When you’re in the market for a used Mazda in Toronto, you may be unsure about whether or not you’re better off looking for certified pre-owned or plain old used. You’ve probably heard about CPO, but you’re not sure if it’s worth the extra expense or how it’s different from a used vehicle. Certified pre-owned cars are inspected by the manufacturer, i.e., by a factory mechanic, once it’s traded in off-lease, and it must meet certain criteria that help safeguard the car’s quality when you become its new owner.
Certified pre-owned Mazdas in Toronto typically come onto the lot after their leases are up, leases that usually have mileage per year limitations. Once these vehicles are off-lease, a Toronto Mazda dealer like Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda will put them through a 160-point inspection to make sure that they’re up to snuff. You can save thousands of dollars on a certified pre-owned Mazda that’s only a couple of years old, without buying one that’s already been heavily used. To see what’s available now at Mazda dealers in Toronto, you can browse inventory at http://www.yorkdaledufferinmazda.ca/ and find the certified pre-owned Mazda you want.
Besides the factory mechanic’s approval on their 160-point inspection, a certified pre-owned Mazda will come will several other features you won’t find in a used vehicle:
• An extended factory warranty and extended factory warranty on parts • More of those “new car perks” from dealers like Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda, such as 24-hour roadside assistance and a 30-day/3,000-kilometre exchange privilege
The only downside to buying a certified pre-owned Mazda is that peace of mind costs a little extra, so you should expect to pay a little more on a CPO than a non-certified used Mazda in Toronto.
If you’re buying non-certified, it doesn’t hurt to do a bit of research. Find out if it’s ever been in an accident that would affect its performance or life expectancy. You should expect to walk away with a reliable set of wheels that will get you to work and take care of your everyday life as a family, all at a reliable price. You can run the vehicle identification number to find out if it’s ever been in an accident before, inspect the vehicle yourself, or hire a mechanic to look for signs that it’s been in an accident. They can identify issues such as crooked or asymmetrical seams in the hood, trunk, or doors that indicate the vehicle’s been involved in a collision.
Buying a CPO or used car in Toronto is always a smart move for the driver on a budget. In the first year, the value of a new car depreciates by about 20 percent, and in two years it can be as high as 40 percent. Buying used means you avoid that steep depreciation in value, which also means you need a smaller loan and can save money when it comes to financing. With a certified pre-owned Mazda, you can save money without having to worry about the quality of the car. Visit us at a local dealer to take a used vehicle for a test drive and save.
