When you go car shopping, you basically have three choices: buy a new car, buy a used car, or buy a certified pre-owned car. What’s the difference between a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle and a non-certified vehicle? Well, it really just comes down to just one word: quality. Certified pre-owned vehicles are the cream of the crop and must undergo a stringent process to make the certified program.


While the process for CPO qualification varies from car manufacturer to manufacturer and car dealer to car dealer, basically all CPO vehicles pass a 100-200 point inspection, have low mileage, are later model years and come with benefits you just don’t get with non-certified pre-owned vehicles. At Groove Subaru of Silverthorne, we take our certified pre-owned vehicle program very seriously, and we can assure you that only the best used cars make it into this highly selective program.
