What is a Used Car?

To learn what the difference is between used and certified pre-owned vehicles, Cornwall drivers first need to understand what a used vehicle is. A used model is any vehicle that has ever been previously owned. While all certified pre-owned vehicles our used vehicles, not all used vehicles are certified pre-owned, meaning that the concept of a used car is a much broader tent.

What is a Certified Pre-owned Car?

When it comes CPO vs. used vehicles, certified pre-owned (CPO) models can be distinguished by the fact that, though used, they’ve been inspected and certified by a manufacturer-approved mechanic as being in like-new condition. They’re often recent model year vehicles with low mileage, and come with a long list of additional perks. By way of example, here are all the benefits of the Chevrolet Certified Pre-owned Program:

  • 150-point inspection for like-new quality
  • 3-month/5,000 km warranty coverage
  • Options for transferable extended warranties
  • Remainder of any active original new vehicle warranty
  • 24/7 roadside assistance
  • 30-day exchange privilege
  • Trip interruption reimbursement allowance
  • Complimentary trial subscriptions to SiriusXM™ and OnStar
  • And a host of additional perks!
