If you're interested in buying a used car that comes with a little extra peace of mind, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle. Certified cars come with a manufacturer-backed warranty and several other perks over a standard used car. In our latest video, we took a look at Hyundai's certified pre-owned program.
In order to qualify for Hyundai's certified pre-owned program, vehicles must meet several requirements. First, Hyundai dealers check the car's title to ensure that the car hasn't suffered any major accidents, floods or other previous issues. Hyundai also requires that cars be under 5 years old with less than 60,000 miles on the odometer before they can be certified. Hyundai dealer technicians then carefully inspect each vehicle to ensure that there aren't any unseen issues.
As for the warranty, Hyundai CPO vehicles come with 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain coverage, along with 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection -- both of which begin on the original sale date. If you have an issue with your certified pre-owned Hyundai, expect to pay a $50 deductible per repair visit. Hyundai's certified pre-owned warranty is also fully transferable, which will be a benefit if you decide to sell the car in the future.
Hyundai's certified pre-owned program also offers several perks, such as 10 years of roadside-assistance coverage, rental car and travel interruption reimbursement, and special financing rates. Yes, a certified pre-owned vehicle may cost more than a typical used car, but with the benefits you get from a program like Hyundai's, the additional expense is worth it for many shoppers.
