What is the Difference Between Used and Certified Pre-Owned?

If you’re wondering what the difference is between CPO vs. used vehicles, you’re not alone. Technically both categories of vehicles fall under “used”, however there are important distinctions between used and certified pre-owned that drivers in the South Bend area will want to be aware of before shopping for their next car, truck, or SUV.

 

What to Know About Buying a Used Car

Used vehicles are vehicles that have been previously driven by other owners. They vary in terms of model year, mileage, and number of previous owners. Because of this, they are priced at a lower cost than new vehicles and certified pre-owned vehicles. In fact, we even have an inventory of used cars under $10,000 for sale in Mishawaka. Because these vehicles aren’t new, you don’t have to worry about depreciation.

While a car with 100,000 miles or more may seem like a risk, the truth is that some vehicles can last for hundreds of thousands of miles with routine maintenance and care. Even so, remember:

  • Thoroughly inspect any used vehicle you’re considering and take it for a test drive before making an offer
  • Discuss any issues in terms of vehicle condition or performance that arise, to ensure the vehicle is fit for your needs and safe to drive
  • Some cars and SUVs can last more than 200,000 miles with proper care and maintenance

What to Know About Buying a CPO Car

Certified pre-owned vehicles are part of a CPO program that has certain requirements that must be met. These requirements generally include:

  • Model year is within five years of the current model year
  • Generally less than 80,000 miles, sometimes up to 100,000 miles
  • A multi-point inspection
  • Offered with extended warranties and/or limited powertrain warranties

Certified used cars are typically newer models with less mileage. They typically come at a higher price than used cars, but they’re still more affordable than a new car. If you’re looking for more updated features for your Granger commutes, then you might want to buy a certified pre-owned vehicle.
