Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

When it comes time to get a new car, the choice about what kind of car can be difficult.

Not only that, but choosing between buying new, buying used, or leasing can be even more difficult. Thankfully, Dick Dyer Toyota is here to help give you a few reasons why you’d want to consider buying Certified Pre-Owned.

What are CPO Cars?

First, you might be wondering what “Certified Pre-Owned” means. The term “CPO” is often used to refer to a car that has been previously owned, but has gone through inspections and is deemed worthy to be part of a CPO program, like the Toyota Certified Pre-Owned program.


Why Buy CPO vs. Used

If you’ve already decided that a used car is the way to go, you should consider going down the CPO path. Here’s why.


You know that you’re getting quality with a CPO car. That’s because they have to go through rigorous inspections first to meet the program’s standards and has necessary parts replaced. It will assure you’ll get a quality car whereas if you bought used, you won’t get this same guarantee.


Buying a used car from Joe-from-Craigslist won’t give you a warranty but a CPO program will. Toyota’s CPO program gives you 1 year/12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage, plus 7-years/100,000 miles of powertrain coverage. The latter is from the original sale date, but it still gives you a better warranty than a typical used car.


Why Buy CPO vs. New

So why buy a CPO car when you can buy a new car?

Bang for your Buck

Obviously, you’ll pay less for a CPO car than you would for a new car. But you’re also getting more for your money. Say you love the new Prius, but you can’t afford it. If you go just one or two years older, you’ll get a car similar to what you want for guaranteed quality and less money.
