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

man handing over car keys

You’re not the only one asking the question, “What’s the difference between CPO vs. used vehicles?” Both categories are essentially “used,” but there are valuable distinctions between used and certified pre-owned vehicles drivers in Rye and Stamford should be aware of. Below is our guide to figuring out those distinctions so you can pick the vehicle that best suits you and your budget.

What to Know About Buying a Used Car

Cars that have been previously driven by other owners are considered used vehicles. These vehicles can vary in mileage, the number of past owners, and model year. Due to this, these are priced significantly lower than certified pre-owned vehicles and new vehicles. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, purchasing a used vehicle in Greenwich might be the best route to take. Additionally, since your vehicle isn’t new, depreciation won’t be a worry for you!

If you’re worried about running the risk of purchasing a car with 100,000 miles on it, however, some of these cars can last hundreds of thousands of miles with regular maintenance and proper care. Remember these few details:

  • Carefully inspect any used vehicle you’re interested in, then test drive the vehicle before purchasing.
  • If any vehicle condition or performance issues arise, speak to the seller to ensure the vehicle meets your safety needs.
  • With proper service and maintenance, certain SUVs and cars last more than 200,000 miles.

What to Know About Buying a CPO Car

Once a vehicle meets our CPO qualifications, it becomes part of the Certified pre-owned program at Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich. Here are some general markers for CPO Mercedes-Benz vehicles:

  • Rigorous vehicle inspection
  • Must be less than six years old with fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer
  • CARFAX® Vehicle History Report

CPO vehicles are late-model vehicles with less mileage. They’re usually more expensive than used cars, but less expensive than brand-new cars. When you’re ready to have your features upgraded for your New Canaan commutes, consider purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle.
