When you're on the hunt for a used vehicle for your commutes around the Dickson City, Scranton, and Wilkes-Barre, PA, areas, you may be considering a certified pre-owned (CPO) model. Before you decide, you'll want to do a bit of research on the meaning of certified pre-owned, so you can figure out if it's the right choice for you.

At Gibbons Ford, we want to make that process as simple as possible for our drivers, so we broke down used vs. CPO models and highlighted some of their advantages here on our website.

What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

A certified pre-owned vehicle is a used model that runs and feels like it's new.

That's because in order to qualify, it must pass a rigorous inspection and have a low odometer rating. Any part of the vehicle that isn't in premium condition is repaired or replaced with OEM (original equipment manufacturer) products.

Typical used vehicles for sale don't have as strict of regulations.
