ATLANTA, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Car buyers can expect the deals to continue this month as dealerships look to clear inventory and close the year strong. December typically has a high monthly volume of new car sales with many car shoppers looking to buy luxury vehicles, which also can translate into attractive used car options from trade-ins.
"Dealerships are highly motivated in December to close sales across their entire inventory, both new and used," said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. "The high discount month means smart shoppers can find great options and value in certified pre-owned vehicles. CPO programs have many added-value perks and you can't overlook the importance of the comprehensive inspection every CPO vehicle undergoes."
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.
