If you're looking to buy a new vehicle without breaking the bank, you might be interested in searching for a used car. Unfortunately, with many used cars, you can't always be sure what you're getting. Everyone has a horror story about a friend who bought a used car from a stranger and, after a few weeks, found out the cost of needed repairs was higher than the money saved by purchasing used. No one wants to be the person who gets stuck with the task of repairing a dysfunctional car.
Any easy way to make sure you're getting a quality used car is by looking into certified pre-owned, or CPO, vehicles. What makes a vehicle CPO, you ask? Often, these cars are two- or three-year-old models that have been traded in by repeat customers who absolutely have to have the latest and greatest models. The cars are returned to the OEM, which inspects them for quality and determines whether they can enter the CPO program, which ultimately offers the next buyer a guarantee of quality.
KIA boasts its own fantastic CPO program that adds an extra stamp of quality to used cars like the Sorento, Soul and Forte. KIA's CPO program ensures that all vehicles undergo the 150-Point Quality Assurance inspection. These cars are thoroughly inspected to make sure they meet an extensive checklist of quality standards.
As a result, CPO vehicles are much higher quality than many used cars. In cases where a car has been worn, work is done to repair the vehicle and make it like new. CPO vehicles are in top condition and often, in the case of KIA’s CPO program, available under warranty, so you can feel free to bring your car in to the dealership for service if anything goes wrong.
Along with the inspection, KIA also provides CARFAX Vehicle History Reports alongside the CPO cars. The vehicle will also come with a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, 12-month/12,000 mile platinum coverage, Roadside Assistance, and Travel Breakdown Coverage. Kia's CPO program ensures you will not only buy a high-quality used car, but that the performance of the car will continue to deliver for years to come.
