Why Buy Certified Cars?

First, what is a Certified Vehicle (CPO)? CPOs are gently-used vehicles that have passed a series of manufacturer-defined inspection points and meet specific quality guidelines. Only vehicles that meet or exceed the manufacturer’s comprehensive criteria can be certified, which makes CPOs much more reliable than other used cars.

Certified Cars: The Certification Process

Manufacturers define their own Certified Pre-Owned programs and while this makes each program different, all Manufacturer Certified Pre-Owned programs include a thorough inspection of mechanical elements to ensure no defects are present. The certification process also includes an inspection of the vehicle’s frame which assures there has been no major body damage in the vehicle’s lifetime. When a used vehicle becomes a Certified Vehicle, the manufacturer backs it with an extended warranty that begins after the original warranty expires and lasts a specific number of miles or amount of time (whichever comes first).
