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

2022 Lexus ES


Are you wondering, “what’s the difference between used and certified pre-owned?” A lot of drivers ask this question. The main difference between the two is when comparing CPO vs. used, there’s an additional level of vetting and more guarantees when buying a CPO vehicle. Lexus of Cherry Hill has a guide for you on the CPO vs. used comparison and if you’re looking for a vehicle from one of these two classes, you’ll be happy to know that we’ve got plenty of both just waiting for Voorhees!

Used Car Buying: What You Need to Know

Used cars have been owned by someone else before and they have considerable variation in make, model, year, mileage, and more. Because of these variances and the fact that they’ve had previous owners, they’re more affordable compared to new and CPO vehicles. Many Moorestown car shoppers will be pleased to know that we’ve got tons of budget buys waiting for thrifty car shoppers.

Buying a CPO Car: What You Need to Know

Certified pre-owned vehicles have had previous owners, but they aren’t the same as the standard used cars you see on used car lots. CPO vehicles are thoroughly inspected and have the backing of a manufacturer warranty. Not only that, they’ve been subjected to a rigorous inspection completed by a certified technician. They’re the cream of the crop when it comes to Philadelphia used cars. This is what you can expect from a CPO vehicle:

  • A relatively recent model year
  • Generally less than 80,000 miles on the odometer
  • A multi-point inspection
  • An extended warranty and/or limited powertrain warranty

A certified pre-owned vehicle will be a newer model with less mileage. This implies a higher price point than used cars but a lower price point than new cars. If you’re looking for nearly-new features out of your used vehicle, CPO might be the choice for you.
