What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

couple buys car

A certified pre-owned vehicle must meet the quality standards of the manufacturer’s certified pre-owned program. It is these certification standards, in addition to extended warranty coverage and other exclusive benefits, that make a CPO vehicle a more attractive choice than a used vehicle. Learn more about the advantages of a certified pre-owned car, truck, or SUV, and visit the Allen Samuels Holdings dealership near you to test drive one of our CPO vehicles today!

What are the Certified Pre-Owned Benefits?

Each automaker offers their own individual CPO program, and the benefits vary, but generally, you can expect these benefits to include:

  • Late Model/Low Mileage Vehicle – For most automakers only vehicles that are 4 to 6 years old, and have less than 40,000 to 80,000 miles, are eligible to be certified. This means they’re more likely to have advanced entertainment setups or tire pressure monitoring systems.
  • Multipoint Inspection – A thorough mechanical and appearance inspection must be performed by a factory-certified technician, with any needed reconditioning completed in compliance with the manufacturer’s standards.
  • Vehicle History Report – A free vehicle history report is almost always included, so you find out all there is to know about the vehicle before you buy.
  • Warranty – In addition to the remaining balance of the new car warranty, you’ll receive a limited CPO warranty that often includes bumper-to-bumper and/or powertrain coverage with 0% deductible.
  • Roadside Assistance – 24-hour roadside assistance is usually offered, covering emergency fuel delivery, jump starts, emergency lock-out protection, free loaner vehicle, towing, trip interruption protection, and more.
  • Special Financing – Special CPO financing is available to eligible buyers.
