Why Should I Buy a Hyundai CPO Vehicle? (& Other FAQs)

Buyers have gotten wise to the money-saving benefits inherent in certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles. Layers of CPO perks, like low out-of-pocket costs and add-on packages, can be peeled back to reveal a vehicle that’s worth more than its sticker price. And proudly leading the perk-packed pack is none other than Hyundai, with its incredible certified pre-owned program and warranties adding up to over $2,000 in savings.


If you’re searching for an affordable used car in the Kansas City area, a certified Hyundai makes the most sense. Read on to discover how the Hyundai CPO program compares to its competitors, then browse our inventory of certified cars for sale at McCarthy Blue Springs Hyundai.

What is a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

A CPO vehicle is any late-model car, truck, SUV, or van that meets a specific set of manufacturer standards. For a vehicle to be backed fully by Hyundai Motor America, it must:

  • be less than five years old;
  • have fewer than 60,000 odometer miles;
  • pass a comprehensive 150-point assurance inspection;
  • come with a clean CARFAX® Vehicle History Report;
  • and have genuine Hyundai parts.

All Hyundai vehicles meeting or exceeding these standards can be given the title of “certified pre-owned,” meaning owners can feel confident in their like-new condition and quality.

What’s Included with a Hyundai CPO Vehicle?

When you buy a new Hyundai, you’re given the “Hyundai Assurance” that the vehicle should exceed all your expectations throughout the course of its warranty. Likewise, a CPO Hyundai ensures that you won’t have to worry about its past or future. Such comfort comes in the following forms:

  • Original 5-year/60,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty
  • Transferrable 10-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty (covers major engine, transmission, and drivetrain problems)
  • Comprehensive 150-point inspection (includes a thorough test drive and inspection of the exterior, interior, mechanical components, and wheels)
  • 10-year/Unlimited Mileage Roadside Assistance (24/7/365 service available by calling 1-800-243-7766)
  • First-day Rental Car Coverage (covers up to $35 per day, for up to ten days)
  • Trip Interruption Reimbursement (covers up to 150 miles away from home)
  • 3 months of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio “All-Access” Trial
  • Free CARFAX® report


Necessary repairs made while covered under the warranties cost just $50 out of your pocket as a deductible.

How Does Hyundai’s CPO Coverage Compare?

Not all certified pre-owned programs are built the same, even if they’re packaged similarly. In addition to offering a 10-year Limited Powertrain Warranty that’s far better than the standard 7-year guarantee, here are a few other ways that Hyundai’s CPO coverage compares to other leading manufacturer’s.

Ford vs. Hyundai

  • A Ford CPO must have less than 80,000 odometer miles, compared to Hyundai’s requisite 60,000 miles.
  • A Ford CPO comes with a $100/visit deductible, compared to Hyundai’s $50/visit cost.

Toyota vs. Hyundai

  • A Toyota CPO comes with just 1 year of roadside assistance, compared to Hyundai’s unlimited service.
  • A Toyota CPO must be more than 6 years old, compared to the more standard 5 years with Hyundai.
  • A Toyota CPO must have fewer than 85,000 miles, compared to Hyundai’s 60k.
  • Toyota CPO models don’t come with trials of SiriusXM.

Honda vs. Hyundai

  • A Honda CPO must have 80,000 or fewer miles, compared to Hyundai’s 60,000.

Chevrolet vs. Hyundai

  • A Chevy CPO comes with a sub-standard 6-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain warranty, compared to Hyundai’s 10/100,000.
  • A Chevy CPO must have less than 75,000 miles, compared to Hyundai’s 60,000.
  • Chevy CPO models don’t have standard Trip Interruption Reimbursement.

Nissan vs. Hyundai

  • A Nissan CPO must have 80k or fewer miles, compared to Hyundai’s 60,000 miles.
  • Nissan CPO warranties are only transferable with an optional service contract.

Across the board, a certified pre-owned Hyundai comes with better warranty coverage and has fewer miles put on its engine. Talk about getting more bang for your buck.
