Audi South Atlanta Certified Pre-Owned vs Used Cars

Benefits of Audi Certified Pre-Owned vs. Used Cars in the Atlanta Area

When it comes to purchasing a top-notch Audi model with great style, features, and performance, you might think that buying brand new is the only way to go. However, that's not always the case. When you consider factors like lifestyle, family, budget, etc., sometimes a quality pre-owned model makes the most sense. There are several benefits to choosing a used Audi near Atlanta, like reduced cost and depreciation, and even more benefits to choosing an Audi Certified pre-owned model. We'll go over both, below.

Benefits to Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Audi

Certified pre-owned models come with all the benefits of regular used models, and much more. Thoroughly vetted by expert technicians and warranty-backed by the OEM, certified models are a great way to enjoy the new car treatment at a used car price point. Not just any model can qualify for the Certified designation. All Audi Certified models must be no older than five model years and have fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer. If the vehicle history report is clean, the vehicle is then subjected to one of the most stringent inspection processes in the industry. Audi factory trained technicians go over each Certified candidate, reviewing more than 300 check points, to ensure it lives up to Audi’s rigid standards.

Because Certified models are late model years with low mileage, they represent a great way to slip behind the wheel of that upper trim level you may have had your eye on. When buying brand-new, the upper trim level can significantly add to the price tag. But, a Certified pre-owned model could bring that trim level or feature package within reach.

Once a vehicle is determined to be worthy of the Certified label, Audi fully backs it with excellent warranty coverage and extra benefits.

  • Audi Certified models are covered until the end of the initial 4 years/50,000 miles new vehicle warranty; after which they are covered by the Audi Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty which is good until 5 years from the original in-service date, and carries ZERO mileage restrictions.
  • The vehicle and its warranty can easily be transferred to another private owner.
  • 24-hour Roadside Assistance coverage.
  • Free loaner vehicle while car is being serviced.
  • Get SiriusXM satellite radio free for three months

For even greater peace of mind, customers can add enhanced Audi Pure Protection warranty plans for coverage beyond the scope and timeframe of the limited warranty. These include:

  • Certified pre-owned Service Contract: Full coverage for a wide range of mechanical issues outside the limited warranty.
  • Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP): Ensure full value reimbursement in the event the vehicle is totaled or stolen.
  • Audi Care: Save on regular maintenance items by pre-paying in advance.
  • Road Hazard, Tire and Wheel: Keep your wheels rolling and looking like new.
  • Ding Shield Service Plan: No need to worry about the depreciating effects of small dents and scratches.

Benefits to Buying a Used Car

The biggest inherent benefit in buying a pre-owned Audi model is, obviously, cost. Your overall investment will be lower than buying a new car. This affects not only the purchase price, but associated ancillary costs as well. Spending less money on the vehicle means spending less money on registration fees, as well as significantly reduced insurance premiums. That’s money you can put towards filling the gas tank, maintenance items, and even parts and accessories.

A used model also doesn’t lose its value as quickly as a new one. A brand new car experiences its greatest depreciation within the first three years. After that, the decline in value is much more gradual. By selecting a used model, you can skip the depreciation and your new-to-you ride will hold its worth for longer.

There’s also much more data on used cars. More people have driven a model that came out three years ago than a model that came out this year. That means more people have had time to write reviews and give their opinions, making researching easier.
