A used vehicle that features a warranty similar to a brand-new car is known as a CPO car. A Certified Pre-Owned car could even have a better warranty than when it was new, in some cases. Yet, some dealers may offer cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans that they ‘certify’, but it can just be a play on words. The dealer might offer a certification procedure on pre-owned cars, but it’s not quite the same. A manufacturer Certified Pre-Owned car is subjected to a strict and specific inspection, supplies a new car experience, and boasts perks like lower financing options. The one place to purchase a legitimate Certified Pre-Owned car is from the vehicle manufacturer’s dealership.
The biggest benefit of a CPO car is peace of mind. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are hand-picked because they’re accident-free, have low miles, and are typically nicer than the average pre-owned car. Once established as a possible CPO contender, the vehicle will undergo a rigorous inspection process. If the inspection process identifies any issues with the vehicle then they will be repaired before the vehicle is certified. Once certified, the car gets a warranty to guard against future issues.
Another benefit of a CPO car is that you get a vehicle that seems new, drives new, and comes with a warranty, all without the new-car price. A CPO car is typically among the best deals on the market since the new-car depreciation has already occurred. While you could get a warranty from a 3rd party on nearly any vehicle, a Certified Pre-Owned warranty is not only more robust but generally more cost-effective.
There are additional advantages of purchasing a CPO car. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles qualify for lower interest options and even extended loan term lengths. In the rare event that your CPO car, truck, SUV, or minivan breaks down, complimentary roadside assistance is another likely advantage (and there might be a complimentary loaner vehicle waiting). A complimentary satellite radio trial, prepaid maintenance options, and trip insurance are all other upgrades that may be available. For more information, see one of our CPO professionals.
