Honda Renews Parternship with Carfax for Certified Used Car Program
Buying a used car can be intimidating. It can be down right scary. Are you getting a ‘lemon?’ What has this car REALLY been through? Is going to break as soon as you buy it?
Buying a quality pre-owned vehicle through Honda’s Certified Used Car program (available at Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, and Northwest Honda dealerships) can alleviate all your worries! And now, as an important part of the “stringent program guidelines,” Honda announced that it will continue to use Carfax to provide important information for every single one of its used cars…for free.
“For the last seven years, Carfax Reports have been instrumental to the continued success of the Honda Certified Used Cars program,” said Dan Crowe, automobile remarketing manager for American Honda. “The scope and quality of data that Carfax provides for our certification process helps us ensure the integrity of the program as well as the quality of Honda vehicles that become Honda Certified.”
If you have ever been in the market for a used car, plan to be in the market for a quality pre-owned car, bought a used car, had a bad experience with a used car, then you need to know about Honda’s Certified Used Car program. It is no surprise that “Honda Certified Used Cars sales reached an all-time high in 2011, up 12.4% to 228,506 units” because people know that when you get a certified used Honda, you are getting a guarantee that it is a quality pre-owned vehicle and, possibly more importantly, you know what you are ACTUALLY buying, in large part to the partnership with Carfax.
“Pre-owned vehicles that end up being in the Honda Certified Used Car program are first rate,” said Rick Blair, Used Car Manager at Northwest Honda dealership. “We don’t put a car out there that we wouldn’t want to drive home ourselves…or let our kids drive home in. The process that a car has to go through to become certified is really extensive; we hold really high standards, so people know they are getting a really great pre-owned vehicle.”
Vehicles that are part of Honda’s Certified Used Car program are carefully screened and put through a 150-point inspection; every part of the vehicle is meticulously checked and inspected, including:
- Engine, exhaust and drive train
- Steering and suspension
- Tires and wheels
- Body condition/paint
Your quality pre-owned Honda is also backed by one of the best warranties in the industry, including Up to 7 years or 100,000 miles from the date the vehicle was fırst registered under the Honda New Car Limited Warranty!
If you are in the market for a quality pre-owned car, your first and last stops need to be at Certified Used Car departments of Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealerships! You won’t be disappointed!
