So you’re interested in getting a certified pre-owned vehicle. That’s great! There’s a number of benefits to owning a CPO vehicle that make it less of a risk and a better choice than your typical used car. CPO vehicles are guaranteed quality, usually have more recent model years than most used cars for sale, and come with several perks and a warranty that make buying a previously-owned car stress-free. But how, exactly, does a used car become a certified pre-owned vehicle?
Regardless of the company, all CPO vehicles are subjected to a strenuous inspection that involves everything from the external appearance to the mechanical inner workings of the car. Mitsubishi’s CPO program, for example, utilizes a 123-point inspection, in addition to requiring the car to be no older than five years old and to have less than 60,000 miles on the odometer. If a model passes this thorough inspection and repair process, it gets certified and comes with perks like the best warranty in the business, 24-hour Roadside Assistance, a Vehicle History Report, and more.
Owning a certified pre-owned vehicle takes some of the worrying that goes into the car-buying process off your shoulders and puts it on the manufacturer instead.
