You've decided that you want to splurge on a Cadillac for your next vehicle. However, you're not sure if you should go for a certified pre-owned (CPO) model or a pre-owned model. Maybe you're not even sure what the difference is.

Cavender Cadillac of Lubbock is here to help Lubbock, Amarillo, and Midland, TX, residents learn the difference between these two options so that they can choose the best one for them.

Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Program

Certified pre-owned Cadillac vehicles are those that have undergone rigorous and specific testing and reconditioning to earn the CPO title. A CPO Cadillac is revamped (and repaired if necessary) to a like-new state so that when you step inside, you feel like you're in a brand-new vehicle.

Each CPO Cadillac:

  • Passes a 172-point inspection
  • Comes with a Vehicle History Report
  • Is road tested

On top of being a high-quality pre-owned Cadillac, a vehicle under the Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Program also comes with numerous benefits.

For starters, the original 4-year/50,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty that comes with each new model continues with your certified pre-owned Cadillac. Once it expires, the 1-year/unlimited-mile Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty kicks in.

During this period, you also get courtesy transportation if you ever find yourself in an accident or with a flat tire on the road as well as 6,000 points toward My Cadillac Rewards and a 3-month trial subscription of SiriusXM.

Pre-Owned Cadillac Models

pre-owned Cadillac is similar to a CPO vehicle in certain ways but offers its own benefits as well. Just like with certified pre-owned models, you can choose a pre-owned model from various model years. However, there are often many more used Cadillac models to choose from than certified pre-owned ones.

That's because pre-owned Cadillacs don't follow any kind of stringent criteria. While they are also reconditioned and in great shape, a pre-owned model isn't limited to a certain manufacturing year range. This means that you'll not only be able to find a pre-owned Cadillac that you love, but you might also be able to find that a model that isn't produced anymore, making it a rare and exciting find.

CPO Cadillac vs Used Cadillac: Which Option Is Right for You?

Only you can figure out whether a pre-owned or a certified pre-owned Cadillac is right for you.

A CPO option might suit you better if this is your first time purchasing a pre-owned vehicle. Doing so allows you to benefit from the typically lower cost that comes with a pre-owned vehicle while still getting the protection that you get with a new model.

On the other hand, if there's a specific Cadillac that you've had your eye on with a particular color, trim, and engine, then you'll likely have more luck finding it among the pre-owned inventory.
