Pros and Cons of Buying a Certified Car

Pro 4 – Many pre-owned vehicles include buyback protection if you, being the buyer, later discovers the car had flood, fire damage or a rolled back odometer.
Con 1 – Vehicle history reports don’t include all accidents, so you might have zero information how it was treated by the previous owner, even if they have changed the oil or not.
Con 2 – Some of the CPO cars used to work heavily on roads. It means the owners & the drivers didn’t think about engine, suspension etc. So you have no idea about the life of such things in CPO cars.
Con 3 -If you are looking at late CPO cars then it probably has original battery, rotors & brake pads. These items are not covered by the CPO as these are classified as “Wear Items”. So, you have to pay for these replacements.
Con 4 – The life of CPO & used cars are many times the same. It depends on the make & model that you are buying. Very old cars don’t have a life more than 4 years & the same is followed by used cars depending on it’s usage.
