Why Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Honda

September 28th, 2021 by

Hondas are known to be some of the most reliable cars on the road: they consistently rank at the top of multiple reliability lists, and if you’re just driving around, you’re bound to see a good number of older Hondas, since they just last longer than the competition. If you want a car with that Honda reliability while saving money over buying a brand new car, you might want to consider buying a used Honda car, truck, or SUV.

Of course, the common wisdom surrounding used cars is that you get what you pay for. To alleviate that worry, Honda offers multiple Certified Pre-Owned certification programs for its vehicles. Here, we’ll break down each of those and show you the benefits of each.

Honda Pre-Owned Certified+

Certified+ Honda Vehicles

Pre-Owned Honda Vehicles that have been in service for fewer than 12 months or 12,000 miles, and with 80,000 miles or fewer at the time of vehicle delivery, are eligible for Certified+ designation. Certified+ Hondas have powertrain coverage for 7 years or 100,000 miles. If you’ve purchased the Honda within the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period, you’ll also get non-powertrain coverage for 5 years past the in-service date or up to 86,000 miles on the odometer.

Certified Pre-Owned Honda Vehicles

Hondas that are older than 12 months, but still with 80,000 miles or fewer on them, are eligible for the Certified Pre-Owned Honda vehicle program. It comes with the same 7-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty as a Certified+ vehicle. For non-powertrain coverage:

  • If the vehicle was purchased within the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period, that period is extended to 4 years/48,000 miles.
  • Otherwise, the vehicle receives coverage from the Honda Certified Vehicle Non-Powertrain Coverage for 1 year/12,000 miles from its delivery date.

Extra Perks

Both Certified Pre-Owned programs come with a number of other perks, including the following:

  • Roadside Assistance, for the duration of the Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty
  • Up to two complimentary oil changes in your first year of owning the car (under 12,000 miles)
  • Eligible for Honda Care®, an extended care coverage option for the ultimate peace of mind
  • During the Non-Powertrain Coverage Period, eligible for Trip Interruption and Roadside Assistance coverage.
  • Concierge Service, available during the Non-Powertrain Coverage Period.
  • Free SiriusXM Radio for the first 90 days after your purchase.
