If you don’t want to spend big money on a brand-new car, but you’re concerned about the potential repair bills that could crop up with a used car, a certified pre-owned (CPO) model could be a great option for you. A CPO car is a lightly used vehicle that boasts a big discount from the original price — while also offering a long, manufacturer-backed warranty for excellent peace of mind. Additionally, many automakers offer CPO deals and incentives to help entice car shoppers. To show you what we mean, we’ve rounded up a few of the best offers available in June on several top certified pre-owned programs and a few of our favorite used vehicles.
Acura’s certified pre-owned program touts excellent coverage that offers 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection from the car’s original sale date, plus one year of additional comprehensive coverage. In June, Acura’s CPO program also offers a great deal: Through the end of the month, qualified shoppers can get a certified pre-owned TLX, ILX or TL sedan with 1.49 percent interest for up to 36 months — a good deal that usually only applies to brand-new models.
Buick’s certified pre-owned program offers 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain warranty coverage from the original sale date, plus an extra year of bumper-to-bumper coverage — along with several other excellent benefits. In June, Buick’s CPO program also offers a strong incentive: Through the end of the month, qualified shoppers can get 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on any certified pre-owned Buick Enclave, Encore or LaCrosse — a good deal that typically only applies to new vehicles.
Chevrolet’s certified pre-owned program touts impressive coverage that boasts bumper-to-bumper warranty protection for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date — plus an extra 1 year or 12,000 miles of comprehensive warranty coverage tacked on to the original factory warranty. In June, Chevrolet is also offering a good incentive to qualified shoppers interested in financing a certified pre-owned vehicle: 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on any certified pre-owned Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, Silverado or Traverse.
Ford Escape, Focus, and Fusion
Ford’s CPO program touts great coverage, as it includes up to 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain warranty protection from the car’s original sale date — along with an extra year or 12,000 miles of bumper to bumper coverage. Its only flaw is the warranty deductible, which is a rather high $100 — but that’s not such a big deal in June as Ford’s CPO warranty boasts a budget-friendly special offer: Through the end of the month, qualified shoppers can get 1.9 percent interest for up to 66 months on certified pre-owned versions of the Fusion midsize sedan, Escape compact crossover, and Focus compact car — an alluringly long term (and a great interest rate) on three of the brand’s most popular vehicles.

Infiniti’s certified pre-owned program is among the best on the market, as it offers coverage that lasts up to 6 years on many models — a deal that also includes unlimited mileage, which virtually no other automaker offers. This month, shoppers interested in a certified pre-owned Infiniti can also get a special incentive: Through the end of the month, the automaker is offering 0.99 percent interest for up to 36 months on all certified pre-owned Infiniti models. That’s one of the best CPO incentives available today.
Kia’s certified pre-owned program is among our favorites, as it offers powertrain protection for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles — better than virtually any other CPO program on the market. In June, Kia’s CPO program is offered with a strong incentive for qualified shoppers interested in financing a certified pre-owned model: Through the end of the month, the automaker is touting 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on all certified pre-owned Kia models. That’s a great deal — and one you’d typically expect to only find on a new car.
Subaru’s certified pre-owned program boasts additional coverage that lasts for up to 7 years or 100,000 miles from the initial sale date. While Subaru’s CPO program doesn’t offer any additional bumper-to-bumper coverage, it does tout two other big benefits: no deductible, and full transferability to future owners. In June, there’s yet another big benefit to getting a certified pre-owned Subaru: The automaker is offering 1.49 percent interest for up to 36 months on all certified pre-owned models — a great deal for qualified shoppers.
The Toyota RAV4 is a popular compact crossover with a 4-cylinder engine and a surprisingly roomy interior — along with notable durability. Nonetheless, many shoppers still prefer the peace of mind that comes with a manufacturer-backed CPO warranty — and Toyota’s program is good, touting up to 7 years of powertrain protection from the original sale date, plus an additional year of bumper-to-bumper coverage. In June, qualified shoppers interested in a CPO RAV4 can also get a good incentive: Up to 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months, which is a better deal than most other Toyota models.
