If you’re shopping for your next vehicle, you’re naturally looking for the one that will offer the most value for the best price. You know that buying a used car will save you a lot of money, but perhaps you’re worried about the reliability of a used car. If that’s the case, you should be investigating the world of Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles.
CPO vehicles are like the middle ground between brand new and used cars. These cars fit a special list of qualifications set forth by each individual manufacturer. Qualifications for the CPO designation include things like the age of the vehicle, the number of miles on it, and its accident history. CPO vehicles also have to pass detailed inspections by the manufacturers themselves. By setting forth these standards, manufacturers are able to create a selection of used vehicles that are in excellent, practically like-new condition.
Because these vehicles are inspected and certified by the manufacturer, they cost more than regular used vehicles. However, the benefits of CPO vehicles—which extend beyond the confidence in the manufacturer certification—are worth the extra money.
In fact, many buyers are happy to invest a little extra to have the peace of mind that comes with CPO vehicles. And peace of mind is the manufacturer’s intention as well. They want you to know that they’re confident in their product’s reliability. To show this, brands back up their CPO vehicles with warranties. You would never find that benefit in a regular used car. On top of the added warranties, CPO vehicles are often equipped with roadside assistance. Each CPO program is a little different, but when you buy a CPO vehicle, you can be certain that you’re getting a like-new experience and product for a much lower price.
