About CPO Warranties

Most CPO warranties are comprehensive and include additional services or perks outside the normal maintenance and repair coverage. You can expect coverage on most CPO warranty terms to vary from as short as three months to as long as six or seven years, depending on the brand. What's more, a variety of manufacturers offer additional services, including 24-hour roadside assistance and loaner vehicles when your vehicle is being repaired, as well as trip interruption or travel expense reimbursement should something happen to your vehicle while you're out of town (including hotel, food and transportation reimbursement). These are just some of the characteristics that make CPO warranty packages attractive to consumers. Following are several examples.
