Certified Pre-Owned vs Used: the Pros and Cons

March 16th, 2020 by

Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle comes with great benefits and assurances compared to a non-certified used car. For starters, Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles include a thorough and rigorous inspection process, vehicle history report, and 24-hour roadside assistance. Certified Pre-Owned also tends to offer warranty coverage and special financing; both which come standard on all Certified Pre-Owned vehicles at Coastal Chevrolet Cadillac Nissan.

Used vehicles on the other hand aren’t as thoroughly inspected as CPO vehicles are but are generally cheaper upfront, long term costs however aren’t covered as much as with a certified vehicle. Chevrolet, Cadillac and Nissan each come with a multitude of value both with upfront financing options, long term ownership warranties and additional dealership perks.
