What is the Difference Between Used & Certified Pre-Owned?

2021 Genesis GV80 racing down highway


If you’re shopping for a used vehicle in greater Henderson, take a moment to compare used vs. CPO vehicles. We’ll cover whether certified pre-owned is better than used, and the highlights of the Genesis certified pre-owned (CPO) program. Once you’re done reading, apply for financing and get in touch with Genesis of Las Vegas in Las Vegas to arrange for a test drive. 

Used Vehicles

A used vehicle is any vehicle that’s been previously owned. All certified pre-owned vehicles are used vehicles, but not all used certified pre-owned vehicles. So what is the difference between a conventional used and certified pre-owned vehicle? And is certified pre-owned better than used? The main difference is that a conventional used vehicle isn’t necessarily in like-new condition and hasn’t passed a rigorous inspection at the hands of Genesis-certified mechanics. You can rest assured, however, that a used vehicle you purchase from Genesis of Las Vegas has been thoroughly inspected and is in reliable condition. Chances are that any conventional used vehicle you may be interested in is also more affordable than a certified pre-owned vehicle. 

Certified Pre-owned Vehicles 

When it comes to CPO vs. used vehicles, certified pre-owned models have been previously owned, but they have fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer, they’re no more than 5 years old, and have clean titles. Furthermore, they’ve undergone a 191-point inspection to ensure like-new quality at the hands of our certified Genesis mechanics. If they don’t pass in any category, they’re refurbished with OEM parts until they can be certified. Other perks North Las Vegas drivers can expect include: 

  • 10-year/10,000-mile powertrain warranty 
  • 6-year/75,000-mile limited warranty 
  • 10-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance
