Which is Right for Me: A Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle or a Used Vehicle?
If you’re deciding between a used or a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz vehicle, consider the following differences:
- A Certified Pre-owned Car or SUV must meet age, mileage, and inspection requirements to enter the program.
- While used models might have an original warranty that still applies, a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle adds an extended limited warranty.
- A dealership only sells Certified Pre-Owned vehicles from their specific brand.
- A car that’s Certified Pre-Owned approved will usually cost more than an identical used model.
