Used or Certified Pre-Owned: Which Is Right for You?

Used vs Certified Pre-owned 

L&L Motor is proud to offer a wide selection of new and certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles when a new car is not in your budget-or on your wish list. But what is the difference between used and CPO?

While we stand by all previously owned vehicles on our lot, CPO vehicles come with a little more guarantee for peace of mind. For a vehicle to qualify as certified pre-owned, it has to meet a number of strict criteria. For example, a car must be relatively new, typically in production for fewer than six years. It must also meet mileage requirements; if it has excessive mileage, it won't qualify for our CPO program.

On top of that, all used vehicles undergo a stringed multi-point vehicle inspection by our certified technicians. To earn the CPO title, it must pass the inspection with flying colors.

CPO vehicles are also offered with a warranty, which you will not get when you buy used. While the warranty won't be as extensive as a new car warranty, it will give you added peace of mind when driving it off the lot. Buying CPO also gives you access to a free vehicle history report so you can learn about how the car was previously driven and maintained, what accidents it was involved in, and how many owners it has had.

For all used and CPO vehicles, we encourage you to take an extensive test drive to make sure it is the right fit for you. We also recommend you take a model you are considering to a trusted mechanic; while we do extensive inspections, we know it will give you added piece of mind to get advice from a third party.
