Well actually there are big differences. Honda Certified Vehicles need to first be of a certain Model Year and Mileage to begin with. They need to have a clean Carfax History Report and then pass a rigorous 150 Point Honda Inspection. The Vehicle is reconditioned to like new and you get an extremely valuable Warranty added to them. Another benefit is that you get a better Interest Rate and Special Finance options on a Honda Certified. Only a Honda Dealership can offer you a Honda Certified Vehicle.
Honda gives you an extension on your new vehicle Warranty taking it from it’s original 3 Year/36,000 miles to 4 Years/48,000 miles. However if your 3 Years/36,000 mile Warranty has expired, you will still get 1 Year/12,000 mile Comprehensive Coverage from the date of purchase. Next they extend the Powertrain Warranty from 5 Years/60,000 miles to 7 Years/100,000 miles..good at any Honda Dealer.
With a Non-Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle you may get an extended Warranty, but read it carefully because it usually doesn’t entail much and is usually not very long. Typically a Non-Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle does not need to be of a certain age, mileage, and doesn’t require a clean Carfax History Report.
Bonus: Honda Certification increases the value of your vehicle. If you go to any of the three major evaluation guides and look under the details of a Certified, it is the true Honda Manufacturer Certification that is explained and that you get increased value for. So when you trade in your Honda it will absolutely have increased value.
In summation: Honda Certified gives you a cleaner, more valuable, better Warranty coverage, clean Carfax Honda that has undergone an in depth 150 Point Inspection.
