Certified Pre-Owned or CPO cars might look expensive compared to other used cars, but there’s a reason for that; they’re inspected and checked to ensure that it’s a quality car. But if you’re looking to buy a new car, a CPO car will look like a bargain. |
Here’s how a CPO offer compares to either a new car or a used car.
CPO vs. New:
New cars have a ton of intangible benefits. They always have that spiffy new car smell, and the wonderful feeling of it arriving to you with no miles on the clock. Furthermore a new car warranty is pretty solid, and covers the car pretty nicely for at least three years. You also have the peace of mind that the car is brand new, and hasn’t been abused or mistreated prior to you buying it. Unfortunately, all that convenience and peace of mind comes at a price, not to mention the depreciation hit that occurs as soon as you drive the car off the lot. Some new car buyers can see a 40 percent drop in value off their car during the first three years of ownership.
A CPO car compares favorably to buying a new car, and comes without that huge depreciation hit. Just like a new car, a CPO car is bought from a dealer, and gets a pre-delivery inspection. However, while a new car’s inspection is pretty minor, involving unwrapping and unpacking the car, a CPO car is inspected more thoroughly. Of course it needs to be, since it was owned by someone else, and has already driven some miles.
