If you're shopping for your next vehicle, there's a good chance you're considering a pre-owned option. Used cars can save buyers serious money while still offering value and reliability. When buying new-to-you from someone else, there are two options: used and CPO. We'll help you distinguish between these two routes so you can make the best decision for your needs. 

Used

If you're going for the lowest possible price, used is the way to go at Sharon Chevrolet. 

In the past, buyers used to be afraid that used vehicles would fail them soon after a purchase. But, in today's automotive world, that's just not the case anymore. For one thing, today's cars are built to last well past 100,000 miles, even past 200,000 miles. With regular service and maintenance, vehicles have the potential to stick around for years and years.

There's another tool at the buyer's disposal when looking at used cars: the vehicle history report. These reports come from websites like AutoCheck and Carfax and will give you a history of the actual vehicle itself based on its identification number so you can know everything about a used car before you buy it.

CPO

If you want to buy used but still feel like the risk is greater than the money that will be saved, you'll be glad to know that there's a compromise in a CPO vehicle. 

CPO vehicles-also known as certified pre-owned vehicles-are used cars that have been inspected by manufacturer standards to ensure that they are in like-new condition. CPO vehicles have to be within a certain age-usually no more than five or six years old-and under a certain mileage. They must have clean vehicle history reports, and they must pass rigorous inspections that are set forth by each manufacturer.

When you buy a CPO vehicle, you'll pay a little more but you'll have extra peace of mind knowing that the original manufacturer has deemed the vehicle to be in excellent condition. 

Whether you're looking for a used or certified pre-owned vehicle, we have a great selection of both at Sharon Chevrolet.
