Looking for a used Kia vehicle? It’s understandable for new car buyers or shoppers on a budget to be looking at a used vehicle versus something new, and that’s alright. Here at Miami Lakes Automall, consumers will be happy to know that our used Kia vehicles are certified pre-owned vehicles. Don’t know what that means? Have a little refresh on “What’s Good About Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles” and read on to discuss some of the good news Kia Motors recently announced about their “Certified Pre-Owned” program.
Recently, Kia Motors announced that it will be extending its “Certified Pre-Owned” (CPO) program and Branded Product Program with the JM&A Group for several more years. The JM&A Group is a leader in the automotive finance and insurance industry and has been for more than 40 years, serving over 3,700 automotive dealerships nationwide. JM&A also works with auto brands to ensure that their brand grows and is successful with auto dealers they do business with. Kia Motors is one of their partners due to their high standards for CPO vehicles.
“Offering one of the best CPO warranties in the industry has helped Kia attract new consumers to the brand and we provide our dealers with the best possible F&I products and training in the industry…This allows us to ensure the needs of Kia customers will be met and our relationship with JM&A Group has been an integral part of this program’s success.” – Bill Peffer, vice president, sales operations, Kia Motors America.
According to a press release by Kia Media, the CPO program administered by the JM&A Group only accepts Kia vehicles that are five years old or younger with less than 60,000 miles on the odometer. Moreover, Kia Motors has a 164-point Quality Assurance inspection, or a checklist of items and conditions to be checked before confirming whether it meets the standards for a CPO vehicle – the inspection is conducted by certified Kia technicians for the most accurate survey and analysis of the vehicle. Following the inspection and any required service, if applicable, the CPO program then offers a 10-year /100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and 12-month /12,000 mile-Platinum Coverage* to buyers of CPO vehicles.
By doing all of this, Kia and JM&A are able to put consumers worries to rest about the sometime uncertainties about buying a used car, especially one with a couple thousand miles on it. That’s what the new powertrain warranty is for. After all, Kia Motors has the best car warranties around, next to Mitsubishi Motors.
“We are honored to continue our relationship with Kia and serve as a strategic partner for the growth and success of their dealers…As we enter our second 40 years serving this dynamic and ever-changing industry, we are energized to be continuing with the progressive and forward-thinking Kia team and their outstanding dealers and customers.” – Forrest Heathcott, president, JM&A Group.
