Maserati Finally Announces North American CPO Program
Maserati has finally announced this month that aspiring Maserati owners in North America have for the first time the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their dream car via the Officine Maserati Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program.
That’s right: while you could, in the past, buy a used Maserati from a dealership or a previous owner, you couldn’t buy one from a dealership that had been certified pre-owned, which represents a certain standard of quality backed by the manufacturer itself.
In the context of Maserati, this means that any CPO Ghibli, Quattroporte or Levante you buy will have first gone through a 120-point inspection by factory-trained technicians. What’s more, only the best used models will be selected for the program in the first place. Maserati says it must “be in accordance with factory standards for condition and service compliance” and that the car must be either less than four years old or have under 50,000 miles on the odometer.

But that’s just par for the course for most CPO program. The real benefit is this: the warranty is extended to six years and unlimited miles, and that covers the engine, transmission, suspension, steering, differential, driveshaft, electrical components, climate control system, brake system, cooling system, and fuel system. That’s right—you can buy a used Maserati with an unlimited mile warranty.
Because the program is still relatively new, there aren’t many CPO vehicles available just yet, as dealerships are still working on selecting specific cars that would qualify for the program. Check back in a year, though, and you may just find the Maserati you’ve always wanted at a much more affordable price.
