Selection for the CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) program
Each vehicle is assessed by the Used car department and the decision made to include in the Acura Certified program is made if they feel the car appearance is up to standard.
The Used Car Manager starts the process with a request to the Service Department to complete the full mechanical inspection which the Acura Canada Program demands.
- The Sales Manager: will also inspect the documentation and check the vehicles VIN, kilometres and precise model and trim level.
- The ownership, owner’s manual and service history will be examined.
- The service department is required to bring all servicing up to date matching the vehicles mileage
- A Carfax vehicle history report is obtained which will provide details of any accidents, insurance, claims and even body shop estimates that may have occurred with the vehicle. The Carfax report also checks if there are any financial liens on the car as well so buyers can be confident in their purchase.
The service department factory-trained technician assesses the overall condition of the vehicles and then completes the Acura Canada mechanical inspection form. If there are any items such as brakes, tires, and other service items that are found to be below the required Acura Certified standard these items are replaced or serviced using all genuine Acura parts. There is a full underbody inspection of the steering components for safety and finally a comprehensive test drive to check the vehicle is performing properly and there is no brake vibration or handling problems and that the transmission is smooth and operating correctly.
