Overview

Scion's certified pre-owned program is much like the CPO plan offered by its parent brand, Toyota. It offers 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date, along with a 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. Finally, Scion's program also includes a $50 deductible per repair visit, full transferability to the next owner and occasional special financing rates.

What We Like

Full transferability; long powertrain warranty; special financing rates

What We Don't

$50 deductible; average bumper-to-bumper coverage

Program Specifics

Although Scion and parent brand Toyota have a good reputation for reliability, you may still want to consider Scion's certified pre-owned program if you're searching for a used model. The program offers a long warranty and additional peace of mind -- not to mention occasional special financing rates that help make the brand's CPO vehicles more appealing.

The most important component of Scion's certified pre-owned program is the powertrain warranty, which covers its cars for up to 7 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date. That's an increase of 2 years and 40,000 miles over the original 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty and is one of the top powertrain warranties in the certified pre-owned world.

Scion's CPO program also includes a 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which begins when the original factory bumper-to-bumper warranty ends. If the factory warranty has already expired when you buy the car, then Scion's bumper-to-bumper CPO coverage instead starts on your purchase date.

Our only real complaint about Scion's certified pre-owned warranty program is its $50 deductible -- especially considering that some rival automakers, such as Honda and Chevrolet, have no deductible at all. Still, it's cheaper than the deductible rates charged by brands such as Dodge and Ford. Plus, we like the fact that the warranty is fully transferable should you go to sell your car before the CPO warranty has expired.

If you're searching for a used Scion, the brand's CPO warranty is very much worth considering, especially if Scion is offering an attractive incentive for shoppers interested in buying a certified pre-owned vehicle.
