ATLANTA, Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The editors at Autotrader have released their list of the top deals on certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles this holiday season. Qualified shoppers looking for the best end-of-year deals can take advantage of these compelling offers to purchase like-new vehicles at drastically reduced prices, without sacrificing the safety or reliability of a new vehicle.
"CPO vehicles are perfect for qualified shoppers who don't want to spend a fortune on a new car, but who are concerned about the repair bills that can accompany used vehicles," said Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader. "CPO vehicles come with a long manufacturer-backed warranty for increased peace of mind, and often include deals and incentives to lower already-discounted costs even more."
To help you get everything on your vehicle wish list this holiday, here are the industry's most enticing CPO deals from the editors of Autotrader.
