Here Are This Month’s Best Used Cars
If you plan to buy a used car in the near future, now is a great time to consider Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programs as an alternative to a regular used car. Most major car manufacturers offer a CPO program, and though they vary a bit from brand to brand, they have more in common than not. Candidates for CPO certification are identified when the car arrives at the dealership (usually as a lease return or a trade) and selected based on age, mileage, and general condition. Before the vehicle is certified as CPO, it’s given a thorough inspection, tuned up to meet the manufacturer’s specifications, and made showroom-clean. CPO vehicles cost a little more, but they come with the manufacturer’s seal of approval, the remainder of the new car warranty, and usually, a secondary warranty. Even better, many manufacturers offer special financing deals on CPO inventory, which we list on our best car deals pages each month.
This month’s CPO car deals vary from affordable Chevrolet subcompacts to high-end Mercedes-Benz luxury coupes. If you’re interested in General Motors vehicles, take a look at Buick and Chevy, which are both offering 1.9 percent financing on certain models. Other affordable, family-friendly offers this month include 0.99 percent financing on CPO Subaru models and 1.95 percent financing on all CPO Nissan models.
If a luxury car is more your style, this month’s deals are more affordable than you might think. Jaguar, Lexus, and MINI are all offering 0.9 percent financing on certain CPO models. Mercedes-Benz offers this month include 2.99 percent financing on certain models, which is a good deal, too.
