Two Kinds of Quality

When you’re looking for a used car, you have two options to choose from: pre-owned or certified pre-owned. But for many prospective customers out there, one is hard to distinguish from the other. So today, Brunswick Auto Mart wants to take the guesswork away from those who aren’t sure, so you can figure out which kind of vehicle is right for you.

Pre-Owned Vehicles

When it comes to a pre-owned vehicle, you’re getting a car like a Jeep Cherokee that has been cleared for sale through our car dealership. That includes a thorough inspection to make sure that the car is free of problems and defects. That means everything from interior detailing to vital powertrain components. There’s always a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles available on our lot, so make sure to check our pre-owned specials to find a deal that’s right for you!

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

So if pre-owned vehicles are already tested to ensure their quality, then what’s the difference in the case of certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles? Put simply, certified pre-owned vehicles are also protected by a special vetting process by the auto manufacturer themselves. CPO vehicles are the newest models that can be considered pre-owned, and as such, can be under the original warranty they came with when they were new. In the case of Chrysler CPO vehicles, they come with a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty from the date of the vehicle’s first sale. There's also as a 3-month/3,000-mile maximum care warranty which begins the day the vehicle is bought as a CPO vehicle, and covers pretty much all vehicle components that could need prepare. There are also several other options available to add to or extend your coverage as well, but you should talk to a Brunswick Auto Mart financing expert to explore those options.
