A used car, truck, SUV, or minivan that features a warranty like a new car is known as a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle could even have a better warranty than when it was new, in some situations. On the other hand, some dealers may offer cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans that they ‘certify’, but it is just a play on words. Those dealers could complete a certification procedure on their pre-owned cars, but it’s not really the same. A true Certified Pre-Owned car undergoes a rigorous and meticulous inspection, provides new car peace of mind, and has bonuses like lower financing rates. The only way to get a legitimate Certified Pre-Owned car is at a dealership backed by the car manufacturer.
The central benefit of purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is peace of mind. Most CPO vehicles are specifically chosen because they’re accident-free, have lower miles, and are nicer than the average pre-owned car. Once determined to be a potential CPO vehicle, it will go through a rigorous inspection process. If the inspection procedure locates any issues with the car then those issues are fixed before the car is certified. Once certified, a vehicle receives an extended warranty to guard against issues in the future.
Another benefit of purchasing a CPO vehicle is you get a vehicle that appears new, drives new, and has an extended warranty, all without the new-car price. A Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is typically one of the best values on the pre-owned market since the new depreciation has already occurred. While you may be able to get a warranty from a 3rd party on almost any vehicle, a Certified Pre-Owned warranty is both more comprehensive and also more cost-effective.
Purchasing a CPO car has additional perks that buyers may not know of. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles qualify for lower financing options and also longer loan terms. In the rare instance that your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle breaks down, complimentary roadside assistance is another likely benefit (and there could even be a complimentary loaner car waiting). A complimentary satellite radio trial, prepaid maintenance options, and trip insurance are all other benefits that may be available. See our Certified Pre-Owned experts for more info.
