A Smart Choice
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 other benefits that a private seller just can't match, like a thorough multi-point inspection conducted by a team of trained Honda technicians.

Honda Certified Pre-Owned Cars
Every Honda built is a product of innovative engineering and quality manufacturing. And only well-maintained, late-model Hondas are eligible for certification. Our certification process includes an exhaustive 150-point mechanical and appearance inspection to ensure that each vehicle meets the highest possible standards.
Honda-trained mechanics scrutinize all major vehicle systems, including brakes, engine and drivetrain, steering and 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:
- 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.
Every Honda Certified Pre-Owned Car comes with peace of mind because of our limited warranty.
What is Covered?
It covers major engine and transmission components, except for standard maintenance items, body glass and interior. Honda will repair or replace any covered part that is defective in material or workmanship under normal use. There is a $0 deductible, and the following major systems/components are covered:
- Drive System
Covered for 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first) from the original warranty expiration date or, if the original warranty has expired, from the Honda Certified Pre-Owned Cars purchase date.
- Air Conditioning
- Heating and Cooling
- Fuel System
- Audio Repairs (Honda audio systems only)
If the new-car limited warranty has already expired upon delivery, the 12-month/12,000-mile coverage starts on the day you buy or lease the car.
