What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

Acura Logo

What can Manhasset car buyers expect when they buy a used car and a certified used car? CPO stands for “certified pre-owned,” meaning that they combine the high quality of a new vehicle without the higher price so that you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Learn more about the benefits of a certified used vehicle, and allows us to walk through the pros and cons of our CPO inventory. 

Acura CPO Vehicles

A certified pre-owned vehicle is a vehicle that has to follow a wide range of criteria before being considered. Not just any vehicle can become a certified pre-owned vehicle, there is a strict list of requirements that the car needs to meet before being shown on the lot such as: 

  • Model Year: Each car must be a newer model year.
  • Miles: Each car must have fewer miles on the odometer. 
  • Vehicle History Report: Each car needs a satisfactory and thorough history and vehicle report, proving that regular maintenance schedules were followed.
  • Inspection: A Acura-certified dealership must perform a multi-point inspection for quality. 

Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned Cars

A CPO vehicle might be a good idea if you do not want to spend money on a brand-new car or want a vehicle that will be a longer investment than a used vehicle. Here are some more benefits that you can enjoy with a CPO vehicle such as: 

  • You can buy confidently knowing that your vehicle has been inspected thoroughly by a certified expert
  • Every CPO car comes with a great warranty package that is deeply comprehensive to protect your investment
  • A CPO warranty can come with an Acura vehicle
