Get Your Money’s Worth on a Used Car: Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Honda

February 1st, 2013 by

Buying a CPO Honda from MiddletownAs many older drivers can tell you (and some younger ones, too), your first car purchase is a big deal. It’s easy to get stuck on a particular model, color, or feature list and jump into buying your “dream car” without giving it a second thought. The Honda Certified Pre-Owned program is a great way to own a top-quality used vehicle with many of the benefits that come along with buying a new car.

Experienced car owners will often tell you the factor that most new drivers overlook is resale value. A used luxury car might seem like a great idea at the time—especially if you need some help getting dates—however the cost of maintaining such a vehicle over time can be steep and even properly maintained high-end vehicles don’t often hold their value against new models that are coming out every year.

Honda has consistently been recognized by Kelley Blue Book and other vehicle evaluation companies as having excellent resale value, so you can trust that certified used Honda vehicles will hold on to their value. And when you consider that each Honda certified used vehicle has to undergo a rigorous 150-point inspection, reconditioning, and any necessary repairs/replacements with genuine Honda parts, it’s obvious that you will get a vehicle that’s in great condition.

Honda is so confident in the quality of their used vehicles that they extend their warranties, offer roadside assistance, and other benefits. They extend the powertrain warranty up to seven years/100,000 miles from the vehicle’s original in-service date. They also extend the non-powertrain warranty to four years/48,000 miles or renew coverage for one year/12,000 miles if it is no longer covered by the original warranty.

Ask your dealer about the Honda Care program, which includes roadside assistance, concierge emergency service, rental car reimbursement, trip interruption reimbursement, and more. Honda Care is transferable between private parties and can last as long as eight years/120,000 miles from the original in-service date.
