ATLANTA, Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- As new model year vehicles begin to find their way into dealerships, the back half of the year is a great time to take advantage of deals on available certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles.
"The extra cost of a certified pre-owned vehicle may seem like a lot, but it provides more peace of mind than a regular used car," said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. "You can't discount the value of a comprehensive inspection, which every CPO vehicle goes through, and the added perks of CPO are a great option for buyers to consider."
The editors at Autotrader have rounded up some of the best CPO deals to help shoppers find that perfect certified pre-owned vehicle to get through the dog days of summer.
