The Honda Certified 150-Point Inspection

Your Honda dealership considers only well-maintained, late-model Honda vehicles for certification. Honda Certified Used Cars must meet stringent requirements in regards to their condition. CARFAX® Vehicle History Reports and service records are carefully screened, and then each candidate vehicle is put through a comprehensive 150-point inspection. Virtually every part of the vehicle is checked by Honda-trained dealer service technicians. A meticulous appearance inspection scrutinizes fit and finish-inside and out. Several of the key components checked include:

  • Brakes
  • Engine, exhaust and drivetrain
  • Steering and suspension
  • Tires and wheels
  • Body condition/paint

Certified with Certainty

A Vehicle History Report is provided with each Certified Used Car.

Every Honda Certified Used Car comes with a free CARFAX® Vehicle History Report as standard equipment. Since its inception in 1986, CARFAX has built a database of more than 6-billion records that document whether a vehicle is a lemon buyback, has been salvaged, damaged by a flood, used as a taxi or rental car, had its odometer rolled back, as well as other pertinent facts that may affect the vehicle’s safety and value.In addition, CARFAX will buy back any vehicle that turns out to have a severe problem reported by a state Department of Motor Vehicles that is not included on its Vehicle History Report.* It’s a guarantee that makes buying a used car virtually as risk-free as buying a new car.
