If you’re shopping for a car but a new model may be a little out of your price range, then you should think about a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle (CPO).
This guide goes over some commonly asked questions about CPO cars:
What are CPO Vehicles Exactly?
CPO models are basically special non-new cars. In order to get the designation, they can’t be older than five years and can’t have more than 60,000 miles on their odometers.
Is That All that Makes Them Special?
Nope. They all have to pass a rigorous 123-point inspection. A certified Mitsubishi technician closely examines all major systems and components and takes the vehicle out for a road assessment.
How Can I Be Sure I’m getting a Quality Car?
If the inspection doesn’t wow you, then you’ll be happy to know that every CPO car comes with a Vehicle History Report. This will give you details on how the vehicle was treated by previous owners, including service and repair history and if it was involved in an accident.
Do They Come with any Protections?
Yes they do. All new models come with two warranties: A five-year/50,000- mile basic warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Whatever time or mileage is left on those warranties will be applied to your CPO car.
On top of that, you will get 24-hour emergency roadside assistance for however long the warranties last. This includes getting help for a flat tire, dead battery, or even a tow.
