What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

2020 Cadillac XT5

When you’re car-shopping in the Nixa area you’re likely to see some used cars that are labeled “certified pre-owned,” especially if you’re shopping at Thompson Cadillac. What is the CPO meaning? Simply put, a CPO vehicle is a low-mileage, newer used car that’s met the criteria from the manufacturer to earn the CPO label. It’s a higher standard of used car that merits some new car perks, like warranty coverage. When you choose a CPO Cadillac, you’ll get a like-new car without a lower price. Learn more about the CPO meaning, then browse the CPO inventory at Thompson Cadillac.

The Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Program

Every vehicle manufacturer that offers a certified pre-owned program has its own criteria on what constitutes the level of quality necessary to earn the CPO label. When you buy a CPO Cadillac at Thompson Cadillac you’ll be driving in Ozark in a car that has undergone and passed a 172-point inspection. What else does certified pre-owned mean? Take a look: 

  • Model Year: Each car must be a newer model year. Cadillac requires all CPO vehicles to be under 48 months old. 
  • Miles: Each car must have fewer miles on the odometer. All Cadillac CPO vehicles must have under 50,000 miles. 
  • Vehicle History Report: You’ll get a vehicle history report with your Cadillac CPO. That report must be clean to earn the CPO label. 

Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned Cadillacs

Part of the CPO meaning that Republic drivers love is how it’s truly a like-new vehicle. But there are other perks that come with shopping for a certified pre-owned Cadillac in addition to knowing that Cadillac technicians have given it such a thorough inspection and restoration when necessary. You’ll also have extra confidence from the Cadillac CPO warranty coverage. The quality of your vehicle is backed by a 1-year unlimited mileage warranty against factory defects.
