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

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Rear

Are you asking, “What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned?” You’re not the only Philadelphia driver interested in that answer. While both are technically used models, there are some important differences to consider when comparing CPO vs. used cars. Today, the experts here at Land Rover West Chester will help you explore both options to find the best fit for your budget and automotive needs. Read on below to find out what is the difference between used and certified pre-owned vehicles!

CPO vs. Used Cars: Buying a Used Vehicle

Used cars are extremely popular among Exton divers. These models have had at least one previous owner and can vary greatly in terms of make, model, year, and more. Due to these variables, used cars are often more affordable than new and CPO models. If you’re looking for a true bargain for your new teen driver, for instance, you’ll be pleasantly surprised when browsing our pre-owned specials

Another great variation among used vehicles is mileage. While you may shy away from high-mileage used cars, in many cases, they represent great investments since modern vehicles can run smoothly for hundreds of thousands of miles with routine care. No matter what vehicle catches your eye on our West Chester lot, keep the following in mind when shopping used:

  • While automakers don’t require that traditional used cars be inspected before a sale, Land Rover West Chester works hard to ensure that each model we sell is of the highest quality. However, be sure to show caution when buying a pre-owned vehicle from a private seller. 
  • Discuss any issues you notice as you inspect your intended purchase. You can either walk away or negotiate the price to accommodate repairs. 
  • With proper care, many vehicles can last well beyond 200,000 miles. So, high-mileage models can be a worthwhile investment, especially if you’re on a tight budget. 

CPO vs. Used Cars: Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Land Rover Vehicle

Certified pre-owned (CPO) Land Rover models are similar to standard used cars in the sense that they’ve had previous owners. From there, however, CPO vehicles have many unique benefits. Each CPO Land Rover model we sell is thoroughly inspected and tested to ensure premium quality. What’s more, these models represent the cream of the crop, being held to strict standards, including:

Since CPO models come with fewer miles and additional benefits, they’re generally more expensive than used cars. However, both options are still more affordable than their new vehicle counterparts. So, if you’re looking for the right model at the right price, our used inventory likely has exactly what you desire!
