What's the Difference Between Used and Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles?

While browsing our selection of used vehicles for sale here at our Columbus dealership, you might have noticed that some of them are marked as certified pre-owned (CPO). We offer a wide range of used cars, trucks, and SUVs for sale, and that includes CPO Ford models, which represent some of the most exciting items in our inventory.

So, what's the difference between used cars and certified pre-owned cars? Here's a quick overview:

Used vs. Certified Pre-Owned

All CPO vehicles fall under the used category, but CPO models have to meet specific criteria to gain certification. While the term "used" refers to a vehicle that has had at least one other owner in the past between rolling off the assembly line and making its way to our lot, CPO vehicles represent a narrower set of vehicles that meet certain standards.

So, even though all the used vehicles in our inventory are top-notch, our selection of CPO vehicles are the cream of the crop. Buying a CPO Ford means that you can take advantage of perks like warranty coverage and 24-hour roadside assistance. Each CPO Ford must also pass a rigorous 172-point inspection to earn certification, so you can enjoy a boost of confidence when you buy a CPO Ford at our Ford dealership near Dublin.
