How Much Does the 2015 Honda Accord Cost to Own?

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Honda Accord?

With an average list price of $17,300, the 2015 Accord costs about $6,400 less than the base price of a new Accord. Honda redesigned the Accord for 2018, so the 2019 version looks and feels different than the 2015 model. The 2019 has a stronger base engine and offers an optional turbo-four engine instead of a V6. The 2019 model also gets better gas mileage and has a much longer list of driver assistance features, including standard traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and driver drowsiness monitoring, along with available rear cross traffic alert, a head-up display, and blind spot monitoring. If you can afford it, the 2019 Accord is the better choice.

What Does Honda's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Honda offers two levels of certification for its certified pre-owned vehicles: HondaTrue Certified and HondaTrue Certified+. Both levels come with a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, roadside assistance, up to two oil changes within the first year of ownership, and a 90-day SiriusXM satellite radio trial subscription.

The vehicle’s model year determines which program and repair coverage it qualifies for. HondaTrue Certified covers vehicles from the 2014 through 2020 model years. For vehicles still under the new-car warranty, Honda extends coverage to four years from the original sale date or 48,000 miles. For vehicles outside the new-car warranty, Honda offers a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty. HondaTrue Certified+ is for 2018 to 2020 Hondas still under the new-car warranty. Honda extends these warranties to five years from the original sale date or 86,000 miles. Additional benefits may be available, so read Honda’s warranty page carefully.

According to our analysis, Honda’s CPO program is better than that offered by many other affordable carmakers. Still, Chevrolet, Kia, and Hyundai have better programs.
