Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles an Alternative
   to New Cars When Times Are Tight
            BY KEITH GRIFFIN

  Let’s take a break from new cars
this week and look at almost-new
cars or, as they’re commonly
called nowadays, certified pre-
owned. These are vehicles that
meet strict requirements, go
through an in-depth inspection,
and are warrantied by the manu-
facturer.
  They are incredibly hot com-
modities as new cars have been
priced out of the market for people
as sub-prime loans have dried up
for both homes and used cars.
(Many people used to finance
expensive vehicles with home
equity loans.) But, there is some
confusion out there about what
constitutes certified pre-owned. So
let me clear up some of the mis-
conceptions.
  Let me start off by announcing
that I have recently begun writing
about used cars for About.com,
which is owed by the New York
Times.        The    website       is
usedcars.about.com and it con-
tains information on all aspects of                  A certified pre-owned 2006 Audi A6 could be a strong alternative to a new car.
