A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a pre-owned car, truck, SUV, or minivan that features a warranty like a brand-new car. A Certified Pre-Owned car, truck, SUV, or minivan could even have a better warranty than when the vehicle was new, in some cases. Yet, some dealers may offer cars that they ‘certify’, but it’s just a play on words. The dealer could offer a certification procedure on their pre-owned vehicles, but it’s not quite the same thing. An actual Certified Pre-Owned car goes through a specific and strict inspection, provides new car peace of mind, and has bonuses like special financing options. The one way to get a legitimate CPO vehicle is from the vehicle manufacturer’s dealership.
The biggest advantage of purchasing a CPO vehicle is its reliability. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are specifically chosen because they have low miles, they’re accident-free, and are typically in better condition than the average used car. Once determined to be a potential CPO contender, that vehicle will undergo a stringent inspection. If the inspection finds any issues with the car then they will be repaired before the vehicle is certified. Once a vehicle is certified, it gets an extended warranty to guard against future problems.
Another advantage of buying a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is that you get a vehicle that seems new, drives like new, and has an extended warranty, but without the new-car price tag. Because the new-car depreciation has already taken place, a CPO vehicle is typically among the best deals on the pre-owned market. While a 3rd party warranty might be available on most vehicles, a CPO warranty is not just more robust but typically more cost-effective.
Buying a CPO vehicle has some extra advantages that you may not be aware of. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are eligible for lower interest options and even extended loan terms. In the rare event that your CPO vehicle breaks down, courtesy roadside assistance is another likely advantage (and they may have a complimentary loaner waiting for you). A free trial of satellite radio, prepaid maintenance options, and trip interruption insurance are other upgrades that may be available.
