May is CPO Month
Last week Kia Motors America announced the largest quarterly pre-owned sales total in company history. Kia performed better than the industry average demonstrating 17.3% year-over-year growth. Certified Pre-owned (CPO) vehicles are a key factor.
Off-lease vehicles are driving a CPO surge. In fact, Cars.com has dubbed May CPO Month and will be advocating CPO on its website and across its social media platforms. “Whether you’re considering a new or used car, one option you should explore is a certified pre-owned vehicle. These are late-model vehicles that in many cases are nearly new and come with warranties comparable to those you would get with a brand-new model. In addition, they often are available with low-rate financing similar to what is offered on new cars.”
Jessica Caldwell, executive director of industry analysis for Edmunds says, “For consumers who might be uneasy about buying used, CPO vehicles offer lower prices than a new car coupled with a warranty that provides peace of mind about wear and tear.”
Kia’s CPO Program is regarded as an industry best. KMA’s rigorous CPO program, administered by JM&A Group, accepts only Kia vehicles that are five years or newer with fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer and every vehicle undergoes a meticulous 150-point Quality Assurance inspection by certified Kia technicians. CPO vehicles also come with a 10-year /100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty2 and 12-month /12,000 mile-Platinum Coverage.
Kia Country CPO Inventory is easy to find both on our website, as well as, all third-party websites.
