Buying a used vehicle is a cost-effective alternative to getting a brand-new car. Not only are used cars less more affordable than their newer equivalents, but they depreciate in value more slowly. However, many people are worried about the risks of buying used, such as the possibility of having a damaged or unreliable vehicle. That’s where Honda’s CPO program comes in. “CPO” stands for “Certified Pre-Owned,” which refers to the process of certifying a pre-owned vehicle for quality.
Honda’s CPO program involves the vehicles in question passing a series of tests. Any used vehicles returned to the dealership must meet two criteria to even qualify for testing: having less than 80,000 miles on the odometer, and being a model year less than six years old. Once a vehicle meets these requirements, it is subjected to a comprehensive, rigorous 182-point inspection that covers everything from the engine’s parts to the condition of the vehicle’s exterior.
When a CPO vehicle meets the mileage and model year requirements and passes the inspection, only then is it given certification and made available for purchase as a certified Honda. Honda also provides its CPO customers with a Vehicle History Report and two warranties.
The warranties included are:
Other benefits CPO vehicles qualify for are Honda Care ® , a 90-day trial of SiriusXM, and eligibility for Honda Financing Services.
CPO vehicles can be an excellent option for buyers who are looking for both the affordability of a previously-owned vehicle and the reliability of a newer car. Honda is confident in its service technicians and their ability to certify quality CPO vehicles for safety, capability, and long-lasting performance.
