What is the Difference Between Used & Certified Pre-Owned?

2019 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Parked

Many Lexington area drivers often ask themselves, “What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned vehicles?” There are many differences between CPO vs. Used vehicles that we’ll cover at Allen Samuels Hyundai in Jackson. We’ll answer this big question and more down below! Check out the difference between CPO vs. Used, then value your trade-in to see which option might work best.

CPO vs. Used: Used Vehicles

So, what’s the difference between used and certified pre-owned? When it comes to shopping for a used car around Dyersburg, you’ll notice used cars are not only previously owned but they vary in mileage, years, model, and make. Used vehicles tend to be more affordable than CPO vehicles. We offer vehicles under 20K for those drivers who are looking for top budget-friendly options!

Another huge difference between CPO vs. Used is the mileage. Typically, Humboldt drivers think vehicles with 1000,000 miles are riskier, but many vehicles can last over 100,000 miles with a routine maintenance history. Keep in mind the following when considering CPO vs. Used vehicles:

  • Not all OEM dealers require an inspection before used cars go for sale, but at Allen Samuels Hyundai we personally choose our used models. We want to ensure high quality for all our customers.
  • If you see any issues, discuss them immediately with the private seller or dealership. If you choose to purchase a vehicle with a few issues, make sure you factor in money for any future repairs.
  • With consistent routine maintenance, a vehicle can last over 200,000 miles!

CPO vs. Used: CPO Vehicles

Certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles had previous owners but they meet standards that qualify them as certified. These vehicles are inspected thoroughly which are backed by manufacturer warranties. These inspections are conducted by certified service technicians and earn the title of being certified, but they aren’t the standard used cars that you see on used car lots. This is what a CPO vehicle offers:

  • Model year is within five years of the current model year
  • Generally less than 80,000 miles, sometimes up to 100,000 miles
  • A multi-point inspection
  • Offered with extended warranties and/or limited powertrain warranties
