Certified Pre-Owned: The Kia Advantage

October 21st, 2015 by

Kia Certified Pre-owned (CPO) vehicles allow you to purchase a user car with complete confidence. Each Kia CPO vehicle meets rigorous standards and comes with protections and guarantees. Every Kia CPO vehicle is less than five years old, has fewer than 60,000 miles and undergoes a 150-Point Quality Assurance Inspection. In addition you will receive:

  • Free CARFAX Report on Vehicle History
  • 24-Hour Roadside Assistance
  • 10-year/100,000 mile Certified Pre-owned Limited Powertrain Warranty
  • 12 month/12,000 mile Platinum Coverage
  • 24-Hour Roadside Assistance
  • 10-Year Unlimited Mileage Roadside Assistance Plan
  • Towing Rental/Travel Breakdown Coverage


Kia has a unique advantage over other car manufacturers CPO Programs because of its industry leading warranty. A new Kia is backed by 5 year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. When you buy Kia CPO, you get a 12 month/12,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and the power train warranty remains intact. Theoretically you could buy a Kia CPO with 59,000 miles and the basic warranty would be intact for an additional 12,000 miles. In a world where 3 year/36,000 mile warranties are standard fare, this is a considerable advantage.

Essentially, CPO car is a top quality used vehicle backed by a manufacturer’s warranty. Edmunds.com says, “Certified pre-owned (CPO) cars are popular with buyers who want to minimize the risk of buying a used car. They also can typically get more car for their money with a CPO vehicle than they can with a new car.”

It is important to understand that CPO isn’t a guarantee that you are buying a perfect car. It is important to have reasonable expectations and understand that you are buying a used car, even though, it is likely in much better condition than the average used car. In addition, if something goes wrong, you can be assured the dealer will fix it.
Buying CPO not only gives you peace of mind but stretches your dollars. You can buy a late model car fully loaded with extra options vs. a new bare bones model often for less money. New cars take a substantial and immediate depreciation hit so the previous owner has absorbed that loss for you. Due to short-term leases and those with buyer’s remorse, we often have cars that are near to new.
