Honda has launched a pilot program that will allow customers to lease certified pre-owned vehicles.
The project has been created in cooperation with car-leasing platform Fair and will be available at six Honda dealerships in southern California and 13 Honda and Acura dealerships in southern Florida.
As noted by Car and Driver, the leasing program allows customers to choose a month-to-month lease term or a longer-term one. All certified pre-owned vehicles leased through the pilot program come with routine maintenance, roadside assistance and a limited warranty that lasts the lease term of the vehicle.
While customers will be able to head to the select Honda and Acura dealerships to sort out the lease, they will also be able to do it through the Fair app, including signing for the vehicle and organizing for it to be delivered.
Honda will run the pilot program for six months and determine if it is popular enough to continue.
“Launching this new pilot program is an exciting expansion for Fair with the addition of Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, known for their standard of quality and reliability, as an option for our customers,” Fair chief executive Brad Stewart said. “This new program also provides a seamless channel between one of the world’s great automakers and a discerning, yet loyal base of young customers and first-time customers, who are looking for access to a vehicle the same way they access the other services in their life: available on demand, and for the amount of time they want or need that vehicle.”
