Buying a used vehicle is exciting because it usually means replacing an old car with a newer one. When you go with a Honda product, you go for the peace of mind that comes with the brand's reputation for quality and reliability. However, it's important to know certain details about what we offer you in order to make an even safer and more informed choice. Here are five things to know.
1 - The Honda Certified Program Advantage
Honda offers several used vehicles, some of which benefit from special certification. For peace of mind, it is recommended that you opt for the latter, as they offer a higher level of protection than any other. In order to obtain this famous certification, they have first undergone a 100-point aesthetic and mechanical inspection and anything that did not meet the program's quality standards was repaired.
2 - Maintenance history
When we acquire a used model through a private transaction, it is not always possible to get the maintenance history of the vehicle we are interested in. And you must rely on the goodwill of a stranger. By opting for a Honda certified vehicle, you get the maintenance history of the vehicle and it is also delivered to you with an up-to-date maintenance schedule. It's literally a new vehicle that is literally a few years old that is offered to you.
3 - Warranties
When you buy a vehicle from an individual, the only guarantee you have is that you will benefit from the coverage offered by the manufacturer. In the case of Honda products, it is 5 years and 100,000 kilometres. For added protection, the company's certified program adds 2 years and 60,000 additional kilometres of protection, so you'll have peace of mind for many years to come. In total, from the date of initial vehicle purchase, total protection extends for 7 years and 160,000 kilometres.
4- Interest rates
Interest rates fluctuate with the market and tend to change from month to month under offers. Before buying a used vehicle, do your research and compare what's offered elsewhere so that you have all the negotiating tools you need to get the best price.
5 - The CarProof Report
One of the risks inherent in buying a used vehicle is getting your hands on a product that has already been in an accident and could cause you long-term problems. Fortunately, there's a way to find out the vehicle's history in this regard through a detailed CarProof report. With the purchase of a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, this report is provided to you, so you don't have to do the research yourself. This is another benefit of Honda's Certified program.
