Why Get a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

Certified pre-owned or CPO cars shield buyers from worry as they offer good warranty coverage and reliability. And a lot of buyers are starting to realize this. A recent study showed that younger car buyers are willing to pay up to $3,800 more for a certified pre-owned model.

CPO cars from dealerships offer extended factory warranty, and opting for one gives consumers better protection against defects and expensive repairs. Still, it depends on the dealer, so buyers should carefully study the dealer’s offered services and accompanying documents to check for this additional coverage and its extent.

Also, CPO models have better, more competitive resale value than other used cars priced at the same range. Paying a little extra shouldn’t be a problem if the coverage is significantly longer and the car is thoroughly inspected based on manufacturer standards.

Lastly, CPO cars free up the buyer from expensive maintenance. Unlike non-CPO vehicles sold by private sellers, those that fall under the CPO requirement are checked and tested for age and mileage; the CPO stamp of approval ensures that the car you are buying will not lead to highway headaches nor succumb to humps on the road.

The Advantages Of Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

When selecting a vehicle, the two common choices customers have are to buy a new car or a used one. However, there is another alternative that many customers are now aware of: purchasing a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle, or a used car that have been guaranteed to be in decent condition by the manufacturer.

Some advantages of buying a CPO car are the following:

Best of both worlds

On the one hand, buying a new car, while it brings numerous advantages, can be a financially difficult undertaking, which is why many customers would rather not go through with the purchase. On the other hand, a pre-owned car would cost much less, but it carries more risks.

CPO vehicles also sell significantly less than brand-new cars, but they have minimal risks because they have been gently used (with an assurance that the vehicles had not been involved in major collisions), thoroughly inspected, and reconditioned.

Minimized depreciation

When a new car is driven off from the dealership, its value has already depreciated by about 20 percent. That value goes down by 10 to 20 percent more during the first year of owning the car. Buying a CPO car is more cost-effective because the vehicle’s depreciation rate is already minimal.

Lower insurance costs

Because the insurance rate is determined by the value of the car, the costs of insuring a CPO car is lower than that of new vehicles. There are also some elements of car insurance that can be dropped, further reducing insurance costs.
