If you’re looking for a dependable and inexpensive car, drivers around Mission Hills and West Hollywood have a few options, namely used cars and Certified Used cars. But which option is best? Research the differences between pre-owned and Certified Pre-Owned cars here at Toyota of Downtown LA.

The Benefits of Buying Used

There are several benefits to buying a used car. Such benefits include:

  • Saving money
  • Aftermarket customizability and upgradeability
  • A large variety from which to choose, since you can choose unique old models

The Benefits of Buying Certified

Certified vehicles have many of the same benefits as used, with bonuses including a multipoint inspection, warranty protection, roadside assistance, and special financing rates. These extras come at a cost, but they can be worth it to drivers who want to take some of the uncertainty out of buying a car, but still want to take advantage of lower used car prices.

Used vs. Certified Used

Both used and CPO vehicles offer shoppers great value, but some points could make one more appealing than another:
