Used Cars vs. Certified Pre-Owned in Jasper, IN

When It Comes to Value, Quality, & Getting the Best Deal, Which Is Better: Used or Certified Pre-Owned (CPO)?

Buying a used vehicle is as big a decision as buying a new vehicle, and folks from Jasper, Washington, French Lick, Huntingburg, and Petersburg, IN want to be sure they're getting the best car for the best value. We'll do our best to draw out the differences between buying a vehicle from our pre-owned inventory and choosing one of our Certified Pre-Owned Ford models, and while there's no one-size-fits-all answer, we'll lay out the benefits-including the "Ruxer Ready" benefits-to each option so you can make the choice  that best meets your needs!

Used VS CPO | Which holds the best value? Which is the better deal?

When it comes to comparing general pre-owned to certified pre-owned (CPO), one of the first places of difference is price; in general, a CPO car, crossover, SUV, or truck will be the more expensive option, but CPO models do hold the price-advantage over new models. So, while general pre-owned inventory is often the least expensive option, it doesn't bring with it the same benefits as our CPO Ford inventory, all of which offer a robust CPO Limited Warranty and 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

Another key difference between used and CPO is the pre-listing investment; a CPO vehicle has a few more hurdles to clear before becoming part our inventory than a general pre-owned vehicle, and that's because the Ford CPO program has nationwide guidelines about which vehicles make the cut. When it comes to our general pre-owned inventory, we assess it for safety and quality, but it isn't held to the same standards as a CPO vehicle, and some folks place a lot of value in those pre-listing requirements holding CPO Fords to a higher bar than a general used vehicle.


You might prefer our general pre-owned inventory if…

You might prefer our certified pre-owned inventory if…:

  • …you'd prefer the lowest sticker price over the higher price but better protections and peace of mind that a CPO model offers, you're going to find a lot of great options in our pre-owned inventory.

  • …you're someone who values warranty coverage and other benefits you don't mind paying a bit more for, the value of a Certified Pre-Owned Ford car, SUV, or truck simply can't be beat!

Whether You Buy Used or Certified Pre-Owned, You'll Still See "Ruxer Ready" Benefits!

Our "Ruxer Ready" Promise guarantees that our used vehicles are held to high standards, whether you buy it from our general pre-owned inventory or our certified pre-owned Ford inventory. We make sure to inspect each used vehicle, putting it through a 172-point inspection and reconditioning or repairing until it's up to snuff. After a thorough exterior detailing, the car is looking sharp and ready to hit the lot. If it's a CPO vehicle, the standards are even higher, but if there's one thing about both our pre-owned inventories: the bar of entry is always high, and that's how we guarantee our quality is, too.
