CPO stands for Certified Pre-Owned. This is basically a package of features and standards on each pre-owned vehicle to ensure that you’re getting the best product and best protection for it. General Motors’ CPO basic pillars include:
–> 150+ Point Inspection: Your vehicle will be thoroughly inspected by a Class A technician and must pass a minimum of 150 points regarding the appearance, the interior, the engine and the performance.
–> Manufacturer’s Warranty: Your vehicle will be provided with a manufacturer’s warranty of minimum 3 months or 5000 km.
–> 24 Hour Roadside Assistance: Your vehicle will be covered by GM for Roadside Assistance for a minimum of 3 months or 5000 km.
–> Exchange Privilege: If you are not satisfied with your vehicle after taking it home, you may exchange it easily within the first 30 days or 2500km.
–> $500 Student Discount: If you have a valid student ID, you could receive $500 towards your Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.
Not every car company has CPO vehicles. If you want the assurance of CPO, unfortunately you will not find it with Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Lincoln, Mitsubishi, Fiat, or Suzuki. Kia, Hyundai, and Mazda started their program last year, but only GM has been doing it for FIFTEEN years with over one million CPO vehicles sold to date, making it the number one CPO program in Canada by far.
