If you're thinking of purchasing a used vehicle, you'll also need to decide between a traditional used and a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle.

Why do Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles cost more 

than traditional used vehicles ?


Scheduled Maintenance

Acura Roadside Assistance


• Stringent manufacturer mandated requirements to qualify as Acura Precision Certified, including: Less than 6 years old, less than 80,000 miles, accident free, must pass 182- point inspection.

• Vehicles are refurbished to meet Acura’s criteria for Certified Vehicles.


• Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with warranties backed by the manufacturer. Traditional used cars rarely have warranties, and if they do, it will be issued through the dealer or a third party.

• Certified Pre-Owned vehicles can redeem the benefits of their warranty at any authorized dealer, not just the dealer they purchased from. This is ideal if you travel or move.

• Can include extra technology, safety, and service perks from the manufacturer in the purchase price.


• Since the manufacturer has such extensive requirements for a vehicle to be certified, the manufacturer can offer very appealing financing (auto loan) options on CPOs that most used cars are not eligible for.

• Certified Pre-Owned vehicles may be found with financing incentives (low APR’s, flexible loan lengths) similar to those found on new car deals.

• Acura Precision Certified Vehicles have no deductible on warranty related service visits.
