Should I Buy a Used or CPO Model?

There are many buying choices when it comes to Buick models these days. While you can certainly go with a new car, there are two others to also consider: pre-owned or a Buick Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. Today, we’ll discuss the merits of both so you can make an informed decision on which is best for you.

Why Buy a Pre-Owned Buick?

In terms of price, there is really no beating a pre-owned Buick. A model that is only a couple of years old, like a Buick Envision, for example, will be much less expensive than a new model.

If you’re going to finance the purchase, this means you won’t have to borrow as much money. In addition, you won’t need to have as big a down payment, and your monthly payments can be very reasonable.

Another advantage of going the pre-owned route? You’ll have quite a few more vehicles to pick from, in a wide range of makes, models, and years. In fact, you can even find a model you like, in a high-end trim, for just a fraction of what it cost when it was originally purchased.

Why Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Buick?

Your other choice with a non-new model is a CPO vehicle. While typically a little more expensive than a regular pre-owned car, the extra cost is worth it. This is because the quality of CPO vehicles is unquestioned.

First of all, CPO vehicles have to pass a thorough 172-point inspection, as well as a road assessment. At most, they can be six years old and have 75,000 miles.

They also come with the remainder of the original six-year/ 100,000-mile Extended Powertrain warranty, as well as a 12-month/12,000-mile Limited warranty. You will have access to 24/7 emergency roadside assistance for your CPO Buick Enclave for things like jumpstarts and lockouts. In addition, there’s a free three-month trial of SiriusXM® satellite radio.
