Spring is here, and so are fresh sales for certified pre-owned vehicles. Autotrader has come out with its latest list of top deals that shoppers can jump on throughout March.

The list includes Volvo’s CPO program, which offers qualified buyers interested in zero-percent interest for up to 24 months this month.

“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,” Autotrader executive editor Brian Moody said in a news release. “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.”

Autotrader editors' top picks for certified pre-owned deals for March include:


In conjunction with offering incentives on the 4 Series and 5 Series CPO models, this month, the automaker has added an additional year of coverage to follow the factory warranty period. Qualified buyers can get zero-percent interest for up to 24 months and two payment credits on those models.


The brand provides a special offer to qualified buyers on both its Enclave and Encore models this month. In addition to a 1.9-percent interest rate for up to 36 months, qualified shoppers can get powertrain coverage for up to six years or 100,000 miles, as well as bumper-to-bumper coverage for up to one year.


Along with both a seven-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and a one-year, 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, Ford is offering 1.9-percent interest for up to 36 months, 2.9 percent for 48 months and 3.9 percent for 60 months.


In addition to six years of bumper-to-bumper coverage that includes no mileage limit, this month, qualified CPO buyers can receive 1.25-percent interest for up to 36 months on Infiniti CPOs.


Beginning at the end of its standard warranty coverage, the brand also offers one year of bumper-to-bumper coverage. And through the end of the month, qualified Mercedes-Benz shoppers can purchase the CLA and C-Class models with 1.99-percent interest.


Through the end of March, the brand is offering seven years or 100,000 miles of powertrain warranty protection and qualified shoppers can get 1.95-percent interest for up to 36 months or 3.99 percent for up to 72 months.


The automaker touts powertrain coverage of up to seven years or 100,000 miles from the original date of sale combined with offering interest rates from 1.49 percent for up to 36 months.


This March, qualified Volvo shoppers interested in the 2015 S60 can get zero-percent interest for up to 24 months along with seven years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage.
