Why Buy Acura CPO?

Benefits of Buying Certified

When you purchase an Acura Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from Acura of Berlin, you can expect the same uncompromising standards of a brand-new Acura. All vehicles are under six years old with less than 80,000 miles. Our CPO program also provides powertrain coverage for up to 7 years*/100,000* (which ever comes first) total odometer miles and non-powertrain coverage for up to 2 years*/100,000* miles, along with a complimentary first scheduled maintenance. Each vehicle must also pass a 182-point vehicle inspection and is covered by an extensive Roadside Assistance program.

Certification Process

The Acura Dealership technicians give it the once over 182 times.

Every vehicle must pass stringent measures before it can become a Acura Certified Pre-Owned. Only well-maintained, late-model Acura vehicles are considered, and each one must pass a comprehensive 182-point inspection and a Vehicle History Report review. Virtually every mechanical system-from the engine to the door locks-is checked and serviced to meet precise specifications, and a thorough appearance inspection scrutinizes fit and finish-inside and out-to ensure that every vehicle upholds the luxury and sophistication of the Acura name. The Acura Dealership technicians also inspect all placements of the Vehicle Identification Number to ensure that the VIN plates match. In addition, the VIN is researched for open service campaigns.

Each Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a full set of required manuals and documentation. Our inspection checklist ensures each manual is placed in the glove box or provided at delivery.

    • Owner’s Manual
    • New Car Warranty Manual
    • Certified Warranty booklet
    • Vehicle History Report (full history/title check report)
    • Copy of 182-point inspection checklist (once completed)
    • Radio security code
    • Navigation code (if applicable)

Enhanced Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program

Acura today announced significant enhancements to the brand’s award-winning Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Vehicle Program, including an extended Non-Powertrain Limited Warranty that doubles the non-powertrain coverage period. The upgraded Precision Certified Program provides CPO owners additional benefits, including a new, complimentary first scheduled maintenance and a three-month AcuraLink® trial subscription.

Acura’s Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Limited Warranty non-powertrain coverage, which begins after the New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires, has been extended from 12 months or 12,000 additional miles to 24 months or up to 100,000 total odometer miles, whichever occurs first.

Under the enhanced program, Acura CPO owners also will receive a complimentary first scheduled maintenance, which includes oil and filter, tire rotation, air intake filter, cabin air filter, rear differential fluid, and brake fluid change, as well as a complimentary three-month trial of AcuraLinkÒ (www.acuralink.acura.com), Acura’s cloud-based, connected service system. CPO owner benefits include emergency roadside assistance, trip interruption expense reimbursement and concierge service.
