What Is Certified Pre-Owned?
A pre-owned or used vehicle is one that someone else purchased or leased and drove prior to being resold. Sometimes, a pre-owned vehicle can pass through many hands before you buy it. Because you don’t always have a full history, you might find it difficult to learn about the maintenance records and quality of the vehicle. Certified programs for pre-owned vehicles seek to solve these issues and provide you with more peace of mind when purchasing a used car.
When a car is certified, it means it’s passed safety tests and meets many other requirements. For example, many certifying qualifications require that the vehicle stays within a certain amount of mileage to remain eligible. Certified pre-owned vehicles pass through rigorous inspections of the structure and mechanical components to ensure they’re in good shape and ready to drive. A certified pre-owned vehicle is an option between a brand new car and a non-certified used car that many buyers find helps them balance quality and budget.
Benefits of Buying Pre-Owned
When you’re in the market for a new ride, sometimes a new vehicle isn’t the right fit for you. When buying a used car, you may find some downsides, such as more wear and tear and uncertainty about which car to choose. However, there are also many benefits to purchasing pre-owned vehicles. These are some benefits you may experience when choosing a pre-owned vehicle over a new car:
- Less depreciation: When you purchase a new car, you often lose a large amount of the value when you drive it off the lot. This can make purchasing a brand new car less cost-effective, as you can’t sell the vehicle for the same amount of money you spent to buy it in the first place.
- Insurance savings: It may cost less to insure a used car, as the vehicle itself isn’t worth as much as a new car. This can help you lower your overall auto budget and allocate that money elsewhere.
- More options: When buying a used car, it may be easier to find the options you want. This is because you’re not just limited to the current new models and trims.
- Registration: Like with insurance, you can save on registration when purchasing a used car. It often costs less to register an older car than a newer one, and as the car becomes older, the registration becomes more and more affordable.
- Lower cost: The most obvious reason to purchase a pre-owned vehicle is the lower cost up-front. Because someone else purchased or leased the car when it was new, they incurred the initial loss of value, which makes a lower price for you.
Why Buy Certified Pre-Owned?
If you’re choosing to purchase a pre-owned vehicle, opting for one that’s certified can help you avoid common pitfalls. For example, when purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle, you know it’s reliable and safe. The rigorous testing that vehicles go through to become certified allows professional mechanics to assess each component of the car before you get behind the wheel.
Through the certifying process, the vehicle also receives a deep cleaning and conditioning, which provides you with the highest quality interior experience. These are some of the many benefits you may experience when purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle:
- Warranties: When purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle, you may receive a warranty from the dealership. This is because we complete a full inspection on the vehicle, which gives us the confidence to offer a warranty.
- Safety: A non-certified pre-owned car may have potential mechanical issues that can appear when you least expect them, potentially causing hazardous situations. Avoid this by opting for a certified car that’s inspected for safety issues.
- Reliability: Beyond risking your safety, experiencing unexpected mechanical issues can be annoying and inconvenient. When you choose a certified pre-owned car, you may find it’s more reliable than a non-certified equivalent.
- History: Certified pre-owned vehicles have a clear history regarding their ownership and maintenance. This helps you rest easy knowing the car has received the proper care.
