Carfax, Honda Extend Decade-Long CPO Relationship
CENTREVILLE, Va., Aug. 20, 2014
CENTREVILLE, Va., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
has selected Carfax as a provider of vehicle history information for the Honda
and Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle programs. For the last 10 years, Carfax®
Vehicle History Reports™ have been a key component in the Honda and Acura
certification process. Eligible vehicles also must meet Honda and Acura's
stringent program guidelines to be certified.
"We've continued to build two highly successful Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle
programs over the last decade with the help of Carfax," said Brian Butts,
Manager – Auto Remarketing at American Honda Motor Co. "Carfax Reports, along
with Honda and Acura's stringent certification procedures, help to ensure only
the best Honda and Acura vehicles become certified."
In 2013, Honda and Acura dealers sold over 246,000 and 41,000 Certified
Pre-Owned Vehicles respectively. Wherever car buyers shop – including online
at Carfax.com, Certified.Honda.com, Acura.com/CertifiedPreOwned.aspx and other
popular shopping sites – they'll still get free Carfax Reports from dealers
who chose to run them for Certified Honda and Acura vehicles.
"What makes Certified Pre-Owned cars a great value are the program benefits,"
said Steve Waersch, general manager at Pohanka Acura. "Our Certified Honda and
Acura vehicles come with two things our customers want – a Carfax Report and a
thorough inspection. In fact, we make sure our on-the-lot and online shoppers
get a free Carfax Report for every single car in our inventory. It builds
their confidence and makes them more likely to buy."
