Used Vehicles vs. Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

Salesman talking to couple about cars

What are certified pre-owned vehicles and how are they different from used vehicles? The difference between the two is bigger than one might expect! While used vehicles are more often sold as-is, Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are thoroughly inspected by a team of certified technicians to bring the vehicle to a multi-point inspection threshold. With a certified pre-owned vehicle, you can essentially expect a like-new vehicle with a like-new warranty to protect you on York roads. Learn more about the differences between used and certified pre-owned benefits below with us at Jack Giambalvo Buick GMC!

Benefits of a Used Vehicle

While a CPO vehicle has a higher quality level across the board, buying or leasing a used vehicle with us around the York area can be a good investment, especially if you do the proper research. A well-made used vehicle can last up to 200,000 miles if properly maintained and cared for at one of our service centers. You can rest easy knowing that all of our used vehicles have been properly inspected before being put on our lot to be sold because we know that you deserve the best. 

Qualifications of a CPO vehicle

What are the benefits and advantages of a certified pre-owned vehicle in the York area? You can rest assured that your vehicle has been inspected to meet a certain standard of quality before being labeled as a certified pre-owned vehicle. Here are some of the qualifications needed:

  • The vehicle is ridden less than 80,000-10,000 miles
  • The model year is within five years of the current model year
  • The vehicle goes through a multi-point inspection before being certified
  • Offered with extended warranties and/or limited powertrain warranties
