As your leading South Florida new and used car Honda dealer in Davie, Florida, we at Rick Case Honda Davie pride ourselves on selling some of the best new cars on the road today. The same applies to our Honda Certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles. Honda Certified is your assurance that you are purchasing a pre-owned Honda that meets or exceeds Honda’s stringent quality process. A Honda Certified vehicle not only is a great value, but it’s also a reliable car that you can drive knowing that it is a “like new” vehicle that will last you many miles down the road.
The Standard Of Excellence
When considering whether a used Honda is a worthy candidate to become a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, Honda takes many things into consideration. Quite simply, only the very best vehicles are even considered. A prerequisite for every candidate is that the car must have fewer than 80,000 miles on it and be less than 6 years old. Once this initial hurdle is passed, the vehicle candidate then moves onto the next step in the process.
A “Fine-Tooth Comb” Philosophy
Next comes the hard part. Factory trained Honda technicians put the candidate under the microscope. Like an ace detective searching for clues, technicians perform an exhaustive 182-point inspection of the vehicle. No detail too small is overlooked. On the outside, technicians pay careful attention to even the most minor cosmetic flaws. Paint chips, body panel fit, headlights and taillights, exterior trim pieces, and any other issues are addressed and fixed to Honda’s exacting standards.
This meticulous attention to detail carries over to the candidate’s interior. Here, trained Honda inspectors look for the slightest imperfections. All seating areas must be in excellent condition. The dash and headliner are checked for any tears or cracks. All switchgear and interior functions are checked and double-checked. This includes the touchscreen “infotainment” system, climate control, power windows and door locks, power seats, instrument cluster, steering wheel-mounted controls, power moonroof, visors, rearview mirror, and many additional features.
Now the technicians move on to the engine, powertrain, suspension, and other major mechanical components. From brakes and coolant levels to the electrical system, engine, transmission, tires, exhaust, and computer module, nothing is overlooked. The slightest imperfections are noted and corrected. If the technicians feel that certain aspects of the vehicle do not pass muster, then it gets a failing grade and is no longer a candidate. Otherwise, the vehicle moves on to the final step, which is an extensive road test to uncover any addition flaws or driving issues.
Once all of these steps are completed, and the technicians sign off on the inspection, the candidate can take its place as a Honda Certified vehicle. As we mentioned before, only the “best of the best” achieve this prestigious designation.
The Benefits Of Buying Certified
Because Honda stands behind each Certified Pre-Owned Honda it sells, not only can you buy with confidence, but you can also enjoy many additional benefits. For example, each Certified Pre-Owned Honda comes with a 7-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty. But here at Rick Case Honda Davie, we take this coverage even further by extending it to 10 years or 100,000 miles. Additional benefits of a Honda CPO vehicle include a free vehicle history report and a complimentary three-month subscription to SiriusXM® Radio.
You also get the option of purchasing additional limited powertrain warranty coverage that extends to up to 8 years or 120,000 odometer miles, whichever comes first. This extended coverage comes with additional benefits, including trip interruption, rental car reimbursement, and roadside assistance.
