Certified Pre-Owned or a Used Car?
When it comes time to get behind the wheel of a new-to-you vehicle, you have several options. One option is certified pre-owned, while another option is used. To learn if certified pre-owned or used is right for you, keep reading.
A certified pre-owned vehicle is a like-new vehicle for a pre-owned price. Certified pre-owned vehicles are typically three years of age or newer and low mileage. In order to earn the certified pre-owned label, they must undergo intense multi-point inspections performed by manufacturer-trained mechanics. Oftentimes, certified pre-owned vehicles also come with impressive warranties. Shopping for a certified pre-owned vehicle can provide you with significant peace of mind.
However, certified pre-owned vehicles are a little on the expensive side. If you’re on a tight budget, a used car may be better suited for your needs. Used cars are cars that have had at least one previous owner. These cars are usually sold by the previous owner to a dealership. The used car market is extensive, with endless options of makes, models, years, mileage, body styles, colors, enhancements, and so on available to you. The chances of you finding something that works for your budget and your lifestyle are high when shopping used. However, used vehicles are not as trustworthy as certified pre-owned vehicles. If you find a car you like, you may want a mechanic to inspect it before you go ahead with the sale, just to make sure the car is reliable and worth your money.
Both certified pre-owned vehicles and used vehicles have their perks. Once you’ve decided which is right for you, you’re ready to visit NY Luxury Motors!
