The Acura Precision Used program is a new addition to the luxury brand’s roster of certified pre-owned (CPO) offerings. Qualifying cars can be up to 10 years old and must meet a set of mechanical and cosmetic criteria to qualify for the program. With the price of new cars reaching all-time highs, Acura Precision Used is meant to attract shoppers who value the benefits of a luxury vehicle but might balk at spending luxury levels of money to own one.
Acura Precision Used Vehicle Requirements
As with any CPO offering, a qualifying car or SUV has to fit within certain parameters to be considered for the program. While Acura Precision Certified is limited to cars from the 2017-2022 model years, Precision Used covers Acura products dating to 2012 and has no cap on overall mileage.
Imagine buying a 9-year-old vehicle with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer. Scary, right? Now imagine Acura gave that vehicle a thorough inspection and then backed it with a 6-month, 7,500-mile warranty that covers most of the things covered by the original new-vehicle warranty. Breathing easier? Acura Precision Used makes buying an older vehicle — and enjoying the savings — much less stressful.
112-Point Vehicle Inspection
Every Acura Precision Used car or SUV is subjected to a 112-point quality inspection by a certified Acura technician. So no, not just any corner mechanic can sign off that an Acura is in tip-top shape and ready for the CPO treatment. With older used vehicles, the vehicle analysis is slightly less focused on cosmetic issues — such as small door dings or reasonable signs of wear in the cabin. The main point is to troubleshoot mechanical parts, items that could be due replacement or repair.
Should your Acura Precision Used vehicle experience any mechanical troubles within your first year or 12,000 miles, one call to roadside assistance will solve many common problems.
One complimentary oil change within 1 year or 12,000 miles of taking delivery of an Acura Precision Used vehicle is included.
Vehicle History Report
To qualify, any used Acura vehicle must have a clear Carfax or AutoCheck report. This helps an Acura technician zero in on any items that might have been previously damaged and repaired, and it allows a used car shopper to relax knowing the history of the vehicle from the point when the car was new.
7-Day Vehicle Exchange Policy
Grab the keys and take a week to think about whether that used Acura you took home is right for you. That’s correct: Acura Precision Used allows customers to have 7 days to consider their purchase before having to commit. The car has to be in the same condition as when it left the dealership, and can’t have more than 300 new miles on the odometer.
Trip Interruption Reimbursement
Imagine your car breaks down, you’re more than 100 miles from home, and you’re stuck not only with a repair bill, but money spent for food and lodging while you wait. Acura will cover 3 days of expenses at $300 per day, for a maximum of $900 in reimbursement.
From the time of sale an Acura Precision Used vehicle comes with 1 year or 12,000 miles of the brand’s concierge service. This is most commonly used to help during an accident, though it’s also possible to check weather forecasts or even arrange for the replacement of vital travel items, such as medications that might have been lost or forgotten.
Other Acura Precision Coverage
Of course, Acura also offers a more traditional certified pre-owned vehicle program in Acura Precision Certified, featuring newer vehicles and greater perks.
