At the time of purchasing a vehicle, the buyers usually can have three options. It will be either a brand new car, a used one, or a certified pre-owned model. Though there cannot be any comparison between the new vehicles with that of a used or certified pre-owned one, many might find it more practical a solution to go for one from the two latter options than the first one. But here let us not get diverted into that endless discussion, rather we must pinpoint on the differences that make the used cars and the certified pre-owned vehicles as two separate categories. To get the most authentic information we consulted a well-reputed dealership in our neighborhood where they advertised for used cars for sale Las Vegas.

The Points of Differences

The category of used car is a vast one, which will even include the certified pre-owned cars. But as the terminologies go around the car selling industry, the used car is naming a category of cars that are more informally put up for sale. So here go the criteria based on which the differences between the used cars and certified pre-owned cars are determined.

Price Factor

Used cars are those on which the prices can be negotiated, and things are not as certain and fixed as the certified pre-owned cars. The certified pre-owned cars, as the name suggests, are certified by the dealership, and that is one of the reasons why their sale price is fixed and cannot be negotiated. 

150-point Inspection

Used vehicles usually are the ones that have not undergone a full 150-point inspection formally by a dealership. These cars also do not provide any dealership warranty as well, for the same reason. On the other hand, the cars that have been gently used, and are still in as good condition as new, and has its warranty period running, will be certified by the dealerships, and will be tagged with a higher and static price.

On Warranty

The Certified pre-owned vehicles that are also known more popularly as (CPO) vehicles will have all the above-mentioned attributes and will also come with a manufacturer-issued extended warranty. The Certified pre-owned vehicles that are also known more popularly as (CPO) vehicles will have all the above-mentioned attributes and will also come with a manufacturer-issued extended warranty.

A certified pre-owned vehicle will be as good as a new vehicle that are inspected thoroughly inspected by an authorized dealership and have a certificate of its current condition. It goes without saying that a certified pre-owned vehicle will obviously have lower miles, lesser number of repair history, and also supported by the financer, if both the parties are equally interested in it.   

At the same dealership where we saw used cars for sale Las Vegas, rounded up the conversation by stating the concluding factor that the last and most stark difference one can count between the used and certified pre-owned cars is that, while the used car can be of any age, condition and sold by an individual party, the certified pre-owned ones will be comparatively new, having good running condition and are sold only at used car dealerships.
