What Is a Certified Pre-Owned Car?

When a car is described as "certified pre-owned," you can rest assured that the vehicle has been assessed and inspected thoroughly. Typically, a certified used vehicle has been inspected, then refurbished as necessary. Chevrolet issues a certification once the car has been properly assessed for value, damages, and function. We conduct a 125-point or 80-point inspection at Huffines Chevrolet to ensure our vehicles are in the best possible shape.

When you're car shopping, certified pre-owned vehicles have specific benefits. For example, you can trust that the car will operate up to the manufacturer's standard because of the certification. At Huffines, our certified pre-owned vehicles have a complimentary limited warranty so you can feel confident driving for years to come. Sometimes, you can qualify for specific financing options when you opt for a certified pre-owned vehicle. If you're interested in this option, contact our sales team or finance team to learn more about the benefits of certified pre-owned vehicles.

Benefits of Purchasing a Used Car

Whether you choose to purchase a certified pre-owned vehicle or another type of used car, there are several benefits you can take advantage of. Here are some of the main benefits of buying a used or pre-owned vehicle:

Slower Depreciation

When you buy a brand-new vehicle, it depreciates faster than a used car. Used cars have already depreciated since they were first purchased, so your used vehicle remains valuable longer than a brand new one. Often, a new car depreciates by 40-50% in the first few years. However, a used car depreciates at a much slower rate simply because it isn't brand new.

For example, imagine you buy a new car, then sell it a few years later. You'll likely sell the vehicle for much less than you originally paid. However, suppose you want to buy and sell a used vehicle. In that case, you'll probably be able to sell the vehicle for a similar amount as you paid for it.

Lower Price

In addition to slower depreciation, used vehicles and certified pre-owned vehicles often sell for a lower price. When a car has been previously owned, you can purchase it for much less than its original value. This can help you get more for your money, especially if you're a first-time buyer. You can view our entire used vehicle inventory to compare prices on the vehicles you're most interested in.

Vehicle Options

When you look for used or pre-owned vehicles, you can choose from a wider variety of options. Typically, shopping for a new car limits your options to recently released vehicles. However, there are used cars from several years ago that function properly and are reliable. This creates a larger market for used vehicles, so you can find the specific car you want.

Insurance Price

Usually, insurance companies consider the value of your vehicle when calculating your insurance rate. When your car has a higher value, your insurance may cost more. However, you can benefit from cheaper insurance since used cars are valued lower. When you apply for insurance, you can list the value of your used car to bring down the cost of your monthly or yearly payments.

Lower Sales Tax

Another financial benefit of a certified pre-owned or used car is that you pay lower sales tax. The sales tax is often higher on more valuable cars, so you can begin saving cash immediately when you purchase a less valuable vehicle. So, for the same reason you pay lower insurance, you pay less sales tax on your used vehicle when you purchase it. This is important to consider as you begin budgeting for buying a car.

More Reliability

One of the main benefits of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle from our Lewisville dealership is that the vehicle is more reliable. When a vehicle receives status as a certified pre-owned car, you can confidently drive the car without worrying that it won't function properly. This provides added security to you as a driver and buyer. Additionally, the complimentary warranty can help you fix any issues that do arise on your certified pre-owned vehicle. We are here to help you drive away in a reliable Chevrolet you will love.

Trustworthy Vehicle History

Another benefit of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle is that you can trust the vehicle history. At Huffines, we store all the Carfax of a vehicle on hand, so you can request a vehicle's history. These reports can provide you with all the details you need about the car's history so you can make an informed choice before purchasing. This service is free of charge since we want you to choose a car you feel comfortable driving.
