SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — American Honda Motor Co. has named Experian Automotive as a provider of vehicle history reports for its Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles and Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles programs.

As part of the agreement, pre-owned Honda and Acura vehicles now will be reviewed against the information in the AutoCheck vehicle database to help uncover any potential issues that may exist before being certified. Additionally, dealers will have the ability to extend Experian Automotive’s buyback protection program to their customers.

“We take great pride in our national certified pre-owned portfolio, and only those vehicles that meet our premier program standards are awarded Honda and Acura certified status,” said Brian Butts, national manager of auto remarketing for American Honda Motor Co. “The inclusion of AutoCheck vehicle history reports further enhances the Honda and Acura certified programs and gives our customers an additional level of assurance that they’re purchasing the right vehicle.”

AutoCheck vehicle history reports will give more than 1,300 participating Honda and Acura dealerships another option when providing in-depth vehicle history information to help determine whether a vehicle qualifies to meet the high standards of the Honda and Acura CPO programs. Additionally, dealers will have access to the patented AutoCheck Score, enabling them to help customers quickly compare a vehicle with similar models.

“In order for used-car buyers to feel completely satisfied with their purchase, they need to know that the vehicle they’re driving off the lot is dependable,” said Dave Nemtuda, senior vice president of Experian Automotive. “The detailed information included in AutoCheck vehicle history reports, combined with our buyback protection program, provides customers with peace of mind that the vehicle they’re purchasing meets their expectations.”
