Purchasing a used car can be an uncertain proposition. Buying a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle is an excellent way to ensure your vehicle will operate without problems. When you get a CPO model at the Rathdrum certified pre-owned Chevrolet car dealer, you’ll have the added confidence of knowing your car, truck or SUV is of the highest quality.
The Chevrolet CPO program comes with many safeguards you won’t get with used models. If you’re in the market for a used Chevy and you’re not sure if you should pay the additional cost of a certified preowned Chevrolet for sale in Rathdrum, we’ll explain the benefits of buying a CPO model.
Only the Best Vehicles Qualify
To be accepted into Chevrolet’s certified pre-owned program, a vehicle must be a recent model with low mileage and a clean vehicle history report. Specifically, the vehicle must be within six model years of the current model and have no more than 75,000 miles on the odometer. These restrictions help to make sure your CPO model will be in excellent condition.
Multi-point Inspection and Reconditioning
To ensure that every certified pre-owned Chevrolet is in the best shape, it must pass a rigorous 172-point vehicle inspection. If anything is sub-par, the vehicle is reconditioned to bring it up to Chevrolet’s standards. Any vehicle that can’t meet these standards won’t be eligible for the CPO program.
Recall repairs are another prerequisite for CPO vehicles. Chevrolet requires the dealer to perform all safety recall repairs on every certified pre-owned vehicle before it can be sold.
One major advantage of purchasing a CPO model is the limited warranty. All certified pre-owned Chevrolets include two manufacturer warranties:
This warranty is transferable and includes 24-hour roadside assistance while the powertrain warranty is in effect.
Complimentary Scheduled Maintenance Program
Every certified pre-owned model comes with two complimentary maintenance visits during the first two years or 24,000 miles. These visits include oil and filter changes, tire rotations and multi-point inspections.
Guarantee of Satisfaction
Chevy CPO models come with a satisfaction guarantee. If you’re unsatisfied with your purchase, you can exchange it for another model within three days or 150 miles from the date of purchase. This guarantee is exclusive to certified pre-owned models.
Chevrolet CPO models equipped with OnStar come with a three-month trial of the OnStar emergency telematics service. OnStar features automatic crash response, turn-by-turn navigation, roadside assistance and advanced diagnostics.
SiriusXM Satellite Radio Trial
Chevrolet CPO vehicles with satellite radio get a three-month trial of SiriusXM All Access, including over 150 channels featuring music, news, talk and more. Owners can also listen to the service via an app and online.
Free Vehicle History Report
Only the best pre-owned cars, trucks and SUVs get to be Chevrolet certified pre-owned models. We provide a free Carfax Vehicle History Report with every CPO vehicle to confirm that the model hasn’t experienced significant problems.
