It's the time of year to fall back into daily routines as summer winds down. Many retailers start offering back-to-school deals, and these discounts aren't just for students.
"Going CPO is a great option for car shoppers looking to get a lot while spending less," said Brian Moody, Autotrader executive editor. "All CPO vehicles undergo extensive, manufacturer-required, multi-point inspections, giving the buyer the utmost confidence that they are buying the best the brand has to offer when it comes to a pre-owned vehicle."
The expert editors at Autotrader are excited to announce their list of the best certified pre-owned deals offered for August.
Autotrader Editors' Top Picks for Certified Pre-Owned Deals for August 2017
Buick's certified pre-owned program offers two excellent warranties. One is powertrain coverage that lasts for 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date; the other touts 12 months or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage. Through the end of the month, qualified shoppers can get a certified pre-owned Buick with 1.9 percent interest -- a great deal, though it's only offered on the Buick Enclave and Encore crossovers and the LaCrosse sedan.
Chevrolet's certified pre-owned program touts two strong warranties that add peace of mind to a vehicle purchase. A powertrain warranty that lasts for 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date, and a bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers vehicles for 12 months or 12,000 miles after they're purchased. Through the end of August, qualified shoppers looking for a certified pre-owned Chevrolet can also get 1.9 percent interest -- a good deal on a used car. The offer is available on CPO versions of the Chevy Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, Silverado and Traverse.
Infiniti's certified pre-owned program is one of the very best, as it offers an excellent warranty that covers some certified pre-owned vehicles with no mileage cap -- something that's only offered by a handful of other automakers. In August, Infiniti's CPO program is even more impressive, as it's available with an excellent low-interest offer to qualified shoppers: 0.99 percent for up to 36 months.
Jaguar's certified pre-owned program is also among the best, as it boasts bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage for 7 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date -- one of the longest terms in the auto industry. In August, Jaguar is touting several excellent incentives for qualified shoppers looking to finance one of the brand's certified pre-owned vehicles. Jaguar is offering 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on 2014 and 2015 XF models, along with 2.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on the larger XJ. Jaguar even has a good deal available on the F-TYPE sports car, touting 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months.
Land Rover's certified pre-owned program mirrors that of its sister brand, Jaguar, and its impressive warranty is identical: 7 years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the original sale date, which is one of the best CPO warranties in the business. Through the end of the month, Land Rover is offering 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on 2014 and 2015 Range Rover Sport and Evoque models, along with 1.9 percent interest for the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Toyota's certified pre-owned program is also noteworthy, touting 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage from the original sale date, plus an additional 12 months or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage. This month, qualified buyers can combine the excellent Sienna and Toyota's great CPO warranty with a great deal: 2.9 percent interest for up to 60 months, which is a long term for such a low rate.
Volkswagen's certified pre-owned program boasts an extra 2 years or 24,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage, touting excellent warranty protection for shoppers interested in a used VW with the peace of mind that comes from a manufacturer-backed warranty.
