Buying a used car can often be a gamble, especially in the private market. While it's possible to get a great vehicle at an attractive price, it's also possible to be landed with a lemon.
Buying a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle is a great way to take away this risk, and lets you buy a car with the quality and reliability of new but at a substantial discount. Kia's certified pre-owned program is one of the best available, and here are just some of the advantages it offers a savvy car buyer.
Every Kia in the certified pre-owned vehicle program undergoes an extensive 164-point inspection by a Kia-trained technician. Everything from the brakes through the electrical system to the engine is tested, and a single failure is enough to disqualify the vehicle.
And if any problems are found, a fully qualified technician will make any necessary repairs using only genuine, manufacturer-authorized parts.
Every car in the program also undergoes a full recondition, again using only genuine OEM parts, to return it to the state it was in when first driven off the production line. With a certified pre-owned vehicle you won't find any damage or signs of wear and tear, just an as-new car at a discounted price.
This extensive inspection, repair, and reconditioning process mean that a CPO vehicle can be offered with an extended warranty to give you even greater peace of mind. Kia's certified vehicles are supplied with a ten year, 160,000km limited warranty on the powertrain, with coverage starting when the car was first in service as new.
This warranty covers against mechanical breakdown of the engine, transmission, and drive axle. Not only are any needed repairs covered and free of charge, but you'll receive a rental car allowance during the repair, and travel breakdown protection coverage when you're 100 miles or more away from home.
But that's not the only warranty protection the CPO program provides. You'll also receive one year or 19,200km of Platinum coverage starting from date you buy your vehicle under the CPO program, and providing the highest level of coverage available from Kia.
Kia CPO vehicles are also provided with ten years' and unlimited kilometres of 24/7 roadside assistance coverage. This protects you from routine issues including flat tires, flat batteries, gasoline refills, and lock outs.
The policy also covers towing, rental, and travel breakdown costs, to remove all the worries about driving away from home. Compare the costs of ten years' roadside coverage from an independent supplier to see just how much this facility is worth.
Lastly, every certified pre-owned Kia is supplied with a free CarFax history report, so you know exactly what you're buying. This report covers accidents, ownership changes, product recalls, and more, offering full confidence that the vehicle has no nasty surprises lurking in its past.
