At MINI of Escondido, we’ve created online car-buying tips and tricks to help you find the model that’s right for you and your driving needs. Not interested in a new model? Check out our CPO inventory. So, what does Certified Pre-Owned mean? Learn more about the Certified Pre-Owned Meaning with the MINI of Escondido team today, then get pre-approved for your favorite, affordable MINI model!

The MINI CPO Meaning

The Certified Pre-Owned meaning begins with the models. This title means that the vehicle’s in the inventory are less than five years old, have fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer, have an excellent bill of health on their CARFAX® Vehicle History Report, and pass a 165-point inspection to ensure like-new quality. So, when you’re buying CPO, you’re getting a like-new model at the used vehicle price. These models forgo rigorous inspection in order to be given this title so San Marcos drivers and beyond can rest assured they are getting a quality model for a more affordable price, especially when they use our pre-owned vehicle specials as well.

MINI Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Coverage

When you get behind the wheel of a CPO MINI model, know that you’re covered by the MINI Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty. This warranty covers a 6-year/unlimited-mile warranty from the original in-service date. This also includes a Roadside Assistance Plan with 24/7 access. If you’re interested in more coverage options, contact our team. We’ll be more than happy to walk you through additional coverage options for the vehicle you’re interested in.
