Considering used vehicles is a smart strategy for all shoppers, but one of the most important decisions to make at the start of your search is whether to focus on pre-owned vehicles or Certified Pre-Owned options. Both have different advantages, and what is right for one person may not be right for another – particularly because of all the benefits that Certified Pre-Owned Land Rover models provide. Consult the pros and cons below, and expect to find a variety of pre-owned options at Land Rover Charleston.

Pre-Owned Land Rover

Pros

  • Quality – All certified pre-owned vehicles at Land Rover Charleston undergo a 165-point quality inspection before being certified. They also come backed by a 7-year/100,000-mile limited warranty that requires you to pay a $0 warranty deductible for repairs. Plus, if vehicle issues every interrupt your travel plans, Land Rover will even reimburse you in many cases.
  • Perks – To boost your confidence even further, all Land Rover certified pre-owned vehicles come backed by complementary 24-hour roadside assistance. And if you decide to sell your vehicle while the warranty is still active, it will seamlessly transfer to the new owner, helping you to secure a higher sales price.

Cons
