  • A vehicle with all the bells and whistles you may not have been able to afford new can be attainable at a great price used.


Benefits of Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

  • Certified pre-owned vehicles are like new with low mileage and are a recent model year.
  • A thorough inspection is performed before the vehicle is put up for sale.
  • CPO models include the remainder of the manufacturer warranty. Depending on the vehicle and dealership, additional warranties may be available.


Key Differences

There’s no one definite answer when it comes to buying used or pre-owned. The decision relies entirely on your needs. Buying a used car, truck, or SUV will cost less overall. Buying a certified pre-owned vehicle will also cost you less, but its quality is guaranteed thanks to the CPO warranty.
