According to, certified pre-owned vehicles represent over 40% of all pre-owned vehicle sales in the U.S. How do you know, as a consumer, if a certified pre-owned vehicle is the right choice for you?

One major draw of a certified pre-owned program is the guarantee of a like-new vehicle, with an extended manufacturer warranty and many times, special rates and incentives that you don't typically find on non-certified pre-owned vehicles. In order to offer these benefits, the vehicle itself must meet stringent inspection, time and mileage criteria to ensure that the customer gets the most value for their dollar. For the customer that wants a specific brand, model or feature that they just can't afford on a brand new model, purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle that is only a few years old with low miles may be the best way to drive off in the car they want.
