The Honda CPO Inspection Checklist

Honda CPO

The Honda Certified Pre-Owned Program is chock-full of benefits, such as:

  • Vehicles less than six years old
  • Vehicles with fewer than 80,000 miles
  • CARFAX Vehicle History Report
  • CPO financing through Honda Financial Services
  • 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty
  • 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty

But, the advantages don’t end there. Kamuela and Waoimea are sure to appreciate the peace of mind that comes from a 182-point inspection. The Honda CPO inspection checklist covers every inch of a vehicle, from the exterior and cabin, to the engine compartment and undercarriage.

A Few Examples

Honda’s CPO inspection checklist is one of the most rigorous in the industry. Here’s just a quick look at some of the checks a certified technician performs on CPO candidates:

  • Front Interior: This is the lengthiest inspection list, and checks the functionality of everything from instrument cluster gauges and HVAC system, to Bluetooth and HondaLink, to the parking brake and steering wheel.
  • Rear Interior: Moving to the back, technicians assess the condition of the carpeting, dual-action tailgate (Ridgeline), HondaVAC (Odyssey), seats and headrests, and cargo compartment.
  • Front Exterior: During a front exterior inspection, the headlights, bumper and fenders, grille, hood, Honda emblem, and more are checked for signs of damage.
  • Rear Exterior: The rear exterior inspection is similar to the front, but involves the taillights, rear bumper and fenders, license plate, and exhaust system.
  • Under Vehicle/Hood: To ensure every Honda CPO is safe, technicians inspect the suspension and brake calipers under the vehicle, then move under the hood for a look at the engine, transmission, battery, and other essential components.
  • Road Test: Every CPO inspection ends with a road test, which checks for any idle vibration, strange noises, abnormal drift, and other behaviors that could indicate a problem.

And that’s only a portion of the checklist!
