What exactly is CPO’s meaning? Let’s start with the easy answer first.

So, What Exactly Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

In essence, a certified pre-owned vehicle is a used vehicle you can place more trust behind. CPO vehicles are thoroughly inspected and repaired by brand-certified technicians like those in our Service Department to ensure that they have a long and healthy life ahead of them, even though they’re technically used vehicles.

Not just any vehicle can become a certified pre-owned vehicle, though—there’s a few requirements that must be met, such as these:

  • Model Year: The vehicle must be a new enough model year.
  • Miles: Each vehicle must meet a certain amount of miles.
  • Inspection: A certified pre-owned vehicle must meet a number of inspection points.
  • Vehicle History Report: Aside from being in good condition, the vehicle must also have a justifiable service history, well documented, as well.

Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned Cars

If you’re hesitant to dip your toes into the waters of certified pre-owned vehicles, there’s some talking points we should discuss. CPO vehicles are perfect for those looking for the reliability and modern nature of a new vehicle, with much of the savings that come with buying used. Here are some other benefits of a certified pre-owned car: 

  • You’ll know that the vehicle labeled as CPO was thoroughly inspected to perform and hold up to your Concord commutes and more.
  • Certified pre-owned vehicles are often given some type of warranty. Contact our Finance Department for warranty information.
