Pre-owned and Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles offer different experiences, both of which might be more valuable to some drivers than others. Are you wondering which option best suits your driving life? If so, let's take a closer look at how CPO and pre-owned vehicles compare, so you can have a better idea of what to expect when car shopping at your local Mercedes-Benz dealer.

The Benefits of Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz

Every CPO vehicle is considered pre-owned, although not every pre-owned car can earn the "certified" status that makes them stand out from the rest. To be certified, a vehicle generally has to be a recent-year model with low mileage. You won't find many 100,000-mile twenty-year-old clunkers sitting in the CPO section of your dealership.

A key factor is that each CPO Mercedes-Benz model in our inventory has passed a rigorous multi-point inspection. Once our manufacturer-trained technicians ensure a vehicle has met these minimum requirements, it can be registered as certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz instead of just pre-owned. You'll also receive a full vehicle history report with your CPO vehicle and a comprehensive extensive limited warranty coverage. This certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz warranty covers your powertrain for 12 months with unlimited miles.

Why is this valuable? Categorizing CPO vehicles helps dealerships separate higher-quality pre-owned options from the broader pool. Since CPO models are the only pre-owned vehicles that come with a long-term maintenance warranty, we are proud to provide our guests with extra peace of mind through this program.

When Might a Pre-Owned Car be Better for Me?

While many drivers might appreciate the like-new experience offered by CPO cars, traditional pre-owned cars still have a lot to offer. Your Mercedes-Benz dealer in PA maintains a large selection of pre-owned cars from automakers outside of our dealership's brand umbrella, so you'll have more options than you would if you limited yourself to CPO vehicles alone. Our certified pre-owned cars are mostly Mercedes-Benz; meanwhile, our pre-owned inventory includes a wide assortment of vehicles from a range of different automakers. 

For most drivers, however, the biggest benefit of buying something pre-owned will be the price. CPO vehicles can feel like a bargain when you're comparing them to their brand new counterparts. If you're working with a tighter budget, then your best bet for finding something affordable will most often be a pre-owned car. We have a bountiful range of pre-owned cars and certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles for you to choose, and we are confident you'll find the like-new ride you've always wanted.
