What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

What does certified pre-owned mean? The meaning of certified pre-owned, (or CPO for short) is a class of pre-owned vehicles that are backed by some type of warranty coverage on top of any outstanding new vehicle limited warranty coverage remaining at the time they are purchased. 

Cheaper than new vehicles, but providing additional peace-of-mind compared to true used vehicles, CPO vehicles make for a fantastic financial choice. Most manufacturer-certified vehicles also are backed by roadside assistance coverage, a vehicle history report, and must undergo rigorous inspection before being certified.

GMC CPO Trucks & SUVs

What’s the CPO meaning for GMC? New GMC models are your premier “professional-grade” trucks and SUVs on Cedar Park and Austin streets. So it stands that certified pre-owned GMC vehicles offer the same predictable quality and professionalism, but for less! Not just any GMC can become certified pre-owned. What does “certified pre-owned” mean when it comes to GMC models? Here’s a checklist:

  • Inspection: A GMC-certified dealership must make sure that any GMC up for certification undergoes a comprehensive 172-point quality-assurance inspection. 
  • Model Year: Each certified pre-owned GMC must be within six years of age or newer. No exceptions.
  • Mileage: Each certified pre-owned GMC must have no more than 75,000 miles on the odometer. No exceptions.
  • Vehicle History Report: Each certified pre-owned GMC must be sold with a vehicle history report, proving that the recommended maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual was followed by previous owners.
