What's the Difference Between Used and CPO?

Man and Woman Signing Contract

You’ve probably noticed that used cars fall into two categories: used and certified pre-owned. Certified pre-owned vehicles are in like-new condition, must pass a rigorous vehicle inspection, and come with perks like a used car warranty. By contrast, used cars are priced based on their condition, given a basic mechanical inspection, and don’t come with perks — but are less expensive. What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned when it comes to your budget and driving needs? Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of Chevrolet CPO vs. used vehicles.

Buying a Used Chevrolet Vehicle

While used vehicles aren’t in like-new condition, at Marine Chevrolet Cadillac we ensure that every vehicle is drivable and clean. Camp Lejeune-area drivers looking for a more affordable option can rest assured that when they purchase a used car from Marine Chevrolet Cadillac, they are buying quality. You’ll always find Chevrolet models in Kelly Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards, and regularly one of JD Power’s most awarded brands for reliability. Finding a great deal on a used vehicle doesn’t always mean choosing the lowest mileage. Look to other metrics for a better sense of future reliability:

  • Previous owner’s driving habits. Whether the car drove mostly on smooth Camp Lejeune highways or in Richlands traffic may have an impact on the transmission.
  • Timely routine maintenance. A car that followed its routine maintenance schedule is likely in better condition than a low-mileage vehicle that went a year or more between oil changes.
