10. GMC Sierra 1500: 2.1 Percent
This mid-level luxury pickup from GMC typically sells for $646 more than a non-CPO Sierra of the same age and equipment, representing a 2.1 percent increase. That extra cash gives you a 1-year / 12,000-mile comprehensive warranty over and above anything remaining on the factory warranty, with no deductible for repairs. Powertrain coverage also stretches for 6 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
9. Jeep Grand Cherokee: 2.1 Percent
The first of two Jeeps on this list, a certified pre-owned Grand Cherokee typically commands an extra $560. Like the GMC Sierra, that represents a 2.1 percent increase over non-CPO models but the comprehensive warranty isn’t nearly as lucrative at 3 months or 3,000 miles. It also requires a $100 deductible for claims made under the warranty.
8. Honda Civic: 2.0 Percent
Hondas are known for having strong resales values, which is why no less than four models are on this list. The Civic takes the seventh spot in this top-ten countdown percentage-wise at 2.0 percent, though with a price difference of only $291 over non-CPO counterparts, it actually commands the lowest extra dollar amount of all other vehicles here. It’s a good deal too, as Honda offers a 1-year / 12,000-mile comprehensive warranty and a 7-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, all with no deductible.
7. Honda Accord: 1.9 Percent
Right on the heels of the Civic is its bigger brother at 1.9 percent. The Accord’s higher average sales price means the actual out-of-pocket amount is a bit higher, however, at $322. Still, that seems like a small premium to pay for the same 7-year / 100,000-mile powertrain coverage and 1-year / 12,000-mile comprehensive warranty with no deductible.
6. Chevrolet Silverado 1500: 1.9 Percent
The Silverado’s CPO premium of 1.9 percent compared to its GMC Sierra stablemate is indicative of the price difference between the trucks. In this case, the Silverado is also the better used-car value with an actual-dollar increase of $529, which is over $100 less than the Sierra while offering the same 1-year / 12,000-mile comprehensive warranty and 6-year / 100,000-mile powertrain coverage.
5. Chevrolet Tahoe: 1.8 Percent
The final General Motors offering on this list is the full-size Tahoe SUV with a 1.8 percent premium over similarly equipped non-CPO models. The big people mover isn’t cheap, however, which translates to the highest actual dollar increase on this list at $707. As with the Silverado and Sierra pickups, the Tahoe gets a 1-year / 12,000-mile comprehensive warranty and a 6-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
4. Honda Odyssey: 1.8 Percent
The minivan is still alive, and the Odyssey shows its value by claiming the fourth spot on this list with a 1.8 percent premium. In this case, that translates to a $420 increase from non-CPO models, and it gets the same outstanding warranty support as the Civic and Accord.
3. Honda CR-V: 1.7 Percent
The final Honda on the list is the popular CR-V SUV, edging out the Odyssey at 1.7 percent but its actual-dollar increase of $339 is one of the lowest in the group. Like all Honda vehicles, a CPO CR-V receives a 7-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty with comprehensive coverage of 1-year / 12,000 miles without any deductible.
2. Nissan Rogue: 1.7 Percent
The quirky crossover from Nissan claims the runner-up spot with a premium of 1.7 percent. It’s also runner-up to the Honda Civic for having the smallest price increase at just $302. There is a downside, however – Nissan’s CPO program only offers extended powertrain coverage of 7 years or 100,000 miles. No comprehensive warranty is available.
1. Jeep Wrangler: 1.6 Percent
The best certified pre-owned vehicle according to iSeeCars is the Jeep Wrangler. On average, the popular off-roader with factory-backed approval is only 1.6 percent more expensive than non-CPO models. That translates to an actual cost of $523, which is a testament to the strong resale of the Wrangler. It also reflects the lesser coverage compared to GM and Honda models, with Jeep offering only 3 months or 3,000 miles of comprehensive coverage along with a 7-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty – all of which is subject to a $100 co-pay for each repair.
