Acura Certified Pre-Owned Isn’t Much Different Than New

September 22nd, 2014 by

Brad Chandler, the Sales manager at Crown Acura, has been a part of the Dilawri Group since 2006. When Brad talks about the Acura, smart people listen.

In fact, I couldn’t think of a better person to talk to when it comes to my curiosity about the Acura Certified Pre-Owned program. What makes an Acura Certified Pre-Owned vehicle better than any old everyday used car.

“Most pre-owned vehicles go through a 45-point inspection,” Chandler said with a laugh. “Our vehicles are put through a 125-point Manufacturer-specified inspection.

“It might be a pre-owned vehicle, but it looks and drives like a brand new car. They’ve even got that new car smell. And the warranty – a seven-year/130,000 kilometre Transferable Acura Certified Warranty with the Optional Comprehensive Warranty – is incredible. When you drive it off the lot, you feel you’ve purchased a brand new car.”

Chandler isn’t kidding Consider this list:

  1. You get an exclusive selection of Premium Acura vehicles with a CarProof report.
  2. You get the customer seven-day/1,000 km Exchange Privilege.
  3. You get 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  4. You get Preferred Financing Options through Acura Financial Services
  5. And you get a three-month SiriusXM Select Plan with an option to extend.
  6. On an Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle, any component that falls below Acura standards is replaced with a genuine Acura part or restored to like-new condition.
  7. And remember, only select vehicles qualify for this program. To ensure long-term durability and performance, an Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle must be a Canadian, late-model Acura and be screened for any body or frame repairs.

High performance definitely meets first-class luxury and comfort and as Brad Chandler knows better than anyone, that’s always been the Acura standard and Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are no exception.
