Why is Honda's Certified program the best in its class?
Every Honda we build is a product of innovative engineering and quality manufacturing. And only well-maintained late-model Hondas are eligible for certification. Our certification process includes an exhaustive 150-point Mechanical and Appearance Inspection to ensure that each vehicle meets the highest possible standards. Honda-trained mechanics scrutinize all major vehicle systems, including brakes, engine and drivetrain, steering and suspension, tires, wheels, exhaust system and vehicle interior and exterior. We replace any component that does not meet our stringent standards with Genuine Honda Parts, or restore it to "like-new" condition. We take pride in each step of our certification process so you'll be completely satisfied with your Honda.
Continental Honda also performs a history check to make sure that a "lemon" or salvaged vehicle will not be registered as a Honda Certified Used Car. Vehicle History Reports (VHR) perform the following functions as well:
- Ensure correct mileage on the odometer
- Check emissions readings over the life of the car
- Prevent the possibility of purchasing a stolen car
A copy of each car's Vehicle History Report will be kept at the Honda dealership and will be available for you to see. Or you can always get a free vehicle history report online. Then view important details about the vehicle, including your free third-party vehicle history report.
