In the second-hand car market, vehicles that are casa-maintained usually get a higher resale value. To help you prove that your vehicle is regularly serviced by authorized dealerships, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) is now rolling out its Vehicle Certification Program for customers who observe the prescribed periodic maintenance service schedules of their vehicles.
Vehicles are certified based on the compliance to standard periodic maintenance as prescribed by Honda. The certificate will come in handy for those looking for pre-loved Hondas, as it assures and certifies that the used vehicle being sold has gone through proper care and maintenance.
Eligible vehicles may be certified based on two categories of certificates, depending on the vehicle’s warranty condition:
- Customers with vehicle within warranty period must complete the required six Periodic Maintenance Service (PMS) visits from purchase date.
- Customers with vehicles that are beyond three years from the purchase date must complete four consecutive standard PMS visits after the warranty period.
Should the vehicles reach 10,000 kilometers ahead of the prescribed 6-month PMS interval period, the standard PMS schedule considering period shall be observed (6 months or 10,000kms, whichever comes first).
Checking and replacement of parts and lubricants must be aligned with Honda’s standard PMS schedule. Usage of non-genuine Honda parts or any vehicle modifications are subject to disqualification to the Honda Certification Program.
Customers with eligible vehicles may obtain their certificates free of charge from the servicing dealership.
Certificates for vehicles within warranty will be issued upon the last maintenance visit of customer upon confirmation that they have qualified for the program. On the other hand, certificates for out-of-warranty vehicles will be issued upon request. The validity of certificates shall be annotated on the certificate, which has an effectivity of six months from the last maintenance visit.
