Buying a used vehicle is a great way to save money, but sometimes, the quality of a used vehicle isn't always worth the lower price. New vehicles have the advantage of being brand new and have never been used, but they can cost a pretty penny at times. If you're looking for a vehicle that has like-new quality and a price tag closer to that of a pre-owned vehicle, then consider a certified pre-owned vehicle at Dave Smith Motors. Explore our inventory of certified pre-owned vehicles when you visit us and set up a test drive of any of our available models. 

Certified Pre-Owned vs. Pre-Owned Cars Near Washington

What is the difference between certified pre-owned and standard pre-owned vehicles? All certified pre-owned vehicles are pre-owned, but not all pre-owned vehicles are certified pre-owned. A certified pre-owned vehicle is a used vehicle that undergoes a more rigorous and thorough inspection process than a standard pre-owned vehicle. So, because of the higher requirements for this type of vehicle, a certified pre-owned vehicle has a better assurance of high quality than a standard pre-owned vehicle. However, since a certified pre-owned vehicle is still technically pre-owned, it has a lower price tag than a new model. For these reasons, certified pre-owned vehicles are an excellent middle ground for buyers looking for used prices and like-new quality.
