Why Buy Certified?

What Exactly Does A Certified Vehicle Mean?

With a manufacturer’s Certification, car makers take their later model vehicles, less than five years old, subject them to vigorous inspections, in some cases recondition certain parts of a car up to standard, and apply an extended warranty and other incentives so they can resell their certified vehicles at a premium, used car price. This is intended to benefit both car manufacturer and buyer. The manufacturer will maximize on their profit margin while the buyer will receive an almost new, higher end car with a limited warranty that should be reliable.
