If you’re interested in getting a car but a new model isn’t quite in your budget, you may want to look at used cars. But at the same time, you might be concerned that a used car will have problems or issues — which makes sense. The solution is probably a certified pre-owned (CPO) car. CPO cars come with a full manufacturer-backed warranty — but they’re lightly used for a discount on the original price. That means they’re a bargain compared to a brand-new model — but it also means they feature some extra peace of mind compared to a typical used car. In June, we’ve rounded up a list of the best CPO deals and special offers from several brands, all of which make CPO cars even more attractive than usual.
BMW’s CPO program offers one year of comprehensive coverage for all vehicles — and drivers can add further coverage for an extra cost. Through the end of June, BMW is also offering another incentive: Qualified shoppers can get 1.9 percent interest for up to 48 months on CPO 2015-2017 models, which is an excellent interest rate for a pre-owned car — especially since it’s over a desirable longer term like 48 months, rather than the usual 36.

Buick Enclave, Encore
The General Motors CPO program, which covers Buick, Chevrolet and GMC, offers excellent warranty coverage: Shoppers who buy a CPO GM vehicle get an additional year of comprehensive warranty coverage, along with up to 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage. This month, shoppers who buy a CPO Buick Enclave midsize SUV or Encore compact SUV get an even better deal, as GM is offering 0.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on those vehicles.

Cadillac’s CPO program is among the best in the industry, touting six years or 100,000 miles of comprehensive warranty coverage from the original sale date. This month, Cadillac is offering several incentives on CPO vehicles — specifically the ATS compact luxury car, the SRX crossover and the Escalade SUV. All three are available with 2.9 percent interest for up to 60 months, which is an excellent deal over a desirable longer loan term. Find a Cadillac for sale
Chevrolet Equinox, Silverado, Traverse

In June, Chevy’s CPO program also offers a good deal for shoppers interested in buying an Equinox or Traverse SUV or a Silverado pickup. Through the end of the month, qualified shoppers buying those vehicles can get 0.9 percent interest for up to 36 months, which is an excellent bargain for a used vehicle — especially one that comes with a factory-backed warranty.

Ford’s CPO program offers two excellent warranties. One touts an additional year of comprehensive coverage, while the other boasts 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection. In June, Ford is offering a strong incentive for its CPO vehicles: Through the end of the month, shoppers can get 2.99 percent interest for up to 36 months on CPO models, which is a good deal for a used vehicle with a long warranty.

Land Rover Discovery Sport
The Land Rover Discovery Sport is a popular luxury crossover that straddles the line between compact and midsize, offering 3-row seating and a nice interior. Land Rover’s CPO program is especially impressive, offering comprehensive coverage for up to seven years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date. This month, you can combine the two and get a special incentive: Land Rover is offering CPO Discovery Sport models with 0.9 percent interest for up to 24 months, or 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months, which is a truly excellent bargain if you don’t mind the short loan terms.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the brand’s popular sedan that slots between its entry-level A-Class and CLA-Class and the larger E-Class. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz CPO warranty offers comprehensive coverage for up to a year, while buyers can add extra coverage for an additional cost. This month, shoppers who get a CPO C-Class can take advantage of an impressive interest rate for CPO models: 1.99 percent interest for up to 36 months on all CPO 2016, 2017 and 2018 C-Class models, which is an excellent rate for a pre-owned car.

The Nissan Altima is a popular midsize sedan known for its affordable pricing and roomy interior. Nissan’s CPO program, meanwhile, has some attractive qualities — like a 6-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty from the car’s original sale date. In June, qualified shoppers who get a CPO Altima can also take advantage of an impressive interest rate: 3.99 percent interest for up to 60 months on any CPO 2014-2018 Altima model, which is a good rate for a pre-owned car — especially with a long warranty.
