Isuzu Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Drivers who have been shopping for a used Isuzu vehicle may have already considered a Certified Pre-Owned, or CPO, vehicle. CPO programs allow owners of used cars to drive with confidence, knowing that their vehicle has been inspected and repaired by professionals before ever hitting the lot. These cars usually come with an extended warranty and other benefits like roadside assistance.

Isuzu does not currently offer a new Certified Pre-Owned car program because it no longer sells vehicles in the United States. While drivers who already owned a CPO Isuzu are still covered by their warranties, it is not possible for a new potential owner to receive these benefits. Read on to learn more about Isuzu.

Company history

Isuzu Motors is a Japanese commercial vehicle manufacturer that is headquartered in Tokyo. In 1972, the company partnered with General Motors to sell vehicles in the United States, until 1981, when they broke into the U.S. market on their own. In 1992, the company began pulling out of the American market, and entered into an exchange program with Honda.

This partnership lasted until 1998, when Isuzu again partnered with General Motors in order to produce diesel engine vehicles. After several years of back and forth hand offs, U.S. dealers could only sell two Isuzu models in 2005. Finally, in 2008, Isuzu announced that it would withdrawal entirely from the U.S. market by 2009, due to a lack of sales. While there was talk of staying in the medium-duty truck market, those projections fell through when a planned production line in Michigan did not come to fruition.

Used Isuzu value.

Buyers who still wish to own an Isuzu vehicle can purchase them used from dealers. At the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2008 Isuzu Ascender is valued between $5,471 and $7,898 on Kelley Blue Book. While used cars haven’t been inspected like a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, or come with the extended warranty offered to CPO vehicles, this is still a valid option for those who wish to drive an Isuzu.

In any case, it's always wise to have an independent certified mechanic inspect any used car before buying it, as 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.
