In an Edmunds.com sur­vey, 88% of 2,017 used car shop­pers polled said that if they were shop­ping for a used car they would be will­ing to pay more a cer­ti­fied pre-owned vehi­cle. Among these poten­tial CPO shop­pers, 37.8% said that they would spend up to an addi­tion­al $1,000 for the ben­e­fits of a CPO vehi­cle. The Edmunds sur­vey find­ings were released at a time when CPO sales are hit­ting their all-time high lev­els; Edmunds ana­lysts expect growth to con­tin­ue in the com­ing year.
