Honda Has One of the Best Certified Pre-Owned Programs

July 13th, 2021 by

If you’re shopping for used cars near Denver, Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles offer several significant benefits compared to your average used vehicle. CPO vehicles are thoroughly inspected, reconditioned, come with extended warranties, free vehicle history reports, and, in some cases, 24-hour roadside assistance and other perks.

However, not all manufacturers’ Certified Pre-Owned programs are created equal. So, how do you know which CPO program is the better value? According to several independent studies, the Honda Certified Pre-Owned and Certified Pre-Owned + Programs available through Kuni Honda rank at or near the top of all car manufacturers’ CPO programs.

Lower CPO Premium Cost

Recently, iSeeCars.com conducted a research study on the top 10 cars with the lowest CPO premiums. In other words, how much more will a CPO car cost compare to a non-CPO used car? Four Honda models, including the Honda CR-V, the Honda Odyssey, the Honda Accord, and the Honda Civic, made the list as offering some of the lowest CPO premiums, ranging from $291 to $420 more than a used car. This is considerably lower than the average CPO premium of $813.

The Other Honda CPO Advantages

To become a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, each candidate must pass a rigorous 182-point inspection process. On the other hand, Toyota only puts their CPO cars through a less-thorough 160-point inspection. Additionally, Honda CPO vehicles can only have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer while Toyota allows up to 85,000 miles on their CPO cars.

With a Honda CPO vehicle, you’ll pay a $0 deductible for warranty service. That means no out-of-pocket costs for repairs covered under your Honda CPO warranty. But that’s not the case with Ford Blue or Ford Gold Certified vehicles, where you’ll be charged a $100 deductible for their CPO warranty service.

Honda’s CPO advantage widens when you compare it to the CPO program offered by Chrysler and FIAT. Their CPO warranty coverage falls far short of the mark by only offering an additional 3 months of coverage after the new car warranty expires or from the certified purchase date. With Honda, you’ll get a full 12 months of additional warranty coverage.

In addition, these Fiat/Chrysler (FCA) CPO programs only provide for a 125-point vehicle inspection, compared to Honda’s more thorough 182-point inspection. And, like Ford, you’ll pay a similar $100 deductible for warranty service on these vehicles.

Comparing Honda’s CPO program to Nissan’s CPO program, you’ll find that Nissan only offers a 167-point inspection on their CPO vehicles. And, as we’ve seen with some other CPO programs, you’ll be charged a $100 deductible per service visit on Nissan’s CPO plan. Remember, Honda charges $0 out-of-pocket costs for its CPO warranty.
