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

Looking for a used car in Hurst? The modern car market generally gives you two options when it comes to used cars, and many find themselves asking, “What is the difference between Used and Certified Pre-Owned vehicles?” Essentially, Certified-Pre Owned vehicles are used vehicles that offer you some of the same security and benefits of a new vehicle, including an inspection from the manufacturer. Essence Maserati covers CPO vs. used vehicles in depth below!



CPO vs. Used: Benefits of CPO 

Every car manufacturer, including Maserati, has its own CPO program. These essentially offer Dallas and Fort Worth drivers the savings benefits of used cars with some of the same guarantees of a new car. You’ll find a lot of common variables in CPO programs, including the Maserati CPO program:

  • Later model years, usually within five years of the current model year
  • Low mileage, usually with a cap around 80,000 to 100,000 miles 
  • Multi-point inspection from the manufacturer 
  • Warranties, including an unlimited mileage warranty in Maserati CPO vehicles 

Used vs. CPO: Benefits of Used Vehicles 

So, what is the difference between used and Certified Pre-Owned in terms of price? Usually, Plano who are on a budget will be better off with a standard used vehicle. You’ll find that they don’t come with the multi-point inspections, so you’ll have to take some precautions as you’re choosing your vehicle: 

  • Mileage: Even a vehicle with more than 100,000 miles on it can be good to go. Make sure to look at the vehicle’s driving history and maintenance history. 
  • Repairs: Ask about what parts of your vehicle have been inspected and replaced. 
  • Service: A trusted service center can really help drivers make sure their used vehicle stays in good shape down the road. 

Whichever you choose, it’s always wise to look up pre-owned vehicle specials at a dealership like Essence Maserati, which include both used and CPO vehicles
