Many drivers are unaware of just what a certified pre-owned vehicle is. There used to be an age where buying a pre-owned vehicle was risky, and while most of the unscrupulous dealerships have faded away, that stigma still lingers around. Automakers like Hyundai have initiated a program to help convince drivers of the viability of pre-owned vehicles by creating a certification program.
For Hyundai's CPO program, a vehicle may only be declared “certified”
- A comprehensive 150-point inspection
- Fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer
- The vehicle must be no more than five years old
In return, drivers receive more than just the assurance that their vehicle is up to the Hyundai standard of excellence — CPO Hyundai models also include a reinstated 10-year/100,000-
Drivers will even have the option to purchase extended warranty coverage, and enjoy such privileges as a 1-day rental car for repairs, 90 days of free SiriusXM satelltie radio, and 10-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance.
IntelliChoice is the only source that routinely evaluates manufacturers' certification programs, giving their praise a significant amount of weight. Hyundai earned their award primarily through their warranty and inspection options, which both provide a solid foundation for a driver seeking a pre-owned vehicle they can trust.
In addition to carrying a range of pre-owned vehicles that include these award-winning CPO models, Family Hyundai also features the entire lineup of brand new Hyundai vehicles and offers on-site financing and auto service to Chicagoland drivers.
