Why Buy Pre-Owned?

When searching for your next vehicle, one of the first questions you might ask yourself is “Should I buy used or new?” While the answer may vary from person to person, we’ve compiled a list of reasons why you might choose to purchase a pre-owned vehicle or certified pre-owned vehicle.

Value
New vehicles are known to depreciate faster than used cars, typically by about 20% after the first year and about 10% every year thereafter. By purchasing used, you skip the initial depreciation and potentially even reduce the cost of your insurance since it is often based on the value of your vehicle.

Features
You might be enamored by the technology features in a new vehicle, but what if you could get a slightly older vehicle with the same features for less? With very few exceptions, the technology features available in today’s new cars are available in older vehicles – heads-up display, navigation, cooled seats, just about everything!

Why Buy Certified Pre-Owned?

Inspection
Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are a great way to meet in the middle. CPO vehicles are thoroughly examined with extensive checklists provided by the manufacturers. Some of these items include a maximum mileage and age amongst several others. Many CPO programs even address aftermarket accessories and disqualify those vehicles from being accepted into their program.

Warranty
Since CPO vehicles undergo extremely thorough inspections, manufacturers often include a variety of different warranties that include powertrain, roadside assistance and much more! CPO warranties vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so be sure to check in with your sales consultant to see what’s exactly included in yours!
