Welcome to the “real world,” new graduate! Leaving school and joining the workforce is always an adjustment, but times are difficult for new grads now more than ever. A little financial relief can go a long way and Honda is here to help graduates, pandemic or not. If you didn’t know about Honda’s College Grad Program, now is the perfect time to take advantage or share with someone you know. Let’s take a look at the benefits of the program. 


1. Get $500 toward any new Honda vehicle

You’ve just graduated, landed that first job, and now you’re ready to bring home a reliable Honda that you can see yourself driving for years. Well why not get $500* toward any new Honda vehicle while you’re at it?! Honda’s lineup of new 2020 models gives you plenty of reliable cars to choose from. Looking for an efficient, stylish, sedan? How about a sporty, compact SUV? No matter what your perfect post-college car is, we’ve got you covered. 


2. You have the option to defer the first payment for 90 days

We understand that buying a new vehicle is a huge responsibility. In order to make things a little easier, Honda allows you to defer your first payment for 90 days*. The transition into the job market or graduate school after college can be a challenging one, especially in today’s climate; Honda is here to give you some flexibility.


3. Buying a Honda is an excellent way to build credit

Building credit is extremely important and will help you with purchases down the road (dreaming of that house yet?). If you haven’t started building up your credit score yet, no worries, but think about it when buying a new car. It can be a great first step.


4. Honda has flexible and competitive finance and lease packages

Contact your local South Florida Honda Dealer and find out what kind of lease* package is available for you. All you’ll need is:

  • Proof of employment (or firm commitment from employer)
  • Have graduated in past two years or will graduate in next six months
  • Provide Honda dealer with credit and document requirements
  • No adverse credit history
