Drivers in the market for their next vehicle are often torn between new and used models. Fortunately, there's a third option that combines the best of both new and used models. Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are more affordable than new cars and more reliable than used models. When you buy a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, you aren't just buying any old used car.
One of the largest differences between new and used cars is the warranty they come with. New cars often come with an extensive manufacturer-backed warranty while used cars lack a warranty altogether.
Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come backed by a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. All other components are covered by a one-year/12,000-mile warranty once the new vehicle warranty expires.
In addition to extensive warranties, drivers can rest easy know that there’s no deductible for repairs. The warranties are also transferable between private sellers.
A major reason drivers purchase new vehicles is due to their reliability. Certified Pre-Owned vehicles aren’t brand new, but they’re like new. In order to enter Honda’s Certified Pre-Owned program, vehicles must be under six years old and pass a rigorous inspection.
During the inspection, manufacturer-trained technicians examine everything from the brakes to the body condition and paint job. If the vehicle passes the inspection, it earns the Certified Pre-Owned title.
