What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

We all know that vehicles can come new and Certified Pre-Owned, but what does certified pre-owned mean? When you buy a certified pre-owned model at Bettenhausen CDJR or anywhere else, you are getting a vehicle that sits comfortably in-between a typical used model and a new one. These vehicles are awarded the CPO designation because they are newer pre-owned models that also have to pass a multi-point inspection and be in overall great condition. Learn more about CPO meaning, then take a look at our available models and find one you like. Once you do, come to our Tinley Park dealership, located near Orland Park and Mokena!

CPO Qualifications

In order for a vehicle to be included in a dealership’s CPO program, it’s held to at least these strict criteria:

  • The model must undergo a multi-point inspection for quality
  • Each model must have a lower amount of miles (typically under 80,000-100,000 miles)
  • Each model must be a newer model year (typically within the last five years)

Certified pre-owned models may also come with special warranties that will have you feeling even better about your purchase.

Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned Cars

Why would you want to buy CPO instead of used? Certified pre-owned models are perfect for car buyers who don’t want to break the bank for a new vehicle, but desire the technology, amenities, and reliability of a recent model. Here are some additional benefits that come with buying a certified pre-owned vehicle:

  • Like we noted above, CPO cars should come with a comprehensive warranty package to protect your investment.
  • You can buy with confidence knowing that your vehicle has been inspected from top to bottom by a certified expert.
  • Your purchase will be less than that of a new model, saving you a lot of money in the process.
