Why Porsche's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Is Better
Porsche has enjoyed a reputation since 1948 for designing and building the best sports cars in the world. Their efforts to this end are focused and intentional. The engineers and technicians at Porsche work day in and day out, year after year, to make every concept and every model better than the one before—more precise, more elegant, more efficient. The guiding philosophy behind everything Porsche does is to get the most out of everything. The Porsche Principle, as this philosophy is called, drives Porsche to transform performance into speed in the smartest, most intelligent ways imaginable. The Porsche Principle is also the driving force behind the Porsche certified pre-owned warranty program. This industry-leading, comprehensive warranty program helps owners get the most out of every Porsche they drive.
What Is a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car?
Certified pre-owned cars are distinguished from regular used cars because they meet a particular set of standards established by the dealer or the manufacturer. The standards typically include an age requirement, a mileage requirement, and the ability to pass a multi-point inspection. Again, the standards can vary between manufacturer and dealers, with some having stricter standards than others.
Often, CPO vehicles were previously leased rather than owned and, thus, have had regular servicing and are in good condition. Additionally, CPO cars generally come with “perks,” such as extended warranties, special financing, and additional maintenance benefits.
Porsche is generous in the cars that are eligible for its CPO vehicle program. Purchased cars 8 model years and younger that have fewer than 100,000 miles qualify. The quality of Porsche vehicles makes this possible. Beyond this basic eligibility requirement, Porsche only certifies pre-owned cars that can pass a 111-point inspection conducted by factory-trained Porsche technicians. How many other manufacturers have the confidence to certify that an 8-year old car with 100,000 miles on it functions equally as well as a comparable new vehicle? Only Porsche.
Porsche’s CPO Warranty
Beyond the actual quality of the pre-owned car, the value of any CPO program is the warranty. Carmakers certify their approved pre-owned vehicles function as well as new vehicles and they back up that claim with extended warranties and roadside assistance packages. Across the industry, the standard CPO warranty offers one year of basic warranty coverage from the manufacturer, plus some form of additional powertrain warranty that extends beyond the original warranty times and mileage limits. Basic roadside assistance for the duration of the new warranty is also generally part of the warranty package.
As with everything Porsche does, Porsche’s CPO program goes above and beyond industry norms for CPO warranty programs. Many industry experts agree that Porsche’s CPO warranty is one of the best and most comprehensive warranties available. Details of Porsche’s CPO warranty include the following:
- 2-year, unlimited mileage coverage added to the existing factory warranty or from the date of CPO purchase if the factory warranty has expired. This warranty covers the engine, fuel and cooling systems, powertrain and transmission, suspension and steering, brake system, electrical systems, comfort systems, and the body.
- Full transferability of the warranty should you decide to sell the vehicle.
- All repairs can be performed by Porsche technicians at authorized Porsche dealers around the country.
- Only genuine Porsche parts will be used for repairs.
- No deductibles are required; you won’t have any out-of-pocket costs for covered repairs during the warranty period.
- 2-year, unlimited mileage comprehensive roadside assistance for the duration of the warranty. Assistance with batteries, fuel, and keys is just a phone call away. Porsche’s roadside assistance program also includes provisions for extrication services and travel interruption services, should they be required.
