Finding the Best Cars for the Money in West Michigan

Most West Michigan drivers looking for a new car want to get the best cars for the money, whether they are thinking about it or not—after all, who doesn’t want to save money on their next car? Honda vehicles have built up a reputation for dependability and affordability for years, and we think that some of the best cars for the money are right here at West Michigan Honda Dealers.

But first we need to talk about what makes Honda’s lineup of affordable cars good investments.


What makes a car one of the best ones for the money? It can be different factors to different drivers, but in general we think that reliability is the top factor, indicating whether you’ll need to make repairs on a vehicle and have unexpected expenses. While it’s impossible to predict the future, there are organizations that look at past reliability performance and rank automakers on what that says for their status as makers of dependable cars—and Honda has received some important attention from them.

  • Cars Direct compiled a list of reliable cars for budget-conscious drivers, and two Honda vehicles made their list of six cars. They suggested drivers seeking a reliable new or used vehicle consider the Civic or the Accord.
  • J.D. Power and Associates produces their vehicle dependability study every year, looking at cars that have been owned for three years or so and asking drivers about the frequency and severity of repair work needed. The 2013 Honda Fit took the top spot in their small car analysis.

The Fit, Civic, and Accord have been regarded as dependable vehicles for years, but they are just a part of the picture. Honda also has cars that offer an incredible level of value when put up against their competition.


It can be tougher to talk about value than reliability, but there are auto experts and reviewers who evaluate the overall value of a brand as well. Looking at vehicles like the 2016 Honda Odyssey and Pilot and how they compare to competitors gives these organizations a perspective beyond just the price and features (we did a side-by-side analysis of the Odyssey and a top competitor in our 2016 Chrysler Town & Country review).

  • Kelley Blue Book produces a series of Best Buy Awards to let drivers know what some of the best cars for the money are, and multiple Honda vehicles took home trophies in their classes in the 2016 Best Buy Awards, including the Pilot, Odyssey, CR-V, and Civic.* The 2016 Honda Civic also took home the top prize of Best Overall Buy.**

We think these awards make it clear that Honda is one of the best brands when it comes to automotive performance and dependability.

At the end of the day, value and reliability often play second fiddle to price—after all, most drivers can only afford to spend up to a certain amount on their vehicles. One of the best parts about the current Honda lineup is that it delivers incredible value and dependability at affordable pricing. See for yourself:
