Deal Badges

Deal badges represent how well a particular vehicle is priced within the market you're shopping in. Our deal badging considers several different factors impacting a vehicle's value, such as: condition, ownership history, popular features (like Bluetooth and memory seats), along with other market factors. All this data is used to compare similar vehicles so that we find exceptional deals for you.

Certified Pre-Owned

In the Price Comparison Tool you'll sometimes see this icon indicating a vehicle has qualified for a Certified Pre-Owned program. The CPO badge distinguishes used vehicles that have been certified by their OEM (i.e Ford). A CPO car must first meet minimum age and mileage requirements, and then pass a thorough inspection. An automaker or dealer will check on hundreds of parts and systems to ensure they meet the minimum requirements. Then, typically, the CPO car will get a warranty that extends the miles covered, the months remaining, or both to the bumper-to-bumper warranty or powertrain warranty.

This extended warranty will be reflected in the higher price these vehicles tend to carry. CPO cars also often come with a free vehicle history report, roadside assistance programs and other perks. To be clear, only a manufacturer's franchised dealer can sell that manufacturer's CPO vehicles. This means that if a dealership can sell new Hondas, then it can also sell Honda CPO used vehicles. It cannot, however, sell a BMW or any other brand of used vehicle as certified. Car shoppers are often confused as dealers will sometimes call their used vehicles "certified" because they've put them through a basic inspection. These vehicles are not actual CPO vehicles as they have not met the manufacturer's criteria for inspection, so they will not qualify for Certified Pre-Owned status.
