Honda Certified Pre-Owned Process

If you’ve had your eye on a Honda vehicle with all the bells and whistles, but just can’t swing the price tag of a brand new one, you should consider purchasing a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. Thoroughly inspected, reconditioned, and placed up for sale from your local Honda dealership near Boca Raton, Greenacres, and Palm Beach, these like-new vehicles are an excellent investment.

To help you understand how it works, we’ve outlined the Honda Certified Pre-Owned process for your convenience. Check it out now, then look at our Certified Pre-Owned Honda inventory online.

It Starts with an Inspection

Each Certified Pre-Owned Honda vehicle starts its journey with a 182-point mechanical and appearance inspection by a Honda trained technician at your local Honda dealership. This inspection is to ensure that every certified vehicle meets the Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle standards set by the manufacturer.

This inspection includes a close look at all the vehicle’s major systems, including the brakes, drivetrain, engine, steering, tires, suspension, wheels, and exhaust system. We also look closely at the vehicle’s interior and exterior for any damage to the appearance and quality of materials so when you purchase the vehicle, it truly feels like new.

Then There’s the Reconditioning

If there are any issues with any part of the vehicle, service technicians from your local Honda dealership will recondition the necessary parts. If there are still any components that do not meet the standards, or they can’t be reconditioned, the part will be replaced with Honda Genuine Parts.

After all the work’s been done on the vehicle and it’s certified, it’ll come with a limited warranty that covers transmission and engine components for up to seven years or 100,000 miles. That’s so you can feel confident and not worry about quality.

The Process is Completely Transparent

As a Certified Pre-Owned Honda owner, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits. One of those is the FREE vehicle history report that’s available both online and in the dealership. This is a complimentary service to give you all the information you may want or need for your new-to-you vehicle.

This includes DMV-reported accidents, flood damage, salvage, lemon history, or odometer problems. Since Honda vehicles have to be less than six years old and have less than 80,000 miles in order to be eligible for certification from Honda, you know you’re getting a quality vehicle, because you have the paperwork to prove it.
