Certified Pre-Owned Cars in Bluffton, SC

South Carolina used car shoppers are a savvy bunch. When you’re shopping for a car, you know that while there’s plenty of perfectly ordinary pre-owned cars for sale in the region, you don’t want just an average set of wheels — you want a vehicle that delivers in quality, performance, style and value. And for those reasons and more, they turn to our inventory of Honda Certified Pre-Owned models.

When you first start shopping CPO sedans and SUVs at our Honda dealer in Bluffton, it quickly becomes apparent that the Certified designation is no mere marketing gimmick; rather, it’s a true demarcation point that can help quickly distinguish some of the most desirable used cars on our lot. If you’re looking to learn more about the Honda Certified Pre-Owned program, we encourage you to speak with the experts at Hilton Head Honda. One of our used Honda specialists will be happy to help you discover a reason — or two or three or four — to buy a CPO vehicle from us.

Why Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

The HondaTrue Certified Pre-Owned program doesn’t make it easy for a car to earn the coveted CPO designation. The vetting process begins by classifying eligible vehicles by age and mileage into one of the three following tiers:

  • HondaTrue Certified+
  • HondaTrue Certified
  • HondaTrue Used

The first two tiers fall under the Certified Pre-Owned umbrella, with HondaTrue Certified+ being the most selective — qualifying vehicles must be within 12 months or 12,000 miles of their original in-service date, come with a Vehicle History Report and undergo a 182-point inspection performed by an authorized Honda service technician. Only once a used Honda SUV or sedan meets and passes all these parameters can it be formally considered a HondaTrue Certified+.

HondaTrue Certified eligibility is nearly as discriminating as the flagship tier but considers all Honda vehicles that have up to 80,000 miles. HondaTrue Used, meanwhile, is open to vehicles from all makes that are 10 years old or newer. While these models aren’t considered CPO, they do offer additional advantages compared to other used cars for sale in Bluffton.
