What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

In your search for your next Valparaiso commuter or commercial vehicles, you’ve surely perused countless inventories of new and used vehicles, even used vehicles under 10K – but what about certified pre-owned options? There are plenty of benefits to choosing certified pre-owned vs. used for your next vehicle, but let’s start by answering the question, “what does certified pre-owned mean?” Simply put, certified pre-owned, or CPO vehicles, combine the quality, condition, and features of a new model – like the new Dodge Journey interior – with the affordable price point of a used model. You get the best of both worlds!

CPO Meaning

Many Portage shoppers love CPO options because they can save money without sacrificing peace of mind. Here’s what you can expect from the vehicles in our CPO inventory:

  • In order for a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram vehicle to qualify for the CPO program, it must pass a rigorous 125-point inspection that covers both mechanical and appearance tests.
  • It must also fall within the last five model years and have fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer.
  • When you choose a CPO Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, you’ll also receive a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™.
  • This report will tell you a lot of important information about the vehicle, including any past accidents and whether it has ever been a part of a fleet.
