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

2020 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Sedan

Pre-owned vehicles have had at least one previous owner. Certified pre-owned vehicles are pre-owned vehicles that have undergone an extensive multipoint inspection. If they pass the manufacturer’s criteria, they are offered for sale with numerous benefits and protections, including a warranty. But what is the difference between pre-owned and certified pre-owned as it pertains to Mercedes-Benz? We’ve covered everything you need to know.



CPO vs. Pre-Owned: Mercedes-Benz CPO Benefits

All pre-owned vehicles–including CPO models–tend to carry lower price tags than new models. However, only CPO vehicles offer benefits and protections that are comparable to those of their new counterparts. If you’re considering a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz, here’s what you’ll need to keep in mind:

  • In order to qualify for the program, a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz must have fewer than 75,000 miles. It must also be less than six years old.
  • If it meets these qualifications, it must then undergo an extensive multipoint inspection. Any component that is not up to the brand’s standards will be repaired or replaced. If this cannot take place, the model cannot be certified.
  • You’ll receive a Vehicle History Report with your purchase, so you can be absolutely certain that it’s been well cared for and maintained.
  • You’ll also receive whatever remains of the new Mercedes-Benz warranty. When this coverage expires, your one-year, unlimited-mileage CPO warranty kicks in.
  • You’ll enjoy complimentary roadside assistance for as long as you retain warranty coverage.
  • Last but not least, those who purchase a CPO Mercedes-Benz may be eligible for a 7-day/500-mile Exchange Privilege.

If you like the look of these benefits, we’re sure you’ll find even more to get excited about when you explore our CPO Mercedes-Benz special offers.

What to Know About Buying a Pre-Owned Car

Compared to certified pre-owned vehicles, pre-owned cars and SUVs tend to be less expensive. However, they don’t offer the same assurances and protections, so you’ll have to do more research to make sure you’re making a good investment.

Many drivers who choose pre-owned cars try to abide by the following guidelines:

  • If you buy a pre-owned car from a dealership, you can trust that the dealership will want to protect its reputation. If you buy from a private seller, you’ll receive no such assurances.
  • If you’re not working with a dealership or a person that you trust, never assume that a pre-owned vehicle has been fully inspected and repaired. Take it to a mechanic or a service center near South Riding before you buy.
  • Low-mileage pre-owned cars tend to carry higher price tags, but choosing a model with less wear and tear could help you save on maintenance costs and upkeep.

Some of the most dependable pre-owned cars are models that were once pre-owned as loaner vehicles! In fact, some say that buying a retired loaner is as close as you can get to buying new.
