Honda Certified Vehicles At Wilde East Towne Honda

Buying a Honda Certified Pre-Owned car is a smart choice. Only well-maintained Honda vehicles that are under six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles are eligible for certification.

The program includes many benefits that a private used car seller just can’t match, like a thorough 182-point inspection conducted by a team of trained Honda technicians.

Honda Best in Class Certification

The Honda Certified Pre-Owned Car certification process includes:

  • Up-to-date scheduled maintenance services
  • An exhaustive 182-point mechanical and appearance inspection, performed by the dealer, to ensure that each vehicle meets Honda Certified Pre-Owned Cars standards
  • Honda-trained technicians scrutinize all major vehicle systems, including brakes, engine, drivetrain, steering, suspension, tires, wheels, exhaust system and vehicle interior and exterior
  • We replace any component that does not meet our stringent standards with Genuine Honda parts, or restore it to “like-new” condition.

We take pride in each step of our certification process so you’ll be completely satisfied with your Honda.

We also perform a history check to make sure that a “lemon” or salvaged vehicle will not be registered as a Honda Certified Pre-Owned Car. Vehicle History Reports (VHR) perform the following functions as well:

  • Ensure correct mileage on the odometer
  • Check emissions readings over the life of the car
  • Prevent the possibility of purchasing a stolen car

A copy of each car’s Vehicle History Report will be kept at the Honda dealership and will be available for you to see.

IntelliChoice®, a leading provider of automotive information to consumers, has named Honda’s Certified Pre-Owned Cars Program “Best in Class” four years in a row.

“Honda has consistently stayed a step or two ahead of the competition by continuing to strengthen its program,” said IntelliChoice® president John Hammond in announcing its survey results. “Their actions speak volumes: Honda is committed to certified pre-owned cars and to the customers they serve. “IntelliChoice® worked with a team of ASE-certified instructors and technicians-automotive experts who make their living maintaining and repairing cars-to develop a standardized list of 141 items that should be inspected when certifying a pre-owned car. Manufacturer programs were then rated based on how well their inspection lists compared with the standard, as well as other factors. Among non-luxury nameplates, Honda came the closest to meeting-if not in some areas exceeding-the IntelliChoice® standard.

Only Honda models that are six-years old or newer with fewer than 80,000 miles can participate in Honda’s stringent certification exam. Ultimately, each vehicle must pass a comprehensive, 182-point mechanical and appearance inspection to be considered a Honda Certified Pre-Owned Car.
