What Are Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles?

by Ronald Montoya, June 29, 2022

A certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle, or a "certified used car" as it is also called, is a late-model used car that has gone through a thorough inspection and reconditioning and has been given a factory-backed limited warranty. Franchised dealerships sell CPO vehicles to meet two common goals of used-car shoppers: They want a fully vetted car with warranty coverage, but they also want to pay less than a new car would cost. CPO cars remove the uncertainty about the mechanical condition of the vehicle and present a warranty-covered alternative to a higher-priced new car.
