5 reasons to buy a certified pre-owned car


Buying a new car can be a huge expense, especially when your new investment depreciates in value as soon as you drive it off the lot. At the same time, buying a second-hand car from a friend of a friend or a classified site can be a bit too risky for some buyers.

Luckily, there’s an in-between option that allows you to get yourself a great car while also having the peace of mind that your new ride won’t be a lemon. Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles strike this balance.

What exactly is a Certified Pre-Owned car you ask? Well, it’s a type of used vehicle, but what makes it different is that it has been inspected or refurbished, but more importantly it’s been certified by a manufacturer or other certified authority.

As a Vancouverite, you’ve got a great resource for CPO vehicles at Audi Capilano. Their Pre-Owned Sales Event is the perfect opportunity to check out some beautiful cars at great prices and is taking place from February 18-28, 2015.

Besides finding the perfect ride at Audi Capilano, here are 5 reasons to buy a CPO:

Why You Should Buy a CPO Vehicle

By Vancity Buzz

Looking for a new ride? Audi Capilano has a great selection of CPO vechicles. Here's why you should consider snapping one up.

  • You Know Exactly What's Been Fixed or Refurbished

    By Vancity Buzz

    With a CPO vehicle, you'll be able to see exactly what's been repaired. With a detailed document explaining and detailing the car's history, you will be aware of potential future issues.

  • You Can Get Financing

    By Vancity Buzz

    Unlike a used car from a classified site, a CPO is bought from a dealership. This means you can get financing through the dealership rather than forking out cash upfront.

  • You Reap the Benefits of the Warranty

    By Vancity Buzz

    Although most cars come with a warranty, you may not always know the exact terms, especially when buying second hand. A CPO vehicle has a specific CPO warranty, usually up to a certain mileage.

  • You'll Know it Meets the Standards

    By Vancity Buzz

    CPO programs are regimented in what they look for and more importantly, what they allow in a CPO vehicle. Cars have to adhere to certain guidelines meaning work and care have been put into them.

  • You'll Get a Better Price

    By Vancity Buzz

    It's obvious, but it has to be stated. A CPO will always be priced better than a new version of the same car. This means you'll have a little extra cash to take a road trip in your new ride.

Convinced? Head to Audi Capilano for some of the best Certified Pre-Owned vehicles around. You can find out more and check out the vehicles at their Pre-Owned Sales event happening from February 18-28. More details can be found online.
