U.S. News & World Report announced its inaugural Best Certified Pre-Owned Program winner on Tuesday, recognizing the automaker that best provides peace-of-mind for CPO buyers.
Winning the award in its debut year is Lexus.
In a news release, U.S. News pointed to Lexus’ lengthy CPO warranty (which includes up to two years of coverage with no mileage limit or deductible), strong certified pre-owned benefits and its used-dependability as primary reasons the brand won.
Other CPO benefits include free roadside assistance and a free loaner car. Additionally, Lexus CPO owners can utilize four complimentary factory maintenance service visits, so long as they use them within the first two years/20,000 miles of owning the car.
“The certified pre-owned program from Lexus gives consumers confidence across the board,” said Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars, in a news release. “The warranty coverage and program perks are excellent, and Lexus' record of dependability means that consumers may never need to use it.”
