Enjoy a Range of HondaTrue Certified Models at Nardy Honda Smithtown

Whether you're looking for a reliable SUV for your next road trip or you just want to save some money on a good commuter car, you have a choice to make. It's not uncommon for our customers in Smithtown to be torn between buying a new Honda model, which comes with warranties and the latest technology, or purchasing a used Honda vehicle, which can save you quite a bit of money. Fortunately, these aren't your only options when you shop at Nardy Honda Smithtown.



There are a lot of benefits to owning a certified pre-owned Honda car, SUV, minivan or truck and we're happy to take you through the process. The certified pre-owned vehicles are all 2014 or newer under the HondaTrue Certified process and include benefits like:

  • Seven-Year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty- if the vehicles are purchased in the New Vehicle Limited Warranty period, this will also extend that warranty to four-years/48,000-miles.
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Up to two complimentary oil changes within the first year of ownership
  • Honda Care® eligibility- this gives you access to long term reliability and protection for your engine, transmission, suspension, air conditioning/heating and fuel system.
  • 90-Day Trial of SiriusXM® Radio

All-new in August of 2019 is the availability of HondaTrue Certified+ which adds to the benefits of the base program with extended benefits. This service is only included on 2018 and later Honda vehicles and extends the new vehicle limited warranty period to five-years/86,000-miles. Honda wants to ensure that you're covered when you buy one of the certified pre-owned vehicles from our dealership.

What Are HondaTrue Certified Models?

Any used Honda vehicle that's HondaTrue Certified has gone through a 182-point inspection, ensuring that it adheres to Honda's strict quality standards. If a component fails any part of this inspection, the vehicle can't be certified unless and until the component is replaced or repaired so that it passes.

They also come with a range of benefits, including the much-appreciated factory-backed warranties that make new models so appealing around Port Jefferson. However, there are different tiers within Honda's Certified Pre-Owned program, and they offer slightly different benefits.

HondaTrue Certified+

The best and highest-quality pre-owned Honda models are HondaTrue Certified+. These are models that have less than 12,000 miles on them and less than 12 months from their original in-service date. Many of the HondaTrue Certified+ vehicles were used for dealership business and test drives in the Ronkonkoma area, so they have next to no wear and tear on them.

Because these models are so new, they have some incredible benefits:

  • Powertrain Coverage for seven years or 100,000 miles from the original in-service date
  • Extends original New Vehicle Limited Warranty to five years or 86,000 miles from the original in-service date
  • Roadside Assistance
  • A Three-Day Exchange Policy
  • Up to two complimentary oil changes within the first year of ownership

HondaTrue Certified

For pre-owned Honda models that are older than 12 months or that have more than 12,000 miles on them, they can still be HondaTrue Certified if they have less than 80,000 miles on them. They still go through the same multipoint inspection as HondaTrue Certified+ vehicles, so you can trust them to excel on the roads of Commack.

Because of this guarantee of quality, you can enjoy many of the same benefits as HondaTrue Certified+ models.

  • Powertrain Coverage for seven years or 100,000 miles from the original in-service date
  • For vehicles purchased within the original New Vehicle Limited Warranty, extends original New Vehicle Limited Warranty to four years or 48,000 miles from the original in-service date
  • For vehicles purchased after the original New Vehicle Limited Warranty, provides New Vehicle Limited Warranty for one year or 12,000 miles from the delivery date
  • Roadside Assistance
  • A Three-Day Exchange Policy
  • Up to two complimentary oil changes within the first year of ownership
