A fast car is a great car. They’re all about power, passion, and the freedom to hit the road at any time. Yeah, our collective love affair with fast cars is well known.

Want proof? So far, the Fast And The Furious movie franchise has brought in a whopping $3.9 billion at the worldwide box office, with the ninth installment of the series slated to premiere in 2020. And we love each heart-pumping, testosterone-fueled car chase.

However, our fascination with fast cars gets a reality check when it comes to our teens. Parents groan thinking about their high-schooler taking a road trip or even driving to the grocery store. But rest easy, for your friendly South Florida Honda Dealers have the answer: A certified used Honda.

2015 Honda Civic

Certified Pre-Owned 2015 Honda Civic 

Did you know that the same Honda Civic appeared in two Quentin Tarantino movies: Jackie Brown and Kill Bill Vol. 2? Interestingly, Tarantino once owned a white Civic. (Who says famous Hollywood directors don’t drive Honda?) 

Safety Score: The 2015 Civic earned a 5-star overall crash-safety rating from the NHTSA and the coveted Top Safety Pick+ distinction from IIHS. Meanwhile, U.S. News & World Report gives the sporty 2015 Civic a score of 9.3 out of 10 for safety. That’s one safe ride with a maximized “wow” factor.

Reliability Score: Again, the 2015 Civic wins. U.S. News & World Report gives it 4-1/2 out of 5 stars for reliability.

Resale Value: Moms and dads, this one’s for you. The Civic’s high reliability and safety scores give it one of the highest resale values in the segment. 

Awards Won: This phenomenal Civic won Kelly Blue Book’s Best Buy award in 2015. Enough said.

2014 Honda Accord

Certified Pre-Owned 2014 Honda Accord 

Now, the Accord is an oldie but a goodie. In the 1982 Fast Times At Ridgemont Higha Honda Accord held its own against two formidable foes in the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 and Buick LeSabre. Let’s face it: we love it when the underdog keeps up with the big boys.

Want our take on it? Try the 2014 Honda Accord Sport, the second-best-selling car of its year. With a backup camera, Pandora and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as Brake Assist, you and your teen will finally agree on something.

Safety Score: The 2014 Accord earned an overall 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA as well as the prestigious Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS. U.S. News & World Report gives the 2014 Accord 9.6 out of 10 for safety. It also ranks #5 in the 2014 Affordable Midsize Car category.

Reliability Score: The U.S. News & World Report gives the 2014 Accord 3-1/2 out of 5 stars for reliability.

Resale Value: The Accord’s better-than-average reliability and safety scores mean it also has a great resale value, especially for midsize or full-size sedans.

Awards Won: The 2014 Accord made Kelley Blue Book’s list of 12 Best Family Cars in 2014. It was touted for its good fuel economy and state-of-the-art LaneWatch safety feature. If you’re buying a car for a teen, you’re going to love the LaneWatch feature. When your teen signals to make a lane change, he/she will see the vehicle’s blind spots on a 7.0-inch screen. Now that’s a safety feature worth its weight in gold. 

2014 Honda CR-V

Certified Pre-Owned 2014 Honda CR-V

If you’re looking for a safe, reliable SUV for your teen, a used CR-V is the ideal choice. As always, the Honda CR-V just makes sense, no matter your age or driving ability, thanks to its award-winning addition of several Honda safety features.

Safety Scores: The 2014 Honda CR-V earned an overall 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA. U.S. News & World Report gives the CR-V a safety score of 9.2 out of 10.

Resale Value: The CR-V’s fantastic reliability and safety scores give it a good resale value. The CR-V also ranks #2 as the most affordable compact SUV for 2014.

Awards Won: Kelley Blue Book named the 2014 Honda CR-V one of the 10 Best SUVs for the year.
