What's the Difference Between a Used Car and Certified Pre-Owned Car?

One of the biggest misconceptions that drivers have is that "certified pre-owned" is just a fancy way to say "used." The truth is that there's a big difference between the two, the experiences they offer, and the kinds of value they offer to drivers.

Just What Does "Certified Pre-Owned" Mean Anyways?

Like used cars, CPO vehicles have had previous owners. Where the difference lies is with the quality of their driving experience. Generally speaking, a certified pre-owned car will be recent year and has low mileage. CPO vehicles are also run through special inspections aimed at guaranteeing their high quality. These thorough multipoint inspections are designed to maintain strict standards that vehicles have to pass to be certified. When you buy a CPO car, you're getting a vehicle that's almost brand new. It just happens to come with a better price.
