Car buyers in the market for an exceptional price on a luxury or performance vehicle from a dealership in or around Philadelphia have several options to consider. They may choose to purchase a new vehicle off the lot or select from the used vehicle inventory.
Within the category of used vehicles, there are also two options. One that is often overlooked is the option to purchase certified pre owned cars. While all pre owned vehicles are used, the certified label provides Philadelphia car buyers with several important features that are only available on these vehicles.
Low Mileage and Newer Model Year
All certified pre owned cars must meet the specific standards set by the manufacturer. Only the manufacturer can certify a used vehicle, which is why they are only available from dealership lots.
The standards include a maximum mileage on the vehicle and a model year age. Most manufacturers have mileage limits of 50,000 to 75,000 miles and models five or six years or newer. The vast majority of certified vehicles have very low mileage. Some have only a few hundred miles on the odometer.
Warranty and Roadside Assistance
Similar to new cars, the certified Preowned Cars Philadelphia come with a limited warranty and roadside assistance. The length and specifics of the warranty as well as the duration of the roadside assistance are also set by the manufacturer.
The cost of these certified vehicles is slightly higher than used vehicles, but much lower than brand new. As they are inspected, tested, and in like-new condition, they are an excellent way to drive a luxury or performance vehicle without the cost of a new model.
