The benefits of buying a Certified Pre-Owned Mazda

When shopping for a car, you might think you only have the following options:

  • Buy or lease a new vehicle
  • Buy a used vehicle

At PJ's Mazda, we're here to remind you of a third choice: buying a Certified Pre-Owned Mazda!

What is a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

All Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles are used, but not all used vehicles are CPO. What sets them apart is that a Certified vehicle must follow a strict set of rules and standards.

For example, the vehicle must be a late-model Mazda sedan, roadster, or crossover. This ensures that the customer is getting an up-to-date vehicle with familiar looks and technology. I.e., even if some traded in a well-kept Mazda model that was 10-years old, it still couldn't earn the CPO title. Another thing is that a CPO Mazda cannot exceed a certain mileage, ensuring the purchase has plenty of life left for the next owner.

After the vehicle has passed those important tests, the trained technicians at our Vermont Mazda dealership put the vehicle through a 160-point inspection where no stone is left unturned. If the model passes, it receives the Certified Pre-Owned title!

Okay, so Why Buy Certified?

CPO Mazda models are a great option for drivers who want to buy a used vehicle for the cost-saving benefits, but also want a little extra peace of mind. They get this by knowing the vehicle has gone through such a thorough inspection.

When you buy a CPO Mazda, you also get additional perks. These include:

  • Extended warranties
  • 24-hour roadside assistance
  • SiriusXM trials
  • Transfer benefits if you sell the vehicle
  • ...and more!
