Certified Pre-Owned vs. Used

Some Nickerson car shoppers may tend to group used vehicles and certified pre-owned vehicles in the same category when they’re on the hunt. The good news is that both options are budget-friendly, however, there are differences between the two.

  • Used vehicles will often be a little less expensive than certified pre-owned, and that is because they do not go through the thorough manufacturer-mandated testing that CPO vehicles do. Used vehicles often include very old and high-mileage cars.
  • CPO vehicles, on the other hand, come with warranty protections, are often available with special financing rates, and come from late-model vehicles with relatively low mileage.
