What Are Certified Pre-Owned Cars?

So, what is a certified pre-owned car? As noted above, certified pre-owned vehicles are low-mileage, late-model cars that must pass a rigorous multi-point inspection in order to be certified. Once the vehicle has passed inspection, it is eligible for benefits such as warranty coverage, roadside assistance, special financing, and more. Every automaker has its own standards regarding their certified pre-owned vehicles, and the qualifications, scope of inspection, and benefits will differ depending on the auto brand you choose. Are certified pre-owned cars worth it? Spending a bit more to get a quality-assured, like-new vehicle that comes with warranty coverage and more, all for a fraction of the cost of a new car, can certainly be worth it to many drivers throughout the Cranston, RI area.
