Purchasing a new car can give the buyer a sense of peace. Warranties, quality, and reliability are associated with new vehicles and are their main attraction. However, don’t be fooled into thinking a brand-new car is your only option to ensure these benefits. Kia’s Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) inventory is able to give you the perks of a new car at a better value.
Ensure Quality With a Certified Pre-Owned Kia
On average, a new car loses 11% of its value once it leaves the lot, and after five years it has lost 60%. While there are no hard and fast statistics surrounding used car depreciation, it has generally held to be true that the rate of used car depreciation is not as drastic.
Even though these statistics make it clear that a used car holds its value better over the long run, this still isn’t enough to convince many buyers to make the leap from purchasing new vehicles to used Kia cars. Knowing this, Kia created their CPO program in order to give their customers more confidence in their used automobiles.
The Kia CPO program follows specific standards, and each car must meet these qualifications in order to pass certification. These rigid standards for pre-owned Kia models are as follows:
- No more than 5 years old
- Has fewer than 60,000 miles
- Passed a thorough 150-Point Quality Assurance inspection
Once used Kia cars are deemed CPO, they gain a number of other benefits. These include:
- 10 year / 100,000 mile Certified Pre-Owned Limited Powertrain Warranty
- Includes the major parts of the vehicle and offers protection against any major mechanical breakdown
- Covers the engine, transmission, and drive axle
- 12 month / 12,000 mile Platinum coverage
- Covers almost all assemblies of the vehicle
- Includes steering, air conditioning, front suspension, electrical, and rear suspension
- 24-Hour Roadside Assistance
- Towing/Rental/Travel Breakdown coverage
- Free CARFAXⓇ report on vehicle history
- 10-year unlimited mileage roadside assistance plan
- Eligible For Additional Failure Coverage
