Find an in-depth answer to “What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned?” today with the experts from Land Rover Akron! We’ll help you compare CPO vs. used vehicles and all of their benefits so that you can decide for yourself which option checks all your boxes.

CPO vs. Used Vehicles Comparison

While many Massillon car buyers often think they only have the option to choose new or pre-owned vehicles, a certified pre-owned vehicle could also be a smart choice. Certified pre-owned vehicles typically provide the best of both worlds between new and standard used options. So, what is the difference between used and certified pre-owned then? Continue reading below for more information:

Used Vehicles

Used vehicles can vary in make, model, year, and mileage. This is because there are often no restrictions and specifications set forth by an OEM with a standard pre-owned vehicle. Usually, this means you’ll get to browse through a comprehensive selection of used vehicles to find one that’s perfect for your Green adventures. Other things you should know about pre-owned vehicles include:

  • While there aren’t any specific standards that pre-owned vehicles have to follow, we regularly hand-pick many of the ones in our inventory to ensure that you’re getting a high-quality ride.
  • Buying a used vehicle elsewhere? Be sure to set money aside for additional repairs that can come up when you purchase a pre-owned vehicle from a different dealership.
  • There are often no mileage restrictions to a standard pre-owned vehicle. So, just know that a high-mileage used ride can still be a good option as long as it has been properly serviced.

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

Certified pre-owned vehicles are similar to standard used vehicles in that they have previous owners. However, what sets them apart are the specifications set forth by the manufacturer, which in this case would be Land Rover, to ensure that you’re getting a pre-owned ride that’s still high-quality. Some requirements of CPO Land Rover vehicles include:

  • Must pass a rigorous 165-point inspection
  • Needs to have less than 60,000 miles
  • Can’t be more than 5 years old
  • Comes with either a one year/unlimited mile limited warranty or a two year/100,000-mile limited warranty*
