A certified pre-owned vehicle is one that has been lightly used, thoroughly inspected and reconditioned to its factory standards and then covered by an extended warranty. Keep in mind that this warranty isn’t the same as a new car’s factory “bumper-to-bumper” coverage. You can get an optional warranty package to get that type of coverage. Certified Pre-owned (CPO) vehicles also come with additional benefits, which may include roadside assistance, free maintenance, satellite radio subscription and trip interruption coverage, depending on the program. These benefits may be part of your car purchase — so you don’t necessarily need to buy them separately. You can also find CPO vehicles at low finance rates, offered as promotions that wouldn’t be available in a traditional used-car deal.
The importance of the “Certified Pre-owned” phrase
Some car dealerships put the “certified” label on used vehicles after they’ve put them through a basic inspection or reconditioning. These cars are not actual CPO vehicles. They have not met the manufacturer’s criteria for inspection, nor do they come with a factory extended warranty. Additionally, only a genuine CPO vehicle can qualify for the additional perks of a CPO program.
Certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles are some of the most highly coveted used cars on the market. They’ve been thoroughly inspected, are only a few years old, have low miles and are equipped with a more comprehensive warranty coverage.
Yes, you can purchase a CPO-like used car and add the extended warranty. That might seem like a logical alternative to real CPO vehicle, but it can be a complicated process, and it might not actually save you money.
First, the condition of the non-CPO used car will not be equal to that of the CPO vehicle. There is something about that used car that kept it out of the CPO program. It may have been too old or had too many miles. Maybe it had body dings that disqualified it. Plus, it will not have received the same degree of mechanical inspection and reconditioning as a true CPO car. In other words, if a CPO car is a “B+,” the non-CPO vehicle might only be a “C.”
