What Makes a Car Certified Pre-Owned?

While used and certified pre-owned cars have both had previous owners, a CPO vehicle delivers a higher level of quality than your typical used car. This is thanks, in no small part, to the thorough multi-point inspection vehicles have to pass before they can be "certified." This inspection is designed to guarantee that a vehicle has low-mileage and a like-new condition. A certified pre-owned car can provide drivers with a nearly-new experience that costs less.

The Value of Something "Used"

A used car, comparatively, costs less than something from the CPO market, but also comes with fewer guarantees. The condition of a used car can vary, and many will often come with more wear-and-tear than you might find in a certified model. If you're a driver that needs a car with a lower price tag, a used model might be just what you need.
