Top certified preowned cars under $25,000
After analyzing more than 7,000 car combinations over the past five model years, automotive research firm Vincentric recently announced its 2013 awards for the best certified preowned cars in America. CPO cars undergo an extensive inspection and usually have an extended manufacturer warranty.
The list, which assumes 15,000 annual miles over five years, is based on total car ownership costs plus finance rates, residual values and maintenance schedules. For Bankrate.com, Vincentric assessed 2008-2012 certified preowned cars with an average market price of less than $25,000.
