Pre-owned vehicles are an excellent option for many car buyers. However, every used vehicle has different mileage, wear and tear, and functionality considerations, making comparing cars a little tricky. Additionally, categorizations like “used,” “certified used,” “pre-owned,” “like new,” and “certified pre-owned” can all mean different things. We here at Bachman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) want to make sure you understand what type of vehicle you’re looking at when it’s already had a previous owner so that you can make the best purchasing decision for your needs.

Used Vehicles

Used cars, as the name implies, are those that have been owned by at least one previous owner. Some dealerships may refer to these cars as “pre-owned,” “like new,” or other terms that mean “used.” The most important thing to know is that no matter what term the dealer uses, all of these vehicles have had at least one owner before going out on the lot.

Used vehicles are typically older models with high mileage. They may be in perfect condition or have some cosmetic damage or minor mechanical issues. Used cars can be a smart financial move, as they’re usually the least expensive options on the lot, but they can come with a bit of a risk owing to their age and higher potential for repairs or part failure compared to new cars.

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

Certified pre-owned vehicles are used cars that must meet specific criteria to get the certified pre-owned classification. Typically, these vehicles are some of the newest used cars available from recent model years. They have updated safety and convenience features, are in good cosmetic and mechanical condition, and often come with warranties that used cars don’t qualify for. They’re also only sold by car dealerships that sell the same brand of vehicle new.

Certified pre-owned vehicles offer peace of mind to buyers because of the litany of high standards required to earn this categorization. Typically, drivers who purchase certified pre-owned vehicles are less likely to see maintenance and mechanical issues immediately after driving off the lot.

Benefits of Purchasing a Used Vehicle

Used vehicles can be a smart choice for some buyers, depending on their needs and budget. A few of the benefits of purchasing a used vehicle include the following:

  • Cost: Used cars are typically the lowest priced on the lot, costing less than new and certified pre-owned vehicles.
  • Depreciation: Used cars aren’t subject to the same level of depreciation as new cars, which often lose thousands of dollars in value the second you drive away from the dealership.
  • Insurance rates: Usually, buyers can insure used cars for a lower amount than new cars.
  • Fees: Often, new cars incur fees used cars don’t, like shipping costs, for example, which can save used car drivers more money.

Benefits of Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

Certified pre-owned vehicles can be highly advantageous purchases for savvy buyers, as they can offer many of the rewards of buying a used car without many of the risks. The benefits of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle from Bachman CDJR specifically include the following:


One of the primary benefits of purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle is the warranty, as used cars don’t typically come with warranties. Our certified pre-owned vehicles come with a generous warranty package, which includes the following:

  • Three-month/3,000-mile maximum care warranty.
  • Up to a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
  • Lifetime certified upgrade plans.


Certified pre-owned vehicles are rigorously inspected before they can earn the stamp of approval. Before officially designating any of our vehicles as certified pre-owned, we perform a 125-point inspection to make sure they’re running properly. That inspection includes the following:

  • Qualification standards: These standards ensure the vehicle meets the certified pre-owned moniker’s basic qualification, including car age and number of miles.
  • Ownership materials: All certified pre-owned vehicles must include certain ownership materials, such as the owner’s manual, before they can go out on the lot.
  • Mechanical standards: We evaluate the mechanical elements of the vehicle to ensure they’re all in working order, including an under-the-hood check, road test, and careful inspection of all parts.
  • Maintenance standards: These standards ensure that the vehicle is up to date on all its maintenance needs.
  • Appearance standards: All vehicles are examined to make sure all parts, both inside and outside of the vehicle, are free of damage.
  • Detail standards: We clean the exterior and interior of the vehicle to ensure the vehicle is appropriately detailed for buyers.

Vehicle History Report

A thorough vehicle history report can give buyers confidence in their car purchase by knowing their car isn’t hiding any damage from past accidents. We provide a CARFAX®Vehicle History Report that includes the following:

  • Documentation that the vehicle is clear of any prior title obligations.
  • The CARFAX®Buyback Guarantee to protect you from unknowingly buying a used car with incidents reported by the Department of Motor Vehicles, such as salvage, fire, flood damage, odometer problems, or lemon history. This coverage lasts one year and is transferable.

Roadside coverage

Roadside coverage is another beneficial certified pre-owned vehicle benefit. We provide roadside coverage and a car rental allowance to our certified pre-owned car buyers. These services include the following:

  • Flat tire service using your good spare.
  • Gas delivery up to 2 gallons.
  • Battery jump assistance.
  • Lockout service if you lock your keys in the car, your door lock is frozen, or something similar occurs.
  • Towing service if the vehicle is inoperative.
  • Car rental if your vehicle requires repairs or becomes inoperable due to the failure of a covered component, and the repairs take overnight.
  • Car rental allowance of up $35 per day, with a $175 maximum per occurrence.

Deciding between a used and certified pre-owned vehicle usually depends on budget, availability, and features. It’s always worthwhile to explore our certified pre-owned selection since purchasing a certified pre-owned vehicle offers a long list of benefits.
