Mercury Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Drivers who are shopping around for a used Mercury vehicle 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 Mercury CPO program.

Mercury Certified Pre-Owned cars are always under six years old, have less than 80,000 miles, and come with a seven year/100,000 miles Powertrain Limited Warranty.

Inspection

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

  • Vehicle History
  • Road Test
  • Vehicle Diagnostics
  • Under-hood Inspection
  • Hybrid or Electric Vehicle Component Check
  • Under-body Inspection
  • Convenience Maintenance
  • Exterior and Interior Condition and Detailing

Warranty

Mercury CPO vehicles come with a limited warranty, which covers repairs or replacements of major powertrain components for seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. These components are covered by the warranty:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Rear-wheel and Front-wheel Drive
  • Steering Components
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Climate Control
  • Electrical Systems
  • Technology Components
  • Factory-installed Audio System
  • Emissions Components
  • Safety Systems

The warranty also includes certain benefits including:

  • A complete CARFAX vehicle history report including the service record.

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

    • Towing assistance up to $100
    • Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500 for breakdowns more than 100 miles from home
    • Rental car reimbursement up to $30/day for five days
    • Fuel delivery up to two gallons
    • Flat tire change
    • Battery jump start
    • Lockout assistance up to $50

Pricing

Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Mercury vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a difference in the price. The bottom line will usually be around 12.5% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.

For example, at the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2011 Mercury Grand Marquis has a Kelley Blue Book value of $12,899; the same vehicle in the Mercury CPO program is priced around $14,510.

Compare Mercury 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.

Diana went above and beyond for my pre-purchase inspection. She obviously knows her stuff, and she was very upfront and honest about everything. Easily the least aggravating car-related experience I've ever had.
Chevrolet Trailblazer - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Avenel, New Jersey
On time. Extremely informative with tons of pictures. And a repair estimate that I can leverage a lower price for my vehicle with. If I do buy...I will certainly book Diana or any YourMechanic tech for the work recommended.
