ATLANTA, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — This time of year the automotive market is dominated by the arrival of new models, but savvy car shoppers shouldn’t focus solely on the latest vehicles at dealer showrooms. New cars also mean more trade-ins and recent off-lease vehicles, which translates into attractive certified pre-owned options.
“The comprehensive inspection process, incentives and warranties for certified pre-owned vehicles changes the game for how car shoppers should look for their next vehicle,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “With cars less than a few years old back on the market, you could even end up with a certified pre-owned vehicle that’s part of the 2018 model year.”
The editors at Autotrader have rounded up some of the best CPO deals to help shoppers find that perfect certified pre-owned vehicle this month.
Autotrader Editors’ Top Picks for Certified Pre-Owned Deals for September 2018
BMW’s certified pre-owned program offers a year of comprehensive warranty coverage, while shoppers can extend coverage at an extra cost.

Through the end of the month, BMW is touting 1.99 percent interest on all certified pre-owned 2015 and 2016 i3 models for up to 24 months — an enticing deal on a car whose values are already highly alluring on the used market.
Cadillac’s certified pre-owned program is even more alluring this month thanks to special incentives offered on the ATS entry-level luxury car, the Escalade SUV and the SRX crossover. Through September 13, qualified shoppers who choose a CPO version of one of those models can get 2.9 percent interest for up to 36 months, which is a good term for a used vehicle.
Ford’s certified pre-owned program offers excellent coverage, touting seven years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection, in addition to an additional year of comprehensive coverage. Through the end of September, Ford is touting low interest rates for qualified shoppers, boasting 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months, 2.9 percent for up to 60 months or 3.9 percent for up to 72 months — all excellent terms on used vehicles.

Nissan’s certified pre-owned program offers seven years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the car’s original sale date.

Subaru’s certified pre-owned program touts additional powertrain coverage over the factory warranty, boasting coverage for seven years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.
