What is the Acura Precision Certified Vehicle Program?


Acura Precision Certified makes getting into Honda’s luxury division more affordable for car shoppers who might have never imagined a premium-badged vehicle was within their budget. Open to vehicles up to five model years old and with fewer than 80,000 miles, this certified pre-owned (CPO) program can be an intelligent first step into luxury car driving.

One caveat to any used car shoppers with a need for serious speed, the only Acura vehicle not eligible for this program is the NSX sports car.

Added Warranty Coverage

When you buy an Acura Precision Certified vehicle, the engine, transmission, and related powertrain components are covered for seven years or 100,000 miles, measured from the vehicle’s original in-service date. The coverage extends to the rest of the vehicle for at least two years from purchase or 100,000 total miles. If the vehicle is purchased as certified with some of its 4-year/50,000-mile new-car warranty remaining, those two years begin when that warranty expires.

Vehicle Inspection and History

One hundred eighty-two inspection points must be checked and noted on every Acura Precision Certified vehicle. An Acura-certified technician must perform the inspection. Once complete, the results are downloadable and available for view by a car shopper.

All Precision Certified vehicles come with a verified Carfax or Autocheck report. These reports help avoid worries about hidden damage or unreported accidents, issues that can make even the sharpest-looking used car turn into a costly disappointment down the road.

Complimentary Maintenance

Free is good! An Acura Precision Certified customer has exactly one year or 12,000 miles to redeem a free first maintenance appointment.

Roadside Assistance and Trip Interruption Reimbursement

No one likes to be stuck with a broken car. Fear not; Acura Precision Certified vehicles also come with at least two years or 100,000 miles of roadside assistance, including help with a dead battery, a flat tire, an emergency tow, or fuel delivery if you run your Acura dry of gasoline.

If a mechanical breakdown occurs 100 miles away from home, Acura’s Trip Interruption Reimbursement will come to the fiscal rescue, covering a rental car, food, and lodging for up to three consecutive days, at a maximum of $300 per day.

Concierge Service

Acura Precision Certified comes with at least two years or 100,000 miles of its Concierge Service. The concierge can arrange emergency vehicle glass replacement, help with emergency airline ticket needs, or assist in replacing lost or forgotten items while traveling, such as prescription eyeglasses or medicine.

Exchange Policy

Buy the car, take it home, and think things over for a week. A buyer has the right to exchange an Acura Precision Certified vehicle within a 7-day timeframe for another Acura CPO model. The fine print states the car should not have covered more than 300 miles and be in the same condition as it rolled away from the dealership.

More Acura Certified Options

In addition to Acura Precision Certified, the luxury automaker also offers the Acura Precision Used program. Featuring older, higher-mileage vehicles, it’s a smart way to step up to luxury for even less.
