Audi CPO Buying Guide

  Audi CPO Buying Guide Audi certified pre-owned vehicles must meet higher standards than non-certified used cars. That’s why Audi’s program entails a thorough 300+ Point Inspection and Certification process. The dealership selling the car will check components from headlights to the engine to the vehicle’s electrical and safety systems. Audi requires that the vehicle have only one previous owner. That owner must be able to show a clean title without history of an accident. Warranty Audi’s Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty becomes effective when the Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires. The automaker’s warranty for certified pre-owned models provides coverage for two years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Coverage is limited to the first 100,000 miles or six years on the vehicle’s odometer. Customers must pay an $85 deductible per dealer visit. Note that the CPO warranty is not an extension of the original four-year/50,000-mile Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Combined, the factory-backed warranties may provide coverage for up to six years or 100,000 miles, depending on the time elapsed and miles driven when the certified pre-owned warranty takes effect. Extras Certified pre-owned Audi buyers will also receive the balance of any Audi Care Pre-Paid Scheduled Maintenance, as well as the remainder of the vehicle’s 12-year Limited Warranty against Corrosion Perforation, regardless of mileage.

Called the People First Warranty, the coverage is fully transferable within the warranty period. So no matter how many times the vehicle changes hands in those six years, the warranty goes with it. Just as it does for Atlas and Tiguan, the warranty covers all powertrain and drivetrain components, including the engine, transmission, and 4Motion all-wheel drive system, when equipped. The new warranty replaces the 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty Volkswagen previously offered.

Fiat CPO Buying Guide

  Fiat CPO Buying Guide Fiat has its own certified pre-owned program, which is independent of the CPO programs of FCA’s other brands: Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram. It is known as the Fiat Certified Pre-Driven Program (CPD). Any Fiat vehicle that is less than six years old is eligible for the program. Fiat doesn’t specify a maximum number of miles that would disqualify a car from certification. Based on this information, all Fiat models in our rankings would qualify. Inspection Process Fiat leaves out important details regarding its certified pre-owned (pre-driven) program. The automaker does not provide online access to an inspection-point checklist. Fiat claims that vehicles are “100% tested” and receive “a demanding inspection and reconditioning process” using authentic Mopar parts. Fiat does include general qualification standards, including mechanical standards, maintenance standards, appearance standards, and detail standards, when considering a vehicle for certification. Buyers will receive ownership materials, including documents of a clear title, service records, a CARFAX vehicle history report, and a one-year transferable CARFAX Buyback Guarantee agreement. Warranty All Fiat CPO (CPD) vehicles come with a six-year/80,000-mile (whichever comes first) comprehensive limited warranty. The warranty covers most major powertrain and assembly components, which includes the engine, transmission, and driveline. However, Fiat charges a $150 deductible for covered repairs and replacements.

Kia CPO Buying Guide .
Getting a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle gives you the warranty of a new car and the lower price of a used one. Getting a CPO Kia means you knock a chunk of change off the already low price of a Kia vehicle, and get the famous Kia warranty to boot: 10 years or 100,000 miles on the powertrain. You can learn more about the Kia CPO program and how it compares to CPO programs from rival manufacturers below. Which Used Kia Vehicles Are Eligible? Any Kia that is less than five years old and has less than 60,000 miles is eligible for the Kia certified pre-owned program. But that doesn’t mean every car fitting that description makes it in. To earn that stamp, and the warranties that come with it, each Kia has to pass a detailed inspection. Inspection Process To become a Certified Pre-Owned Kia, each qualifying vehicle must pass a 150-point inspection. This inspection covers everything from internal engine diagnostics to the condition of the frame and undercarriage, air conditioner and other accessories, emissions system, tires, brakes, wheels, and pretty much anything the car needs to function as it was designed to function. Some of this is done visually, but there is also a road test to check the performance of the engine, transmission, suspension, and brakes, along with basic functions like windshield wipers, the horn, the parking brake, and interior switches and dials. Warranty Kia is known for its long warranties, and that applies to certified pre-owned Kia vehicles too.
