When the time comes to upgrade your vehicle, you have a lot of options to consider and decisions to make. You might be comparing models from different manufacturers, must-have features, and even new vs. pre-owned vehicles. But one thing is for sure: A certified pre-owned (CPO) Hyundai is one of the best options available. Explore the selection of CPO models at Allen Turner Hyundai, as well as what makes this program so appealing to buyers across Crestview, Florida, and beyond.
A CPO vehicle is a car, truck, or SUV that has undergone an extensive inspection process and meets certain criteria in terms of its condition, mileage, and performance. Various automotive manufacturers have specific criteria for vehicles to qualify under individual CPO programs. Most also provide extended warranty coverage on CPO models, giving buyers increased peace of mind when investing in a used vehicle.
Hyundai offers its own CPO program, with various models qualifying for the added benefits. One of the most compelling reasons to purchase a Hyundai is the extensive warranty, which applies to new models for 10 years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first). It’s one of the best warranties in the industry, protecting vehicle owners from being on the hook for costly engine repairs or other major issues. However, if you buy a used Hyundai model, the full powertrain warranty doesn’t transfer. Instead, it reverts to the original warranty, which covers the vehicle for five years or 60,000 miles.
With a CPO Hyundai, the full powertrain warranty does transfer, providing more extensive coverage. If you opt for a hybrid or electric model, your vehicle will also include a 10-year or 100,000-mile warranty on the battery. Additionally, the remainder of the five-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty transfers on CPO Hyundai models. Buyers can also get access to incredible benefits and perks, which compete with the offerings from top luxury brands.
A CPO Hyundai undergoes an extensive inspection that assesses all of its most critical components. This 173-point inspection looks at the following systems and elements in extensive detail:
Qualified technicians also take the vehicle on a road test and review its history report. All electric and hybrid models undergo a more advanced mechanical inspection that includes an assessment of the onboard charger, battery capacity, and other electric- and hybrid-specific components.
CPO buyers also receive a detailed CARFAX report, which they can review to learn about the vehicle’s history and details. This extensive report covers accident history, maintenance records, owner history, and other factors that impact the car’s operability, condition, and value.
Choosing a CPO Hyundai comes with a few key benefits.
When you buy a pre-owned model from a private seller, you don’t always know what you’re going to get. The car could have major issues that the seller isn’t aware of or purposely hides from you to make the sale. You may end up having to invest in significant repairs due to poor maintenance.
By contrast, a CPO car doesn’t have anything to hide. An authorized Hyundai technician has performed an extensive inspection of every component of the vehicle to ensure its condition and value. By choosing a CPO Hyundai, you can maximize the value of the money you spend.
Peace of mind is hard to come by, especially when you’re in the market for a car. But with a CPO Hyundai, that’s exactly what you get. The warranty covers the car for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles, protecting you from major powertrain issues that could render the car undrivable or require expensive repairs or replacement services. The inspection and CARFAX reports show the condition of the car and whether it’s been in any accidents, if it has issues that require repair, and how well it’s been maintained over its lifespan.
Only lower-mileage Hyundai models qualify for the CPO program. The maximum is 80,000 miles. Additionally, Hyundai limits its program to include vehicles that are newer than six model years. As a result, the cars available are newer and in better condition than the used cars offered by private sellers. Since a vehicle’s repair and maintenance costs go up as it ages and increases in mileage, choosing a low-mileage and newer model can save you money.
All CPO Hyundai vehicles come with additional benefits that sweeten the deal. The first is rental car reimbursement, which covers the cost of a rental car when your Hyundai is undergoing repairs. This benefit covers up to 10 days at $35 per day and includes the first-day rental. Another benefit is travel interruption reimbursement, which applies if a mechanical breakdown of a covered part occurs when the vehicle is at least 150 miles from the owner’s home.
If a CPO Hyundai breaks down or experiences an issue, the roadside assistance benefit remains in effect for 10 years from the original in-service date and zero miles. The final benefit offered under the program is a three-month trial of SiriusXM satellite radio. In 2018, 2019, and 2020, Hyundai’s CPO program earned the top spot on Auto Trader’s list of non-luxury programs.
