What is a Certified Pre-Owned Car?

ChevyIf you are shopping for a used vehicle and looking for an option that you know you can rely on, a certified pre-owned car from Chevy is your best bet. These vehicles offer a blend of quality and value you can’t find anywhere else. And when you buy one, you drive off the lot knowing that your car is in great shape and ready to run for years to come. Learn more about certified pre-owned cars, and then plan a trip to Sunrise Chevrolet in Glendale Heights to check out all the certified models we have in our extensive inventory.

How Does a Pre-Owned Car Get Certified?

The process is actually quite rigorous. A pre-owned vehicle can only earn the certified designation after undergoing a 172-point full-vehicle inspection conducted by a qualified mechanic according to strict specifications outlined by the automaker. This front to back, top to bottom inspection looks closely at all the mechanical components to ensure that the car still runs perfectly. But it also takes into consideration the condition of the upholstery, wheels, and lots more to verify that these vehicles are of the highest overall quality.

What Benefits Do Certified Pre-Owned Cars Offer?

In addition to looking and running great, these cars come with a number of appealing incentives and special offers that make them an even better value. Anyone that buys a certified pre-owned car from GM/Chevy is entitled to receive a 12-month /12,000-mile bumper to bumper limited warranty, as well as a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. Plus, drivers will receive two years of complimentary scheduled maintenance, meaning that you won’t have to pay for oil changes, tire rotations, or other regular expenses associated with vehicle ownership. Finally, drivers will receive no-cost 24/7 roadside assistance and courtesy transportation, and a three-month trial of OnStar and satellite radio. All told, this is $2,135 of built-in-value that you get only if you purchase a certified pre-owned car.
