Why a Certified Pre-Owned Hyundai?
A certified pre-owned vehicle is exactly what it sounds like: a used vehicle that’s certified to be in top condition by the manufacturer, who will stand behind it with a factory warranty. If that seems like the makings of a good deal, you’re right. There are many advantages to purchasing a Hyundai certified pre-owned (CPO) car, crossover, SUV—and very few downsides. But is a CPO vehicle right for you?
What is the difference between certified pre-owned and used cars? A Hyundai CPO car comes with a complete inspection that repairs any damaged or worn parts before being offered for sale in addition to manufacture. A used car usually only offers the remainder of the factory warranty and only if it’s still in effect and fully transferable.

It Will Save You Money
Buying any pre-owned (a.k.a. “used”) vehicle will always save you money up front compared to purchasing a new vehicle. A lot of money, potentially. But a CPO vehicle isn’t any ordinary used car or SUV; it’s guaranteed to be in top shape, with plenty of life left in it—and it’s backed by a Hyundai factory warranty.
Cost of CPO
CPO cars generally cost more than similar non-CPO models, though there’s no hard-and-fast rule as to how much more. But the difference is, generally, not many thousands of dollars. Remember, you’re paying for the comprehensive dealer inspection, any required repairs or maintenance work, and the security of a much longer warranty than if you simply bought it as a standard used car. And then you have to negotiate the final deal with the dealer, as you would with any new car purchase.
