Luxury auto salesman handing over keys to car

Whether brand-new or pre-owned, Audi vehicles boast exceptional handling and premium features. If you're looking for these benefits on a budget, it's a smart choice to shop pre-owned. When you look at pre-owned vehicles, you'll find you have two choices- used vs. certified pre-owned. If you're not sure what the difference is between used vs. CPO models, discover the ups and downs of both with Audi Fletcher Jones. 

Shopping for Used Cars

Used and certified pre-owned cars have had previous owners, and consequently, come with a lower price tag. While the price is often a top consideration among used car shoppers, there are additional benefits you can get with a pre-owned Audi, such as: 

  • Decreased vehicle depreciation
  • Getting features or models that might otherwise be out of your price range
  • Vehicles can often last over 100k miles
  • Pre-owned vehicle specials making purchases more affordable
  • Lower insurance costs

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles Explained

One of the main differences between used vs. certified pre-owned models is that certified pre-owned models are part of an OEM CPO program. The vehicle must first meet certain criteria for the condition, age, and mileage to qualify for an OEM CPO program. Extended warranties are also available with CPO vehicles, which aren't always found on used vehicles. With these benefits, CPO vehicles cost more than a used vehicle, but they are still a more affordable alternative to a new vehicle. 

Audi Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program Details

Audi embodies quality in every aspect, CPO program included. To be accepted into the Audi CPO program, the vehicle must be 5 years old or newer and have less than 60,000 miles. Additionally, the vehicle must pass a 300+ point inspection that includes:
