If you’re on the lookout for a budget-friendly, new-to-you car, you may be unsure about the difference between a pre-owned and a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle. Which is the better choice? Here’s why a Kia Certified Pre-Owned vehicle may be your best option.  

Guaranteed Quality 

A Kia vehicle must pass a rigorous 165-point inspection before it can earn its CPO qualification. A factory-trained mechanic will check that everything in the vehicle is functional, and they’ll also perform a road test to make sure that the car drives smoothly. If the inspection reveals any problems, the mechanic will complete any necessary repairs before the car hits the lot.  

Kia CPO vehicles must be five years or newer, with under 60,000 miles. For those looking for all the latest tech and safety features, a CPO vehicle can be a great cost-effective alternative to a brand-new car. You’ll also receive a complete vehicle history report with your purchase, so there won’t be any surprises. 

Extended Coverage 

Buying a Kia Certified Pre-Owned vehicle has added perks. Owners are covered for ten years by the Unlimited Mile Roadside Assistance Program. This program provides 24/7 complimentary emergency services such as flat tire replacement and battery jumpstarts.  

Upon purchasing your vehicle, you’ll also receive a Kia Certified Pre-Owned 10 Year/100,000 Mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, which offers protection against covered engine, transmission, and drive axle mechanical breakdowns. Additionally, you’ll get a One Year/12,000 Mile Platinum Coverage plan, which begins on the vehicle’s purchase date.
