Hand opening car door

If you’re in the market for a new-to-you vehicle to refresh your drives through and beyond Cumming, you may have noticed the many available options for sale. You could opt for a brand new vehicle, but there are also used and certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles to choose from. So what’s the difference between used and certified pre-owned models? Learn more about what sets these options apart with Andean Chevrolet, and discover what route is best for your current situation and driving needs!

Benefits of Buying a Pre-Owned Vehicle

A pre-owned model comes with many alluring benefits for Cumming car-buyers, including:

  • No drive-off-the-lot depreciation
  • Lower price points overall
  • Lower or no sales tax
  • More room to negotiate
  • And more!

Since you’re already in the market for a pre-owned vehicle, you are likely well aware of these perks. Next, let’s discuss the advantages of CPO vs. used models.

CPO vs. Used Cars: What’s the Difference?

While a used vehicle is synonymous with a pre-owned vehicle, a certified pre-owned vehicle has a different status. To be deemed certified pre-owned, the vehicle must meet or exceed many strict qualification standards. Opt for a CPO model from Andean Chevrolet, and drive with confidence knowing the vehicle:

  • Passed a 172-point inspection conducted by a factory-trained technician
  • Comes with a free full vehicle history report
  • Is a newer model with low mileage and modern features
  • Includes services via the CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program
  • Is covered by the Extended Powertrain Limited Warranty and Extended New Car Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty
