Although it may seem too good to be true, finding a “like-new” used vehicle is a real option for automotive shoppers in this day and age. Reputed as the best used vehicles available, certified pre-owned vehicles have passed a thorough, multipoint inspection prior to being listed for sale and offer an undeniable set of advantages that average used vehicles can’t match. Most notably, CPO vehicles come at a lower price than their new-vehicle counterparts while still providing a comparable combination of modern amenities and proven reliability.
Beyond taking measures to ensure a vehicle’s sound functionality to instill peace of mind in drivers, CPO programs also typically come with supplemental benefits that make them even more desirable. These might include a factory extended warranty, scheduled maintenance, roadside assistance or a free rental car while your car is being repaired.
The Infiniti Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Program sets a standard for pre-owned vehicles by offering exceptional value and trusted dependability through its superior mechanical protection and service. Here’s an overview of the Infiniti CPO Program inclusions:
- A rigorous 167-point inspection
- A factory-backed warranty with up to six years of unlimited mileage
- Over 1,300 components covered
- Complimentary first-year basic maintenance
- Carfax® Vehicle History Report™ with a three-year Buyback Guarantee™
- Free three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
- Emergency roadside assistance and trip interruption reimbursement
- Complimentary towing to the nearest Infiniti retailer (up to 250 miles)
- Complimentary Infiniti service courtesy vehicle (or maximum reimbursement of $250)
- No deductible for warranty repairs
- Available Infiniti Elite™ Extended Protection Program

You can find more information about the added benefits at Infiniti’s CPO website. For now, we’re going to take a closer look at the program’s two major components: the 167-point inspection and warranty.
The Rigorous 167-Point Inspection
In order to be eligible for consideration within Infiniti’s Certified Pre-Owned Program, an Infiniti vehicle must have mileage under 70,000, a clean title history, a clean Carfax® Vehicle History Report™, show a regular history of maintenance, be fewer than six years from its original in-service date and sold by an authorized Infiniti retailer. Those that qualify then undergo a comprehensive, 167-point inspection by a specially trained technician to ensure proper functionality and long-term dependability for features both inside and out. Here are the major areas it covers:
- Vehicle identification number/service bulletins/recalls/diagnostic trouble codes/maintenance
- Body frame
- Road test
- Body exterior
Check out the Infiniti CPO inspection checklist to learn more about these major categories and the 167 components that undergo testing.
Extensive Warranty Coverage
Infiniti’s CPO program provides qualifying pre-owned Infiniti vehicles with a factory-backed limited warranty for up to six years. The warranty is based on the vehicle’s age and mileage. Infiniti CPO vehicles within their new-vehicle warranty period come protected by either a six-year, 75,000-mile limited warranty or a six-year, unlimited-mileage limited warranty from the vehicle’s original in-service date. Available extended coverage can bump the length up to eight years from the original in-service date. Vehicles outside the new-vehicle warranty period come protected with a two-year, unlimited-mileage limited warranty from the CPO purchase date. The limited warranty covers all major components, including the powertrain, and offers an unlimited number of claims on covered parts.
Should you need any repairs, more than 200 Infiniti retailers across the nation can assist you and provide the Infiniti Total Ownership Experience®, Infiniti’s philosophy and commitment to deliver service to your satisfaction. This means that all authorized Infiniti retailers will service your vehicle using only genuine Infiniti parts or parts approved by trained Infiniti technicians.
