6 Benefits of Buying Honda Certified Pre-Owned

When people are in the market for a new car one thing is pretty universal: they want a great deal. People want a great car at a great price, and they want to know they’ve made the right decision. Oftentimes, when caught up in the idea of buying “new,” car shoppers overlook the very real value of buying a used vehicle. So let’s take a moment and review the very real benefits of buying a certified pre-owned Honda. 

1. Certified Pre-Owned Warranty

Many car shoppers avoid the certified pre-owned market because they believe the vehicle won’t last. But when you buy a Honda, you have no reason to worry.

Depending on the model year, your certified pre-owned Honda is either backed by the Honda True Certified Warranty or the Honda True Certified+ warranty. Both warranties include a 7-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. The difference between the two warranties is in the non-powertrain warranty. 

Honda True Certified covers model years 2015–20 (or vehicles more than 12 months or 12,000 miles from their original in-service date) and extends New Vehicle Limited Warranty to 4 years/48,000 miles. If the vehicle was purchased after the New Vehicle Limited Warranty expired, then the True Certified Vehicle Limited Warranty provides 1 year/12,000 mile non-powertrain warranty from the delivery date.

Honda True Certified+ covers model years 2019–20 (or vehicles with less than 12 months or 12,000 miles from their original in-service date) and provides vehicles purchased within the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period with a 5 year/86,000 mile non-powertrain warranty.

2. 182 Point Inspection Report

Another “buying used” concern we hear form car shoppers is they don’t know where the vehicle has been. But when you buy a Honda, this simply isn’t true. Not only do our factory trained and certified technicians perform a 182 multipoint inspection to thoroughly inspect your Honda’s performance, reliability, and appearance, you may also download a report that details their findings. 

So, before you even show up at our California Honda dealership or take a certified pre-owned Honda out for a test drive, you can download the vehicle inspection report — available for all Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles — and see exactly what our technicians saw. 

3. Roadside Assistance

This is one of those perks you hope you never need to use but are always glad to have. If anything goes wrong while out and about in your certified pre-owned Honda, then rest assured you’re covered with 24/7 roadside assistance.

4. Complimentary Oil Changes

All certified pre-owned Honda vehicles include up to two complimentary oil changes within the first year of ownership.

5. SiriusXM Free Trial

Enjoy all the music, podcasts, and talk in the world! As a certified pre-owned Honda owner, you’ll receive a free 90-day trial of SiriusXM radio.

6. Available Honda Care

For added peace of mind, certified pre-owned Honda owners are eligible to purchase Honda Care, which protects your Honda in such critical areas as engine, transmission, suspension, air conditioning/heating and fuel system.
