What is the Difference Between Pre-Owned and Certified Pre-Owned?

Woman Typing on Calcilator

You’re not the only one who’s interested in knowing the difference between pre-owned vs. CPO vehicles. Both categories are considered “used,” however, there are a few important distinctions between a Mercedes-Benz pre-owned vehicle and a Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicle that Mesa drivers should be aware of when shopping for their next SUV, car, or truck.

What to Know About Buying a Pre-Owned Car

Vehicles that have previously been driven by other owners are considered “pre-owned” vehicles. Many times, these vehicles will vary in their number of previous owners, as well as mileage and model years. Consequently, these vehicles are priced at a significantly lower cost than certified pre-owned and new vehicles on the lot. However, at Mercedes-Benz of North Scottsdale we offer pre-owned vehicle specials for our drivers near the Phoenix area. Keep in mind: these vehicles are not new to you, therefore, you won’t have to worry about depreciation! It may seem like a risk purchasing a Mercedes-Benz pre-owned vehicle that has over 100,000 miles on it — in all honesty, some of these vehicles can last for a couple hundred thousand miles with routine maintenance checks. Here are a few things to remember:

  • Be sure to meticulously inspect any pre-owned vehicle you’re considering, then take it for a test drive to test its performance before making an offer.
  • Bring any concerns to the attention of the seller regarding the vehicle’s performance or condition to ensure that the car, SUV, or truck meets your safety needs.
  • With routine maintenance and proper care, your pre-owned vehicle may last more than 200,000 miles.

What to Know About Purchasing a CPO Vehicle

Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicles become part of the CPO inventory offered at Mercedes-Benz of North Scottsdale when certain requirements are met, which include:

  • Rigorous vehicle inspection
  • Must be less than six years old with fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer
  • CARFAX® Vehicle History Report
  • And more!

Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are late-model cars, meaning buyers get some of the latest features from the brand. These models are more expensive than a Mercedes-Benz pre-owned car but less expensive than a brand-new car. When you’re ready to upgrade your Scottsdale commutes, explore the CPO warranties and benefits that come with a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz.
