What is CPO?

If you've ever been to a car dealership, you have no doubt heard the term "CPO" thrown about. However, you might not know what exactly those three letters stand for. CPO is short for Certified Pre-Owned. However, that just raises further questions. What makes a certified pre-owned car different from a regular one?

CPO is the manufacturer's way of vouching for a vehicle's quality. Different manufacturers have their own CPO plans, but they generally all follow similar rules. In order to qualify for CPO, a vehicle needs to be under a certain amount of years old, and needs to have under a certain number of miles on the odometer. After that, it needs to undergo a rigorous inspection process, which generally covers 100+ points. If any point comes up lacking, it either needs to be repaired or replaced. CPO vehicles also frequently come with extensive warranty plans. Of course, the downside is that since CPO is such a difficult process, the selection of CPO vehicles is often much smaller.
