Buying a vehicle is a big decision and the first decision that comes up is the condition of the car. You'll have to decide if you want a new, used or a certified pre-owned car. Here are some important considerations for each condition:
What to know about new cars
It is easier to shop for a new car. Firstly, you'll know that it will be in mint condition and that it has never been in a collision or abused. The downside is that it costs more.
There is a difference between used and certified pre-owned cars
A car requires an investment, and for those who are following a budget, buying used makes sense. Both used cars and certified pre-owned cars (CPO) have had previous owners and buying a used car from a dealer or private seller may be less costly initially. However, with a CPO car, you'll have a car that a dealership will stand behind, with a guarantee by the manufacturer that the vehicle meets a certain condition standard.
CPO cars typically cause fewer problems
This is because the CPO vehicle was returned to the original automaker or dealer while in excellent condition. Usually, it would be a leased vehicle, which usually has fewer miles on it, and is more likely to have been maintained by the previous owner or by a mechanic who is certified by the automaker.
