CPO vs. Used


What is the difference between used and Certified Pre-Owned? The breakdown of CPO vs. used is that while both are technically “used,” a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz goes through some extra rigor to earn that label and consequently, a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle will hold a higher value when you head into your Mercedes-Benz dealer. We’ve got a great breakdown of the CPO vs. used difference as well as some Mercedes-Benz offers that are sure to entice Merced-area car buyers.

Buying a Used Mercedes-Benz

When you come across a used model of Mercedes-Benz in Stockton, you’ll find lower values than their new equivalents with different model years, mileages, and previous owner histories impacting the price that you’ll end up paying. If you find a good deal, depreciation is not that much of an issue because even though a high mileage vehicle may appear risky, proper maintenance can ensure a very long life for your car. Here are some considerations:

  • You should always give your potential next car a thorough inspection
  • Discuss issues with the vehicle’s condition so you are driving away with a safe and reliable vehicle
  • Keep in mind that you can expect more than 200,000 miles with routine maintenance

Buying a CPO Mercedes-Benz

Getting the award of Certified Pre-Owned takes a couple of things that include:

  • The model year is less than 5 years off the current model year
  • Less than 80,000 miles in most circumstances, but always under 100,000 miles
  • Able to clear a thorough multi-point inspection
  • You will also get an extended warranty and/or a limited powertrain warranty

A CPO Mercedes tends to be newer with lower mileage, meaning they’ll be offered at a higher price than used models while still being offered at an attractive price compared to a new model. If you buy Certified Pre-Owned, you’ll find more technology and features that will make your Stanislaus absolutely stellar, or, if you’re not ready to full invest in a new vehicle, learn more about used car leasing.
