The biggest question shoppers must answer when looking for a pre-owned vehicle is whether they want to choose a used or certified pre-owned model. Since either option offers unique benefits, let the team at LaFontaine Ford of Flushing give you some advice with this used vs. certified pre-owned guide.
When you’re ready to hit the streets of Flushing, Flint, or Swartz Creek, Michigan, you can visit our dealership to find a model that suits your needs!
While all certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles are used, not all used vehicles are certified. To become certified, a vehicle will have to meet certain qualifications to ensure they’re up to our standards. For instance, Ford CPO models must pass a multi-point inspection of at least 139 points.
They’ll also need to be less than 10 years old and have no more than 120,000 miles on the odometer. Since these vehicles are also all available with a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ on hand, you can choose one feeling confident in its abilities.
These models will also come with additional warranties and roadside assistance. So, even if there is an issue, you can trust it will be taken care of quickly. Since these models come with so many extra benefits, they will sometimes cost slightly more than a traditional used model.
Either a used or a certified pre-owned vehicle will be a dependable and economical addition to your daily drives. So, as you start weighing your options, take a look through our inventory to see which vehicles we have available.
With the many makes and models found in our used inventory and the popular Ford vehicles—such as the F-150—available in our certified selection, we have a model here with your name on it.
