Honda’s history dates back long before its cars were introduced to American drivers in 1969. Soichiro Honda founded the company in Japan in 1949, the same year that Honda’s first motor vehicle was born. The vehicle? The D-Type motorcycle. The first Honda with four wheels would not arrive until 1963 when the T360 mini truck was unveiled for the Japanese market. But how did Honda become the brand we know today? Following World War II, Soichiro Honda used his experience in manufacturing automotive parts and began using recycled motors as the basis for powering a fuel-efficient and lightweight motorbike.
Over the next ten years, Honda found success in a shorter time than most, thanks to the immense success of its motorbikes. After Honda began selling these bikes in the North American market in 1959, the brand turned its attention to building four-wheeled vehicles. The efforts Honda poured into the development of such cars went in several directions, from the consumer-friendly market to the more outrageous Formula 1 cars Honda would create and enter into historic races, including the 1965 Mexican Grand Prix. This race was a turning point for the manufacturer, with Honda and its legendary RA272 cementing themselves in history with the first Formula 1 win to be claimed by a non-European team.
It was in the 1970s when some of Honda’s longest-running nameplates were born. Are you familiar with the Civic and the Accord? If so, that’s no surprise. These small Honda cars took the market by storm in the 1970s as many people began shopping for family-friendly vehicles that didn’t cost too much money. The Honda Civic, which is still a common car today, first appeared on the market in 1972, which means there have been over 50 years of this legendary sedan. Similarly, the Honda Accord was released in 1976 and is still a common sight on the roads today thanks to its reputation as a reliable and affordable sedan that’s perfect for commuters.
In the 1980s, Honda began manufacturing its vehicles in America, which means the manufacturer no longer had to worry about import fees. It was a few years later when Honda launched the Acura luxury brand. Acura has no presence in Japan, and that’s because it’s a product of the American Honda Motor Company. Throughout the following years, Honda would continue creating influential vehicles. For instance, the Honda Insight was the first hybrid vehicle available in America when it was launched in 2000. Today, Honda is stronger than ever, and although Soichiro Honda is no longer with us, his legacy remains and will continue for generations.
You already know there’s no shortage of automotive manufacturers, so why should you shop for a used Honda? Honda is a brand with an unwavering reputation for the things people care about: value, reliability, and longevity. Honda vehicles are known for being long-lasting machines, and you can find people driving around in Honda vehicles from thirty or more years ago that are still going strong.
Because Honda has such a presence in America, that also benefits Honda drivers because having easier access to spare parts can make fixing your car both quicker and less costly. This is something many people don’t realize when they buy a vehicle and then find themselves waiting longer than they’d like for a part that ships from Germany, Italy, or Japan––you get the idea. This ability to get back on the road more cost-effectively can make a large difference in your life, not to mention that saving money on a used Honda vehicle doesn’t mean you’re not getting a great experience. A great example is that most recent Honda vehicles come with intuitive infotainment tech, and if used Honda models are anything, it’s fuel-efficient.
