Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Drivers who are shopping around for the perfect used Lincoln 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 Lincoln CPO program.

Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned cars are always under seven years old, have less than 60,000 miles, and come complete with a six years/100,000 miles Comprehensive Limited Warranty.

Inspection

In order to ensure that all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are safe to drive, Lincoln CPO vehicles must pass a rigorous 200-point inspection that includes the following procedures:

  • Vehicle History
  • Vehicle Diagnostics
  • Exterior and Interior Appearance Inspection and Detailing
  • Under-hood Inspection
  • Road Test
  • Hybrid Car Components Inspection
  • Under-body Inspection

Warranty

Lincoln CPO vehicles come with a Comprehensive Limited Warranty that covers the following areas for six years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Drive System
  • Steering Components
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Climate Control
  • Electrical Systems
  • Technology Components
  • Emissions
  • Factory Audio System
  • Safety Features

The warranty also includes additional benefits, such as:

  • A complete vehicle history report including the service record.

  • A 24-hour roadside assistance program that offers emergency services and security services including the following:

    • Towing reimbursement, up to $100
    • Transmission service
    • Flat tire change
    • Emergency fuel delivery, up to two gallons
    • Emergency jump start
    • Lockout assistance, up to $50 per instance
  • Reimbursement for a rental, up to $45 per day for five days.

  • Up to $500 total for three days’ lodging, food, and rental reimbursement if your vehicle breaks down more than 100 miles from your home.

Pricing

Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Lincoln vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a difference in the price. The bottom line will usually be around 14% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.

For example, at the time of writing this article in April 2016, a used 2012 Lincoln MKX has a Kelley Blue Book value of $21,904; the same vehicle in the Lincoln CPO program is priced around $24,913.

Compare Lincoln to Other Certified Pre-Owned Car 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.
