Common Questions about Hyundai CPO Program

John Amato Hyundai Superstore is the #1 Hyundai Certified Preowned Dealer in the State of Wisconsin.  Often when searching for a quality preowned vehicle, customers have several questions.  Here below are a few of the most common questions answered about the Hyundai Certified Preowned Program or (CPO)

What is Hyundai Certified PreOwned (CPO)?

Only Hyundai vehicles that meet our high program standards are eligible to become a Hyundai Certified PreOwned vehicle.  All Hyundai CPO vehicles must be current model year and up to four previous model years old, and have less than 60,000 miles on the odometer. All vehicles must pass a comprehensive 150–point quality assurance inspection and have a non-branded title as verified by a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™.

What is a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ (VHR)? What disqualifying items eliminate a vehicle from earning Hyundai CPO status?

CARFAX® VHRs™ contains information that can impact a consumer’s purchase decision about a used vehicle by providing information such as major structural damage, total loss accident history, or title information. Hyundai’s CPO Program requires participating dealers to generate a CARFAX® VHR™ as a part of the certification process. Any vehicles with the following items are ineligible for inclusion as a Hyundai CPO vehicle.

Damage Brands Total Loss Verified Rollback OEM Buyback
Odometer Brands Structural Damage, Fire Damage, Airbag Deployment Auction Odometer Problem Auction Manufacture Buyback
Buyback Brands Major Damage Indicators, Scrapped, Recycled, etc. Potential Odometer Rollback Currently Stolen

What warranty coverage is included with the purchase of a Hyundai CPO vehicle?

The Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned Powertrain Limited Warranty begins on the manufacturer’s original in-service date and odometer mile zero, and will be in effect from that date for a period of 10 years or 100, 000 miles – whichever comes first1. The warranty covers the repair or replacement of “Covered Components” which fail under normal use due to a defect in materials or workmanship2. Coverage is limited to those components and parts listed under the section “Covered Components” on the CPO Powertrain Limited Warranty Provisions form.

What types of service does Roadside Assistance include?

A 10-year / unlimited mileage roadside assistance plan is included with the purchase of a Hyundai CPO vehicle.  Roadside services include dead battery/jump start, flat tire change, lock-out service, gas delivery, and towing for any warrantable repair. Complimentary Roadside Assistance coverage is 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week and 365 day-a-year and is available by calling 1-800-243-7766.

Is the Hyundai CPO warranty transferable?

Upon the sale of the vehicle (private party-to-private party), the CPO warranty is transferred and coverage is afforded to the new owner for the remainder of the 10-year / 100,000-mile CPO Powertrain Warranty term. The Hyundai Customer Connect Center at 1-800-633-5151 must be contracted to update Hyundai’s ownership records. Upon trade-in or sale of the CPO vehicle to a Hyundai dealer or any entity in the business of selling or leasing motor vehicles, CPO certification and Limited Warranty coverage ends.
