What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

Pre-Owned White SUV


Here at Sutton Ford, we’re commonly asked about CPO meaning. Put simply, CPO stands for “certified pre-owned.” So, what does certified pre-owned mean exactly? A certified pre-owned vehicle is a used vehicle that has met strict quality and condition standards that distinguish it from regular used vehicles. Explore the details of CPO meaning with this helpful guide from Sutton Ford!



CPO Meaning

Certified pre-owned vehicles are a win-win situation, combining the lower sticker price of a used vehicle with the high quality and condition of a new vehicle. For a car to be considered “certified pre-owned,” it must pass a series of rigorous tests set by the manufacturer. So, what does certified pre-owned mean when you’re browsing Ford models near Chicago? You might say Matteson shoppers are at an advantage when they opt for a certified pre-owned Ford.
