Why Buy a Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

Certified pre-owned Honda dealership in Hemet

When it comes to pre-owned items, many people experience intimidation or hesitation in going through with the purchase. For instance, when you buy a used video game or movie, you do so knowing that it has some scratches, but hoping that it will still work just as well. Being that a car is a much more complex and costly investment, used car shoppers are right to have some healthy hesitancy.

However, when you’re shopping for your used sedan, SUV, truck or other vehicle here at Diamond Valley Honda in Hemet, CA, you can do so with ease. Our inventory of Certified Pre-Owned vehicles have gone through thorough inspections and are also held to certain standards before they can be labeled as Certified. Below, we’ve outlined what it means to purchase a vehicle that has gone through this certification process and what this means for you.

Certification Means High Standards

Regardless of the Honda vehicle, every single one is a result of precise engineering, meticulous design and overall passion for a high-performing, quality product. As such, only Honda models that are well-maintained, less than six years old and have a maximum of 80,000 miles are eligible for certification. The certification process includes the following:

  • A Multi-Point inspection of the mechanical workings and appearance of the vehicle. This is carried out by the dealer with the objective to ensure that it meets Honda Certified Pre-Owned standards.
  • Thorough analysis of all major vehicle systems by Honda-trained technicians. These include the engine, suspension, drivetrain, steering, brakes, tires, wheels and exhaust system as well as the interior and exterior of the vehicle.
  • Reconditioning of any vehicle component that does not meet Diamond Valley Honda standards.
  • Replacement of any component that cannot be rehabilitated with a Genuine Honda part.
  • Comes with a Limited Warranty that provides coverage for the transmission and engine for up to 7 years/100,000 miles[1].

Important Recall Information: Some of our pre-owned vehicles may be subject to non-repaired safety recalls. Check for a vehicle's non-repaired recalls at safercar.gov.
