Rio.

Value

While reliability can be categorized—just look at how often a vehicle has had required repairs—value is a little tougher to define. Luckily, groups like Kelley Blue Book and U.S. News & World Report make it a business of analyzing the values of cars, and Honda has earned some special recognition from these value experts.

  • U.S. News & World Report has compiled a list of the top auto brands, with Honda being named the Best SUV Brand for 2016; they praise the 2016 Honda HR-V for its “flexible cargo capacity, comfortable seats, smooth ride and great outward visibility.” The Pilot and CR-V each also received recognition from the editors at U.S. News.
  • Kelley Blue Book has an annual Best Buy Awards series that names their best pick for value in each class and overall. The 2016 Pilot, Odyssey, CR-V, and Civic each topped their respective classes in the 2016 Best Buy Awards,* and the 2016 Civic was also named the 2016 Best Overall Buy in the auto world.**
  • It’s not just the individual vehicles receiving recognition; Kelley Blue Book’s 2015 Brand Image Awards named Honda as the Best Value Brand in the non-luxury auto market.***

It would be one thing if the Honda lineup’s awards all came from the same place, but the diverse selection of awards praising six different Honda vehicles for their value and praising the Honda brand as a whole should say something to you.

Pricing

Many drivers know that value and reliability are important when shopping for a new car, but we also know that the price can be just as important for a driver. After all, your budget can only stretch so far. Honda has some of the most affordably priced vehicles on the market, though; see the prices for the vehicles we’ve mentioned and understand why we think they’re some of the best cars for the money around Milwaukee:
