When you're searching for a new car, crossover, SUV, or pickup, there's a lot to consider. One of the most important things to think about is what type of vehicle of vehicle you want. There's brand new, which you can lease or purchase, OR Certified Pre-Owned and used vehicles, which you can only purchase. If you've decided to purchase a used vehicle, we believe you should consider getting a Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet. But, why? Isn't a Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet just a used car with a special name? A CPO is so much more than that and the experts at Graff Bay City are here to help you learn more about this amazing program!
Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolets are used models, that are 5 model years old or newer and have 75k miles or less. In order to become a CPO, these vehicles are first put through a rigorous inspection process to ensure their quality. Once they become a CPO, they are offered to buyers with plenty of 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 of investing in a CPO vehicle, however, is getting a super reliable, almost new car at a reduced price, but with all or many of the same features you want in a brand-new car. Take a look at the information below to determine if a CPO Chevrolet is right for you!
Not only do we make sure each vehicle is 5 model years old or newer, and have 75,000 miles or less on the odometer, but we also get a comprehensive CarFax Vehicle History Report on it. This is to make sure the vehicle hasn't been in any serious accidents and doesn't have any flood damage, fire damage, or title issues that would cause problems down the road. We also check for any open recalls, warranty blocks, and identify any aftermarket modifications. For a fully transparent CPO experience, we hand these report results over to you to review before any purchase papers are signed!
Once a vehicle has been approved to become a Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned, it is then taken through the rigorous inspection process with a standard 172-point check-list. This process includes the inspection and reconditioning of 172 components, areas, and functions, including the interior and exterior cosmetics of the vehicle. If the car, crossover, truck, or SUV fails on any area of inspection, the team of Chevy experts at Graff Bay City will repair, replace, or recondition the part or area so that it's in passing condition. Each vehicle must meet each and every requirement not only for your safety, but to ensure you can enjoy your vehicle for years to come.
The limited warranties that come with the Chevrolet when it is purchased brand new are carried on to the purchaser of a CPO vehicle. This is one of the advantages you can only get with a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle! The two warranties listed below exclude normal wear and tear but do come with a $0 deductible, so you're even more protected against surprise repair costs. The Powertrain Limited Warranty also includes alternate transportation or reimbursement of transportation costs if you happen to find yourself in a less-than-ideal situation on the road. Now, that's confident coverage!
Included in the 6-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, you'll get some additional peace of mind with the 24-Hour Roadside Assistance Program. If you have any trouble with your Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, Chevrolet provides reliable response and security support, activated via the OnStar button in your vehicle or by calling (800) 243-8872. These services include towing to the closest dealership, changing a flat tire, unlocking, emergency fuel delivery, and battery jump start.
Another great reason to consider a Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet is maintenance coverage! Each vehicle comes with a 2-Year/24,000-Mile CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program, which includes two maintenance 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 the service appointment with our team at Graff Bay City!
Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is quite similar to purchasing a brand new Chevy. Why? You'll get a free 3-month trial of the OnStar. As a bonus, new CPO drivers can rock out to 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 Certified Pre-Owned purchase, you can bring it back to Graff Bay City within 3 days or 150 miles, whichever comes first. We'll make sure to understand your concerns with the vehicle and exchange it for another Chevrolet that will meet your needs.
