Q: What’s the Different Between CPO and Pre-Owned?

Certified pre-owned (CPO) and used vehicles have a lot in common. They have both spent time on the roads and are ready to have you get behind the wheel once again. However, there are a lot of differences as well.

Though both certified and pre-owned models go through an assessment process at our dealership, CPOs must meet specific requirements to earn this special title. This includes being a newer model year, having limited miles on the odometer, and passing a multi-point inspection by a certified professional.
