Are you currently in the market for a pre-owned vehicle? You may still be in the process of exploring your options. If so, here are a few things to consider when buying a pre-owned Acura.

1. Is Financing Available?

You might be wondering if financing is available for pre-owned cars. The good news is that Acura of Peabody finances both new and pre-owned vehicles. Our finance experts are ready to help you find the perfect car for your lifestyle and budget. The easiest way to get started is by completing an application online.

2. Is Coverage Available?

Pre-owned vehicles are eligible for limited warranties, powertrain coverage, and roadside assistance programs. The specifics will vary from vehicle to vehicle, so be sure to inquire about coverage options for the vehicle you are interested in.

3. Should I Buy Pre-Owned or Certified Pre-Owned?

Whether you visit our dealership in Peabody or shop our inventory online, you’ll be able to choose between pre-owned and certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles. Both types are used cars. However, CPO vehicles are held to a higher standard and meet the following criteria.

  • Less than six years old
  • Less than 80,000 miles
  • Must pass a 182-point inspection
  • Come with a certified limited warranty and powertrain coverage
  • Covered by a roadside assistance program

Not all pre-owned vehicles meet these standards, but that does not make them less valuable. For example, you might choose a very well-maintained pre-owned vehicle that is seven years old and doesn’t meet the certified criteria. On the other hand, pre-owned vehicles might be your best bet. It is a matter of preference, and you have many options when buying pre-owned.
