CPO Qualifications

In order to become certified, a pre-owned vehicle must meet certain qualifications. Most brands require that the vehicle be a late-model car, and they usually have age and mileage limits. Mazda CPO vehicles, for example, can be no more than six years old and must have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer. Since most recent-model cars will last for well over 100,000 miles, people in East Petersburg are certain to have a vehicle they can enjoy driving for many years.

Certified Pre-Owned Cars Must Pass Vigorous Inspections

But that's not the only restrictions that cars must meet to become certified pre-owned. Most automakers require the vehicle to pass in-depth inspections to make the grade. Hyundai CPO cars, for example, must pass a 173-point inspection to earn certification. Inspection requirements vary by brand, but generally all the most critical components are examined, tested, and reconditioned, if necessary. Most every CPO program also stipulates that the vehicle must have a clean vehicle history report to get certified. This way York, PA drivers will know how many owners the car had, its service records, and whether the vehicle had previously been in an accident.

CPO Vehicles Come with Extensive Warranty Coverage

All certified pre-owned cars have warranty coverage that varies by automaker. Some luxury brands, like Lexus, offer up to six years of warranty protection with unlimited miles. Honda CPO vehicles, for example, come with a seven-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. They also have non-powertrain coverage that varies by model-year. Toyota's certified pre-owned warranty offers 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the day you buy the car, along with 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date.

Other CPO Perks

Most certified pre-owned programs offer complimentary 24/7 roadside assistance that Lancaster drivers will appreciate if they're ever stranded by the side of the road. A technician from a dealership's service center will come out to where you are and tow your car, jumpstart it, deliver gas, change a flat tire, or unlock your vehicle if you're locked out. Many CPO programs also include trip interruption reimbursement that can pay for things like hotel stays and meals. People in East Petersburg will like that some CPO programs, including Cadillac, offer a free trial subscription to satellite radio with the purchase of a certified pre-owned vehicle.
