Why Buy: CPO vs Used | Beckley, WV

Why Buy: CPO vs. Used in Beckley, WV

Modern cars are built to last longer than ever before, making your decision to buy a used vehicle a smart and economical one. By buying a used car, you can avoid the staggering (and immediate) depreciation of buying a new vehicle, have your pick from a larger pool of options, and potentially afford higher trim levels that feature the latest and greatest in infotainment and safety technologies. At Mountaineer Ford, you can choose among a large inventory of used and certified pre-owned cars.

Certified Pre-Owned

A CPO vehicle has undergone a serious vetting process. Typically, a CPO vehicle boasts a multi-point inspection completed by a trained, certified technician, a warranty that offers protection for repairs, and sometimes added bonuses such as free maintenance checks like oil changes or roadside assistance. CPO vehicles also have to adhere to strict guidelines concerning mileage and model years, which means you'll be able to pilot a younger model that hasn't been around the block an exorbitant amount of times. Due to the added benefits and peace of mind that comes with a CPO vehicle, these vetted vehicles also retain a higher sticker price than a regular used car.


A non-certified car or used car usually does not come with a manufacturer-based warranty. However, depending on the model year, your new-to-you used car may have some time left on its factory warranty. Just be sure to read any warranty closely and carefully before making your purchase. Without a warranty, used cars typically feature a lower sticker price as well as room to negotiate on the price. Plus, you can always have a mechanic you trust examine the car before you buy. Obtaining a vehicle history report on the car you're eyeing will also help you determine if it's a wise buy.
