What are certified pre-owned vehicles?

Certified Pre-Owned vehicles or CPOs are the Ford trucks and cars that are second-hand but fall in the criteria of being gently used, properly reconditioned, and have been deemed fit to reuse. They also come with the Ford CPO warranty from Ford and the dealership.

What is the difference between a CPO and a non-CPO vehicle?

There are certain criteria a vehicle must meet in order to be declared fit for the CPO tag. These include-

  1. It must be a certain age, typically not more than 4 years.
  2. Mileage limit.
  3. Must pass the rigorous 172 multipoint inspection.
  4. Each part not meeting the standards should be replaced.

As you can see, all of these points combined together ensure that a vehicle is in almost-pristine condition to be deemed CPO. And this obviously ensures that you are not hit with a repair bill two weeks after purchasing the vehicle. This is also why is it important to do these things before buying a used vehicle to avoid spending money on something you might regret later.
