Which CPO Honda model should I get? Recently Autotrader released it’s list of 10-best CPO Cars for 2019, recognizing the best vehicles offered through manufacturer CPO programs. Models considered must be offered with a certified pre-owned warranty lasting for up to 100,000 miles, have an overall NHTSA safety rating of at least four out of five stars, and not be priced above $40,000.
“Our list of ‘good as new’ vehicles can bring the car a consumer wants into the price range they want to pay,” said Brian Moody, executive editor of Autotrader. “These CPO vehicles are thoroughly inspected, covered by warranties and offer the latest designs, making it difficult to even tell the difference between their new car counterparts.”
The 2016-2018 Honda Civic was chosen by Autotrader because, “The Honda Civic is one of the most trusted compact sedans ever to be sold. Offering a quality interior to go with sprightly driving dynamics, over 300,000 new Civics have been sold every year in the U.S. on average dating back to the late 1990s. Needless to say, the Civic is a staple on U.S. roads.
Right now, a brand new 2019 Honda Civic ranges in price from around $20,000 to $28,000, excluding the performance-oriented Si and Type R models. Buyers looking for more value, though, can go the used route and take advantage of Honda’s certified pre-owned program, which offers an additional year of bumper-to-bumper coverage along with 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection, starting from the original sale date. Honda will even add an extra one year or 12,000-mile limited warranty if the basic “bumper to bumper” warranty has expired. The average CPO 2016-2018 Civic is valued at around $19,800, which means you’ll likely be getting a near-new Civic with more desirable features for less than most people are paying for a brand new, base model Civic.”
