Are you here because it's time for a new vehicle? You are in luck as we are a trusted and qualified Honda dealer in Minot, and you'll find the latest offerings from your favorite manufacturer, such as sedans, SUVs, and more. When shopping with Ryan Honda, you can leave the heavy-lifting to us, and we'll guide you through the experience seamlessly. While some may believe that having the latest vehicles is the most important thing for any dealership, they often they forget about something equally as important––a hardworking and knowledgeable team. The last thing you need is unanswered questions before you invest in a vehicle that you'll be driving for years to come. So when you're shopping with us, ask as many questions as you'd like.
Honda's lineup includes over a dozen models, and you'll find sedans, SUVs, hybrids, and more. Within this lineup, familiar favorites such as the Honda Civic and Honda Accord can be found, continuing a legacy that goes back to the 1970s. The Civic and Accord are two models that immediately come to mind when people hear the name "Honda" because of their longstanding presence in the market. With the Civic and Accord, drivers can look forward to incredible fuel efficiency and outstanding reliability, all while staying at a relatively low price.
If sedans aren't your thing, then you'll be pleased to know that Honda produces plenty of SUV models to choose from. Honda's lineup includes SUVs ranging from commuter-friendly subcompacts to family-friendly midsize models. At the top of the list are the Honda Pilot and Honda Passport, and should you purchase either of these, you'll not only get phenomenal performance, but you'll get the most cargo space compared to the other SUVs in the lineup and by a fair margin.
Compact SUVs such as the Honda CR-V are constantly held in high regard for their efforts to blend efficiency with increased performance, and there's also a hybrid variant for extra savings on fuel. There is a reason why the CR-V is among the most popular vehicles that we sell. On the other hand, the Honda HR-V is one of the most cost-effective vehicles in Honda's lineup, achieving stellar fuel economy ratings yet offering more cargo space than any sedans. And despite its small size, its optional all-wheel drive makes it a great fit for Minot winters.
Looking further into the lineup, you'll find the Honda Odyssey, Honda's flagship minivan that dates back to the early 1990s. With the Odyssey's massive interior, this minivan can offer vast amounts of versatility, sometimes more than the SUVs offered. However, if you're looking for a pickup truck, then the Honda Ridgeline has got you covered. Lastly, there are plenty of electrified models within Honda's lineup, including hybrid versions of popular nameplates from the Civic to the Accord, as well as dedicated electrified models such as the Honda Insight.
The experience of shopping for a new vehicle is similar to that of purchasing a used one, but also on a different level entirely. Sometimes, there's a common misconception that first-time shoppers should avoid new vehicles, but that's not true. New vehicles are recommendable to both new and experienced drivers because there are many benefits. There are a few things that you should keep in mind before you purchase a new vehicle.
Starting with the good––your new Honda vehicle will come with both a 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and a 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty. Many drivers will agree that there's no better way to protect your investment than having not one but two warranties to ensure your vehicle's components are protected against unforeseen malfunction. Plus, shopping for a new vehicle means that you'll always have access to the latest and greatest offerings from Honda, loaded with all the newest technology and safety features.
As for some of the negatives associated with purchasing a new vehicle, it's important to note what depreciation is. Vehicle depreciation is when the value of your new automobile drops over time, starting from the minute you leave the dealership lot, and there's no way around it––your new vehicle will always face depreciation. Modern cars last longer than ever before, and depreciation is no longer a massive drop the moment you drive off the lot, but it remains something to consider when buying new.
For many drivers, shopping for a used vehicle is far more common. Maybe it's because you're trying to save money or interested in a vehicle that isn't in production anymore. Whatever your reasoning, it's a viable way of shopping. Looking into the used market reveals a wider selection than the new offerings, and you have far more flexibility in how you filter out your choices. For example, if you want a Honda Pilot but you want to save the most money possible, you can purchase an older model at a fraction of the cost of a newer one, and the same can be said for every vehicle in Honda's lineup. You may even be able to afford a larger vehicle or a higher trim of the same vehicle than if you were buying new.
Of course, shopping used commonly means you will not get the same level of factory warranties, and if you're not shopping at a reputable dealership, you may not know the full extent of a vehicle's history. However, at Ryan Honda of Minot, we include a free CARFAX vehicle history report with every pre-owned vehicle that we sell. Shopping for a used car at an affiliated Honda dealer also means that you can take advantage of Honda's Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program to get a used vehicle that has been carefully inspected and comes with manufacturer warranties. CPO Honda vehicles are the perfect middle ground for those who don't want to purchase new but are perhaps cautious about the pre-owned experience. However, there's no denying that used and CPO vehicles will be more affordable and the preferred way to go for many drivers.
