CPO Deals: September 2016

If your budget won’t allow for a new car, but you’re worried about potential issues with a used model, a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle might be the right choice for you. CPO cars and trucks are often lightly used, with a long factory warranty for greater peace of mind than a standard used car. Better yet, some automakers offer CPO deals and incentives to help sweeten the pot for shoppers interested in a certified vehicle. To show you what we mean, we’ve rounded up some of the top incentives available this month from a few of our favorite CPO programs.

Acura

Acura

Acura’s CPO program offers two alluring warranties: 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original purchase date, plus an additional year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection beyond the initial coverage. In September, Acura’s CPO program is even more enticing, because it offers an impressive incentive for qualified shoppers: 0.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on certified ILX, TL and TLX models. That’s a new-car financing rate for a used vehicle.

Audi

Audi’s CPO warranty is one of our favorites, as it boasts 6 years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the original sale date — an excellent term for a used luxury car. This month, Audi’s CPO program is also offered with a rare incentive: Through the end of the month, qualified drivers interested in a certified used Audi can get 1.9 percent interest on all 2013-2015 models for up to 60 months. That’s an excellent deal that comes with the peace of mind of a factory warranty.

Cadillac’s CPO program offers an excellent 6 years or 70,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the vehicle’s original sale date, providing shoppers interested in a used Cadillac with extra peace of mind. In September, Cadillac’s CPO warranty also comes with 0 percent financing for up to 60 months, plus 12 months of free OnStar service at no charge. The low rate should help sway qualified drivers to choose a CPO Cadillac, while the OnStar service is a nice cherry on top.

2015 GMC Acadia     2015 GMC Terrain

GMC Acadia and Terrain

The GMC Acadia and Terrain are popular midsize (Acadia) and compact (Terrain) crossovers with bold styling and plenty of excellent technology. GMC’s CPO warranty offers 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date, along with an extra year of bumper-to-bumper protection. Combine the two, and it’s great news for shoppers interested in a good used SUV with excellent peace of mind. Better yet, GMC has an impressive offer available this month for CPO Acadia and Terrain models: 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months. That’s a great deal for a used SUV — especially one with a long manufacturer-backed warranty.

Kia Optima and Sorento

Kia’s CPO program offers excellent coverage, especially in terms of its powertrain warranty, which boasts protection for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date. In September, Kia is also offering a good deal for shoppers interested in a CPO version of the popular Optima midsize sedan and Sorento SUV: 0.9 percent interest for up to 36 months. While that term is shorter than what many drivers prefer, it’s a rare chance to get such a low interest rate on a used car, especially one with a long warranty.
