What is the Difference Between Used and Certified Pre-Owned?

Mazda CX-9 Driving Over a Bridge


If you are browsing the Bradenton market for a great deal on a vehicle, you have probably come across an inventory of certified pre-owned vehicles. But what is the difference between used and certified pre-owned vehicles? The distinction isn’t just semantics – a certified pre-owned (or “CPO”) vehicle goes through a complex multi-point inspection and gets Sarasota drivers additional benefits. Read on for more about Mazda CPO vs. Used vehicles from Cox Mazda

CPO vs Used: Multi-Inspection

Before you take your CPO vehicle on Tampa roads, it will have undergone a 160-pointinspection.

  • A used vehicle from a dealership goes through a solid but much more basic inspection — and the price reflects this difference.
  • A CPO vehicle from the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned program undergoes an inspection of inside and out and comes with a proprietary AutoCheck vehicle history report so you have a detailed idea of the condition of your CPO Mazda.

What is the Difference Between Used and Certified Pre-Owned?: Warranties and Other Perks

One of the biggest reasons to look into buying a CPO vs used vehicle is the warranty coverage provided with a Mazda CPO vehicle. You have many options in this department:

  • 12-month/12,000-mile Limited Vehicle Warrantythat will kick in when your vehicle’s factory warranty ends. If the factory warranty is out, this begins on the day of your purchase of the CPO vehicle.
  • An available Extended Confidence Warranty can kick into gear once your original warranty ends.
  • Seven-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty: this comes with 24-hour roadside assistance for work such as towing, tire changes, gas delivery, and more.
  • Complimentary trial of Sirius XM radio on vehicles equipped for it.
