SCHAUMBURG, Ill., July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Experian Automotive today
announced American Honda Motor Co. has named it as a provider of vehicle
history reports for its Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles and Acura Certified
Pre-Owned Vehicles programs. By incorporating the option to choose AutoCheck®
vehicle history reports, participating Honda and Acura dealerships are better
positioned to help used-car shoppers understand a vehicle's history, compare
it with similar models and select the one that best meets their needs.
As part of the agreement, pre-owned Honda and Acura vehicles now will be
reviewed against the information in the AutoCheck vehicle database to help
uncover any potential issues that may exist before being certified.
Additionally, dealers will have the ability to extend Experian Automotive's
buyback protection program, which safeguards its customers against major
hidden title brands on AutoCheck Assured^™ vehicles.*
"We take great pride in our national certified pre-owned portfolio, and only
those vehicles that meet our premier program standards are awarded Honda and
Acura certified status," said Brian Butts, national manager of auto
remarketing for American Honda Motor Co. "The inclusion of AutoCheck vehicle
history reports further enhances the Honda and Acura certified programs and
gives our customers an additional level of assurance that they're purchasing
the right vehicle."
AutoCheck vehicle history reports will give more than 1,300 participating
Honda and Acura dealerships another option when providing in-depth vehicle
history information to help determine whether a vehicle qualifies to meet the
high standards of the Honda and Acura CPO programs. Additionally, dealers will
have access to the patented AutoCheck Score^®, enabling them to help customers
quickly compare a vehicle with similar models.
"In order for used-car buyers to feel completely satisfied with their
purchase, they need to know that the vehicle they're driving off the lot is
dependable," said Dave Nemtuda, senior vice president of Experian Automotive.
"The detailed information included in AutoCheck vehicle history reports,
combined with our buyback protection program, provides customers with peace of
mind that the vehicle they're purchasing meets their expectations."
