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

2020 Jaguar USA F-PACE

 

A used vehicle is one that has been previously owned, whereas a certified pre-owned car is one that has been inspected and certified by the dealership. The certification process differs between manufacturers, but usually includes checking the fluids, tire pressure, lights and other components to ensure they are in good working condition. Vehicles must meet strict qualifications in order to be considered for certification, and those that pass are offered with additional benefits and protections.

So, what is the difference between used and certified pre-owned? A closer look at the benefits of the Jaguar CPO program can give you a better idea of what to expect.

What Should You Know About Buying a CPO Vehicle?

First things first: Jaguar CPO vehicles are reconditioned by a team of professionals who specialize in the brand. The technicians start their work as soon as a vehicle is delivered to the dealership by performing a rigorous inspection process. Here’s a closer look at the qualifications that all Jaguar CPO vehicles must meet:

  • Jaguar CPO vehicles must be no more than five years old. They must also have less than 60,000 miles.
  • A multi-point inspection is performed to ensure the vehicle meets safety and mechanical standards. The Jaguar inspection covers 165+ points.
  • Only original Jaguar parts are used for certification and reconditioning. All major systems and functions must be fully operational.

The biggest difference between used and certified pre-owned models is that CPO vehicles come with warranty coverage (along with other benefits). Jaguar CPO vehicles are covered for up to seven years or 100,000 miles from the original in-service date, and they also include 24/7 Roadside Assistance coverage.

CPO vs. Used: When Should You Buy Used?

If you’re comparing CPO vs. used for your drives in Akron, you should know that used models vary much more widely in terms of cost, mileage, reliability, and value. Here’s a closer look at the reasons that some drivers might choose to buy used:

  • CPO cars are like new, and they tend to have higher price tags. By contrast, it’s usually possible to find a used car priced under $10K.
  • We hand-pick the used cars that go up for sale on our lot, and you can always take a used car to a mechanic if you’d like them to look over the vehicle before you buy.
  • Choosing to buy used instead of CPO gives you more options to consider. If you don’t need a car with low mileage or the latest features, buying used may simply be a better choice.
