What distinguishes a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle from a regular used car? What are the benefits of a Kia Certified Pre-Owned car that you don’t get in a non-CPO vehicle? Find out what makes our CPO cars advantageous for buyers.

What Classifies a Vehicle as CPO?

CPO vehicles must meet a stringent set of requirements to acquire the CPO designation. The requirements may vary between auto manufacturers and dealerships.

All Kia CPO vehicles undergo a 165-point inspection. This covers inspections of parts that may not be covered in a more basic inspection that a non-CPO car goes through. In addition, vehicles are also subjected to a history check from CARFAX.

That’s not all. To be eligible, models must have been released within the last four-years and cannot have more than 60,000 miles.

The Advantages of CPO

With the purchase of a CPO car comes a complimentary 10-year 24/7 roadside assistance. No matter the day or hour, professional tow service can be at your side within minutes should you run into car troubles like a flat tire, a lock-out, or a dead battery. The roadside assistance includes travel breakdown protection in effect within a 100-mile radius from your home.

In addition, all CPO car purchases come with a powertrain limited warranty coverage good for the first 100,000 miles or first 10 years of ownership. Buyers also receive Platinum Coverage good for one year or the first 12,000 miles. This is the highest-level coverage plan, and it’s also transferable.
