Buying a Honda Civic New vs Used

If you purchase a used Honda Civic that is 2 years old, then you could save $2,899 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $1,740. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used Civic models become available.

What About Honda Civic Insurance Costs?

The average cost to insure a Honda Civic is about $1,754 per year. This adds up to around $8,770 after 5 years of vehicle ownership. Unlike depreciation, this expense can often be lowered by shopping around for lower insurance premiums. Comparing quotes will ensure that you are not overpaying if you already own a Honda Civic.
