TOYOTA MAKES TOP TEN CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED VEHICLESWritten by gary on October 1st, 2010
Consumers are always interested in the top 10 vehicles to purchase.
When it comes time to buy a car, consumers basically have two choices: new or used. Go the used route, and you typically get more for your money. However, you never know if you’ll get a peach or a lemon — or do you?
MSN Autos reports that there’s a relatively new type of used car on the market that offers the advantages of buying both new and used. That is, you get more for every dollar spent, as well as the solace of knowing that the vehicle’s health and well-being is guaranteed by the vehicle’s manufacturer or an independent agency. It goes by many names, but is most commonly known as certified pre-owned (CPO).
To qualify as CPO, a vehicle must be inspected, refurbished to “almost new” condition, and certified as such by the vehicle’s manufacturer or an independent certifying authority. Furthermore, CPOs typically come with some type of factory-backed warranty and financing, just like a new car.
MSN Autos takes a look at the 10 best-selling CPO vehicles through the first six months of 2010, examines what makes them hot sellers, and talks about the strengths and weaknesses of each.
