Certified Pre-Owned, New, or Used: What's the difference
When considering the purchase of a vehicle, many different purchasing options are available to you. Maybe you've been searching high and low for used car dealerships in Bradenton. Maybe you're desperate for any Bradenton car dealers, as long as they have the newest model you like. But maybe you're searching for a middle ground between a new car and a used car. That's where the most overlooked third option comes in: a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.

What is Certified Pre-Owned?
Many are familiar with the difference between a new and used car. It is self-explanatory for the most part: a new car hasn't had any previous owners, while a used car does. A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a compromise between the two. Have you ever wanted to buy a used car but didn't want to deal with "used" problems? Well, enter Certified Pre-Owned vehicles - it's like buying a used car but better. To become a Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle, a car must possess the following requirements:

- Was chosen based on the high quality of its condition, which often includes a service history with factory dealers
- Is certified to our high standards by expertly trained Cadillac technicians
Has any open recall repairs completed by trained Cadillac technicians
- Is backed by the same people who designed, engineered and built the vehicle
- Can be serviced at any Cadillac Dealership nationwide

Basically, a Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a used car that is of higher quality than its alternatives.

How Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles Surpass the Competition
Now that we understand the difference between the types of vehicles, we can understand how Certified Pre-Owned vehicles surpass its competition. A Certified Pre-Owned Cadillac CTS ranges from $22,988 to $30,488. (Prices range for multiple reasons, one factor being the year of the model.) Compare those prices to the MSRP of a brand new Cadillac CTS, which is $54,380. That difference results in over $31,000 on the high end!

Although a used CTS can be available for as low as $15,988, the invisible costs of a used car are the costs of maintenance and repairs - all of which are expected when one does not buy a certified pre-owned vehicle. The Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, therefore, surpasses its competition as it is a compromise of price and quality.
