CAR COACH, Best Used Cars, Finance Deals

WASHINGTON: When you need a new car, it’s tempting to buy the cheapest one you can. As long as that car gets you from point A to point B. Certified pre-owned (CPO) cars can be a great choice for many reasons, automakers offer special incentives on their CPO vehicles, much like they do on their new cars.

New car inventory is at record lows, so automakers are counting on used car sales. In addition, manufacturers and dealers understand that many people are facing tough financial times and unable to commit to purchasing or leasing a new vehicle. For this reason, they’re offering extra savings through cashback or low-interest financing offers, as well as deferred payments for several months.
