Used vs. Certified Pre-Owned models - Jim Ellis Mazda Marietta

In the market for a used vehicle? Wondering what the difference between used and certified pre-owned is? Read on!

Are certified pre-owned and used vehicles the same? No, they're quite different! Certified pre-owned Mazda models undergo a rigorous certification process to help ensure overall quality! Used vehicles don't have to pass the same testing and certification process. If you're looking for a used vehicle that's been inspected, tested, and vetted by a group of professional technicians, a certified pre-owned Mazda vehicle is the way to go (at least, if you're only considering used and certified pre-owned vehicles).

Certified Pre-Owned Certification Process

Not just any used Mazda vehicle can qualify to be a certified pre-owned vehicle. Indeed, all Mazda certified pre-owned models must be less than six years old and have less than 80,00 miles. That's the first step. Beyond that, all certified pre-owned models must pass a 160-point inspection. Simple yet vital, this step helps ensure that the vehicle is in fit shape to take on Atlanta roads.

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Perks & Benefits

The Mazda certified pre-owned program offers Atlanta drivers an array of nifty benefits. From an impressive warranty to various perks, certified pre-owned Mazda models are hard to top when it comes to providing confidence. Every Mazda certified pre-owned model features a 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty. Additionally, all certified pre-owned models include a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty (that starts from the original in-service date) and a three-year AutoCheck Buyback Protection plan.

Used Vehicles at Jim Ellis Mazda Marietta

Sometimes used vehicles are inspected by dealership before resale. However, this does not guarantee that any potential problems have been addressed. Indeed, used vehicles are essentially uninspected vehicles that were previously owned. If you're hesitant about buying used because of the potential problematic technical issues, certified pre-owned might be for you.
