Can a car involved in accident become a Certified Pre-Owned?
the accident here means minor ones..such as front end hit others rear end.. Can a car has accident and with non-lexus parts on it become a CPO car?
Btw, who do the certificate? dealership?
Or Lexus CPO means absolutely no accident...and every parts on the car is LEXUS parts?

it all depends on degree of damage....it is the dealer who certifies the car. though they all do their best to follow the guidelines established by Lexus, i have seen wide range of standards between dealers across the US.
you can have minor bumper bender, fixed to Lexus standard and becomes a CPO lex. conversely, i have seen cars that are mechnically sound, no accident BUT did not get approved due to cig burns on the leather that is beyond repair..
another question is...
"Lexus standard"? In order to "reach" the standard, the part should be all the "lexus" original parts, right? and everything should be repaired to the "orignal condition"?
how about the parts? I mean the dealers got the cars from various sources...right..then they inspect it and repair/replace new parts if necessary. The parts should all be lexus original parts, right? or OEM parts are ok as well?
BTW, if I bring my dad's car to a dealer and ask them to inspect the car to identify "none-lexus" parts, Will they do that? and will they let me know what those parts are?
