Mitsubishi Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

If you have been shopping for a used Mitsubishi 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 Mitsubishi CPO program.

Mitsubishi Certified Pre-Owned cars are always under five years old, have less than 60,000 miles, and have a clean Vehicle History Report.


In order to ensure that all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are safe to drive, Mitsubishi subjects all CPO vehicles to a 123-point inspection that includes the following vehicle areas or procedures:

  • Road Test
  • Under Hood
  • Under Vehicle
  • Scheduled Maintenance
  • Interior and Exterior
  • Detailing

Any parts that do not meet the standards of the Mitsubishi automotive technicians are replaced or reconditioned until the vehicle can become part of the CPO program.


Mitsubishi CPO vehicles come with a Powertrain Limited Warranty, which covers repairs or replacements of major engine, drive system, and transmission components for 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. This is the same warranty coverage as a brand new Mitsubishi vehicle. It does not require a deductible at service visits.

The warranty also includes certain benefits such as:

  • A complete vehicle history report including the service record.

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

    • Battery Jump Starts
    • Flat Tire Changes
    • Gas Delivery
    • Vehicle Lock-out Services
    • Towing Services

For details on specific reimbursement amounts and procedures, see an authorized Mitsubishi Certified Pre-Owned car dealer.


Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Mitsubishi vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a difference in the price at most dealerships. The bottom line will usually be around 8% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.

For example, at the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse has a Kelley Blue Book value of $12,478; the same vehicle in the Mitsubishi CPO program is priced around $13,521.

Compare Mitsubishi 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.
