The Difference Between Certified Pre-Owned and Used Cars
When you are in the market for a new car, one of your first decisions is whether you're getting a new car or a pre-owned car. If you decide on pre-owned, you then have to choose between certified pre-owned and used vehicles. Not sure what the difference is? Don't worry you're not alone. At Hawk Cadillac, you have the option to choose between certified pre-owned and used Cadillacs near Plainfield.
What is Certified Pre-Owned?
Certified pre-owned means that the vehicle is tested and approved by the dealership. Backed by the manufacturer, the dealership will complete an in-depth inspection of the car and repair any damaged or worn parts. A certified pre-owned car also comes with an extended warranty and a number of other services, such as 24-hour roadside assistance and a detailed vehicle history report. This vehicle can also be serviced at any Cadillac dealership nationwide.
What is the Difference?
One of the main differences between certified pre-owned and used vehicles is that the certified pre-owned cars come with an extended warranty, while used cars usually only offers the remainder of the factory warranty, if it is transferable. Another difference is cost. Certified pre-owned vehicles usually cost more, but they do come with extras. If you wanted your used car to be thoroughly checked, there would be an extra out of pocket charge for a service that the certified pre-owned car comes with.
