Certified Pre-Owned Land Rovers vs. Used Land Rovers: What’s the Difference?

Two Land Rover SUVs face-to-face.For customers who are interested in other options besides buying or leasing a new vehicle, certified pre-owned and used Land Rovers may both be tempting options. Land Rover’s rugged, powerful, and elegant vehicles sit at the top of all luxury off-road driving choices, and they are built to last with quality British engineering.

However, certified pre-owned vehicles, which are a subset of used vehicles that are officially tested and approved by the manufacturer, offer assurance of exceptional quality and the peace of mind that comes with a rigorous check.

What is a Certified Pre-Owned Car?

Certified pre-owned vehicles are late-model cars that have been repurchased by the dealer or manufacturer after use by a previous driver and are resold after undergoing a certification process. This level of certification is what distinguishes them from other used vehicles, and automakers usually offer various other benefits with their certified pre-owned models – Land Rover has among the most robust and comprehensive certified pre-owned programs in the luxury auto industry.

Land Rover Certified Pre-Owned Program

Land Rover will only allow vehicles that have been maintained to the highest quality standards to even enter its certification program. All Land Rover CPO cars must be five years old or less, have 60,000 miles or fewer on the odometer, and only ever used genuine Land Rover OEM parts, and these claims must be backed by a vehicle history report.

The Land Rover Approved Certified Pre-Owned process begins with a 165-point inspection covering every aspect and system of the car. Land Rover’s technicians use proprietary diagnostic tools and their years of knowledge about these finely-crafted vehicles to scrutinize the paintwork, interior, engine, suspension, electronics, and every other system. After fulfilling all 165 requirements and passing a road test, the vehicle can finally qualify as Land Rover Approved Certified Pre-Owned.

All Land Rover Approved Certified Pre-Owned cars are covered by an additional limited warranty (one year/unlimited miles supplied by Ray Catena or two year/100,000 miles available) on top of its new car warranty, and Land Rover offers 24-hour roadside assistance for the duration of the warranty period.
