Now you can put the 2012 MDX of your dreams in your driveway with a little extra confidence.
Certified used car programs are great. They offer increased peace of mind for consumers when buying a used vehicle, and they're great for dealerships because it means they can charge a little more for an older model than they might otherwise. Everybody wins, right? Well, if you're shopping for a used Hondaor Acura , you are going to be winning a little more, at least when it comes to vehicle choice.
There's a step above HondaTrue, and that's HondaTrue Certified Plus. That bumps your nonpowertrain coverage to 60 months or 86,000 miles, and the powertrain warranty stays the same, ditto the oil change and Sirius XM situation. There's also a step below Certified, and that's HondaTrue Used. This tier includes up-to-10-year-old vehicles and nets you 100 days of warranty coverage or 5,000 miles. Powertrain coverage drops to 100 days and 5,000 miles as well, and you only get one free oil change.
Acura's Precision Certified and Precision Used programs are similar but with expanded coverage windows, befitting Acura's status as Honda's more premium sibling. Certified vehicles get six months or 100,000 total odometer miles for nonpowertrain coverage, with seven years and 100,000 miles for powertrain issues, plus a free oil change. Precision Used (this also applies to vehicles up to 10 years old) gets six months and 7,500 miles of nonpowertrain coverage and 12 months and 12,000 miles of powertrain coverage and no free oil change.
So, knowing all that, are we still stoked for the expansion of Honda and Acura's CPO vehicle programs? Absolutely. We're excited about anything that makes buying a used car easier, less risky and more affordable in a time where buying any vehicle is a real pain.
