Many drivers realize that buying a used car is a great financial decision. Not only will you save thousands when compared to the cost of a new car, but you will still get something that will last for years to come. However, not all used cars are created equal. A certified pre-owned (CPO) car offers numerous benefits over a standard used vehicle.

Best Quality

In order to qualify for a CPO program, a used car has to be in top condition. It has to be a recent model year with low mileage and have a clean vehicle history report.

Inspection and Reconditioning

Once a used car meets the initial qualifications of a CPO program, it will go through an extensive inspection and reconditioning process. Depending on the manufacturer, this means between 100 to 200 individual items are checked. If something doesn't pass the stringent requirements, it will be repaired using only genuine OEM parts.


While many late-model used cars still have some of the original factory warranty remaining, a CPO vehicle will often come with additional warranty coverage that goes beyond the original powertrain and new car warranty. This could mean an extra year or two of coverage for extra peace of mind.

Roadside Assistance

Most CPO programs include some type of roadside assistance program that gives you 24-hour assistance whenever you need it. This will usually last as long as the basic warranty coverage. This can help when you need a jump start, if you lock yourself out, or find yourself with a flat tire.

Attractive Financing Offers

While CPO vehicles usually won't get interest rates as low as new cars can, they are often eligible for lower rates than just a standard used car. This can help offset the higher initial cost of purchasing a CPO vehicle.
