So Reliable, They're Certifiable!

Honda Civic Si Coupe

When it comes to purchasing a used car or “pre-owned vehicle,” for the inclined, there are two traditional routes a buyer can take. Dealing with a private seller is typically cheaper but requires faith that the owner is being honest about the car’s history. Buying from a used-car dealer often costs more and necessitates trust of a whole different order, namely, that the dealer knows anything about the car’s past. But another avenue has become a popular alternative: purchasing a used car from a manufacturer’s certified program, in this case, Goudy Honda's Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles.

Often called “certified pre-owned” (CPO) vehicles, these cars are sold through new-car dealers’ used sections. Goudy Honda's certified Pre-Owned program comprises of the following:

Multi-point inspection
The certification process includes an exhaustive multi-point mechanical and appearance inspection. Only well-maintained Honda models that are less than six years old and have a maximum of 80,000 miles are eligible for certification.

Limited warranty
Thanks to an extensive used-car warranty, every Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle comes with peace of mind. It covers major engine and transmission components, except for standard maintenance items, body glass and interior.

Free vehicle history report
For added peace of mind, each certified Pre-owned vehicle comes with a free Vehicle History Report.
