What’s the difference between used and CPO?

You might be asking yourself: Is there really a big difference betweenused andCPO vehicles? Well, our CPO, or Certified Pre-Owned, models are widely considered to be the top tier of used cars. While they must pass a 152-point inspection and satisfy the manufacturer’s requirements, they must also meet age and mileage restrictions, which tend to limit the number of used vehicles to only the best of the best. While this may make our CPO vehicles a little more expensive, we’d like to think you get out what you put into your purchase.

What is good mileage on a used car?

The mileage limit on a used vehicle varies with each model, but with advancements in modern technology, you’ll see that many of them live longer lives nowadays. As innovative powertrains and increased efficiency have continued to impact the modernization of cars, today’s vehicles won’t face major issues until around the 200,000-mile mark. While it largely depends on the brand and model you’re looking at, you’ll want to do your research to be completely sure on the vehicle you want to bring home.
