Certified vs Non-Cerftified Used Cars - What is the Difference

Being able to experience luxury is a blessing. Nothing defines decadence better than luxury cars, and the idea that you can own them at competitive prices is a blessing in its own right. Autobest is committed to bestowing this blessing on you with utmost transparency and trust. Owning a luxury car enhances your style, and regular cars have their own importance in terms of their functionality. Getting from point A to point B is instrumental in earning livelihood for so many people. Autobest is committed to delivering good quality pre-owned cars to its customers at the best price, with the best features and the best service.

If you are someone who wants to buy a preowned car, then you need to do some due diligence before that. The most significant question is if you would want to buy a pre owned certified cars or a non-certified car. As a buyer, you must understand the difference between the two to make a well-informed choice. 

Difference between a Certified Pre-owned and a non-certified car

A pre-owned car is any car that has had an owner in the past. Buying a pre-owned car can significantly reduce the price of the vehicle for its buyer, but many variables are involved. The price of a pre-owned car is determined by the number of the past owners it has had, the miles on it, its condition etc. 

Apart from that, another deciding factor has to be if a pre-owned car is certified or not. 

  • A certified pre-owned car (CPO) usually goes through rigorous checks and inspections to ensure that it is up to speed with all the protocols that the experts have set whereas there are no set protocols to check non-certified cars. Having said that, any car that Autobest Emporio sells is thoroughly checked, but the intensity and levels of inspection might vary for CPO and non-certified cars.

  • Cars are checked for their overall condition, their age in terms of years and other factors so as to be able to assess any unforeseen situation with the vehicle. A non certified car ; if not properly maintained by its last owner can incur high maintenance cost for the buyer.

  • A certified pre-owned car can't be older than a few years, but there is no such set standard for a non-certified pre-owned car.

  • Buying acertified pre owned car meaningthat you will be provided warranty for the same but that is not the case with a non certified car. 

  • If you talk about the price point, then non certified cars are priced lesser as compared to certified pre-owned cars (CPO). CPOs are often priced high due to their adherence to a top-notch checking programme. Although it is costly, getting a CPO always has value in the long run. 

  • A certified pre-owned car, is refurbished in terms of the paint job, engineering work etc. So that the car can be restored to ‘new like’ conditions. A non certified car may or may not be refurbished. 

  • If a pre owned cars meaningis certified then it has free maintenance services offered by dealerships like Autobest for a certain period of time. The customer also has the option to buy extended warranty. But no such warranty is provided for non certified cars. 

  • If you buy a non certified car, then you should get the car checked by a mechanic yourself so that you can know about the exact condition of the car. Certified used cars often go through a lot of tests and therefore, you may or may not get it checked yourself.

  • It is important that you buy a non accidental car as it will save up on future maintenance costs and unforeseen expenditures. CPOs have to be non accidental and have a detailed history and paperwork already attached to them.

The decision to buy a certified or a non-certified car boils down to the will and finances of the buyer. One should also check out the monthly instalment amount for both options if you are getting it financed from outside.

Autobest specialises in making sure that the pre-owned cars that are sold through them don't have their odometer tempered and the cars are non-accidental cars to protect the buyer from hidden future maintenance costs. 

Private sellers also sell non-certified cars. You have to go to a verified dealer to get a certified pre owned car. Autobat prides itself on being the best and the most reliable provider of certified pre owned cars India. We have strict policy for impeccable checks and protocols, support staff, customer support and an unprecedented commitment towards quality. ABE provides car deals in good quality pre-owned cars from all segments without any hidden or implicit costs or hefty maintenance charges, making it the perfect place to go if you wish to invest in a second hand/pre owned car.
