Honda Certification

Certification Standards

Every Honda is a product of innovative engineering and quality manufacturing. And only well-maintained Honda models that are less than six years old and have a maximum of 80,000 miles are eligible for certification. The certification process includes:
An exhaustive 150-point mechanical and appearance inspection, performed by the dealer, to ensure that each vehicle meets Honda Certified Used 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
Dealer technicians recondition any component that does not meet our standards
Any component that cannot be reconditioned is replaced with Genuine Honda parts
Up-to-date scheduled maintenance services
Free CARFAX Vehicle History Report

Honda dealers 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 Vehicle History Report will be kept at the Honda dealership and will be available for you to see. Or you can always get a free Vehicle History Report online. Begin your vehicle search here, and then view important details about the vehicle, including your free CARFAX Vehicle History Report.
Honda Certified 150-Point Inspection Process

Every Honda certified used vehicle must pass an extensive 150-point inspection.
Extended Warranty

All Honda Certified Used Cars come with an extended warranty. 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.

The Honda Certified Used Cars Limited Warranty extends the powertrain coverage to 7 years/100,000 miles.

Non-Powertrain Equipment Coverage

The Honda Certified Used Cars Limited Warranty extends the non-powertrain coverage by 1 year/12,000 from 3 years/36,000 miles to 4 years/48,000. If purchased after the new vehicle coverage expires, 1 year/12,000 miles will be covered from the date of purchase.
