Why Buy Certified Pre-Owned?

Certified Pre-Owned Subaru

Certified Pre-Owned Subaru for Sale in Greater Albany

If you know Subaru cars and SUVs, then you know they’re built to last. In fact, approximately 97% from the last decade still going strong today, both on the road and off the beaten path. That’s for a good reason, too: simply put, they stand the tests of both time and Mother Nature, and in ways many other automakers can’t. It’s why, in part, many used Subaru vehicles can receive certified used status. But what’s CPO status mean, and why should you buy certified pre-owned here at Subaru of Troy? Just as simply put: near-new value for less, and plenty more reasons.

What is Certified Pre-Owned?

They’re used cars, but those that have been rigorously inspected, if necessary, reconditioned, and certified in exceptional condition by either a manufacturer or another certifying authority — in this case, our factory-trained and certified auto service technicians. CPO cars also features a variety of perks you won’t find with your average pre-owned, such as an extended warranty and special financing opportunities when it’s time to upgrade, among others.
