What Is Certified Pre-Owned?

When you think of car buying, the two options that likely come to mind are new and pre-owned. CPO vehicles are that middle ground between these options.

Like pre-owned vehicles, CPO cars have previously been owned and driven by at least one other driver. Although, while they’re technically pre-owned, they’re in such good condition, they could almost be considered new cars.

That’s because CPO vehicles must undergo a rigorous inspection before being considered certified. Each vehicle must pass both an appearance and mechanical inspection, meaning it has to look its best and run perfectly before passing.

Only vehicles that meet these strict criteria can wear the CPO badge. Others will have to undergo necessary maintenance before they can pass the inspection and be considered a CPO vehicle.
