If you're searching for a new car, crossover, SUV, or truck, there's a lot to consider. One of the most important things to think about is what type of vehicle you want. There are brand new models, which you can lease or purchase. Or, if you’ve decided to purchase a used vehicle, we believe you should consider getting a certified pre-owned Chevrolet. Also known as “CPOs”, these vehicles are a more budget-friendly alternative to buying brand new, while also being more reliable than normal used vehicles. A common misconception is that Chevrolet certified pre-owned means the same thing as “used”, which is not the case. At Graff Bay City, our experts are here to explain why you should consider buying a Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicle when you’re looking for a new ride.
Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicles are used models that are five years old or newer and have 75,000 miles or less. In order to be deemed Chevrolet certified pre-owned, the vehicle must pass a thorough inspection process to ensure their quality before they even hit the lot. Once a vehicle becomes a certified pre-owned Chevrolet, it is offered to buyers with plenty of great benefits including a 3-day or 150-mile satisfaction guarantee, limited warranties, 24-hour roadside assistance, trip interruption protection, and free OnStar and SiriusXM trials. One of the biggest advantages to buying a Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicle, however, is getting like-new reliability at a reduced price. Take a look at the information below to determine if a Chevrolet pre-owned certified car, truck, SUV, or crossover is right for you!
Not only is every Chevrolet CPO vehicle determined to be five years old or newer and have less than 75,000 miles, but they also include detailed vehicle history reports from CarFax! This is to make sure that it hasn’t been in any serious accidents or suffered any flood or fire damage, or title issues that would cause problems for you in the future. Additionally, all Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicles are also checked for open recalls, warranty blocks, and aftermarket modifications. For a fully transparent buying experience, we hand these details over to you for review before any purchasing papers are signed!
Once a vehicle has been approved they become Chevrolet pre-owned certified, it is then put through an intense multipoint inspection. This process involves 172 components, areas, and functions covering the interior and exterior of the vehicle. Should it fail any part of the inspection, Graff Bay City will repair, replace, or recondition the part or area until it passes. Each Chevrolet CPO vehicle must meet each and every requirement not only for your safety but to ensure that you enjoy it for years to come.
A Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicle comes with a 6-year/100,000 mile PowerTrain and 12-month/12,000 Bumper-to-Bumper limited warranty. Both warranties exclude regular wear and tear but do come with a $0 deductible for enhanced protection against surprise repair costs. The PowerTrain Limited Warranty also includes alternate transportation or reimbursement of transportation costs should you find yourself in a less-than-ideal situation on the road.
Also included in the PowerTrain limited warranty is the 24-Hour Roadside Assistance Program. If you have any trouble with your certified pre-owned vehicle, Chevrolet will provide reliable response and security support activated via the OnStar button or by calling (800) 243-8872. These services include towing to the nearest dealership, tire changes, emergency fuel delivery, and battery jump start.
Another great reason to consider a Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicle is maintenance coverage! Each vehicle comes with a 2-Year/24,000 mile CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program, which includes two service visits to a participating dealership. The services included in these visits are oil and oil filter changes, multi-point inspections, and tire rotations. All you have to do to take advantage of this feature is schedule a service appointment with our team at Graff Bay City!
Included in your purchase of a Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicle is a free 3-month trial of OnStar. As a bonus, you also get a free 3-month trial of SiriusXM All-Access in the car and online via the app. This SiriusXM package includes premium programming that sports fans will definitely enjoy like NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL games, as well as NASCAR races. There's absolutely no commitment to continuing your subscription after the trials!
It's a priority for Chevrolet that you get the vehicle you want with the reliability you need. If for any reason you aren't completely satisfied with your purchase, you can bring it back to Graff Bay City within 3 days or 150 miles, whichever comes first. We'll exchange it for another Chevrolet that will meet your needs.
