Many of the automotive ads you see on TV, in the newspaper and online for low monthly payment leases and zero percent financing are good on new vehicles, but did you know that low interest rate financing incentives are available on certified pre-owned vehicles? In addition to the money you’ll likely save by buying a used vehicle versus a new vehicle, researching used car deals and incentives will help you save even more on the vehicle’s financing. Certified pre-owned (CPO) models also go through a rigorous inspection and usually come with a warranty from the manufacturer, which can help give used car shoppers peace of mind.
