    Yes. I guess the certified pre-owned inspection is supposed to take the place of having a used car inspected by your own mechanic before purchasing. In the certified pre-owned scenario...the place doing the inspection & the place selling the car are generally the same place. Which of course is not always good...since it's not independent.

    But maybe it's better than nothing...since few used car buyers have a used car they are thinking of buying inspected professionally before purchase.

    I'm assuming the UK and US humour is similar in recognising that a word may have two meanings: it's not always the car that needs to be certified, it's just as often the second-hand-car sales person.

    Yes sir..."certified" can have multiple meanings in the US too!
