Why do Hondas have such good resale value? In addition to tech-savvy features like the Honda Sensing® suite, outstanding fuel efficiency, and consistently high safety scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a new report from Automotive News states that Honda has the lowest vehicle service costs in its respective class for the 2021 model year.
Further building on its reputation for both the low cost of ownership and superior dependability, Honda bested the likes Hyundai, Buick, and Toyota for the least amount of service costs over the first three months (or 90 days) of ownership.
According to James Davies at We Predict—a company that monitors automotive data relating to maintenance, repairs, warranty milestones, and service campaigns—Honda had the lowest service costs for “basically everything that’s not the result of a collision.” The folks at We Predict obtained their data from “actual service interactions” that were “performed at U.S. franchised dealerships, independent service centers, and other facilities.” Based on the data for repairs and service costs, Automotive News reported the following figures below.
Honda service and warranty costs were $21 through the first 90 days of ownership.
Hyundai service and warranty costs were $22 through the first 90 days of ownership.
Buick service and warranty costs were $24 through the first 90 days of ownership.
Toyota service and warranty costs were $24 through the first 90 days of ownership.
While LX and Sport trim levels come standard equipped with a 16-valve, VTEC® in-line four-cylinder engine mated to a smooth-shifting CVT, the EX and Touring models feature a turbocharged in-line four-cylinder for an extra boost of acceleration.
