Used vs. CPO

Deciding to buy an older model year vehicle instead of a brand new one is a great option for people who want to save money or wish to drive a more expensive or luxury car they couldn’t afford to purchase new.

But, once you decide on buying a used car, you have another decision to face: Do I buy a used or a CPO vehicle? If you’re wondering what you should do, stop into Crown Alfa Romeo Dublin and one of our knowledgeable salespeople will be happy to answer all of your questions, or give you some free advice.

What’s the Difference?

A used car is a vehicle that has had one or more previous owners. You can buy a used car from an individual or other outlets including independent used car lots, rental car companies, or dealerships like Crown Alfa Romeo Dublin.

Certified pre-owned cars have had a previous owner, but are generally more lightly used, having come off a lease or been driven far less than most non-CPO cars. Most major manufacturers nowadays offer CPO programs backed by the factory.

These CPO programs usually include the following four categories: a comprehensive inspection process typically covering more than 150 areas, set standards for the vehicle’s condition including no major damage or mechanical issues, reconditioning to take care of necessary repairs to mechanical components, body, paint, and interior, and a thorough cleaning both inside and out.

What are the Benefits of Buying Used?

Buying a used vehicle offers several advantages for the car buyer, the first being cost. Buying a used car is the most inexpensive way to purchase. If you don’t have a big budget or want to keep your purchase price as low as possible, buying a used car is a great option. You can usually find a used car in any price range you’re looking for.

At Crown Alfa Romeo, we have a wide variety of used cars at a range of costs. And, if you don’t know a lot about cars and are worried about buying a lemon, we can assuage your fears and give you peace of mind.

Our certified mechanics inspect our entire used car inventory to determine if they’re good enough to be sold by us. This saves you worry and/or having to find and bring along somebody who can look the car over for you.

What are the Benefits of Buying CPO?

Certified Pre-owned vehicles give you many of the benefits of buying new without the higher cost. You get the lower price tag, but you also get the assurance of low-mileage, accident-free, well-maintained vehicles—since these are the ones chosen for CPO certification.

CPO vehicles purchased at Crown Alfa Romeo Dublin are a great alternative to buying new. Each one of our high-performance luxury CPO sports cars are guaranteed like-new quality and backed by the manufacturer’s warranty coverage.

We have a large selection of certified pre-owned vehicles all covered by the manufacturer’s specified benefits including:

  • 7-year or 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty
  • 3-month or 3,000-mile Maximum Care Coverage
  • 24-hour Towing and Roadside Assistance
  • Car Rental Allowance
  • CARFAX® Vehicle History Report
  • 3-month Introductory Subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Lifetime Certified Warranty Upgrades or Extended Warranty

Another benefit of buying a CPO vehicle instead of new is that you can opt for a nicer model or a higher trim level for a much lower price than new. If you like the extra safety features or technology upgrades but not the high cost, you can make that happen with a CPO vehicle.
