It’s increasingly more difficult to get your hands on a new car these days. And that’s because the pandemic created a shortage of semiconductor microchips that in turn has put a huge dent in every car manufacturer’s maximum production capacity. But here at Karl Chevrolet, we think there’s a great way around the temporary lack of new cars on the market – buying Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned vehicles.
And that’s because when you buy a Chevrolet CPO, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to depend on that vehicles for tens of thousands of miles longer. Not to mention the fact that Chevy CPOs come with a significant price reduction when compared to similar brand-new models.
What makes a Chevrolet CPO such a reliable car?
You can argue that it’s the great warranties it comes attached with. Such as the one-year/12,000 miles (whichever comes first) bumper-to-bumper limited warranty that you can upgrade to a 6-Year/100,000-Mile limited with $0 deductible. Or the 6-Year/100,000 miles (whichever comes first) Powertrain Limited Warranty†, which also has a $0 deductible.
You can even argue that it’s because of the complimentary two maintenance visits that will last you for either two years or 24,000 miles. Or the peace of mind you get from knowing that you can come to bring back your Chevrolet CPO and exchange it for another within the first 3 days or 150 miles (whichever comes first) if there’s anything on it that you don’t like.
But as welcome as these features are, they can't hold a candle to Chevrolet's Selected-Inspected-Vetted requirement in order to give a car the CPO stamp of approval. These three vital steps in Chevy's Certification process are what put prospective buyers completely at ease when buying a Previously Owned vehicle from our dealership.
The three-step process means that a vehicle must meet a strict set of requirements in order to receive the CPO distinction. These requirements are to:
- Have a maximum age of 6 model years or fewer
- Be within a maximum of 75,000 vehicle miles
- Have a clean title
- Pass a Vehicle History Report
But it doesn’t end there as all the cars that meet the four points listed above still need to go through a 172-point inspection to earn a dealer certification, which is also a mandatory required step towards the coveted Chevy CPO title.
Put together, the steps that go into the Selected-Inspected-Vetted process make sure that all CPOs are relatively new, with few miles on board, and in perfect technical condition.
