What is Honda Certified Pre-Owned?

Honda CPO
When you choose a Certified Pre-Owned Honda from Motor Werks Honda in Barrington you get a late-model, low-mileage vehicle that has the Honda Motor Company’s stamp of approval. To buy a used car that has been certified by one of the most innovative and perennially popular automakers means that you get a number of special benefits backed by exclusive warranty coverage that adds value and peace of mind.

Here at our Chicago area Honda dealership we know that peace of mind means a lot to our customers looking for a well-maintained, dependable pre-owned Honda at an affordable price. Read on to discover more about what the Honda Certified Pre-Owned program is all about.


A pre-owned Honda must be no more than 6 years old and have less than 80,000 miles in order to be eligible for certification.

In order to be certified a pre-owned Honda must undergo a comprehensive multi-point mechanical and appearance inspection conducted by a Honda-trained technician. The inspection check-list includes all of the major vehicle systems such as the engine, drivetrain, exhaust system, steering, brakes, wheels, tires, and suspension, as well as the condition and appearance of the exterior and interior of the vehicle. Any components that do not meet our high compliance standards are reconditioned using only genuine Honda parts.


The Honda Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty provides extended powertrain coverage of 7-years or 100,00 total miles, whichever comes first, from the original new car sale date.

Honda Care® Certified Additional Coverage is an available option, with plans that offer up to 8 years or 120,000 total vehicle miles.
