Certified Pre-Owned vs used

Simply put, a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a used vehicle that’s been inspected and reconditioned but still covered with a limited warranty and purchased from a dealership. Buying certified pre-owned vehicles can be less risky than buying non-certified or privately sold used vehicles, which may not have undergone any stringent certification process.
