What Are Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles?

Did you know more used cars are bought and sold than new cars every year? Still, despite their popularity, used cars can sometimes get a bad rap. If you’ve ever been surprised by hidden damages, you might be understandably cautious about picking up another ride that’s been previously-loved. That’s where Certified Pre-Owned programs come in. What are Certified Pre-Owned (or CPO) vehicles, though?

Requirements and Standards

When you buy a car through a CPO program, you’re purchasing a vehicle that meets specific requirements. Usually, the car has to be under a certain age and mileage and must qualify for the program by meeting the standards of a long, rigorous mechanical and cosmetic inspection.

Warranties

To offer extra reassurances, used cars purchased through a CPO program come with the backing of several warranties. Often, manufacturers will offer to cover anything that needs to be repaired within a short time of the initial purchase, and many powertrain warranties on CPO vehicles last several years.

Benefits

In addition to warranties, you’re likely to get some additional perks when you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle. 24/7 roadside assistance is pretty common, as is the car itself coming with a free Vehicle History Report and the option of dealership maintenance plans.
