Is Buying CPO Right For You?

Is Buying CPO Right For You? | Raisor Automart

Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles offer an exceptional value for young drivers. After all, who wouldn’t want to get a like-new vehicle at a major discount? Now all that’s left to do is answer one question: Is buying CPO right for you?


Certified Pre-Owned vehicles aren’t limited to luxury cars. Almost every automaker offers a CPO program designed to make newer vehicles more appealing to the average driver. CPO models are often cost thousands of dollars less than comparable brand new models.

That difference in price, plus a manufacturer-backed warranty, creates true value in CPO vehicles. Since CPO programs have a restriction on how old a vehicle can be, most vehicles will include newer technologies and more standard features, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Peace of Mind

Buying a used car can be a risk, especially if it isn’t covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. CPO cars often feature manufacturer-backed warranties that provide extra peace of mind. In order to enter the CPO program, a car must undergo an intense inspection. They also can’t have any record of collisions. Knowing that your car is solid and protected ensures you can hit the road with your friends after a hard semester of classes.

Special Deals

Manufacturers often put an emphasis on Certified Pre-Owned cars that results in special financing deals. Lenders, like banks and credit unions, tend to favor CPO cars over standard used models. As a result, both manufacturers and lenders may offer lower interest rates. In some cases, the rates may even match those of new cars.

To explore an extensive lineup of CPO models, come take a trip to Raisor Automart.
