What does certified pre-owned mean? What is the CPO meaning? CPO stands for “certified pre-owned.” This category of vehicles combines the condition and high quality of a new model with the price tag of a used vehicle. Once you’re ready to get behind the wheel of a CPO model from Keffer Mazda, or if you want to learn more about certified pre-owned vehicles and the benefits, contact us!

Mazda CPO Vehicles

A CPO model needs to meet a variety of requirements before gaining the title CPO and being put on the lot. Models that go through our CPO program, as well as our used models, are held up to high standards. So, what does “certified pre-owned” mean when it comes to Mazda models? Check out the requirements with our team:

  • Model Year: Each car must be a newer model year. For Mazda, the requirement is five years old or newer.
  • Miles: Each car must have fewer miles on the odometer. For Mazda, the requirement is 85,000 miles or fewer.
  • Vehicle History Report: Each car must have a thorough and satisfactory vehicle history report, proving that the recommended maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual was followed.
  • Inspection: A Mazda-certified dealership must perform a multi-point inspection for quality. For Keffer Mazda, it is a 165-point inspection, checking components like engine checks, transmission checks, and a few others. This inspection also includes a road test.

Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned Cars

Some drivers are looking for the lower price of a used model with the features and conveniences of a newer model. With CPO models, drivers can get the newer model they want at a lower price.You can buy with confidence knowing that your vehicle has been inspected from top to bottom by a certified expert. Every CPO car comes with a comprehensive warranty package to protect your investment. Learn more with our team at Keffer Mazda today!

Used vs. Certified Pre-Owned vs. New Vehicles

  • Used Vehicles: Tend to have lower prices and a larger variety of vehicles in terms of makes, models, features, mileage, and age.
  • Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles: A great middle ground, with amenities for a lower price than in a new vehicle, but with more quality assurance and vehicle history knowledge than with a normal used vehicle.
  • New Vehicles: Give you the latest technologies and the peace of mind that comes with a brand-new model.
