Bentley Certified Pre-Owned Program | Kelley Blue Book
If you’re shopping for a pre-owned Bentley, checking out the Bentley Certified Pre-Owned Program (CPO) could pay off big. These are lightly used Bentley models no more than 10-
years. They have been subjected to an intensive inspection by a Bentley-trained technician and have a clean vehicle history report. Once Bentley certified, they are backed by a one-year CPO warranty with no mileage limit. Bentley sweetens the deal with a few value-added perks like 24-hour roadside assistance and special factory-guaranteed financing.
What we like
No mileage limit for the warranty; No deductible for covered repairs
What we don’t do
Limited value added benefits, coverage is not transferable to another person; only 1 year warranty coverage, no satellite radio trial subscription
Specifics of the program
Although the Bentley CPO program offers a limited bumper-to-bumper warranty for 1 year with unlimited kilometers, it accepts Bentley vehicles for up to 10 years. Bentley certification leaves many additional benefits offered by other luxury brands to the whims of dealers. Benefits such as a free loan during covered repairs and free scheduled maintenance are not guaranteed by the factory.
We do like, however, that Bentley models up to 10 years old can be certified. Since Bentley’s CPO warranty has no mileage limit, the mileage accrued during that year of bumper-to-bumper limited warranty coverage does not matter. The tradeoff, however, is that the CPO warranty expires after just 1 year. On the bright side: Bentley does not charge a deductible for covered repairs.
Another benefit that is not universal is the reimbursement of expenses when repairs are made while traveling out of town. Some resellers offer it and others don’t. While it is unlikely that you will sell your Bentley CPO in that first year of ownership, if you do, CPO coverage is not transferable.
Even just one year of warranty coverage could save a lot of money on a multi-year-old Bentley. For this reason, we think it makes sense to consider Bentley Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. Find a certified pre-owned Bentley for sale.
