How Are Used Cars Certified?

2019 Mazda CX-3 Crossover

Certified pre-owned vehicles are late-model used cars with low mileage and no record of significant damage. Essentially, they’re the cream of the used car crop, and they usually come with several tempting incentives, including:

  • Vehicle History Report
  • Complimentary Satellite Radio
  • Manufacturer-Backed Warranty
  • Complimentary Roadside Assistance

How Do Cars Become Certified?

All manufacturer CPO programs are a little different, but they basically go like this:

  • Initial Selection: To qualify for the CPO program, a vehicle will need to be less than a certain number of years old and have fewer than a certain number of miles on the odometer.
  • Inspection: An extensive multi-point inspection will ensure the vehicle is up to spec. Any worn parts will be switched out for a new OEM alternative.
  • Extras Added: As an added incentive, CPO models will be provided with anything from travel reimbursement protection to covered repairs.

The Mazda CPO Process

For a used Mazda to gain CPO status, it needs to go through a rigorous 160-point inspection. Everything from engine to air conditioning is scrutinized and tested to ensure it meets the highest standards. Your peace of mind is further assured through:

  • 12-Month/12,000-Mile CPO Vehicle Limited Warranty
  • 7-Year/100,000-Mile Limited Powertrain Warranty
  • Zero Deductible on Covered Repairs

Mazda Certified Pre-Owned Limited Vehicle and Limited Powertrain warranties are transferable to future owners at no cost, so your Mazda CPO will hold its value when you come to sell. And if you do break down at any point in the future, 24-hour emergency roadside assistance will be available to provide a hand. Whether stuck between Plano and Allen or broken down in Dallas, you’ll get the assistance you need. You’ll even get a free Autocheck® Vehicle History Report and complimentary 3-month SiriusXM® satellite radio trial. If you need to take coverage further, feel free to take advantage of Mazda Prepaid Maintenance and Extended Confidence plans.
