What is Honda Certified
Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles
Before a Honda goes through the certified process it must meet the initial requirements of being 6 years old or newer and the engine must have less then 80,000 miles on it. If the Honda meets those two requirements then it still needs to go through a 182 point checklist to become a Honda Pre-Owned Certified vehicle.

Passing the 182 point inspection and becoming a Certified Pre-Owned Honda comes with many benefits. The first benefit is receiving full transparency. Before purchasing the vehicle, the customer will be able to download the vehicle inspection report giving them valuable insight into the vehicles history. Most importantly, every Certified Honda comes with a 7 year/ 100,000 mile power-train warranty, which is measured from the original in service date. Every certified Honda also comes with a non power-train warranty as well which varies depending on the year and miles of the vehicle. see below for the coverages.
