About Certified Used Cars

Shopping for a pre-owned car, truck, minivan, or SUV can feel overwhelming. You don’t always know what you’re going to get or if something is going to go wrong with the car as soon as you drive it home. One way to alleviate the stress of buying a preowned car is choosing a Certified Pre-Owned model. The CPO program only includes vehicles that meet high standards set by the automotive company, which means you can drive a certified used car with confidence. CPO vehicles also come with special benefits.

In order to qualify as a CPO model, the vehicle must be six years old or newer and have fewer than 80,000 miles. Certified used vehicles also go through an extensive 100+-point inspection, which includes a full checkup of the powertrain/chassis, body frame, exterior, interior, and additional details. Trained mechanics perform all inspections on CPO models.
