Used cars are a great way to save big on buying your next vehicle, but the downside is that buying used comes with its own set of risks. When you find that perfect used car at a low price, you might be worried if it’s too good to be true, with a host of undetectable mechanical failures waiting under the surface. You can bypass these concerns by purchasing certified pre-owned vehicles instead of used ones. Certified pre-owned, or CPO, programs are run by auto manufacturers so customers have access to more reliable previously-loved cars.
Take Chevy, for example. Chevrolet requires all vehicles used in their CPO program to be less than six years old and to have less than 75,000 miles on the odometer. In addition, customers get benefits like a warranty, a schedule maintenance plan that covers two visits, a free Vehicle History Report, and more. The way it works is that Chevy takes a used vehicle that’s been given back to the dealership and subjects it to a 172-point inspection. If the vehicle passes the tests, it gets certified.
We have a whole host of certified pre-owned vehicles on our lot here at Bill Roberts Chevrolet. If you want an option for buying a new ride that is affordable and reliable, opt for Chevrolet’s CPO program.
