Toyota vs. Honda: Certified Pre-Owned Program

Looking to buy a certified pre-owned vehicle? Honda’s award-winning certified pre-owned program offers more benefits than the Toyota CPO program does. Both CPO programs offer 1-year/unlimited-mile CPO warranty and a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. However, the Honda CPO program is more stringent with their CPO requirements, which means you’ll feel more confident that you’re getting a high-quality vehicle when you buy a Honda. While Toyota certified pre-owned vehicles go through a 160-point inspection and must have fewer than 85,000 miles, Honda vehicles go through a 182-point inspection and are required to have less than 80,000 miles.
