Hyundai CPO Program Tops Among Mainstream Automakers for 2020

For the third year in a row, Autotrader’s editors have chosen the Hyundai CPO program as the top certified pre-owned program among mainstream carmakers for 2020. At the heart of this choice is Hyundai’s generous 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which CPO Hyundais retain. In addition to the remainder of the original powertrain warranty, CPO Hyundais also retain whatever remains of the original 5-year/60,000-mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Noncertified Hyundai used cars also retain whatever remains of the original limited warranty, but the powertrain coverage drops from 10 years/100,000 miles to 5 years/60,000 miles. If you bought a 3-year-old CPO Hyundai with 30,000 miles on the odometer, the remaining warranty would be 2 years/30,000 miles of limited bumper-to-bumper coverage and 7 years/70,000 miles of powertrain coverage.

If your Hyundai is a hybrid or an electric vehicle, the CPO warranty includes the balance of the 10-year/100,000-mile battery warranty issued when the car was purchased new.

Other Hyundai CPO program benefits include a $35 per day rental car allowance during covered repairs, complimentary 24/7 roadside assistance and trip interruption benefits when covered repairs are required more than 150 miles from home.

The only significant shortcoming of Hyundai’s program is the $50 deductible that Hyundai requires for every covered repair. Also, the warranty doesn’t transfer to the next owner. This, however, is fairly standard among nonluxury CPO programs, some transfer and some do not. Only a handful of mainstream CPO plans — such as the ones from Chevrolet and Honda — don’t require a deductible, and a couple — such as the ones from Ford and FCA (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and so forth) — have a $100 deductible.

There are some pretty solid mainstream certified pre-owned programs out there, such as the ones from Kia and Mitsubishi. But all things considered, Hyundai’s is the top nonluxury CPO program for 2020. Find a CPO Hyundai for sale
