Q: What is a certified used car?
A: Certified used cars (also known as pre-owned vehicles) have been through a thorough inspection by a qualified technician. After the inspection the vehicle is issued an extended warranty that is backed by the manufacturer. Most certified pre-owned vehicles have low mileage, are within three to four years old, and have no major damage. Certified vehicles will generally cost more than a comparable used car since it comes with an extended warranty that is backed by the manufacturer.
