Hyundai's CPO Program Qualifications


In order to be considered a Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned car, a vehicle must first be passed by Hyundai standards. That's how you know that any CPO car you take home will boast impressive quality.


A vehicle must first go through a 150-point inspection (or 154-point inspection and 166-point inspection on the Sonata Hybrid and the Equus, respectively) before earning the title of Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle. These inspections are thorough and analyze both mechanical performance and appearance. Here are some of the categories each vehicle is tested in:


o   Each vehicle is taken for a test-drive by technicians so that can analyze 17 different points, including ABS operation, throttle, and cruise control.


o   The exterior of every Hyundai is inspected not just for looks, but for operation. Inspection includes 31 different points, including the mirrors, windshield, and even the trunk carpet. 


o   The inside is inspected as well, at 57 different points. The air conditioning, power equipment, and horn are just some of the factors checked.


o   Mechanical features are some of the most crucial aspects of your vehicle, and they are thoroughly inspected by technicians on 37 different points. The exhaust, radiator, battery, warning lights, and more, are all checked for quality.

          Tires & Wheels

o   The tires and wheels are checked at 8 different points to ensure their quality. Some aspects checked include tire pressure, lug nuts, and tread depth.

All of these inspections are performed by factory-trained technicians, who know exactly what it takes for a Hyundai to own the road.

Vehicle History

Every car comes with a complimentary CARFAX® Vehicle History ReportTM, which means that you'll know the true quality of the car you're getting. These reports have information on previous owners, mechanical problems, or any collision history. This pairs with the thorough inspection in order to give you more peace of mind.
