Certified vs. Used: What’s the Difference

Right now at Savannah Hyundai, we are having a Certified Sale of our 2013 Hyundai Sonatas. Each 2013 Hyundai Sonata is priced at $13,997 or below! Each one is a certified pre-owned Hyundai.
 You may be wondering what exactly is the difference between a certified pre-owned vehicle and a used car? Is certified just a fancy spin on a used car or does it really make a difference?

What does Certified mean?            
Well, in order to become a certified pre-owned vehicle, the car must meet specific age and mileage requirements. Usually this means the car is less than 5 years old and has less than 80,000 miles on it. Then the vehicle goes through a thorough inspection at the dealership. Inspections differ amongst manufacturers, but in order to become a Hyundai Certified pre-owned, the vehicle must pass a 150-point inspection. Certified Pre-owned vehicles also come with a limited warranty- unlike used cars. Hyundai CPOs come with the remainder of the 10 year/100,000-Mile powertrain limited warranty plus the 5-year/60,000-Mile New vehicle limited warranty. A complimentary CARFAX Vehicle History Report is also provided to drivers.

Late Model. Low Mileage. 150-point Inspection. Limited Warranty. 

Although CPOs are often priced a little higher than a used car, the peace of mind that comes with buying a CPO can be worth it. There is risk when buying any used car, but a certified pre-owned vehicle the risk is considerably lower. A lot of CPOs are lease returns or late-model trade-ins. With Hyundai CPO, you also get 10 year/ Unlimited Mileage Roadside Assistance and rental car reimbursement for covered repairs. When you buy a used car, you typically do not get such assurances. 

At Savannah Hyundai, we a have a variety of certified pre-owned 2013 Hyundai Sonatas on the lot. Savannah Hyundai is located at 7011 Abercorn St in Savannah, GA 31406. You can check out our inventory online and even get pre-approved before stepping foot on the lot.
