What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

2019 Mercedes-Benz A 220 In the City



At Mercedes-Benz of Escondido, we have a wide variety of Certified Pre-owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles for sale in greater San Diego. However, our Escondido and San Marcos customers often ask us, “What does Certified Pre-owned mean?”. If you’re unsure of what the CPO meaning is, let us walk you through everything you need to know about this wonderful opportunity to save on your next vehicle.

CPO Meaning

Certified Pre-owned vehicles are automobiles that are used, but in like-new condition. They present Valley Center shoppers with an excellent opportunity to drive a virtually new vehicle for less. Their value only increases when you consider that they’ve been fully refurbished and come with a host of warranties and additional perks.

Mercedes-Benz CPO Program Qualifications

What does Certified Pre-owned mean? Every Mercedes-Benz model that qualifies for the designation of being a CPO model must be no older than 6 years of age, have fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer, and must have been serviced in accordance with the Mercedes-Benz maintenance plan. Each car must also have a satisfactory CARFAX® Vehicle History Report. Finally, the vehicles that meet the aforementioned requirements must pass a rigorous 165-point inspection to ensure nearly new quality.

Mercedes-Benz Warranty Coverage

No definition of the CPO meaning would be complete without a comprehensive breakdown of Mercedes-Benz warranty coverage. Many Certified Pre-owned Mercedes-Benz models still fall within the bounds of their original manufacturer warranty. When you go CPO, you can add on an additional 12-months of coverage with unlimited mileage*, which means you’ll save thousands at our service department.

Additional Perks

Mercedes-Benz doesn’t stop with like-new quality or warranty coverage. When you purchase a Certified Pre-owned vehicle, Temecula drivers will also enjoy:

  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance: Whether you need trip interruption service, a tire change, fresh fuel, or a jumpstart, Mercedes-Benz of Escondido has your back.
  • Nationwide Support: With over 300 Mercedes-Benz dealers across the nation, you won’t have trouble finding a service garage to honor your warranty, no matter where you are.
  • Exchange Policy: If you’re not satisfied with your vehicle, you have 7 days/500 miles in which to exchange it.
