Buying a certified pre-owned vehicle gives you the perfect balance between the benefits of buying a new vehicle and the benefits of buying a used one. With a CPO vehicle, you get a like-new vehicle without having to pay the steep price of a new model, and you don’t have to worry about the risks associated with buying a used vehicle.
There are certain requirements for a vehicle to be deemed “certified pre-owned” or “CPO.” In general, potential CPO vehicles go through a rigorous inspection process and must meet certain mileage, age, and cosmetic requirements. Although they are still used vehicles, they are gently used, have never been in a significant car accident/collision, and have depreciated in value from the new car mark-up price – which is good for you. Although the car is not brand new, it is generally from a recent model year and is often part of the same generation, has the same equipment, and has similar technology as the current model year. Additionally, CPO vehicles allow cars typically outside of your price range to fit within your budget, as long as you’re willing to get a car from a previous model year.
Certified pre-owned vehicles don’t have the same risks associated with buying used. To earn the CPO title, vehicles have to go through a manufacturer-sponsored process. Furthermore, CPO vehicles generally come with admirable warranties on top of the car’s original warranty. These warranties will protect your purchase for a particular amount of time or up to a particular number of miles, which will give you greater confidence and peace of mind when buying certified pre-owned than when buying used.
