What is the Difference Between Used and Certified Cadillac Models?

While you’re searching for your next pre-owned vehicle around Lansing and Owosso, you’ll likely come across both used and Certified Pre-Owned inventory, both of which offer savings over a new model. But understanding the difference between these two types of pre-owned Cadillac inventory isn’t always easy, and Shaheen Cadillac is here to help. Just visit us from Grand Ledge or Jackson to find your next pre-owned Cadillac model today!

Used Vs Certified

While both used and Certified Cadillac models have seen previous owners, only Certified models have a pedigree that guarantees you a level of quality in your purchase. While used inventory may cost a bit less, Certified Cadillac models offer a series of benefits that you won’t always get with used inventory.

Certified Cadillac Models

To make the jump from used to Certified status, a pre-owned Cadillac model has to go through a rigorous inspection and reconditioning process. Here, our trained Cadillac technicians check nearly every component of the vehicle for quality. Engine and transmission performance are both bench tested and test driven, while suspension and brake components are visually inspected for any excessive wear and tear. All electronic components are tested as well, and of course, vehicle damage either inside or out will disqualify a Cadillac model from becoming certified. Anything that needs repair or replacement will be taken care of using genuine Cadillac parts, and if it can’t be brought up to our rigorous standards, it won’t get the certified stamp of approval.

Certified Benefits

When you buy a Certified Cadillac model, you’ll enjoy several benefits including a one-year, unlimited mileage warranty that protects you against breakdowns and repair costs. You can also take advantage of 24-hour roadside assistance throughout the duration of the warranty period, and any Cadillac Certified Service Center can take care of you should you experience an issue while on a road trip.
