Factory certified Pre-owned cars offer the perfect balance between new and used cars. They are used, but they have been inspected, repaired, and are guaranteed by the manufacturer to be reliable. Certified pre-owned cars come with a warranty from the manufacturer. Certified pre-owned cars can also usually be financed at better rates than other used cars through the original manufacturer. You also get the benefits of buying a car from a dealer, who will take car of things like registering the vehicle for you, something a private seller couldn’t.
