Chrysler Dealer Discusses the Differences Between Pre-Owned & Used Vehicles
Unlike a typical used vehicle, a certified pre-owned truck or car has undergone a thorough professional inspection of the transmission, brakes, engine, and heating and cooling system. Any necessary repairs are made, and the vehicle receives a manufacturer’s extended warranty. Cars and trucks must meet certain specifications to be considered for these programs, including mileage and age criteria.
CPO vehicles do not feature the “bumper-to-bumper” coverage that new cars do, but frequently come with perks such as free maintenance and roadside assistance. Low finance rates are usually available as well.
Used cars do not offer any of these benefits, though they are typically less expensive. Standard used vehicles are purchased as is, and may be “lemons.” Extremely low prices are a red flag of a vehicle that has undisclosed damage or issues. Performing an inspection or taking it to your mechanic is recommended before purchasing a non-certified used car. Researching your local laws is also suggested, as most states have strict rules about selling faulty used vehicles.
