Kansas City Honda Dealer Frank Ancona Honda Reviews: Consumer Reports Naming Honda Fit As The Small Car With The Best Overall Value In 2011

Posted By Jason Heard, Sales Manager at Frank Ancona Honda

We are excited to announce consumer reports’ review of the Honda Fit as the small car with the best overall value in 2011. The Fit also emerged as the best overall value among some 200 different vehicles analyzed, ranging from small cars to luxury sedans.

According to Consumer Reports
Although the Jeep Wrangler is well known for its off-road capability, it was named as the overall worst value.
Consumer Reports mined performance, reliability, and ownership cost data to calculate value scores for some 200 different vehicles, ranging from small cars like the Honda Fit to luxury sedans such as the BMW 750Li.

Scores are calculated based on the five-year owner cost for each vehicle along with Consumer Reports’ road-test score and the publication’s own predicted reliability. Five-year owner cost estimates factor in depreciation, fuel costs, insurance premiums, interest on financing, maintenance and repairs, and sales tax. Depreciation is by far the largest owner-cost factor.

In all, eight different categories of vehicles were evaluated including small cars, family cars, upscale sedans, luxury sedans, sporty cars, wagons and minivans, small SUVs and midsized SUVs. Within categories, models were ranked by value score, above or below the average.

Where to find the best values
Small, affordable cars are often considered value choices. But some small cars are far better choices than others. At $16,000, the Honda Fit is the top value of more than 200 vehicles in Consumer Reports’ analysis; the similarly priced Chevrolet Aveo is the worst value in its class, with higher owner costs, a low test score, and below-average reliability.

Several family cars and small SUVs also stand out as good values, including the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Sonata, Subaru Forester, and several Toyotas, notably the Camry, Prius, and RAV4.

Small and family cars tend to provide the most value for the money, while luxury cars as a class are more expensive to own. But there are always exceptions. For instance, Consumer Reports’ best-value luxury car, the V-8-powered Hyundai Genesis 4.6, has a value score that is the same as the average for all cars.

Even some SUVs can be relatively good values, but midsize models tend to be more expensive over time due to worse fuel economy and higher purchase prices. Still, several models scored better than average, including the Hyundai Santa Fe, the four-cylinder Kia Sorento, and the V-6 and hybrid versions of the Toyota Highlander.

When including its Lexus and Scion brands, Toyota led in best values with 11 models. Seven best-value models come from Hyundai and its Kia brands. Five best-value models are from Honda and Acura.

USA Today Announces: Honda Odyssey earns top five-star safety rating

No Comments on USA Today Announces: Honda Odyssey earns top five-star safety rating

Once again, Honda comes up on top when it comes to safety ratings.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recently awarded the 2011 Honda Odyssey with a five star rating from their new crash-test rating system.

Honda Odyssey earns top five-star safety rating

The 2011 Honda Odyssey received an overall rating of five stars in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s new crash-test rating system, the safety agency announced today.

The Odyssey’s overall composite score is composed of a five-star frontal, four-star rollover and a five-star rating for the combined side pole and barrier tests. The side barrier test is an area where other vehicles have shown weakness with the safety agency’s new testing format. The side pole test simulates a 20-mph side-impact crash into a 10-inch-diameter pole or tree at a 75-degree angle just behind the A-pillar on the driver’s side.

According to Honda, the four-star rollover rating is actually the highest rating a vehicle of this body type can achieve under NHTSA’s testing methodology:

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently announced the Odyssey received a top score of Good in all of its crash tests but hasn’t completed a roof-strength test that is required to earn the Top Safety Pick designation.

Out of the more than 50 models NHTSA has tested so far, only 11 have earned a five-star rating under the revamped system: Acura MDX, BMW 5 Series, Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Silverado, Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, GMC Sierra, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Volvo XC60. NHTSA still has few more models left to test for 2011.

Here are some reviews that I would like to share from our customers at Frank Ancona Honda in Olathe, Kansas.  The first review is from Erin B. of Gardner, on Yelp.com

Although, I didn’t buy my Honda at Frank Ancona, I did take it there for an oil change. I called and they were able to get my car in that afternoon, unlike some other dealerships. I pulled in and my car was taken car of quickly. They have a WONDERFUL waiting room. There is coffee, juice, snacks, children’s books/toys, and a clean environment. They also gave my Honda a quick car wash before bringing it back to me. I highly recommend this dealership!

Awesome place. They really take care of you here. They get the job done, and do it right the very first time! 5 stars all the way!

by Soccer Mom 03/02/2009

I have been going to F.A Honda’s Service dept for the past 6 months or so. I have been very pleased with the Service. David Ricketts is very professional and honest. He does not recommend unnecessary maintainence work to be done. Being a single mom and someone who doesn’t know too much about car maintenance, I’m very comfortable taking my van to that Service dept. I know they will NOT ” take me for a ride”.
