A used vehicle that has a warranty akin to a brand-new car is known as a CPO car. As a matter of fact, in some rare cases, a Certified Pre-Owned car, truck, SUV, or minivan could have a better warranty than when it was new. Meanwhile, other dealers may offer cars that they ‘certify’, but it’s just a play on words. Those dealerships could offer a certification process on pre-owned vehicles, but it’s not quite the same. A true Certified Pre-Owned vehicle goes through a strict and detailed inspection, provides new car reliability, and has perks like lower financing rates. The singular place to buy a CPO car is from a dealership backed by the vehicle manufacturer.
Reliability is the main advantage of getting a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are specifically chosen because they are accident-free, have lower miles, and are usually nicer than the regular used car. Once determined to be a possible CPO contender, it will be subjected to a rigorous inspection procedure. If the inspection process finds any issues with the car then they will be repaired before the car can be certified. Once the vehicle is certified, it obtains an extended warranty to protect the owner from issues in the future.
Another perk of a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is that you get a car that seems new, drives like new, and has an extended warranty, but without the new-car price tag. A CPO car is typically one of the best buys in the pre-owned market because the new depreciation has already occurred. While a 3rd party warranty might be available on most vehicles, a CPO warranty is not only more comprehensive but generally more cost-effective.
There are extra perks of purchasing a CPO car. Most Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles qualify for lower financing rates and even longer loan terms. In the rare instance that your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle breaks down, complimentary roadside assistance is yet another likely benefit (and they could even have a free loaner car waiting). Prepaid maintenance options, a complimentary trial of satellite radio, and trip insurance are other benefits that could be available. For more information, see one of our CPO specialists.
