If you live in or around Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Falmouth, Gorham, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland Center, Yarmouth, Windham, Freeport, or Cumberland Foreside and are in the market for a used Honda vehicle, you’re in luck because used Honda’s are reliable, great-looking, high-quality cars and SUV’s that people love. And there are a lot of used Honda vehicles available in the New England area.

If you’re looking for a great used Honda under $12,000, you’ve come to the right place—let’s take a look at some of the most popular and reliable used Honda vehicles that fit nicely within most budgets. We’d like to recommend, first, a used Honda Fit—a reliable, fuel-efficient, sub-compact car that drivers have given rave reviews; critics also love this vehicle as it has made several top ten lists of reliable Honda cars since its introduction.

Introduced to the U.S. market in 2007, the Honda Fit has won over drivers with its smooth ride, good fuel economy and space-efficient design. The Fit’s unique rear seat can be configured four ways, including one in which the seat bottom flips up against the backrest, allowing tall items to be carried within the cabin. When you fold the seat down flat, you get a lot cargo space—up to 57 cubic feet in the 2009 model.

The second-generation Honda Fit (2009) features a telescoping steering wheel, more passenger and cargo space, a bit more power (117 horsepower vs. 109) and an available navigation system. We highly recommend a used Honda Fit for people looking for a reliable, roomy and fuel-efficient sub-compact car.

The Honda Accord Coupe is another affordable used car under $12,000. With a used Honda Accord, you get a high quality, smooth ride, refined powertrains and Honda’s long-standing reputation for reliability.

A used Honda CR-V is another great choice for vehicles under $12,000. It’s space-efficient, fuel-efficient and fun to drive. With as much passenger and cargo space as some midsize SUVs, the compact Honda CR-V crossover meets most drivers’ needs for both comfort and space. Its four-cylinder engine provides sufficient power in normal driving and delivers good fuel economy. A smooth ride, an excellent reliability record and strong crash-test scores make the Honda CR-V a top pick amongst drivers and critics.

The 2007 model delivered improved handling, a more user-friendly lift gate (which replaced the previous side-opening door) and the availability of a factory navigation system. There were a few updates for 2010, the main one being more horsepower and available Bluetooth® connectivity.

If you’re looking for a high quality used Honda Fit or some other Honda model in Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Falmouth, Gorham, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland Center, Yarmouth, Windham, Freeport, Cumberland Foreside, or a surrounding area, you’ll find a number of great-looking used Honda vehicles under $12,000 right here in the New England area.
