Should you Buy Acura Certified Pre-Owned or Used?

February 3rd, 2022 by

In the car buying process, you have the option of buying a new car or a used car. If you choose a used car your options are between a used car or an Acura Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) car. What is the difference between Used and Acura Certified Pre-Owned? How do you know which one to choose? Although there is no right or wrong choice, there are pros and cons to each.

Acura Certified Pre-Owned

Used Acura MDX and more If you decide to purchase an Acura Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, there are some pros. A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is minimally used and has also gone through inspection by our dealership. CPO vehicles usually have fewer issues, fewer miles, and don’t require as much repair as pre-owned cars. Even though a CPO car has fewer issues, it may come with free maintenance, roadside assistance, and other benefits. While a CPO car is still used, it is suggested that you bring it to a mechanic occasionally. CPO cars may be more expensive due to the fact that they are pre-inspected and have a warranty.

The benefits of buying a Certified Pre-Owned Acura over a used Acura are myriad. When you choose Acura Certified Pre-Owned, you’ll get 7 years/100,000 miles Powertrain Coverage, 2 years/100,000 miles Non-Powertrain Coverage, complimentary first scheduled maintenance, Acura Roadside Assistance, and a free introductory AcuraLink® subscription.

If you’re looking for an older used Acura with a lot of the same benefits as a Certified Pre-Owned Acura, Precision Used might be for you.
