Why Buy Genesis Certified Pre-Owned?
The Genesis brand is new enough that it’s taken ’til now to launch the Genesis Certified Vehicles program. One thing we know for sure: cars that were this great when they came off the assembly line still have plenty of value — and a long life — left. So if you’re wondering whether a pre-owned Genesis model in San Diego or one that’s certified is better, here’s what to look for when you visit Genesis of Kearny Mesa.
Genesis Certified Vehicles
Any car, regardless of its nameplate, is pre-owned if someone owned it before you, and our inventory consists of many other brands besides the Genesis models. Buying pre-owned has its benefits, including a lower up-front cost, and lower costs in the long term for monthly payments and interest.
That said, a Genesis Certified Vehicle isn’t just an ordinary used car. The selection is smaller because we don’t certify any other brand, and not even every Genesis model qualifies, since we have high standards for our certified vehicles.
Each Genesis Certified model must date from 2017 or later. It must also have fewer than 60,000 miles, pass a 191-point inspection that covers its appearance, safety, and the mechanical condition of every major system from bumper to bumper. It must also have a clean CarFax report.
That comes with a higher price tag, but the benefits that come with ownership make it all worthwhile. Your Genesis Certified Genesis G80, for instance, will come with the remainder of its six year / 75,000 mile limited warranty, and the remainder of the 10-year / 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. You also get a rental car allowance, travel reimbursement, ten years of roadside assistance with unlimited miles, and three complimentary years of Genesis Connected Services.
Your Genesis dealer serving San Diego will fill you in on the specifics of the program details beyond what we’ve listed here. When you visit Genesis of Kearny Mesa, you’ll also have access to Genesis financing, parts, service, and much more, because we believe your ownership experience should be as exceptional as our Genesis models — new or not.
