Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

Used vehicles are a great option when you are purchasing a vehicle especially for those that are looking to save money! However, we know that purchasing a used vehicle can be a little nerve-wracking and you may feel some apprehension because the full history of the vehicle is not available. All your fears are taken care of when you purchase a certified pre-owned vehicle. Certified pre-owned vehicles are different than other used vehicles because they have to meet certain standards set out by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles of North America the owner of Chrysler. Some of the standards set out by FCA include that there can only be a certain amount of miles on the odometer and the car must fall in a certain age range from the initial production date. Certified pre-owned vehicles can offer new owners confidence and peace of mind with their purchase because they come with a warranty and they know that all the parts are in good running condition. 

How does a vehicle earn the "Certified Pre-Owned" moniker from FCA?

FCA has very stringent requirements and in order to meet them, each Chrysler vehicle has to undergo a reconditioning process using only authenticated Mopar parts and an extensive 125-point inspection. There are five requirements from FCA that every Chrysler Vehicle must meet before the vehicle moves to the inspection stage. These five requirements are: any aftermarket accessories placed in or on the vehicle cannot compromise the safety or operation of the vehicle, a clean title, there cannot be any frame damage, the vehicle must be five model years old or newer, and there must be less than 75,000 miles on the vehicle. The inspection these cars undergo is comprehensive and covers every last detail of the vehicle. The different parts of the inspection include appearance standards (inside and outside interior condition and detail), maintenance standards (these cover the fluid inspections and any changes), and a pre- and post-road test. They also cover mechanical standards (vehicle comfort. Braking performance, powertrain performance, powertrain performance, equipment operation, steering performance, operation checks, and underhood checks). They also check to make sure all the owner manuals are present. 

Do I get anything else when I purchase a Certified Pre-Owned Chrysler?

You get a ton of great things when you purchase a CPO Chrysler! In addition to the inspection and reconditioning you also get a 7-year or 100k mile Powertrain Limited Warranty that is backed by the factory (this warranty covers repair of most of the major powertrain components like driveline, engine, and transmission). You also get a 3-month or 3k mile Maximum Car Coverage Warranty (this warranty covers most vehicle components over 5,000 dollars). You also gain a three-month introductory subscription to satellite radio from SiriusXM, an allowance for car rentals during repairs, towing assistance and roadside assistance 24/7, and a complete CARFAX report!
