Is it your first time car shopping? It’s natural to be nervous before you head into the dealership. This can be an especially nerve-wracking prospect if you’re a young woman. No matter how confident you may be, and whether you know a lot about cars or not, there is a bit of a stigma surrounding our gender and age.

Fortunately, at Island Honda, we are trained to meet the needs of all of 
customers, regardless of their experience in car-buying. We love helping the newest generation of auto lovers find the vehicles of their dreams, and we encourage you to come prepared with lots of questions. Your first car is a huge deal, and we understand that you will need a lot of information before you make a decision.


Not quite sure what you want? We’re happy to make suggestions, too. Take, for instance, the 2018 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L. Named the 2018 North American Car of the Year (for the third time in a row) this solid favorite is very popular. It’s a great choice if you’re commuting to and from work or school, but it also has plenty of cool features to keep you satisfied.

Stop on by Island Honda the next time you’re in Courtenay, BC. We’d love to help you find the vehicle you’ve always hoped for!
Are you in the market for a vehicle for your son or daughter to learn on? You want something reliable, with a proven track record for lasting for many years. It also needs to have amazing safety features. Since you’ll be buying it on top of your own car or truck, a preowned option would be ideal.

How about this great 2015 Honda Civic Sedan Touring? With just 48,183
kilometres to its name, it’s bound to be on the road for the long haul. In fact, as you may know, the model is famous for lasting over 300,000 kilometres for a lot of families.


Your teen will love the special extras in the Civic, like heated seats, a sunroof, and keyless entry. In addition, smart device integration helps them stay safely connected, and offers you peace of mind--they’ll always be just a phone call away. Driving.ca loved this Honda’s many luxurious features, giving it top marks.

A full array of airbags keep your young driver safe, and a backup camera gives them a bit of extra security as they’re learning the ropes. Stability control adds to this vehicle’s amazing amenities, and a passenger seat sensor protects younger children who might ride up front.

in to Island Honda today, and be sure to bring your teen to test drive this fabulous car!
 
Are you looking for an excellent first car? Perhaps you just graduated from college and got a new job you’ll need to commute to. Alternatively, maybe you have been working for awhile, driving a hand-me-down vehicle that is on its last leg. Either way, it’s time to invest in something for your future.

Being young and female can make 
car buying an anxiety-ridden process. You know things about vehicles, but it’s hard not to fear that you’ll be treated poorly because of your age or gender. Don’t worry! There are a few ways to ensure you’ll get what you need out of the shopping experience.

1. Ask questions.
Know what you want and be ready to seek the answers to whatever queries you might have.

2. Be prepared to walk away.
If you’re just not seeing what you’re looking for or don’t like the way you’re being sold to, it’s time to leave!

3. Shop at a professional dealership.
Only patronize locations with courteous sales staff who see you as an equal, end of story!



For your first car, a vehicle like the 2018 Honda Civic LX could be a great choice. It has a cool new design and plenty of features to keep you feeling comfortable and pampered. Smart device integration keeps you connected, and heated front seats are all the rage and perfect for chilly mornings.
