Acura Certified Pre-Owned

Benefits of Buying Certified


When you purchase an Acura Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from Acura Santa Barbara, you can expect the same uncompromising standards of a brand-new Acura. All vehicles are under six years old with less than 80,000 miles and have a 12-month/12,000-mile Certified Limited Warranty and provides powertrain coverage for up to 7 years*/100,000 total odometer miles (which ever comes first). Each vehicle must also pass a 182-point vehicle inspection and is covered by an extensive Roadside Assistance program.

Certification Process


The Acura Dealership technicians give it the once over 182 times.

Every vehicle must pass stringent measures before it can become a Acura Certified Pre-Owned. Only well-maintained, late-model Acura vehicles are considered, and each one must pass a comprehensive 182-point inspection and a Vehicle History Report review. Virtually every mechanical system-from the engine to the door locks-is checked and serviced to meet precise specifications, and a thorough appearance inspection scrutinizes fit and finish-inside and out-to ensure that every vehicle upholds the luxury and sophistication of the Acura name. The Acura Dealership technicians also inspect all placements of the Vehicle Identification Number to ensure that the VIN plates match. In addition, the VIN is researched for open service campaigns.
