CPO could also be 3CPO's father. More likely the answer you seek is "Certified Pre Owned". Rules regarding what qualifies varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. My 2014 Lincoln MKZ AWD was CPO with 7,200 miles and lots of warranty.


or....A certified pre-owned car or CPO is a type of used car. Most often late-model, they differ from other used cars by having been inspected, refurbished, and certified by a manufacturer or other certifying authority. They also typically include an extended warranty, special financing, and additional benefits.
