Acura Certified Pre-Owned Program vs. Audi Certified Pre-Owned Program


A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a smart way to purchase a like-new car for the price of a used model, but not all CPO programs are created equal. Acura’s is known as one of the most generous in the industry, both in terms of warranty coverage and perks. Audi’s program is also strong, but it drops the ball in a few key ways—let’s take a look.

The Warranty Coverage

Audi’s warranty isn’t exactly a slouch, but Acura just gives you more time with the protection of coverage:

  • Audi’s CPO Warranty
    • Remainder of New Vehicle Limited Warranty: 4 years/50,000 miles
    • Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty: 2 years/50,000 miles
    • Total Warranty Coverage From Original In-Service Date: 6 years/100,000 miles
    • Coverage capped at 100,000 total miles
    • $85 deductible
    • $150 fee to transfer the warranty
  • Acura’s CPO Warranty
    • Remainder of Powertrain Limited Warranty: 7 years/100,000 miles
    • Additional Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty: 1 year/12,000 miles
    • Total Basic Warranty Coverage From Original In-Service Date:6 years/62,000 miles
    • Total Warranty Coverage From Original In-Service Date: 7 years/100,000 miles
    • $0 deductible
    • No fee to transfer the warranty

As you can see, even the remainder of Acura’s New Vehicle Coverage goes beyond the combination of Audi’s new and certified coverage—and Acura adds an additional Limited Warranty on top of that!

The Perks

Both the Audi and Acura Certified Pre-Owned programs offer 24/7 Roadside Assistance, so you needn’t be on your own when you’re far afield from the likes of Freehold and Matawan. That said, Acura’s CPO program offers a few perks that Audi doesn’t, including:

  • Emergency Airline Ticketing Assistance: If your Acura breaks down when you’re far from home, Acura can help you arrange a flight back.
  • Urgent Message Relay: Need to send a vital message fast? Acura can communicate up to three urgent messages for you.
  • Shipment of Replacement Items: If you’re away from home and need a personal item such as medications, a passport, or eyeglasses, Acura can help.
