Why Buy Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles?

What does certified pre-owned mean? And why you should buy certified pre-owned Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Wagoneer vehicles? While used and certified pre-owned are both vehicles that have been previously owned, CPO vehicles have a number of benefits for Mokena drivers. Below, our Bettenhausen CDJR experts will break down the CPO benefits and the differences between CPO vs. used cars.

What to Know About Buying a Used Car

We all know that used vehicles are cars, trucks, and SUVs that have had previous owners. Because these various makes and models come in different model years, with different mileage numbers, and vastly different conditions, they’re priced lower than the cost of new vehicles—we even have some used cars for sale under $15,000. Are used models with, say, 100,000 miles on them worth it? While a car with 100,000 miles or more may seem like a risk, the truth is that some vehicles can last for hundreds of thousands of miles with routine maintenance and care. If you want to buy an affordable vehicle with a lot of miles on it, remember these tips:

  • Thoroughly inspect any used vehicle you’re considering and take it for a test drive before making an offer.
  • Discuss any issues in terms of vehicle condition or performance that arise, to ensure the vehicle is fit for your needs and safe to drive.
  • Some cars and SUVs can last more than 200,000 miles with proper care and maintenance.

Why Buy CPO Instead of Used?

What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned? CPO vehicles at Bettenhausen CDJR are part of the Chrysler Certified Pre-Owned program, which has strict requirements and adds peace of mind via special warranties—something you don’t get from used vehicles that aren’t in the CPO program. Though they usually cost more than used models, they’re more affordable than a new car. Since CPO vehicles are newer models with less mileage than the average used car, they’re a good way to upgrade your New Lenox commutes without breaking the bank.
