Choose: A Pre-Owned or Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz for Sale?

A term frequently employed in marketing is “pre-owned.” What exactly does it mean? What does it imply? Does it differ from the terms “used” and “certified pre-owned?” Consider the example of a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz for sale at a dealership in Philadelphia.

What Is a Used or Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz?

For sale throughout the United States, these vehicles have had at least one previous owner. They are considered a risky venture. While they may come with certain securities, they may also be prone to unforeseen or pre-existing issues.

Pre-owned vehicles fall into this same category. The term, not the actual vehicle, differs. Pre-owned is a more marketable way of saying “used.”

What is a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz?

Only licensed Mercedes-Benz dealerships can sell a certified vehicle. It may be used but it is also superior to the average or “gently used” used car. It has undergone a strict selection process and a rigorous inspection process by technicians who specialize in Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

Only vehicles that are less than 6 years of age and have 74565 miles are eligible. They must then be subjected to a 166+ Point Inspection. The technicians check both the interior and exterior for any malfunctions, damage and related issues including the components listed below:

  • Engine and transmission
  • Electrical systems
  • Fluids
  • Filters
  • Tires
  • Seat belts
  • Flooring  

One further differentiation between used/pre-owned and certified pre-owned vehicles is the warranty. Mercedes-Benz includes a generous warranty package. This is included in every certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz for sale at registered and licensed Mercedes-Benz dealerships.
