Register your used vehicle

Insure your used vehicle

Same with alerting the government of the change in ownership, you need to alert your insurance company that you now drive a different vehicle, which may change your insurance premiums. If you traded in your old car to Hardin County Honda, you also need to have it removed from your insurance plan.

Make a maintenance plan for your vehicle

Keeping up with your used car’s recurring maintenance is crucial for keeping it in running condition and maintaining its value. Read the owner’s manual and talk with our service advisors to create a plan for your car.
