Why Should You Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

An extended warranty, roadside assistance, and scheduled dealer maintenance can all be included with a CPO label.

When considering a certified pre-owned vehicle, there are several factors to consider. First, they are typically more expensive than other used non-certified cars. At the very least, the dealer will want to recoup the CPO fee they pay to the manufacturer on such a vehicle, which can range from a few hundred dollars to more than $1,000, in addition to their standard profit on a used car. CPO sales have been at record levels for several years, allowing dealers to charge much higher prices for these CPO vehicles.
