What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

2020 Chevy Equinox on the Road

When you start your search for a used car, you’re bound to wonder, “what does certified pre-owned mean?” The CPO meaning becomes important when you want a like-new vehicle with top technology for your daily commute. CPO vehicles are used models that are backed by manufacturer warranties, a vehicle history report, and a thorough inspection. There are many great certified pre-owned vehicles to be found at Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chevrolet. Learn more about the Chevrolet CPO meaning and qualifications, and how you can take home a model you love.

Chevrolet CPO Program Benefits

While all certified pre-owned models are used, that doesn’t mean all used vehicles fit the CPO qualification. So, what does certified pre-owned mean for the model you’re taking on adventures? Most manufacturers have a certified pre-owned program where there’s a criteria the vehicles have to follow. Let’s take a look at the CPO meaning for the models in Chevy’s program:

  • Model Year: Within 6 model years
  • Miles: Within a maximum of 75,000 vehicle miles
  • Vehicle History Report: Each car must have a clean title and pass a Vehicle History Report.
  • Inspection: Each car must pass a 172-point inspection with flying colors, ensuring buyers are satisfied with their purchase.

Why Buy Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned?

Whether you’re not ready for the financial commitment of a new car, or you want more security when shopping used models, a CPO vehicle is a great middle ground. Shopping CPO models means you also have access to benefits such as:

  • Have peace of mind on streets that your new-to-you vehicle has been thoroughly inspected by a Chevy service technician.
  • Every Chevy CPO vehicle comes backed by warranty coverage, including a 6-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty (whichever comes first, from original in-service date) that includes Roadside Assistance, and a 12-Month/12,000-Mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty.

Comparing Used vs. CPO vs. New Vehicles

As we’ve covered the CPO meaning, your next question may be about the differences between used, CPO, and new vehicles. Let’s take a quick moment to compare the three:

  • Used: You’ll find that used models have lower prices than new and CPO vehicles, as well as a wide variety of makes, models, model years, trims, features, mileage, and more.
  • Certified Pre-Owned: CPO vehicles land between new and used vehicles by offering more protections than your standard used car at a more affordable price than a new car.
  • New: New vehicles offer you the top-of-the line technology and capabilities along with the peace of mind that you’re purchasing a model that has never been owned before.
