If you’ve ever shopped for a used car, you’ve probably heard the term “CPO vehicle.” CPO stands for Certified Pre-Owned, which is a special category of used car that goes through a series of tests and meets certain qualifications to be considered “certified” by the dealership.
Every vehicle brand has its own rules, but in general, to be considered certified, a vehicle has to pass a rigorous inspection to guarantee it’s in good shape, be about six model years old or newer, have driven less than a certain number of miles, and have a clean vehicle history report.
The report means that the car doesn’t have any serious mechanical issues, obvious cosmetic defects, or significant crashes in its history.
Buying a CPO vehicle is a little more expensive than buying a regular used car, but it comes with plenty of benefits, in addition to peace of mind. CPO programs usually offer exclusive warranties you wouldn’t get buying an uncertified used car, and you can even qualify for a special low-interest rate on your loan.
Many CPO programs feature other benefits like emergency roadside assistance, travel reimbursement, and other assistance in the event that you’re in an accident or need repairs or maintenance done on your vehicle.
