Scion Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

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

In order to qualify as a Certified Pre-Owned car, Scion vehicles must be under ten years old, have fewer than 85,000 miles, and have a clean Vehicle History Report.

Inspection

In order to ensure that all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are safe to drive, Scion subjects all CPO vehicles to a 160-point inspection that includes the following vehicle areas or systems:

  • Audio and Alarm Systems
  • Steering System
  • Battery System
  • Lighting System
  • Braking System
  • Interior Inspection and Detailing
  • Emission Inspection
  • Electrical System
  • Engine Compartment
  • HVAC System
  • Exterior Inspection and Detailing
  • Frame Inspection
  • Tire and Suspension System
  • Transmission
  • Trunk Compartment

Warranty

Scion CPO vehicles come with two different types of limited warranties. The first is a limited comprehensive warranty that begins on the date of the CPO vehicle purchase, which covers your entire vehicle for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever occurs first. This is in addition to a Powertrain Limited Warranty, which begins on the date that the vehicle was first sold for use, and covers major engine and drive components for seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

This warranty includes one year of roadside assistance that includes the following services:

  • Flat tire change
  • Lockout service
  • Jump starts
  • Towing reimbursement
  • Fuel delivery

Pricing

Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Scion vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a difference in the price at most dealerships. The bottom line will usually be around 7.5% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.

For example, at the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2012 Scion iQ has a Kelley Blue Book value of $8,727; the same vehicle in the Scion CPO program is priced around $9,389.

Compare Scion 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.
