Why should you choose a Honda certified pre-owned vehicle?

Honda produces each of its vehicles with pristine quality, incorporating advanced technologies and engineering. This allows for no Honda driver to be left unsatisfied. Choosing to buy second-hand from Honda is no exception. Only well-maintained, late-model Hondas are eligible for certification.

The certification process includes an exhaustive 182-point mechanical and appearance inspection to ensure that each vehicle meets Honda certified pre-owned standards. Our Honda-certified technicians scrutinize all major vehicle systems, including brakes, engine, drivetrain, steering, suspension, tires, wheels, exhaust system, and vehicle interior and exterior. The reconditioning process includes up-to-date scheduled maintenance services.

In addition, if our technicians find that any component does not meet our standards, it will be replaced with Honda parts.

When looking at a certified pre-owned vehicle make sure that it has already had the 182-point certified mechanical inspection. Avoid dealers that offer to "certify" the vehicle you are looking at for an additional fee. If it isn't already certified on the lot, it has not gone through the full Honda certification process.

Honda offers excellent warranty protection for their certified pre-owned vehicles: HondaTrue and HondaTrue+. Both HondaTrue+ and HondaTrue include a powertrain warranty of 7 years/100,000 miles. Any non-powertrain vehicle that is purchased within the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period will receive an extended warranty of 4 year/48,000 miles for HondaTrue and 5 years/86,000 for HondaTrue+. If purchased after the New Vehicle Warranty period has expired, HondaTrue offers an additional 1 year/12,000 miles from delivery date. To add to this, by choosing to use either warranty, you will receive Roadside Assistance, 2 complimentary oil changes for the year or 12,000 miles of ownership, and a 90 day free trial for the XM Sirius radio (if your car has a satellite radio).

We want you to get the best buy for your money. If you buy a certified second-hand Honda, that will definitely be the case.
