IRVINE, Calif., July 17, 2017 – Kia Motors America’s combined Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle sales in April, May and June reached new heights with a best-ever quarterly total of 20,346 units, capping the best six-month CPO result in company history.
Autodata’s1 June CPO retail sales report confirms that when it comes to pre-owned vehicles, Kia continues to outpace the industry with an overall 7.8-percent increase year-over-year.
“Kia is enjoying a terrific year for Certified Pre-owned vehicle sales. Kia has gained market share and is outperforming some of its big-name competitors. As its off-lease vehicles return to the market, Kia is in a strong position to maintain its momentum,” said Michelle Krebs, executive analyst for Cox Automotive’s Autotrader.
Administered by JM&A Group, Kia’s CPO program accepts only Kia vehicles that are five years or newer with fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer and every vehicle undergoes a meticulous 150-point Quality Assurance inspection by certified Kia technicians. CPO vehicles also come with a 10-year /100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty2 and 12-month /12,000 mile-Platinum Coverage3. Whether it’s the midsize Optima sedan, iconic Soul or the Sorento SUV that drivers dream of, customers get a great price matched with superb quality, bypassing the stress, risk and uncertainty that typically comes with buying a previously owned vehicle.
