Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles in Edmonton, AB
Changing your mind about used cars
Many of us have heard the term “Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle” thrown around when shopping for a new or used car in Edmonton. It may sound like some fancy term that car dealers throw at you to charge more money for a used car for sale on their lot, but after looking more into certified pre-owned vehicle programs available in Canada you may quickly change your mind on that. Currently being offered on over 16 vehicle manufacturers in Canada, including Acura, BMW, Honda, and Nissan the certified pre-owned program was set up to provide a guarantee to the customer from not only the dealership, but the manufacturer as well. Any pre-owned vehicle purchased in Edmonton that has been branded with a Certified Pre-Owned tag means you are getting the highest quality of used vehicle available for sale.
Let us start by taking a look at the Acura Certified Pre-Owned Program. A new Acura vehicle is guaranteed to offer a luxury experience and exceptional comfort, so what can Acura do to ensure the same experience provided on their used models? By instilling the Certified Pre-Owned brand it ensures that dealerships such as West Side Acura carefully pick apart all of their used Acuras prior to resale on their lot.
This inspection and warranty is one of the most thorough of any certified pre-owned program offered by other manufacturers. The program begins by weeding out candidates that will not be able to meet the high requirements to become a Certified Pre-Owned Acura. By making sure the vehicle passes certain criteria before an inspection is even done makes sure that every Acura will have maximum durability and performance.
Once eligible candidates are selected the vehicle is sent off to be inspected by a trained Acura technician. The 125-point mechanical inspection consists of trained Acura mechanics dissecting all vehicle systems including brakes, steering and suspension, exhaust, tires, wheels, engine and powertrain, as well as the inside and outside of the vehicle. Any vehicle part found that does not meet expectations is then replaced with a Genuine Acura Part or restored to great condition, making sure that the Acura lasts for many years and exceeds expectations at the same time.
Wow - Win With This Warranty - 7 Years or 130,000km!
After undergoing the 125-point Acura specific mechanical inspection the vehicle then receives an extended and transferable Acura Certified Warranty of up to 7 years or 130,000 KM. If that isn’t enough then you have further peace of mind knowing that there is a 7 day /1,000 KM exchange policy, 24/7 Roadside Assistance program, and preferred Acura interest rates.
Those financing the purchase of their used Acura in Edmonton see further advantages when purchasing a certified pre owned Acura such as the CSX, MDX, RDX, or any other Acura model because of the preferred interest rates obtained with Acura Financial Services. As opposed to purchasing a typical used vehicle which may not be financed over the same length of period or only at a higher percentage, Acura is offering preferred rates for those who qualify when they purchase their pre-owned Acura model. The rates vary based on which used Acura you purchase in Edmonton however no matter which one you go with you will be saving more money with the pre-owned advantage.
With these advantages of looking at a Certified Pre-owned vehicle it is no wonder that more dealerships are offering the service and more certified vehicles are being sought after by those in the market for a used vehicle. By making the vehicles more affordable through preferred interest rates, more durable with a more thorough inspection, and having it backed by the manufacturer it is easy for dealerships like West Side Acura to stand behind what a certified pre-owned vehicle can deliver to you today.
