Why Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Acura

The Certified Pre-Owned Acura Inventory at Ray Laks Acura of Buffalo is the Best Combination of Value and Performance

If you pride yourself on the ability to find value, then you already likely already know the advantages of purchasing a certified pre-owned Acura.

For the uninitiated, Acura vehicles must be no more than six years old, with fewer than 80,000 miles--for starters--to earn that designation. The result is an inventory of gently pre-owned vehicles, backed by an extended factory warranty, that cost thousands less than their new counterparts.

Why are Certified Pre-Owned Inventories Growing?

The simple answer is the growing popularity of leasing. Williamsville and Orchard Park drivers who choose to lease a new Acura are required to properly service and maintain their vehicle over the length of the lease.

Additionally, they're also required to stay under a set mileage during their lease. When these Acura cars and SUVs are returned to our dealership, the result is a higher caliber of pre-owned inventory.

The Difference Between Certified Pre-Owned and Used Vehicles

Here's a rule to remember as you're narrowing your search: all Certified Pre-Owned cars are used... but not all used cars are Certified Pre-Owned. If you'd like a more detailed breakdown before making the short trip from East Aurora, that's not a problem either.

Certified Pre-Owned vs. Used

  • A 7-year, 100,000 (total) mile powertrain limited warranty.
  • CARFAX report.
  • 24-hour roadside assistance.
  • A transferable warranty.
  • A complimentary three-month trial of SiriusXM satellite radio on all properly-equipped vehicles.
  • Various other perks and benefits the friendly staff at Ray Laks Acura of Buffalo can explain for you!

Used Vehicles

Every used vehicle at Ray Laks Acura of Buffalo is properly inspected and roadworthy. However, they do lack some of the benefits of their certified pre-owned counterparts:

    • They can be older, and have higher mileage.
    • They weren't required to adhere to the ownership standards set forth by the dealership. That's not to say that used vehicles weren't properly maintained. It just means the dealership can't guarantee their service records.
    • They don't include warranties or any added coverage. Those are available for used vehicles, but at and additional fee
    • Amenities like 24-hour roadside service aren't automatically available either, unless you elect to add them on.

Is a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle the Right Choice for You?

Ultimately, you're the only one who can make that decision. However, the advantages of going that route are both prevalent and valuable. You'll head back to Grand Island or Lewistown confident in the knowledge that your certified pre-owned Acura is covered by factory limited warranties and roadside assistance.

You'll probably be smiling, too, after saving thousands than a comparable new car.
