One reason people may be hesitant to buy used vehicles is that they think used cars may have defects that they won’t know about until it’s too late. While this can be the case when you buy a car from an individual, the risk is all but eliminated when buying from a trusted, reputable dealership like Patriot Mac.
Still, you may feel wary of assuming the risk of a car with an unknown history. That’s where certified pre-owned comes in handy. When you buy a certified pre-owned car from Patriot Mac, you can get the value of a used car with the peace of mind that comes from buying new. This may come in the form of a CPO program offered by the manufacturer.
Certified pre-owned vehicles undergo rigorous presale inspections, often involving more than 100 checks to various parts of the car. These typically include the engine, transmission, battery, and tires, as well as the car’s cosmetic appearance.
Depending on the manufacturer or dealer, a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO), can also include certain limitations on things like a vehicle’s age, mileage, and accident history. Choosing from CPO vehicles will make it more likely to find a car that’s reliable and in good condition.
No matter what car you buy, Patriot Mac stands behind its vehicles. And with a CPO car, you can get even more peace of mind.
Enjoy an Extended Warranty on Some Cars
Did you know that some used and CPO cars will still have part of their original warranty? Even if the car you buy is a few years old, if its warranty is still valid, then you can still enjoy convenient servicing and repairs from factory-trained technicians.
Other used cars have the option of creating a new warranty at the time of sale. These warranties may be based on mileage or time. You can also buy your own extended warranty using some of the money you saved by getting a used car.
