Used Car Buying: What You Need to Know

Used cars have had previous owner’s and are often vary in terms of makes, models, years, and mileage. Due to these differences and having many previous owner’s, they are often more affordable than new and CPO vehicles. For many Boca Raton buyers, a used vehicle is the cheapest option for them, making used vehicles popular with many.

Mileage is also an area in which used cars vary, as some might have over 100,000 miles on them. Many might view this as a risk, however, if the vehicle is well maintained and has a documented service history, it might last you a long time! When looking to buy a new car, be sure to keep this in mind:

  • Standard used cars are not usually inspected prior to being sold, however, Land Rover Palm Beach wants our customers to have a good experience, making sure we only sell used cars that are in working order.
  • If there are any issues that you notice when looking at the car, you should bring them up to the dealership or seller. Be sure to factor in the cost of repair to the overall price if the vehicle you purchase has some issues.
  • When well-maintained, vehicles can last more than 200,000 miles. Cars with higher mileage aren’t bad choices if you want to keep the price low.

Buying a Land Rover CPO Car: What You Need to Know

When learning the difference between used and certified used cars, you’ll see that CPO vehicles are also used; however, they still stand apart from traditional used cars. So, what does certified pre-owned mean? CPO vehicles are thoroughly inspected by one of our technicians, making sure everything is working properly. Only after they are vigorously tested and inspected can they qualify for the CPO program. They must meet the following requirements to be eligible for a CPO sale:

  • Model year is within five years of the current model year
  • Have less than 60,000 miles
  • Pass a 165-point inspection
