Certified Pre-Owned Benefits
Take the wheel with confidence.
Everything you need to know when you buy a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.
THE CERTIFIED ADVANTAGE
Before you buy a Certified Pre-Owned Chevy, Buick, or GMC, we make sure you get top-quality vehicles, $2,1351 built-in value, and all the tools you need to make an informed decision. After you buy, our Owner Care Program, including our exclusive 2-Year/24,000-Mile CPO Scheduled Maintenance Plan2, provides benefits that will give you the confidence to ensure that your purchase and ownership experience will be worry-free.
The name “Certified” has always meant passing our strict standards, but now it also means Owner Care: a vehicle benefits package that raises our already great coverage to new heights. It’s why our vehicles deliver more satisfaction and certainty than any ordinary used vehicle.
BEFORE YOU BUY
All Pre-Owned vehicles must go through a strict evaluation and meet our premium manufacturing standards to earn the Certified title. Vehicles will qualify for the evaluation if they comply with the following requirements:
- Be a Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC
- Be within current plus-5 model years
- Be within a maximum of 75,000 vehicle miles
- Pass our 172-Point Vehicle Inspection and Reconditioning Process
- Have a clean title
- Come with a Vehicle History Report
172-POINT VEHICLE INSPECTION AND RECONDITIONING PROCESS
This is not your regular, every-day used vehicle. Certified status is a name that is earned, and earned only by meeting our strict, factory-set standards. If it doesn’t pass, we completely recondition it. Our 172-point vehicle inspection is one of the most comprehensive in the industry — and just one of the differences between a regular used vehicle and a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC.
VEHICLE HISTORY REPORT
We’re proud of — and have confidence in — every vehicle we sell. Which is why all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC come with a detailed Vehicle History Report. Now you can be sure the vehicle that you’re purchasing doesn’t have any hidden past problems like major accidents, fires or title issues.
AFTER YOU BUY
We take hassle-free ownership seriously. Our CPO Scheduled Maintenance plan helps you keep your vehicle in top condition with our no-charge scheduled maintenance. Every Certified Pre-Owned Chevy, Buick, and GMC vehicle comes with the 2-Year/24,000-Mile1 CPO Scheduled Maintenance Plan (maximum four service events), including:
- Oil and oil filter changes
- Tire rotations
- Multi-point inspections
You’ll not only drive off the lot with certainty and satisfaction, but you’ll be able to come back to your participating Certified Pre-Owned dealer for the best possible auto service on your GM Certified vehicle. It’s just one more way that Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles from Chevy, Buick, and GMC deliver you the value of a used vehicle with the confidence of a new one.
The coverage begins when you purchase your Certified Pre-Owned vehicle and lasts for 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. Scheduled Vehicle Maintenance is also transferable to subsequent owners if the vehicle is still within the terms of 2 years or 24,000 miles. If you already own a Certified Pre-Owned Chevy, Buick, or GMC that has our exclusive 2-Year/24,000-Mile CPO Scheduled Maintenance Plan, schedule service with us.
