Certified Pre-Owned vs. Used Cars – Which is Better? | CPO vs. Used

Certified Used Cars vs. Pre-Owned

Both Certified Pre-Owned and used vehicles have a lot to offer Monticello buyers, so the one you choose may come down to a few key points like:

  • Cost of Purchase: Certified Pre-Owned cars tend to be newer vehicles in like-new condition, so the cost of purchase is naturally higher than a used vehicle. In some cases, you can lease a certified pre-owned car. However, it’s rare to find used car leases for other models.
  • Warranty Protection: Certified Pre-Owned vehicles offer buyers protection comparable to many new vehicle warranties. Used vehicles are often sold as-is.
  • Resale Value: The resale value of a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle may be higher thanks to the vehicle’s inspection and reconditioning process.
  • Variety: Used vehicles run a wide gambit of makes, models, and years offering drivers a bigger selection of types and price points when making their final decision.
