I don’t know about you, but purchasing a used vehicle always makes me a bit nervous. . Especially if you are taking out a loan for it. You never really know what could go wrong, or when. That’s why when I do buy a vehicle, I make sure that it’s certified by the dealership to give me a bit of peace of mind.
So here’s what you get when you go ‘certified’ when buying a used vehicle.
Multi-Point Inspection. Exhaustive mechanical and appearance inspection to ensure that each vehicle meets that particular manufacturers standards – for example, with Honda they have a Honda-trained tech scrutinize all major vehicle systems, including the brakes, engine, drive train, steering, suspension, tires, wheels, exhaust system and the vehicles interior and exterior. They recondition any component that doesn’t meet their standards – and any area that can’t be reconditioned is replaced with Genuine Honda parts.
Warranty. With Honda Certified Used Cars they are backed by one of the most extensive warranties in the business. Each vehicle enjoys a minimum of 12 months/12,000 miles non-power train equipment coverage and up to 7 years/ 100,000 miles for powertrain coverage, all with ZERO DEDUCTIBLE!
Free CARFAX. They run a CARFAX Vehicle History Report – at no cost to you – to assure that your Honda Certified Used Car does not contain any DMV reported incidents such as salvage, fire, flood damage, odometer problems, or lemon history. A copy of each car’s CARFAX is kept at the dealership and is available for you.
