What Makes a Pre-Owned Vehicle Certified?

Everyone knows what a pre-owned vehicle is; it's in the name. However, not everyone knows what a certified pre-owned vehicle is. What makes it certified? Who does the certifying? How is a CPO vehicle different from a standard pre-owned vehicle?

CPO vehicles are pre-owned vehicles that are held to a high standard. While any vehicle can be pre-owned, not every vehicle can be CPO. The exact CPO process varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but they all have a few things in common. In order to be CPO, a vehicle needs to be under a certain age, and needs to have under a certain number of miles on the odometer. If it fulfills those criteria, it then undergoes a rigorous inspection process by a factory-trained technician. Everything needs to live up to the manufacturer's high standards. CPO vehicles also come with a full vehicle history report, so you always know exactly what you're getting into.

If that sounds good to you, we're proud to offer our wide selection of CPO vehicles. At Vaden Used Cars, we know we have just the CPO vehicle for you on our lot.
