A certified pre-owned car (CPO) is a recent model used vehicle that has passed a multi-point condition and safety inspection as specified by the certifying automaker. As a result of the additional inspection and reconditioning requirements, most CPO vehicles include a certified used car warranty in addition to the remainder of the original manufacturer warranty. Because certified vehicles are more likely to be in a like-new condition and sold by a certified pre-owned dealership, they may cost a few hundred dollars more than similar, non-certified used vehicles.
