Benefits of Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Honda

benefits of being a certified pre-owed vehicleBuying a vehicle is a big decision and there are a lot more choices to make as you go through the process. One thing you might be considering is buying a certified pre-owned vehicle.

At Braman Honda of Palm Beach, we have a huge selection to choose from. But why would you want a certified pre-owned vehicle anyway? Here are just a few of the benefits.

Lower Cost, Higher Benefit

When you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle, you’re often getting a vehicle that is similar to, if not the same as, the newest model. The only difference is that you’re getting it at a lower price because it’s already been owned. What happens when the dealership gets the vehicle back, though, is what really is beneficial for you.

When Braman Honda of Palm Beach gets a vehicle, we go through a whole process to certify it. The vehicle goes through a 182-point mechanical and appearance inspection and must meet Honda certified pre-owned vehicle standards.

Honda-trained technicians will check everything from the brakes to the engine and drivetrain to the tires, exhaust system, and wheels to ensure that everything is in good working order. Any part not in good shape will be reconditioned or replaced with Honda genuine parts.

A Youthful Warranty

When you choose to buy certified pre-owned over regular pre-owned, you’re also guaranteed that the vehicle is rather young because most manufacturers have age requirements for meeting certification standards. This means the vehicle can only be so many years old.

In addition, you’ll get an amazing warranty. Certified pre-owned Honda vehicles come with a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. You can also add on non-powertrain coverage when you buy your certified pre-owned Honda vehicle.

Lower Depreciation When You Sell

The other major benefit to buying a certified pre-owned vehicle is that you don’t end up losing as much when you sell the vehicle later. There’s a saying that a new vehicle loses 20% of its value the minute you drive off the lot. Obviously that’s not true for all vehicles, but the depreciation for a certified pre-owned vehicle is usually much lower because the vehicle would likely be in similar condition when you buy it as when you sell it later.
