What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

Mechanic Going Over Checklist

What does certified pre-owned mean? Opting for a CPO vehicle from Auffenberg Kia means you’ll receive the high-end quality of a new model but at the price point of a used model. In other words, buying certified pre-owned is as close as you can get to buying new! All certified pre-owned models have passed thorough manufacturer-designed inspections to qualify for this title, so O'Fallon area drivers can rest assured that these models are high-quality. 

Take a look at our CPO inventory and choose the new-to-you model that fits your driving needs, whether you’re commuting in Trenton or dining out in Smithton.

CPO Meaning and Qualifications

Kia certified pre-owned vehicles go through a 164-point inspection in order to qualify as CPO, and they also have to meet certain other restrictions. If you choose a certified pre-owned model, you can rest assured that you’ve chosen a reliable model. Here’s what allows a Kia vehicle to be certified by the manufacturer:

  • Model year: A CPO Kia must be less than five years old.
  • Mileage: A CPO Kia cannot have more than 60,000 miles.
  • Inspection: As noted above, certification involves a 164-point inspection, covering all of the vehicle’s most important components.

Of course, reliability and value aren’t the only factors that set CPO models apart from other used cars. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of driving certified pre-owned.
