What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

2019 Chevrolet Malibu

There are a lot of options when purchasing a pre-owned vehicle for your Winter Haven commute. Purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle means that the pre-owned vehicle was thoroughly inspected and reconditioned to factory specifications. The CPO meaning can change based on each manufacturer’s standards. Here at Chevrolet Center, we offer “Our Pledge” Powertrain Warranty on most of our pre-owned vehicles so you can have confidence in your purchase. Learn more about CPO models and how they differ from used vehicles below!

What Makes a Vehicle Certified Pre-Owned?

What does certified pre-owned mean? CPO means the pre-owned vehicle has been certified by the manufacturer. For Chevrolet, there are specific qualifications that the pre-owned vehicle has to meet. These qualifications include:

  • Inspection – certified pre-owned vehicles are inspected and reconditioned to factory specifications. If there was an issue found, it has been fixed and addressed.
  • Mileage – CPO vehicles will have lower mileage and can not exceed 75,000 miles.
  • Clean Title – CPO means your vehicle has a clean title. This vehicle must also pass a Vehicle History Report with a free CARFAX included.

In short, “certified pre-owned” means that a pre-owned vehicle has been vouched by the manufacturer itself. Get in touch with our team if you have further questions about the CPO meaning!

Now that we know what certified pre-owned means, let’s take a look at some benefits of a CPO vehicle.
