Buick Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

If you’re in the market for a used Buick vehicle, you may want to check out cars under their certified pre-owned program. Many manufacturers have a certified pre-owned (CPO) program, and each one is set up differently. Read on to learn about the specifics of the Buick CPO program.

Buick Certified Pre-Owned cars are always under six years old, have less than 75,000 miles, and come complete with a 12 month/12,000 miles Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty.

Inspection

In order to ensure that all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are safe to drive, Buick CPO vehicle must pass a 172-point inspection that includes the following systems:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Drive

Items that are not protected under the warranty include:

  • Tires
  • Damage due to bed liners
  • Damage due to collision, fire, or theft
  • Damage due to misuse of the vehicle
  • Modifications or aftermarket upgrades
  • Damages due to insufficient maintenance
  • Damages due to poor-quality fuel

Warranty

Buick CPO vehicles come with a warranty, which covers repairs bumper-to-bumper for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first, and requires no deductible. Buick also offers an extended Powertrain Limited Warranty, which covers six years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The warranty also offers certain benefits including:

  • A complete vehicle history report including the service record.

  • A 24-hour roadside assistance program that offers emergency services and security services.

  • Reimbursement for rental or courtesy transportation services in the event that your vehicle requires warranty repairs.

For exact details on reimbursement amounts or roadside assistance, see an authorized Buick Certified Pre-Owned dealer.

Pricing

Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Buick vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a difference in the price. The bottom line will usually be around 6% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.

For example, at the time of writing this article in April 2016, a used 2012 Buick LaCrosse Sedan has a Kelley Blue Book value of $16,303; the same vehicle in the Buick CPO program is priced around $17,278.

Compare Buick to Other CPO Programs

Whether you decide to go with a CPO car, it's always wise to have an independent certified mechanic inspect any used car before buying it. Certified Pre-Owned does not mean the car is in perfect condition, and any used car can come with serious issues that aren't apparent to an untrained eye. If you're in the market to buy a used car, schedule a pre-purchase inspection for total peace of mind.
