Know What CPO Stands For

Choices are great when you have two or three fantastic options to choose from. When it comes to choosing a new or used vehicle, choices can be tough sometimes. The third option for vehicle choices is often missed or not even known about. Honda Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles are another great option, especially for Sioux City and Omaha drivers looking at Honda vehicles. So, what is a CPO vehicle?

CPO Vehicle vs. Used Vehicle

For beginners, knowing the difference between a Certified Pre-Owned and a used vehicle for sale is a good start. The main difference is the warranty and coverage a CPO vehicle offers, all differing by brand such as Honda, Nissan, or Toyota. As your Omaha area Honda dealer, Vern Eide Honda Sioux City offers an extensive selection of Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. We’ll outline what Honda CPO vehicles offer as well, but first, back to comparing CPO versus used vehicles. Many used car dealerships in Sioux City have inventory of used cars, trucks, or SUVs for sale that you can view online or stop by and see in person. They may be priced low and look good on a surface level, but it’s extremely important to know how those vehicles were inspected and the reconditioning process it has been through.

Knowing what used car for sale is best for to purchase goes far beyond what the price on the windshield says. Asking questions about used vehicles to understand these important factors can save you a headache just a few miles down the road. A few questions you can ask any used car dealership in Sioux City or Omaha:

  • What is your inspection process for used vehicles?
  • What has been repaired on this vehicle?
  • Do you have a warranty for used vehicles?
  • Do you have a vehicle history report?


Rest assured, Vern Eide Honda Sioux City has a rigorous process for used vehicle inspections and reconditioning. Make sure you ask good questions before and after you test drive any vehicle in or around Sioux City. Up next, understanding what makes a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle a good option.

Honda CPO Warranty

Certified Pre-Owned cars are vehicles that have been previously driven and usually have no more than 60,000 to 80,000 miles. Depending on the manufacturer, these vehicles are typically no older than five to seven years (the time and mileage warranties vary by manufacturer). In the case of what Vern Eide Honda of Sioux City carries, our Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles must be 6 years old or newer and the engine must have less than 80,000 miles.

As we mentioned previously, A CPO vehicle also includes an extended warranty that offers a longer warranty than used vehicles. CPO warranties often mention a limited bumper-to-bumper warranty and a number of services, such as 24-hour roadside assistance – each area is determined by the OEM (original equipment manufacturer). What does a Honda CPO warranty include? Every Honda Certified Used Car includes our 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and a 12-month/12,000-mile limited non-powertrain warranty.
