Buying a car can be both an exciting and nerve-wracking process. We are here to calm your nerves with answers to some much-asked questions about certified pre-owned vehicles.

What does "CPO" stand for and what does it mean?

If you don't already know, the acronym "CPO" stands for Certified Pre-Owned. Certified Pre-Owned cars are different from used cars in that they are inspected and approved by Hyundai experts before being considered a CPO car.

Are CPO cars more expensive than used cars? New cars?

In general, no. Many CPO cars are the same price or even less expensive than used cars. If they are more expensive, it's typically because they have better quality than their used counterparts. Another benefit is that CPO cars that are two years old are just 25% cheaper than new cars, while four-year-old CPOs can be as much as 40% cheaper. 

How do cars get labeled "CPO"?

In order to be a part of the Hyundai CPO Program, a vehicle must first go through a rigorous, 150-point inspection process. The process looks at mechanical components as well as exterior and interior appearance.  

Do CPO cars come with a warranty?

Yes, they do. Every Hyundai CPO vehicle comes with the same comprehensive warranty program that comes with your Hyundai car initially. With every CPO car, you'll get what's left of the 5-year/60,000-Mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Plus, every CPO car comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty. Other benefits include a 10-year Roadside Assistance coverage, rental car reimbursement, and a travel interruption reimbursement. 

How much do I know about the car's history?

Hyundai wants you to have peace of mind, which is why every Hyundai CPO car comes with a complimentary CARFAX® Vehicle History Report. With this report, you will know the history of your car, its previous mechanical problems or collisions.
