If you’re looking to save even more money by buying a certified pre-owned vehicle, check out the current CPO incentives CPO Deals
If you’re like many drivers, you’re probably worried about spending a fortune on a brand new car — but you’re also nervous and potential repair bills associated with buying a used one. If that sounds like you, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle. CPO cars often come with big discounts compared with brand-new models — but they also include manufacturer-backed warranties for additional peace of mind. As an added bonus, many automakers offer CPO deals and incentives on certified pre-owned cars — and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites that are available in March.
GMC Acadia and Terrain
The GMC Acadia and the Terrain are popular crossovers. The Acadia offers 3-row seating for families, and the Terrain is a bit smaller. GMC’s CPO program, meanwhile, offers excellent coverage, boasting 6 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date, along with an extra year of comprehensive warranty coverage. Combine them, and in March you have a good deal: through the end of the month, qualified shoppers can get a CPO Acadia or a Terrain with 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months.
