5 Questions To Ask When Buying A Certified Pre-Owned Car

When you're scouring the Mount Pocono, Tobyhanna, Scranton, East Stroudsburg and Stroudsburg areas looking for the right used car, you may benefit from checking out the inventory of certified pre-owned cars at your local dealership. These vehicles are thoroughly inspected, only a few years old, have a certain mileage, and are in great condition. At Ray Price Chevrolet, we're proud to help drivers find the right certified pre-owned vehicle, but there are certain steps you'll want to take in order to get the most out of your experience and ensure you find the perfect car.

Here are the five questions to ask when buying a certified pre-owned car:


1. How Many Miles Are On The CPO Vehicle?

When you answer this question, you'll already have the year of the model. But when you ask about the mileage, you can pretty much piece together how often the original owner drove it. You may even be able to tell the type of maintenance you'll be looking at down the road if you opt to buy the car.

 
 
 

2. Is There A Vehicle History Report?

This should be your next question after inquiring about the mileage. The Vehicle History Report will detail the types of services that were performed on the vehicle, so you can get a sense of how it was maintained during the previous ownership. You'll be able to see if there were any accidents. Lastly, this will tell you how many previous owners there were, so if the vehicle has gone through a few different owners in just a few years, you may want to avoid purchasing it.

3. What Type Of Features Come With The CPO Car?

It's always good to get a sense of the types of features and technology that come with the vehicle. Considering that you may be taking this vehicle out on your daily commute, it's good to know the types of entertainment it offers, as well as any convenience features that the vehicle may include. If you're happy with the offered amenities, you can move forward with the process.

4. What CPO Warranties Are Included?

Almost all certified pre-owned car vehicles are backed by manufacturer warranties that last for a specific set of years or miles (whichever comes first). Some certified pre-owned vehicles also come with benefits like Roadside Assistance and trip interruption coverage. Ask about the warranties so you can determine if there's enough coverage offered with the vehicle.

5. Can I Take It Out For A Test Drive?

This is one of the most important questions to ask when buying a certified pre-owned car because it provides you with the opportunity to experience the vehicle on the road. You'll get a feel for how it handles and the response of the pedals. By taking the test drive, you'll experience the performance and you'll be able to determine how you feel about the car.

When you begin the experience of finding the right certified pre-owned vehicle, you'll want to ask these crucial questions so you can make the right choices before making your final decision. At Ray Price Chevrolet, we're always here to help drivers learn as much as possible about the vehicles that they're considering so they can comfortably decide on their next car.
