Honda: The Lowest Total-Cost Vehicle on the Market

June 3rd, 2021 by

Driving your new Honda off the lot of Serra Honda O’Fallon, just outside of St. Louis, is only the first step in a journey of ownership. You use your car nearly every day, commuting to work in Scott, visiting McKendree to help your freshman move in, or taking the kids to the O’Fallon Family Sports Park on a long weekend. You’re planning on owning your Honda Civic or CR-V for many years — so it’s important to know the cost of the regular maintenance like standard Honda oil changes, tire rotations, fluid top-ups, and other servicing to keep your Honda car, truck or SUV running smoothly.

Luckily for you, a new study by We Predict has found that on the whole, 2021 Hondas are more affordable and require less maintenance over their ownership than most other vehicles on the market! Through quality engineering and a focus on longevity, the Honda lineup is the cheapest new car, SUV, or truck on the market. In fact, Honda Civics, CR-Vs, Accords, and Odysseys collectively cost half the average for cars in their segments. When you buy a new Honda in the St. Louis area, you’re making a great investment on the most reliable vehicle on the road.

2021 Honda Civic: The Compact Car with Lowest Service Cost

Let’s talk about We Predict’s methodology — how did they reach the conclusions that the 2021 Honda Civic is the lowest-servicing-price compact car available? We Predict collects and analyzes millions of data from real-world vehicle repairs, warranty actions, maintenance visits, and service campaigns, performed at U.S. dealerships, mechanics, and elsewhere.

Their rigorous research has shown that, on average, your 2021 Honda Civic (or newly redesigned 2022 Honda Civic) will require fewer oil changes and other service over its lifetime than other compact cars. And those savings will only compound as you continue to drive: We Predict found, based on an analysis of older vehicles, that maintenance costs increase 15 times after three years, and 20 times after five. By buying a new Honda Civic from Serra Honda O’Fallon, you’re not just getting a great deal now — you’re getting a great deal over the lifetime of your car.
