Certified Pre-owned Car- is there really a difference?

February 15, 2012

I've recently been looking to buy a new car and need a little advice.

Some of the cars that I've looked at are a little bit more expensive because the dealerships claim say that they are "Certified Pre-owned Vehicles."

I'm just wondering if there is really a difference? Is it worth it to buy a CPV or is it a waste of money?

I know that they have to put the car through a series of tests in order to be qualified as CPV but I would assume that other dealerships also test their cars.

Should I go with a CPV or go with a less expensive comparable car?
