CARFAX RISK FACTOR STATISTICS FOR HONDA (US IMPORTS)
CARFAX Statistics show that the risk factors for U.S. exported Honda cars include recall, accident and airbag deployment history.
Cars with a history of a recall status are cars which had a pending status for a recall. The question whether these cars were actually sent back for improvements can make a great difference in whether to buy a vehicle or not. Since recalls can affect the functionality and safety of the vehicle significantly, it poses a great difference in financial value as well. Currently, there are 19,691 U.S. exported Honda cars in Europe with such a recall history. Make sure you buy a car that matches your expectations and doesn’t deliver surprises.
Accident history… it sounds like a severe risk factor, but it is one that many cars have been exposed to. Did you know that you can check whether a car was ever in an accident with CARFAX? For used cars which were exported from the U.S., it may be much more difficult to uncover the history, but CARFAX knows that at least 19,342 Honda cars, or, 50% of these vehicles have been involved in an accident. Logically, cars that were ever in an accident carry a different value. Know what you buy with CARFAX.
What happens to cars after their airbag has deployed? Well, normally these cars need to be repaired by professionals who can recover the original safety that was provided. But how do you know this is the case? That is the reason we have included airbag deployment as a risk factor. We have detected that it is always important to control whether the functionality of the vehicle is that which is promised. While doing so, we have detected cars that had non-functioning airbags and even airbags that were filled with everything, but an actual protection mechanism. Presently, there are 4,416 U.S. exported Honda cars in Europe with a history of Airbag deployment. Check your car with CARFAX.
