New cars are thousands of dollars more expensive than used cars, but used cars lack the peace of mind that drivers crave. Fortunately, there's a third option. Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come at a much more affordable price and feature the extensive coverage drivers want.

Certified Pre-Owned

Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are more affordable than new cars, but cost more than a used model. Not just any vehicle can enter the Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned program. Qualifying vehicles must be less than five years old and have less than 60,000 miles. They must then pass a rigorous quality assurance inspection.

A Hyundai-certified technician performs the entirety of the 150-point inspection with an eye open for defects, potential problems, and damages. If the vehicle fails just one point of the inspection, the problem is either fixed or the vehicle is not eligible for the program.

Once a vehicle has been certified to enter the Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned program, it comes with a vast array of standard benefits. For starters, buyers will receive a full Vehicle History Report™, three months of satellite radio, and rental car and travel interruption reimbursement.

Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come backed by what's left of the five-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty. Drivers will also receive 10 years of roadside assistance coverage and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

While a Certified Pre-Owned Hyundai may cost more than a comparable new model, the peace of mind and quality assurance is well worth it.


Used vehicles are often cheaper than a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, but they lack many of the benefits. Notably, the selection of used vehicles is wider, includes more manufacturers, and spans decades while Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are limited to five years old and newer.

Since Certified Pre-Owned and used vehicles essentially cost the same to replace, they'll have similar insurance rates as well. Neither vehicle will depreciate once it leaves the lot, which means owners won't lose much in value.
