Acura has announced an expansion of its Certified Pre-owned (CPO) vehicle lineup intended to increase opportunities for young, first-time buyers to purchase premium vehicles. “Higher new vehicle prices make Acura Precision Used and Acura Precision Certified vehicles an even more critical gateway to luxury vehicle ownership for younger customers," said Dan Rodriguez, Manager of Auto Remarketing at American Honda. “We are building on the success of the award-winning Acura CPO program as well as the incredible client service and product knowledge of our Acura dealers.”
Acura’s CPO vehicles come with the peace of mind of an Acura-backed Limited Warranty. Now called Acura Precision Used, Acura is establishing a new industry trend by becoming the first luxury automaker to offer certified used vehicles up to 10 years old.
Acura says that each Precision Used vehicle receives a thorough background and quality check including addressing any maintenance needs. This makes Acura dealers an ideal place to purchase a reliable and high-quality used Acura car or SUV. Acura’s program includes a downloadable checklist detailing the comprehensive 112-point inspection performed by a certified Acura technician.
Benefits of the Acura Precision Used vehicles include;
- 6-month/7,500 mile limited warranty
- Complimentary oil change
- Up-to-12-months or 12,000 miles of emergency roadside assistance, trip-interruption expense reimbursement and
- A complimentary three-month trial of SiriusXM
- 7-day/300 miles exchange policy.
