If you're thinking about buying a used car but are worried about maintenance and repairs, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle. CPO vehicles offer manufacturer-backed warranties, which add some peace of mind to the typical used-car buying process. Better yet, CPO cars often come with automaker deals and incentives to help make them even more affordable. To show you what we mean, we've rounded up today's top CPO deals and incentives on a few of our favorite certified pre-owned models.

Audi

Audi's certified pre-owned program offers excellent coverage, touting 6 years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection from the original sale date. While that's already an enticing offer compared to a standard used car without an additional warranty, Audi is sweetening the pot in December with an extra incentive for qualified drivers looking to finance a certified pre-owned Audi, offering 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on all 2012 and 2013 models. That's a rare deal on a used car, especially considering that it's coming directly from the automaker.

BMW

BMW's certified pre-owned program adds 2 years or 50,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage to the brand's original factory warranty, bringing total coverage to an excellent 6 years or 100,000 miles, which isn't bad for a luxury automaker with parts and repairs that can get fairly expensive. While that's already a pretty good offer, BMW has an even better one available through the end of the month for qualified shoppers interested in financing a certified pre-owned BMW, offering 0.9 percent interest on all 2012 and 2013 models. That's an impressively low rate, especially for a used car.

Cadillac

Cadillac's certified pre-owned program offers 6 years or 70,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage, which makes it an excellent rival to similar programs from luxury brands such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz. But Cadillac's CPO program offers more perks, including no deductible, full transferability and a 3-month trial of GM's OnStar system. The best part? Through the end of the month, qualified shoppers can buy a certified pre-owned Cadillac with interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for up to 36 months, a rare deal on a pre-owned luxury vehicle.

Ford

Ford's certified pre-owned program boasts excellent coverage, touting two excellent warranties: a 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty beginning when the original warranty expires and a 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain plan beginning on the car's original sale date. The program also has a few other perks, including a 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM radio and, through the end of December, a special financing offer for qualified shoppers of 2.99 percent on all certified pre-owned models for up to 66 months. While we don't love Ford's $100 CPO deductible, that deal certainly makes the brand's certified pre-owned warranty worth considering.

Hyundai

Hyundai's certified pre-owned warranty is among the best in the business, as it offers 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection. In December, Hyundai's CPO warranty is supplemented by an even better offer of 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on certified pre-owned versions of the Accent, the Elantra, the Sonata and the luxurious Genesis sedan. While we wish the deal also covered Hyundai's SUVs, it's an impressive offer nonetheless.

Lincoln

Lincoln's certified pre-owned program offers excellent warranty coverage, touting 6 years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the original sale date. It also boasts excellent, enticing perks, including a 3-month trial to SiriusXM radio and 24-hour roadside assistance. But probably the most alluring feature is the brand's current certified pre-owned incentive -- an interest rate as low as 1.9 percent for up to 48 months -- designed to appeal to qualified shoppers looking to finance a CPO Lincoln. That's a rare deal on a used luxury model.

Mazda

Mazda's certified pre-owned program touts two impressive warranties that give the brand's CPO cars an advantage over typical used vehicles. One is a bumper-to-bumper warranty covering used Mazda models for an additional 1 year or 12,000 miles beyond the original warranty period; the other is a powertrain plan offering up to 7 years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the original sale date. While that's certainly appealing, Mazda has yet another trick up its sleeve to appeal to qualified shoppers through the end of December with interest rates as low as 1.49 percent for up to 36 months, which is an excellent offer for a pre-owned vehicle.

Nissan

Nissan's certified pre-owned program is only average. While it touts no additional bumper-to-bumper warranty compared to the original factory warranty, it offers 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date. But while its warranty may not quite beat out plans offered by rival models, its December incentives are undoubtedly enticing. Specifically, Nissan is offering 0.9 percent interest for qualified shoppers for up to 36 months on any certified pre-owned model, which is an excellent deal for a used car. If you'd rather finance over a longer term, the brand is also touting 2.49 percent interest for up to 72 months. Nissan is also offering up to $450 cash back on some models, which is an unusual deal for a certified pre-owned vehicle.
