Infiniti’s CPO warranty offers several different types of bumper-to-bumper coverage. It also boasts 24-hour roadside assistance, a 3-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, complimentary first year basic maintenance and complimentary Infiniti loaner car.
What We Like
Long available warranty; complimentary loaner car; free first year basic scheduled maintenance
What We Don’t
Confusing warranty length
Infiniti’s certified pre-owned program is designed to add a little peace-of-mind to the used car buying process, as the program touts several different warranty options and a few other alluring items.
The best part of Infiniti’s CPO coverage is its warranty. Unfortunately, the warranty terms are also something of a drawback, as the coverage can be confusing — so we’ll break it down for you.
If you buy a certified pre-owned Infiniti with less than 15,000 miles on the odometer, you’ll get a CPO bumper-to-bumper limited warranty that lasts for 6 years and/or 75,000 miles from the original sale date. Choose one with over 15,000 miles, and the coverage expands to 6 years/unlimited miles from the original sale date. Finally, if the original factory warranty has already expired on the certified pre-owned Infiniti you buy, you’ll be covered for 2 years and unlimited miles from the date you buy it, regardless of the original sale date.
Indeed, it’s a little confusing — but the warranty coverage is pretty good compared to rival programs. Also, Infiniti’s CPO program is now fully transferable to subsequent owners, which will improve your resale value if you decide to sell your Infiniti before the warranty expires. And, we like the fact that Infiniti offers complimentary basic maintenance for the first year of ownership. Other perks include 24/7 roadside assistance, free courtesy car during covered repairs and trip-interruption benefits when a repair is needed more than 100 miles from home.
Although we haven’t always recommended Infiniti’s CPO program, improvements to the warranty (which formerly only covered the powertrain) and new full transferability have changed our minds. We now think the program is worth extra money over a standard used car, especially considering the additional peace-of-mind it provides drivers who may be uneasy about buying a used vehicle.
