Benefits of the HondaTrue Certified & Certified+ Programs

2022 Honda Civic | Avery Greene Honda | Vallejo, CA

There are many reasons to buy a used car from Avery Greene Honda, and one of them is that our Honda dealership in Vallejo participates in the HondaTrue Certified program, which is a good way that families in California can save money.

HondaTrue Certified is Honda’s exclusive certified pre-owned program. While it does bear some similarities to other automakers’ CPO programs, Honda’s system offers some benefits that you probably won’t get from competitors.

For instance, our multi-point inspection assesses 182 items, which is more than average for the industry and shows how carefully we scrutinize our vehicles before approving them. We also offer extra perks with your CPO purchase from Avery Greene Honda, such as roadside assistance for the duration of the limited warranty and up to two free oil changes in the first year of ownership.

Another unique aspect of our CPO program is that we offer two different levels of coverage:

  • HondaTrue Certified vehicles receive 12 months/12,000 miles of non-powertrain warranty coverage. Qualifying vehicles are 5 years or less from their model year (right now, that means 2016-2021 model years).
  • HondaTrue Certified+ vehicles receive 24 months/50,000 miles of non-powertrain warranty coverage. Only vehicles from the most recent 1-2 model years can qualify.

Both certifications contain a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain coverage beyond the non-powertrain coverage, as well as trip interruption assistance and concierge services.

Tips for Trailering or Towing a Boat

lakeHere in Vallejo, where we sit right on the Napa River, summer is the perfect time to haul our boats to the shore and head out for a relaxing day on the water. Hitching your boat safely to your truck isn’t hard, but it’s good to know some tips for towing a boat to keep it safely fastened for the drive.

Number one, make sure the weight in the boat is balanced. You may have to move things around so that the weight in both sides is about the same and the weight in the front and back is about a 60/40 split. You also need to attach—at least to ratchet—straps from the trailer to the bow eye.

When backing out of the driveway, have someone stand behind you to guide you. Steer from the bottom of the wheel, turning the wheel the direction you want the trailer to go.

While driving, give yourself more time to stop than usual, and take wide turns. When going up or down hills, shift down a gear to make braking safer and help you climb it.

Honda Vehicles Included in IIHS’ Best Used Cars for Teens List

Safety has always been a priority for Honda cars and it shows, even in the brand’s used cars. Several model years of Honda pre-owned vehicles were named as part of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s first-ever list of the best used cars for teens, showcasing just how serious the Japanese carmaker is when it comes to safety.

“Enhancing the safety of our customers and the quality of our products is a top priority for Honda,” said Art. St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “Our long-term commitment to enhancing safety and durability makes Honda an ideal choice when shopping for safe, reliable transportation, new or pre-owned, for all drivers including teens.”

Two Hondas named to 2012 Used Car Best Bets

Edmund’s has released its 2012 Used Car Best Bets – and Honda has captured the Compact SUV and Minivan categories. The 2005-2010 Honda CR-V and the Honda Odyssey made over the same years are promising used models.

Edmunds says that, “space-efficient, fuel-efficient and easy to drive and own, the Honda CR-V does almost everything well.” Because the small crossover starts at an affordable price point, it retains its value while still being affordable. Plenty of low-mileage used CR-Vs are on the market.

The Honda Odyssey has retained its value over the years, but its V6 engine (the most powerful in the segment) huge interior, hideaway third-row seat, top safety scores and solid reputation for quality and reliability make it worth the money. The 2005-2010 body styles are attractive, nimble, and convenient.

Looking at a used car can be the right decision for some buyers. And, used cars may be becoming cheaper.The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) reported in April that we could see the price of used cars decrease this summer, and they have recently confirmed that report.  In fact, some models’ value could drop by $900 in only one month.
