Should You Buy New, Used, or Certified Pre-Owned?

You must consider a wide variety of details when shopping for a vehicle, but there's often much more to the process than simply deciding which model you like best. You also have to consider the benefits of buying a new Mazda, purchasing a pre-owned vehicle, or exploring Certified Pre-Owned models.

So, what are the benefits of each route? Why choose one over the others? It ultimately comes down to your personal preferences, but here is a brief overview of what to expect from each path:

Buying New

  • Your vehicle will be up to date
  • You'll get to enjoy the latest technology and safety features.
  • You can pick out the exact type of new vehicle you want and choose the features you need.
  • Mazda offers perks for buying new such as a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty.
  • You can typically get an amazing deal on a new car if you buy at the end of the year.

Buying Used

  • You can choose from a much larger pool of vehicles as you are limited to neither model year nor brand.
  • Used vehicles are typically more budget-friendly than their new counterparts.
  • A used vehicle that is older, but packed with features may offer you more car for less when compared to a newer vehicle without the bells and whistles.

Buying Certified Pre-Owned

  • CPO Mazda models must pass a 160-point inspection in order to be certified, offering you greater peace of mind.
  • CPO vehicles offer benefits and warranties similar to what you would find with new models, but with smaller price tags.
