To help drivers around the New Holland, Lancaster, and Lititz, PA, areas, figure out which type of pre-owned vehicle is best for them, we have put together this guide. Read on and find out which pre-owned vehicle type works best for you!

What Do Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles and Traditional Used Vehicles Have In Common?

Both CPO vehicles and traditional used vehicles are both types of pre-owned cars. This means that they have had at least one other owner before you. Both types of pre-owned vehicles can be sold at dealerships and are less expensive than a new vehicle.

These types can both be late-model vehicles. This means that they might have more recent tech and features. Pricing of pre-owned vehicles can be based on mileage and condition. You might even be able to afford a slightly higher trim level with these pre-owned vehicles than you would with a new one.

The Perks of a Traditional Used Car

With a traditional used car, one of the biggest advantages is options! You can shop around for a used vehicle that meets your needs with more flexibility than if you are shopping for one that must be Certified Pre-Owned by the manufacturer. You can search for whatever trim, model, body style, or year that you want.

Traditional used vehicles, like CPO vehicles, also often come with vehicle history reports. These reports can give you information on previous accidents, repairs, mileage, and title status. With this, you can get a look at what exactly you're getting when you purchase a used vehicle.

The Advantages of a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a used vehicle that has been inspected by a technician to meet certain manufacturers' standards. These vehicles must meet specific criteria to receive this certification, so every used vehicle will not be certified. CPO vehicles are found at dealerships that sell that manufacturer's vehicles.

A perk of CPO vehicles is that they will be under a certain year and mileage amount. This is often included in the list of requirements that Certified Pre-Owned vehicles must follow.

One of the best perks of a CPO vehicle is warranty coverage. When you buy a CPO vehicle, you get a manufacturer's warranty. These warranties might be slightly different depending on the vehicle or dealership. In addition to warranties, a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle often comes with roadside assistance or extended warranty coverage.
