"With the average transaction price of new cars topping $35,000, many shoppers might be surprised how expensive it can be to simply get a new version of their existing car," said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. "Certified pre-owned vehicles are the perfect solution. You get the peace of mind a factory backed warranty brings, a car that's been thoroughly inspected prior to purchase, new-car-like financing deals and a more budget-friendly price."

The expert editors at Autotrader are excited to announce their list of the best certified pre-owned deals offered for March.

Autotrader Editors' Top Picks for Certified Pre-Owned Deals for March 2018
