What’s the Difference Between a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle and a Used Vehicle?

When shopping around for a New York Braunability MXV or any other type of accessible vehicle, buying a brand new vehicle can get a bit expensive. That’s because of the highly specialized modifications and driving equipment that are used in these vehicles. Another option for those with a limited budget is to take a look at a certified pre-owned or used vehicle at a more affordable price.

So you may be asking, what exactly is the difference between a certified pre-owned and a used vehicle? Aren’t they the same thing?

Both types of vehicles have been owned previously. But the major difference is that a certified pre-owned vehicle has been thoroughly inspected by a mobility dealer.

A certified pre-owned vehicle has been previously owned, generally has no more than 30,000 to 40,000 miles on it, and is less than three years old. Vehicles classified as certified pre-owned will generally still fall under the original manufacturer warranty and are subject to rigorous, multi-point inspections before being resold.

Used vehicles are all other pre-owned vehicles that don’t fit into these parameters.

One consideration when weighing the pros and cons of each type of pre-owned vehicle is cost. While certified pre-owned vehicles are less expensive than buying new, they generally come with a higher price tag than a non-certified, used vehicle.

When purchasing a certified pre-owned accessible vehicle, like a New York Braunability MXV at Bussani Mobility, you can have confidence in knowing that the vehicle has been thoroughly inspected, and checked for salvage title, corrosion, engine compression, previous accidents, and the overall condition of the vehicle. Our certified service technicians also check the condition of the tires, brakes, upholstery, fluids, service history, suspension condition, and alignment.
