Acura Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program Named 2020 IntelliChoice Best Premium Brand Warranty
Significantly enhanced in 2019, the Acura Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Vehicle Program has been named Best Premium Brand Certified Pre-Owned Program Warranty by IntelliChoice. Earlier this year, Acura introduced major upgrades to its CPO program, including an extended limited warranty that doubles the non-powertrain coverage period, plus additional benefits for owners such as a new and complimentary first scheduled maintenance1 – which includes oil and filter, tire rotation, air intake filter, cabin air filter, rear differential fluid, and brake fluid change – and a three-month AcuraLink® trial subscription.
The IntelliChoice award marks the first time Acura has secured a best warranty award for its premium CPO vehicles. IntelliChoice also lauded the Acura CPO program warranty for its non-powertrain limited warranty 72 months/100,000 miles2 comprehensive coverage from the original in-service date. For vehicles outside the new car warranty period, the coverage is 24 months/100,000 miles, with the powertrain coverage at 84 months/100,000 miles2 from the original in-service date.
In assessing its Certified Pre-Owned awards, IntelliChoice – the automotive research and data analytics firm and MotorTrend Group subsidiary – considered nine elements of auto manufacturers’ CPO programs, including extended manufacturer warranties, certified inspection process, roadside assistance, title verification, special financing, return and exchange policies, dealer compliance, market penetration, and used cost of ownership.3 Full information on the accolade can be found at https://www.motortrend.com/news/cadillac-kia-top-2020-intellichoice-certified-pre-owned-car-awards/.
