Used vs Certified Pre-Owned

Used vs Certified Pre-Owned

Used and certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles are popular choices with drivers seeking a great deal in Jenkintown, Abington, Glenside, or Philadelphia, PA. Beyond their similarity of having at least one previous owner, there are some key differences to consider between used and CPO.

To help you choose, our team at Faulkner Nissan Jenkintown has compiled this comprehensive comparison between used vs. certified pre-owned vehicles.

What Is a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

Used vs Certified Pre-OwnedAt face value, used and pre-owned both mean the vehicle in question has had at least one previous owner. Pre-owned vehicles at our dealership can be from any manufacturer and offer many benefits when you’re looking for a new ride and can often save you more money than buying new. Available financing assistance with both pre-owned and CPO listings is readily accessible through our website.

A certified pre-owned vehicle comes with a little more TLC and updated components. First and foremost, all CPO vehicles go through an extensive vetting process. Part of this process is a multi-point inspection that includes replacing any worn or broken parts with manufacturer-grade components.

Buying a CPO vehicle adds peace of mind to your purchase through extra benefits. When compared to going with a used ride, you’ll get more bang for your buck.

The Benefits of a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

To help paint a more vivid picture of what a CPO vehicle can offer, we’ve outlined the benefits that come with the Nissan Certified Pre-Owned program. By signing with us for your certified pre-owned Nissan, you’ll join our family of drivers who get behind the wheel each day knowing their vehicle is fully covered.

After you sign, our team will provide ongoing assistance via the Nissan Certified Pre-Owned program. Among the many features of the Nissan CPO program are exclusive perks, such as:

• 24-hour Roadside Assistance
• 7-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty
• Free CARFAX™ Vehicle History Report™
• Available Security+Plus® Extended Protection Plan

The Benefits of a Used Vehicle

Used vs Certified Pre-OwnedThere are times when the best option is to shop for a used vehicle. If you’re shopping for a fledgling driver, a used car or SUV can be a great starter vehicle. With a used vehicle, you’re able to save money while teaching your teenager how to properly care for their own ride.

Going the used route is one of the simplest ways to find a car or SUV, too. Perhaps you don’t need the extra bells and whistles that come with a CPO vehicle because you already have your own coverage. Or maybe you just want to open up your options.

With a pre-owned vehicle, you’ll likely have many more options on the lot than if you were to shop for a brand-new ride. Because drivers are constantly trading up, you may be able to stretch your dollar and find a used vehicle above the base trim.
