What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

Certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles is where pre-owned vehicles and brand-new models meet in the middle. If you’re shopping for a vehicle with new model quality but don’t want the new model price, then certified pre-owned vehicles are the way to go. Learn more about the benefits of certified pre-owned vehicles with Shottenkirk Kia of Quincy, and visit us to explore our CPO inventory to find a great vehicle for your Hannibal, MO commute.



Kia CPO Meaning

All CPO vehicles are pre-owned, but not all pre-owned vehicles are CPO vehicles. This means that in order to earn the CPO title, a used vehicle must pass a series of inspections and other criteria to fit the CPO label. What does certified pre-owned mean when it comes to meeting this criteria? Here is what a pre-owned Kia vehicle goes through to earn the title of CPO:

  • Model Year: Each used Kia model has to be less than five years old to qualify as a CPO vehicle.
  • Miles: A CPO vehicle must not exceed a certain amount of miles on the odometer. For Kia, a certified pre-owned vehicle can’t have more than 60,000 miles.
  • Vehicle History Report: A CPO vehicle must have a satisfactory vehicle history report, meaning the previous driver followed the vehicle’s maintenance schedule and other services.
  • Inspection: To earn the title of certified pre-owned, a Kia vehicle must undergo a points inspection process. For Kia, a pre-owned vehicle must pass with 164 points.
