Common Questions About
The Car Buying Pricess

What should the tire pressure be on my car?
You'll discover the manufacturer's most suitable or suggested tire pressure for your vehicle on a sticker in the door jamb, or in your owner's manual. Some models even add the stickers on the trunk lid, in the console, or on the fuel door. The recommended pressure is commonly between 30 and 35 PSI.
How Often Should You Replace Your Brake Pads?
Generally, brake pads should be changed after about 50,000 miles. Some brakes should be changed after about 25,000, whilst some brake pads can last for up to 70,000 miles. To get a more precise number for your car's unique needs, consult with your owner's manual.
Is it Cheaper to Insure a New Car or a Used Car?
Unfortunately, used cars are not necessarily cheaper to insure than new cars. For the most part, though, a new car is going to be more expensive to insure, just because it is worth more right now.
Can I Finance a Pre-Owned Vehicle?
While it's possible to finance a used car, it might not be the best option for everyone. But whether you go with a used or new car, financing is up to you. All in all, if you want to purchase a used car, your best bet is to pay in full when you can.
CAN I PURCHASE A CAR ONLINE?
You can purchase a car online, but it’s not usually a good idea to buy a car sight unseen. That's why Greg May Honda in Waco offers free delivery for safe and extended test drives for pre-qualified buyers, as well as a convenient online pre-purchase option to expedite the car-buying process. The purchase and trade-in processes can both be completed entirely online or over the phone.
DO ALL NEW CARS COME WITH A WARRANTY?
All new vehicles at Greg May Honda are sold with a three-year, 36,000-mile Limited Warranty, plus a five-year, 60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. All vehicles purchased from Greg May Honda also come with our exclusive 5 Star Program.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE OIL IN A CAR?
How often you need to change the oil in your car will depend on the type of oil used, the type of vehicle, and its age. Most non-exotic vehicles need their oil changed every 5,000-8,000 miles.
SHOULD YOU TAKE YOUR CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR MAINTENANCE?
Yes, you should take your car to the dealership for maintenance, especially if your warranty still offers service benefits. Maintenance at the dealership also includes OEM (made by the automaker) parts and products.
SHOULD YOU TRADE IN YOUR OLD CAR OR SELL IT YOURSELF?
The decision to trade in your car or sell it on your own terms depends on how long you have to sell the vehicle and the price you hope to get for it. Most people discover that a dealership gives them more buying power through a trade-in than selling it.
WHAT ARE GREG MAY HONDA'S HOURS OF OPERATION?
Greg May Honda in Waco, TX is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 7pm and Saturday from 9am to 6pm.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A USED CAR AND A CPO VEHICLE?
All Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles are used, but not all used cars are CPO. Honda dealerships put every Certified Pre-Owned vehicle through a rigorous 150-point mechanical and appearance inspection before putting them back on the market with a factory-backed stamp of approval and a seven-year, 100,000-mile limited warranty.
IS IT BETTER TO BUY OR LEASE A NEW CAR?
Buying vs leasing a new vehicle depends on the driver and your specific needs. If you want to drive a brand new car every year or two, leasing would be the better option. If you're looking for the best overall value and lower long-term costs, then it's better to buy than to lease your new vehicle.
