If you’re curious as to what the difference is between certified pre-owned and used vehicles, you aren’t alone. While both CPO and used are “used” vehicles, there are a few key distinctions between the two. Whether you’re driving in Delray Beach or Wellington, be sure you know the difference so you can get the best deal on your next Jaguar SUV or sedan!

Things to Know When Buying Used

In short, a used vehicle is a vehicle that has been previously driven by another owner. This can vary in terms of model year, mileage, and number of previous owners, and as a result used cars are priced lower than new vehicles. Because they aren’t new cars, Boca Raton drivers also don’t have to worry about depreciation over time. Although choosing a pre-owned Jaguar model may seem risky, in fact used cars can last for hundreds of thousands of miles if they are properly cared for. However, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Carefully inspect any used vehicles you are considering purchasing, and take it for a test drive before committing to anything.
  • Many Jaguar SUVs and cars can last more than 200,000 miles with proper maintenance.
  • Discuss any issues in terms of vehicle condition or performance that arise, to ensure the vehicle is fit for your needs and safe to drive

How is a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar Model Different

A certified pre-owned vehicle is a used car that has met certain requirements, including a multi-point inspection offered with extended warranties. Certified used cars are typically newer models with less mileage as well. They typically come at a higher price than used cars, but they’re still more affordable than a new car. If you’re looking for more updated features for your Boca Raton commutes, then you might want to buy a certified pre-owned vehicle.
