CPO Inventory


If you’re in San Diego and want the guaranteed quality of a new car but with a price closer to what you’d expect for a used model, then a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle may be exactly what you’re looking for! But what actually is a certified pre-owned vehicle, you ask? Let the experts at Mercedes-Benz of San Diego tell you what a CPO vehicle is, and all of the benefits that come with it.

CPO Meaning

Certified pre-owned vehicles aren’t just glorified used cars. For a vehicle to become a part of the Mercedes-Benz CPO program at our dealership, it must:

  • Be less than six years old
  • Have under 75,000 miles
  • Pass a 165-point inspection that includes multiple road tests

Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned Cars

Buying a certified pre-owned vehicle scores you a fair number of benefits, with the most obvious being the cheaper price you pay than if you were to buy a new car. And whereas you may be uncertain with the quality of a used vehicle, thanks to the inspections and guidelines every CPO vehicle must abide by, you can be certain that the certified pre-owned vehicle you buy will be of spectacular quality. To make you feel even safer about your purchase, vehicles in the CPO program also come with a complete warranty package.
