Best CPO Program: L Certified by Lexus

For the second consecutive year, L Certified by Lexus is the Best CPO Program. No other CPO program offers the kind of protection and perks that Lexus’ CPO program offers.

What’s Included: Lexus distinguishes itself with excellent warranty coverage for up to eight years from when the car was new, or mileage of up to 100,000. The L Certified by Lexus program gives you perks like 24-hour roadside assistance, a free loaner car, and trip interruption coverage, which will cover meals and lodging for you for up to three days if your car breaks down while you’re away from home. Once you purchase a CPO Lexus, you also get free maintenance for two years or 20,000 miles from the CPO purchase date. In fact, the only perk Lexus doesn’t offer in its CPO program is a transferable warranty – the vehicle warranty cannot be transferred to another owner. That said, with these kinds of protections, you’re probably not going to want to sell your CPO Lexus for quite some time.

Reliability: While all of those protections are great, what clinched the Best CPO program award for Lexus is the fact that you may never need to use them. As a brand, Lexus has one of the highest dependability ratings in the industry, earning a score of five out of five from J.D. Power.

Eligibility: Pre-owned Lexus models that are six years old or younger and have 70,000 miles or fewer are eligible for the Lexus CPO program.

CPO Deals: Some Lexus CPO deals include interest rates as low as 0.9 percent.
