Car Financing at Gates Honda

By dmyers | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 at 2:47 PM

Once you’ve picked out your ideal ride, whether it be the Honda CR-V or the Honda Ridgeline, the next step is figuring out how to make it yours. There are a few ways you can go about it: leasing, financing, or purchasing outright. Our dealers are always willing to discuss the basics of financing and how it’s a widely popular buying option.

Financing a new Honda car is simple here at our Honda dealership in Richmond, KY. After you’ve decided to finance, you’ll meet with one of our financial representatives one-on-one. While designing your loan, you’ll need to determine the down payment you’re comfortable with and how long you’d like to finance for. Financing places typically range from 24 months to 84 months. Then, your APR will be calculated, which is your interest rate for the term of your loan—and your credit plays a significant role in this factor.

Over the course of your contract, you’ll be responsible for making monthly payments to the lender you borrowed from. Our dealership is connected to well-established banks and financial institutions in the nearby areas, which help us in finding you a loan that adheres to you and your budget. We are proud of our no-pressure environment, and we won’t make you sign anything that you’re not 100 percent comfortable with.

If you would like more information on financing or what current Honda cars we have for sale, we encourage you to reach out to Gates Honda! We put our customers first here at our new and used car dealership, and we will do whatever it takes to best accommodate your needs. You can contact us at 859-353-6991.

2017 Honda Civic Sedan

Drivers nowadays have a lot of things they are looking for when shopping for a new car. These can be anything from safety, to style, to gas mileage, and, more recently, technology features. It’s 2017, so the technology equipped in today’s models is as advanced as ever. Here is some of our Honda dealers’ favorite technology in models on out lot.


Specifically designed for Honda models, the HondaLink® technology is a do-it-all system for your vehicle. It connects to smartphones for voice-controlled text messaging and phone calls, as well as a wide range of apps you can download for navigation, music, and other content. There is also maintenance reminders that pop up when your Honda car needs an oil change or needs the tires rotated. There are many vehicles equipped with this impressive technology, like the 2017 Honda CR-V as well as the 2017 Honda Fit.

Honda Sensing ™

Driver-assist technologies have become popular tech features in vehicles since debuting just a few years ago. The Honda brand created its own set of technologies that work with Honda models as an extra pair of eyes on the road, so drivers feel safe no matter what. Some of these technologies include Lane Departure Warning and Road Departure Mitigation which senses when the car is veering out of a lane or road. The driver is alerted with sounds, flashes, and even steering wheel vibrations to get them back on track.

There is also Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking System which detects potential threats in front of the vehicle by wave radar sensors. In some cases, the system can even apply the brakes on its own.

To really see how these amazing features work in person, you have to stop by Gates Honda. Our dealers can show you how the different technology works.
