What Does Audi CPO Mean?

Systems are exhaustively checked, electrical components, mechanical components, and body structure are meticulously inspected, and several road tests are conducted. You also enjoy added warranty coverage and other perks. These vehicles give you many of the benefits of a new vehicle, with the lower price tag of a pre-owned model.

Audi CPO Benefits

All of the Certified Pre-Owned Audi vehicles at our Chicago auto dealership are held to high standards and come backed by CPO benefits like: 

  • Our Audi Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty features coverage for 2-years or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first). The Audi Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty coverage commencement is dependent on whether any Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty coverage remains at time of purchase.
