What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

Used Cars from Above

Most drivers know used vehicles are sometimes known as pre-owned, but what does certified pre-owned mean? This category ensures high quality pre-owned models that are in the condition of a new model with a used vehicle price tag. These vehicles have to be inspected thoroughly to even be considered for this category. Find out more about CPO Nissan models, their qualifications, and more with us at Auffenberg Nissan. Then get behind the wheel of your favorite model today!

CPO Qualifications

Not just any vehicle can become certified pre-owned. There are some inspections and other qualifications these vehicles must meet before claiming the certified pre-owned title. In order to qualify for the CPO program, cars are held to this strict criteria:

  • Each car must be a newer model year — on Nissan, this means it must be from the last 6 years.
  • Each car must have a lower amount of miles — a CPO Nissan must have less than 80,000 miles, and many have much lower.
  • At a certified dealership, the vehicle must undergo a multi-point inspection for quality — Nissan developed an extensive 167-point inspection.
Mechanic Going Over Checklist

If a vehicle meets these qualifications, they are given the CPO title and offered to our Collinsville and Fairview Heights drivers. When you’re ready to get behind the wheel of a like-new vehicle for a great price, make your way to Auffenberg Nissan.
