There’s more to CPO’s than what initially comes to mind. The misconceptions that a Certified Pre-Owned car is the same as a used car could not be further from the truth. In this article, you will learn the many advantages to purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.
The main reason can be simply stated – the warranties. Each Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a confidence-inspiring 12-month/12,000-Mile Limited Warranty. That comes with absolutely no deductible on covered repairs, which begins when the factory warranty ends. If the vehicle is out of warranty, then the Limited Warranty begins on the CPO purchase date. This gives owners peace of mind knowing that if something goes wrong you will be covered within the first year of owning your Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.
Another warranty you get with all Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicles is the outstanding 7-year/100,000-Mile Limited Powertrain Warranty. This covers a variety of things all stemming from the parts that “make your car go.” The engine, transmission, and drivetrain (the components that get the engines power to the wheels) are all parts that are encompassed by the Powertrain Warranty. It doesn’t cover things that are expected to be replaced regularly, though. Parts such as the clutch, brake pads, or certain belts will not be covered because they are considered regular maintenance.
A third advantage to a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from Preston Mazda is 24-Hour Emergency Roadside Assistance. Certified Pre-Owned buyers – even qualified family members – are covered 24/7 with the complimentary Emergency Roadside Assistance Program for the duration of the Powertrain Warranty. Clearly, the aim of CPO’s is to give owners peace of mind without paying for new car prices.
Mazda also requires a 150-Point Detailed Inspection. Each Certified Pre-Owned vehicle goes through a mandatory inspection. This is performed by a factory-trained, Mazda technician right here on site at the Preston Mazda Service Building.
Buyers also get added confidence with an Autocheck Vehicle History Report and 3-Year Buyback program. In order to make sure you know exactly what you are getting into, each Mazda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a full Autocheck. This is basically the same thing as a Carfax – it reports previous owners, accidents, repairs, and more. It also comes with 3-Year Buyback Protection from Experian.
We’re still not done! There are other advantages, such as the Available Extended Coverage. There are various available term and mileage intervals to extend the coverage of your CPO vehicle. Finally, owners have Transfer Benefits with a Certified Pre-Owned Mazda. When the time comes to sell your Certified Mazda, it will look even more attractive to potential buyers because the Limited Vehicle and Limited Powertrain Warranties are transferable to future owners – at no cost!
Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles bring about a great sense of relief and confidence even though you are technically buying a used car. CPO’s, as you can tell, are miles above any regular used car.
