Are Certified Pre-Owned Cars & Trucks Worth It?

What’s a CPO Vehicle?

A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a used vehicle that features a warranty like a new car. A CPO vehicle could even have a better warranty than when the vehicle was new, in some situations. ​Meanwhile, other dealers may offer cars that they ‘certify’, but it can just be a play on words. Those dealers could do a certification procedure on pre-owned cars, but it’s not quite the same. A true Certified Pre-Owned vehicle goes through a meticulous and rigorous inspection process, gives new car reliability (but without the new car price), and boasts extras like lower financing rates. The singular way to get a Certified Pre-Owned car is at the vehicle manufacturer’s dealership.

Quality is Guaranteed

Guaranteed New-Car-Like Condition

The biggest advantage of purchasing a CPO vehicle is its reliability. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are specifically chosen because they are accident-free, have lower mileage, and are usually nicer than the average used vehicle. Once determined to be a likely CPO candidate, that car will go through a stringent inspection procedure. If the inspection process finds any issues those issues are fixed before the car is certified. Once certified, a car receives an extended warranty to guard against future issues.



Another benefit of purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is you get a car that seems new, drives perfectly, and has a warranty, all without the new-car price tag. Because the new-car depreciation has already taken place, a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is routinely among the best buys in the pre-owned market. While you may be able to get a warranty from a 3rd party on most vehicles, a Certified Pre-Owned warranty is not just more robust but usually more cost-effective.

Additional Advantages

Even More Benefits Included

Purchasing a CPO vehicle has some additional advantages that buyers may not know of. Most CPO cars are eligible for better interest rates and also longer loan term lengths. In the rare event that your CPO vehicle breaks down, courtesy roadside assistance is yet another likely benefit (and there could be a loaner waiting). Prepaid maintenance options, a free trial of satellite radio, and trip insurance are all other upgrades that might be available. For more information, see our Certified Pre-Owned specialists.
