Honda Certified Pre-Owned: Enjoy A Better Used Car Experience in Columbus, MS

While we love having the opportunity to sell the latest Honda models here at Carl Hogan Honda, we also appreciate that many car shoppers from Starkville to Tupelo aren't in the market for something brand-new. Buying used is a great way to save money on transportation or access higher-tier features at more accessible price points. And when you buy a pre-owned Honda, you know you're getting a quality vehicle with a proven reputation for reliability.

If you're having trouble deciding between a new car's amenities and a used model's attractive value proposition, a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle offers an appealing middle ground. You'll get a dependable later-model, lower-mileage vehicle backed by a factory warranty for an appreciably reduced investment.

Certifiably the Best

To qualify for Honda's certification, a used Honda model must first meet a few prerequisites. It can't be older than six years and must have few than 80K miles on the odometer and spotless vehicle history report. Since most Honda Certified models are recent lease returns, they often fall well under these minimum specifications. It also means they often carry many of the same desirable amenities and tech as newer models but at a lower price. If you have had your eye on a certain feature or trim level but are limited by your budget, stepping back a couple of years with a Honda Certified Pre-Owned model could bring that extra equipment within reach.

If a pre-owned Honda meets the above qualifications, it undergoes a comprehensive 182-point inspection, ensuring it meets Honda's meticulous safety, quality, and performance guidelines. Any issues are fully reconditioned or replaced using only genuine Honda parts. If there's anything that can't be 100% restored to Honda's strict standards, no matter how small, the vehicle cannot be certified. Once a pre-owned Honda earns certification, it's able to offer many benefits not found in typical used cars.

Certified Advantage

Because a Honda Certified Pre-Owned model has proven itself to be among the best in our pre-owned inventory, it carries several perks that normal used models can't offer. Certification automatically extends the vehicle's initial powertrain warranty to 7 years or 100,000 miles and its non-powertrain coverage to 4 years or 48,000 miles. Or, if the New Vehicle Limited Warranty has expired by the time of purchase, it gets another year or 12,000 miles from the date of delivery.

Peace of mind isn't the only thing you get from a Honda Certified Pre-Owned Civic, Accord, CR-V, or Pilot. Certification comes with additional value-adding benefits like:

  • Two complimentary oil changes within the first year of ownership
  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance for 1 year/12,000 miles1
  • Trip Interruption reimbursement for 1 year/12,000 miles
  • Honda Concierge Service for 1 year/12,000 miles
  • No deductible for warrantied repairs when serviced at a Honda dealership
