Audi CPO Warranty FAQs

While we've covered much of what the Audi CPO program includes, it's common for Costa Mesa shoppers to have additional questions. Below, we cover some of our top Audi CPO program and Audi CPO warranty questions: 

What is the Audi CPO Warranty Deductible?

Want to know if Audi certified pre-owned is worth it or if you'll be required to pay a large deductible for service? Good news: Audi CPO Warranty has a $0 deductible. 

What is the Audi CPO Warranty Period?

If there's any portion of the Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which expires at 4 years or 50,000 miles, that will be transferred to you at the time of purchase. Once that warranty expires, the Audi CPO Warranty will take over for an additional 12 months with unlimited mileage. 

Where Do I Go for Audi Certified Pre-Owned Service?

If your Audi certified pre-owned vehicle needs service, you'll be able to seek service at the Audi Fletcher Jones service center, as well as a nationwide network of other authorized Audi service centers.

One Price

The retail business has transformed since many people purchased their last vehicle. It used to be that car buyers would stop at one or two dealerships and pick a pre-owned vehicle, but now many consumers shop thousands of vehicles online before determining which cars they are interested in. We've seen businesses such as Amazon growing at an incredible rate, based on the ease of doing business with them. More and more consumers are enjoying shopping from their couch with more options to choose from.

We felt the need to embrace this new retail strategy in our business. We understand we must make the transaction process much easier. The days of marking the car up to mark them down 10% needed to come to an end. Today our pricing is much more transparent and market based to save you from having to spend hours negotiating. You still get the same incredible Fletcher Jones Certified car, and you can enjoy a much more friendly shopping experience.
