Buying an Acura certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty means you’re getting a great deal on a slightly used, thoroughly-inspected car or SUV. While CPO vehicles are backed by the manufacturer’s inspection standards, accidents can happen on the road.
How do you secure the right extended warranty for total protection on your Acura vehicle? Learn more about your extended warranty options with CARCHEX.
Every vehicle that qualifies for Acura certified pre-owned benefits and warranty coverage is reconditioned, inside and out, in order to make the car feel more new than used. In 2019, Acura increased its coverage terms to compete with some of the best ranking CPO warranties on the market.
In order to qualify for an extended warranty, your Acura must be six years old or younger with less than 80,000 miles, and it must pass a 182-point vehicle inspection.
The Acura CPO warranty covers both powertrain and non-powertrain parts. Powertrain parts, including the engine, transmission and drivetrain, are covered up to seven years or 100,000 miles (from the original in-service date). Non-powertrain parts, which include all major vehicle systems, are covered up to two years after the Acura factory warranty expires or up to 100,000 total miles.
This coverage includes all parts that are defective due to materials or workmanship. Coverage does not include regular wear and tear, standard maintenance items, emission systems and body parts or interiors.
In addition to part coverage, the CPO warranty also includes:
The Acura CPO warranty is transferable from private owner to private owner.
Is a CPO vehicle worth it? In many ways, a CPO vehicle provides reassurance, because it is inspected and major repairs have already been made (and most likely with Genuine Acura Parts). These vehicles also tend to be late-year models, so even though it is a used car, it does not have the same mileage or wear and tear as a much older car.
However, with these pros come several cons. Because you are buying a CPO vehicle that has been inspected and repaired, you are also buying a more expensive used vehicle. Depending on the vehicle and the price you pay, a third-party extended warranty could actually be cheaper overall.
In addition, a CPO vehicle is not a guarantee that you will never need major repairs. Repairs may be less likely, but not every possible repair is made in order to certify a vehicle.
Finally, you should consider the length of the CPO warranty. Can you find a third-party extended warranty that lasts longer than the Acura CPO warranty? If so, it may be time to consider an extended warranty.
You always want reliability from your vehicle, and the reliability of Acura cars has been questioned. Acura’s reliability score has dropped nine spots from previous years, which puts it with Alfa Romeo and Cadillac for the least reliable cars.
Acura owners report several common problems, including sensor failures, transmission issues and rattling noises from the engine during cold starts. While an Acura CPO warranty may cover these issues, your vehicle may not meet its strict mileage or vehicle inspection standards. That’s where a third-party, extended warranty can provide relief.
If you want extended coverage for major systems, you can buy this protection for your Acura CPO with a CARCHEX Extended Vehicle Protection Plan.
Once the Acura CPO warranty quota is about to expire, a new warranty should be purchased. You can find extended warranty plans through third-party companies like CARCHEX.
Extended warranties aren’t the same as comprehensive or CPO coverage, so getting an extended warranty for your Acura can ensure that you get assistance when you really need it.
With confidence, you can avoid costly repairs and keep your Acura running for many years.
