Buying a used vehicle can be much more affordable for some drivers, but that process comes with a higher risk. Mechanical problems could be devastating and result in thousands of dollars in required repairs to make the vehicle drivable. Fortunately, drivers can spend just a little extra cash to get a vehicle that’s practically guaranteed to not have any major problems. Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are both vetted and backed by the manufacturer, resulting in a level of confidence that used vehicles simply can’t match.
In order to become a Certified Pre-Owned Honda, vehicles must meet a few stringent requirements. First, it must have a clean title and be no older than six model years. Second, it can’t have more than 80,000 miles on the engine. Finally, the vehicle in consideration must pass a rigorous 182-point cosmetic and mechanical inspection performed by a factory certified technician.
Vehicles that make the cut into Honda’s Certified Pre-Owned program come with a list of benefits that make used cars look rather dull.
Drivers will also receive roadside assistance and trip interruption protection in the event something goes wrong away from home. Finally, all Certified Pre-Owned Honda vehicles come with a detailed CARFAX Vehicle History Report and three months of XM Satellite Radio.
