When it comes to upgrading your vehicle, one of the first decisions you’ll make is if you want to purchase new or used.
What many Montana car shoppers fail to recognize is that you aren’t limited to only purchasing new or used. There’s a third option, and it’s a pretty good deal for most Missoula car buyers.
Purchasing certified pre-owned vehicles (CPO) is similar to purchasing used, but has many distinct benefits. We’re giving you the facts about purchasing Honda Certified Pre-Owned cars and SUVs for sale Missoula, and highlighting some of the top CPO financing deals available now at your local Missoula Honda dealer.
The Difference Between Used Cars Missoula and Honda Certified Pre-Owned
While both used cars for sale Missoula and Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles have owner history, purchasing CPO vehicles can give you the extra assurance you need when making this type of substantial purchase. Here's what you get when you purchase Honda Certified Pre-Owned:
1. Truth and Transparency with Vehicle Inspection
When you purchase used, you never fully know what the previous owner did or didn’t do in terms of vehicle maintenance. This increases the chance of something malfunctioning within the first year of purchase.
In order to be classified as “certified pre-owned,” a Honda used car, truck, or SUV must pass a 182-point inspection of every button, pipe, brake, valve, and more by our certified Honda technicians.
If a Honda passes this inspection, you know you’re getting a quality vehicle. This also makes the chances of something malfunctioning within the first year of you taking home your new ride very slim.
2. Less Years, Less Miles
Purchasing used saves you quite a bit of money, but you still want to make sure you’re taking home a quality vehicle.
All Honda CPO vehicles are less than six years old and have less than 80,000 miles.1
While these vehicles aren’t brand new, they often carry newer technology and safety features than older models. When you purchase Honda CPO, you can also enjoy a free three-month trial of Sirius XM radio!2
3. Coverage You Can Count On
If something isn’t right with your used vehicle, you may be covering most if not all of the repair bill. Luckily if something isn’t right with your CPO vehicle, Honda will take care of it.
The Honda CPO Vehicle Limited Warranty provides powertrain coverage for 7 years3 or 100,000 miles1, whichever comes first. Honda will also provide coverage for 1 year3/12,000 miles2 to 4 years3/48,000 miles2 for non-powertrain systems and components.
