When on the hunt for a used Genesis G70, G80, or G90, you will do well to check out Genesis certified pre-owned (CPO) models. These are the cream of the brand’s used vehicles. Cars qualifying for the CPO program enjoy more extensive warranty protection than a regular used Genesis. Also included in the CPO program are several added-value benefits like 24-hour roadside assistance and rental car reimbursement during covered repairs.
What We Like
Extended warranty coverage, travel-interruption reimbursement
What We Don’t
Deductible of $50 for each covered repair
Genesis doesn’t designate just any of its cars as CPO. According to the brand’s CPO literature, its certified pre-owned vehicles must be in like-new condition. They can be no more than three-years-old with fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer. They are subject to a 191-point inspection by a trained technician. Any component not meeting factory standards is repaired or replaced with factory parts. Finally, these cars must have a clean vehicle history report.
Genesis has one of the stronger warranties among luxury brands. Its new cars come with a 5-year or 60,000-miles limited bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 10-year or 100,000-miles limited powertrain warranty. When any Genesis is sold as used, it only retains what is left of its bumper-to-bumper warranty, and the 10-years or 100,000-miles powertrain coverage caps out at 5 years or 60,000 miles from the original new-car purchase date. The certified pre-owned program increases the bumper-to-bumper coverage to a 6-year or 75,000-miles warranty from the original new-car purchase date. It also reinstates the 10-years or 100,000-miles powertrain coverage. That’s a big boost in warranty coverage.
The advantage of buying CPO doesn’t end with the extra warranty coverage. Genesis sweetens the deal with added perks like 24-hour roadside assistance, a Carfax vehicle history report, a three-month satellite-radio subscription, and three years of complimentary Genesis Connected Services. Connected Services is a smart-phone app providing access to your car’s information. Also included are $50 per day in rental-car reimbursement for up to 10 days and $100 per day for up to five days when at least 150 miles from home. Both of the reimbursement programs are only for covered repairs.
The one notable drawback to the Genesis certified pre-owned program is the $50 deductible required for each covered repair. This isn’t unheard of in the industry but seems to go against the grain for a brand achieving such high marks in every other respect.
