Differences Between a Used Car and a Certified Pre-Owned

If you’re in the market for a car, you’ll quickly realize you have several types of vehicles to choose from: new, pre-owned, and Certified Pre-Owned. For many drivers, choosing between a standard used car and a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is the way to go.

That’s often because used and CPO cars offer an excellent value proposition.

Benefits of Buying Used Jeep® SUVs and Used RAM trucks

The benefits of buying a used car aren’t limited to previously owned Jeep® models and RAM trucks. Rather, they extend to makes, models, and body styles of all sorts.

When you contact our Monticello, IN RAM dealership, we’ll tell you that avoiding the rapid depreciation new cars experience is one of the biggest advantages to buying a used car. Used cars typically have lower prices than new vehicles, and they’re usually less expensive to register and insure.

In many instances, drivers are able to step up to a higher trim or a different model when they purchase a used car. If you buy one of the vehicles in our used car inventory, you may discover that it has more features than you would have been able to afford had you purchased a comparable new vehicle.

Are you ready to enjoy the benefits pre-owned cars provide? If so, contact our Dodge finance center to see if you qualify for an auto loan.

The Added Benefits CPO Vehicles Offer

The Certified Pre-Owned cars on our lot share the benefits just mentioned with our standard used vehicles, and they add even more to the mix. Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with factory-backed coverage just like new cars do. CPO Dodge cars come with a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and a three-month/3,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, for example.

In addition, the CPO vehicles in our showroom come with free roadside assistance. They boast a complimentary three-month subscription to satellite radio too.

Arguably the greatest benefit to buying a Certified Pre-Owned car is peace of mind. To earn a spot in our CPO inventory, a vehicle must pass a 125-point inspection performed by a factory-trained technician. To qualify for the CPO program, an automobile must be from the last five model years and have less than 75,000 miles on its odometer.
