Looking to save on your next used car, truck, or SUV but would like to have the security of a warranty? You're looking for a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle! The Casa Auto Group offers CPO vehicles from many of our bands, and one is sure to be the right one for you! Just what is CPO and how does it benefit you? Let's take a look.


The first thing to know about Certified Pre-Owned vehicles is that they have a lot in common, but the exact qualifications will vary depending on the manufacturer. The basics are very simple. A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is one that is a certain age, mileage, and has passed a rigorous inspection in order to qualify. The age, mileage, and inspection points may differ slightly, but they all exist to ensure only later-model, lower-mileage vehicles in the best shape qualify for the program.

Nissan CPO vehicles, for example, must pass a 167-point inspection, be less than six years old from the new car's original in-service date, and have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer. There are no restrictions on model, so you can find the most popular Nissans, like the Rogue, Sentra, Pathfinder, and more available as CPO.

Another example is GM, whose standards for their program are the vehicle must be less than 6 years old, under 75,000 miles, and pass a 172-Point vehicle inspection. As you can see, the standards aren't exactly the same, but they are very similar. In each case, the manufacturer is ensuring only the best used cars, trucks, or SUVs receive the CPO label.


Like the requirements, the benefits have a lot in common, but they do vary from brand to brand. Be sure to check with the dealership for complete details on what you'll enjoy by choosing to go with a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.

The key benefit to choosing a CPO vehicle is the warranty. Because of the strict requirements we've just discussed, the manufacturer backs up the vehicle with a warranty. That means, even though you're buying a "used car", you'll be backed up by a warranty, just like any new car would enjoy. Let's take Nissan for example again. They provide a 7-year/100,000-mile limited warranty for their CPO vehicles.1 GM, on the other hand, offers a 6-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain limited warranty.2 Check with your dealer for complete details on what your CPO warranty covers.

Other common benefits included with a CPO vehicle include a vehicle history report, some period of free roadside assistance, and possibly other perks like a satellite radio subscription. Your key benefit remains the warranty, but these additional features are great to have as well.
