What is the Difference Between Used and Certified Pre-Owned?

Pre-Owned Vehicles

What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned? When comparing CPO vs. used, it is important to do your homework. When you’re in the market for a Toyota vehicle, you can’t go wrong with a reliable used Toyota or a certified pre-owned model. There are many Chandler and Gilbert drivers that enjoy both types of pre-owned Toyota vehicles. Both CPO and used will fall under the “used” category, but there are a few key differences between used and certified pre-owned that Mesa car shoppers should know about when browsing around for their next best vehicle.

CPO vs. Used: What to Know

For starters, used vehicles are priced at a lower cost than new Toyota vehicles and certified pre-owned vehicles. Since these are not new vehicles, car buyers will not have to worry about depreciation. Keep in mind that while a vehicle with 100,000 miles or more may seem like a risk, many Toyota vehicles can last more than 200,000 miles with routine care and maintenance. Some things to consider include:

  • Inspect any used vehicle you’re considering and take it for a test drive before making an offer.
  • Discuss any issues in terms of vehicle condition or performance that arise, to make sure the vehicle is fit for your needs and safe to drive.

What to Know About Buying a CPO Car

Certified pre-owned vehicles can take part in the Berge Toyota’s CPO program, where specific requirements must be met. These requirements include:

  • The vehicle is within six years of the current model year.
  • The vehicle has 85,000 miles or less on it.
  • It has passed a 160 multi-point inspection.
  • CPO vehicles come with extended warranties and/or limited powertrain warranties.

Toyota CPO vehicles come with a comprehensive warranty plan that includes bumper-to-bumper coverage, powertrain coverage, roadside assistance, and more! A CPO vehicle is an excellent middle-ground for drivers who want the peace of mind of a new vehicle and the savings of a used vehicle.
