Top Certified Pre-Owned Car Deals for July

July is the time for backyard barbecues, road trips and fun with family and friends. It’s also a great time to shop summer’s sale events. With a lot of summer left to enjoy, consumers have plenty of time to take advantage of discounted prices, and if shoppers are in the market for a car, consider shopping certified pre-owned (CPO) for additional incentives.

“For shoppers that are looking for great value in their next car, but are concerned about the potential repair bills that could crop up with a used car, a certified pre-owned model is a good option,” said Brian Moody, Autotrader executive editor.

The expert editors at Autotrader are excited to announce their list of the best certified pre-owned deals offered for July.

Autotrader Editors’ Top Picks for Certified Pre-Owned Deals for July 2017

Audi’s certified pre-owned program is even more enticing thanks to an excellent incentive from the automaker: through the end of August, Audi is offering just 2.49 percent interest on all 2012 through 2016 certified pre-owned models (except the exotic R8 sports car) for up to 66 months — a long term and a great rate, especially for a pre-owned vehicle.

Cadillac’s certified pre-owned program is offering qualified shoppers 2.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on any certified pre-owned 2015 or newer SRX, combining a great deal and the peace of mind that comes with a manufacturer-backed warranty.

Kia’s certified pre-owned program is sweetened even further in July: through the end of the month, qualified shoppers interested in a certified pre-owned Kia can get 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on any and all CPO Kia models — an excellent deal for a used vehicle.

Mazda’s certified pre-owned program offers two desirable warranties for shoppers interested in adding some manufacturer-backed peace of mind to a used car. Mazda is currently offering a special incentive on CPO vehicles: through the end of September, Mazda is touting 1.49 percent interest for up to 36 months on all CPO models.

Mercedes-Benz’s certified pre-owned program offers shoppers interested in a CPO CLA a good deal this month: through the end of July, Mercedes is offering 1.99 percent interest on all CPO 2014-2016 CLA models for up to 36 months — a good offer that beats out Mercedes’ usual new-car rates.

MINI’s certified pre-owned program roughly mirrors parent company BMW’s, and that’s a good thing. In July, MINI is offering an even bigger incentive than its excellent warranty for shoppers to consider a certified pre-owned model. Through the end of the month, drivers interested in a good deal on a CPO MINI can get 0.9 percent interest on any certified pre-owned 2013 or 2014 model. For drivers looking to pay cash, MINI is offering up to $500 cash back on certified pre-owned 2013 and 2014 models — a rare cash back deal on a CPO vehicle.

Toyota’s certified pre-owned program offers two big warranty benefits for drivers interested in getting a used car with the peace of mind that comes from a manufacturer-backed warranty. In July, the deal is sweetened even further on the popular Toyota Camry Hybrid: through the end of October, Toyota is offering certified pre-owned versions of the fuel-efficient Camry Hybrid with 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months — a great deal on a used model.

Volvo’s certified pre-owned program is among the very best, as it offers 7 years or 100,000 miles of comprehensive coverage from the original sale date. In July, Volvo is also offering a special incentive on the certified pre-owned 2015 S60 sedan. Through the end of the month, shoppers who buy a CPO 2015 S60 can get 0 percent interest for up to 24 months — a strong deal, as most automakers won’t offer 0 percent interest on their certified pre-owned models.
