Honda CPO Program vs. Ford CPO Program

CPO Honda driving in suburbs
Most drivers in the Chicago area know that Honda vehicles are reliable, and that they’re often recommended over less-dependable competitors. Still, unless you’ve done your research, you may not realize where the Honda CPO program offers real advantages over competing programs from their rivals. In fact, in many ways, the Ford CPO program is similar to that offered by Honda. Both manufacturers incentivize drivers to choose their used vehicles by offering extensive vehicle inspections, warranty coverage, as well as additional benefits worth exploring. However, only the Honda CPO Program offers drivers more of what they want.

Vehicle Inspection

In order to be eligible for the Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program, a vehicle must be fewer than six years old, with less than 80,000 miles. A CPO Honda must also be fewer than six years old at the time of its recertification, and also reflects the 80,000 miles limit. Qualifying vehicles are then given thorough inspections. A CPO Ford has to make it through a 172-point inspection, while a CPO Honda must pass an even more comprehensive 182-point inspection.

Warranty Coverage

Both Honda and Ford guarantee the reliability of their certified pre-owned models using comparable powertrain and non-powertrain warranties. Compare the coverage offered by each:

Ford CPO Program

  • 7-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty starting at the time of your purchase
  • 1-Year/12,000-Mile non-Powertrain Warranty Coverage starting at the time of your purchase

Honda CPO Program

  • 7-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty starting at the time of your purchase
  • If your vehicle is still under its initial New Car Limited Warranty at the time of your purchase: up to 4-years/48,000-Miles of non-Powertrain Warranty Coverage.
  • If your vehicle is no longer covered by its initial warranty at the time of your purchase: 1-Year/12,000-Mile non-Powertrain Warranty Coverage

Additional Benefits and Coverage

When you drive a CPO Ford or a CPO Honda, you can be protected by more than your vehicle’s warranty. Drivers who choose a CPO Ford will receive a complimentary CarFax report and complimentary 24-Hour Roadside Assistance free of charge. Although appropriately equipped CPO Hondas receive three free months of Sirius XM Radio, Honda’s CPO program restricts most of its additional benefits to the optional HondaCare program. Although HondaCare isn’t complimentary, its extensive protections make it well worth the additional cost for drivers in the Arlington Heights and Gurnee areas. HondaCare includes:

  • 24-Hour Roadside Assistance
  • Extended Protection for your Drivetrain, Electronics, Chassis, Climate Control Systems, and Accessories
  • Concierge Emergency Services
