Purchasing a used car can sometimes be a scary proposition. Not knowing what the previous owner did with the car, what type of accidents it has been in, or what type of mechanical condition the car is really in are terrifying ideas. There is one time, however, that you can rest assured that the car you are purchasing is in like new condition, and that is when purchasing a Chevy Certified Pre Owned (CPO) vehicle. Chevy CPO vehicles are the best of the best. Join us on an adventure to discover what makes this special group of pre owned cars so much better than the rest!

What Is a Chevy CPO?

Let’s start with the basics, what exactly is a Chevy CPO car? A CPO vehicle is one that has gone through rigorous inspections and is held to an insurmountable standard, one that when held against a similar pre owned vehicle, is of a much higher quality. The essence of a Chevy CPO vehicle is that of a brand new car. The buying and owning experience of a Chevy CPO vehicle is meant to feel like that of a brand new car, with the assured hands of reliability, warranty, and peace of mind that your vehicle was treated right. For a vehicle to qualify as a Chevy CPO, it firstly, of course, must be a Chevrolet. Chevrolet is a part of the General Motor Corporation and therefore follows their certified pre-owned structure.

Chevy certified pre-owned vehicles also must be within the strict limitations to uphold the standards. For a vehicle to even be considered for certification, it must be no more than 5 model years old. The vehicle also cannot have driven more than 75,000 miles. Each vehicle must also be up-to-date on all recalls. The vehicle then has to be checked over thoroughly. Certified Pre Owned Chevy’s do not have any accidents on their record, they must be totally clean. Carfax is checked and provided for each CPO vehicle. That is the easy part of the evaluation. Next is the rigorous inspection performed by a certified Chevy technician.

CPO Inspections

The inspections by a certified tech are what really sets a Chevy CPO apart from the rest of the used car inventory out there today. Chevrolet has designed a full inspection for each pre owned model, covering the entire vehicle and ensuring that the car is in like new condition. The technician performs a 172-point inspection that covers every component of the car. This inspection checks everything from the engine and transmission down to the headlights and windshield wipers. Tire tread depth is measured, brake pad thickness is detailed, and all safety features are gone through. The vehicle is turned upside down and inside out to ensure that there are absolutely zero pre-existing conditions with the vehicle.

Following the inspection, the vehicle starts its reconditioning process. All Chevy CPO vehicles are put through a reconditioning process to shore up any issues. Any part that was marked during the inspection is checked again and replaced if necessary. Wearable items such as brakes, tires, clutch, bearings, or bushings are replaced if below a predetermined value. All fluid levels are all topped off or replaced if beyond the recommended limits of the vehicle. The recommended maintenance schedule is also caught up for all vehicles.

The end result of these rigorous inspections and tedious maintenance schedules is a vehicle that rolls onto the lot as a like new car. You can rest assured this CPO Chevy has absolutely zero issues whatsoever.

What Other Benefits Are Included With a Chevy CPO

Buying a CPO Chevy doesn’t only mean that you are getting a vehicle that has been thoroughly looked over. It means that you get the backing of the entire GM Owner Care Program as well. This program is specifically designed to provide you with an ownership experience that is bonafide and hassle-free. The Owner Care Program includes several helpful benefits to make owning a Chevy CPO vehicle easier than ever.

Plenty of Benefits

The most important benefit that is included when you purchase a Chevy CPO vehicle is the additional warranty. Every CPO Chevy comes with a 6-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and a 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. To complement these lengthy warranties, Chevy CPO vehicles come with a ZERO dollar deductible. That means that if you have ANY issue whatsoever, simply bring the car in, have the repairs done and drive back off, with zero payment out of pocket. A loaner vehicle or reimbursement will also be provided while any warranty work is being done on your vehicle.

Two scheduled maintenance visits are also provided with every CPO vehicle. You have 2 years or 24,000-miles to swing in for any scheduled maintenance and have it 100% covered by GM. This includes items such as tire rotations, multi-point inspections, and even oil changes. This is also transferable to subsequent owners if you sell your vehicle within 2 years or 24,000 miles.

As much prep work that goes into a Chevy CPO, occasionally, misfortunes do occur. If for whatever reason, you are in need any type of assistance, you won’t be left out in the cold. 24/7 Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation comes with every Chevy CPO vehicle. For the length of your warranty, Chevy will provide you with roadside assistance, day or night, rain or shine. Chevy will also provide you with courtesy transportation while your vehicle is being repaired. A loaner from the dealer and/or reimbursement of your transportation expenses will be provided.

Also included with your Chevy CPO vehicle is a 3-month OnStar Service trial and 3-month Sirius XM Satellite Radio trial. This provides you with access to all features that are included with OnStar, including turn by turn directions, roadside assistance, theft protection, and accident safety protection.

If for whatever reason you are displeased with your purchase, Chevy also has an option for you too. Through the Vehicle Exchange Program, included with every Chevy CPO car, you are able to exchange your vehicle for something else. You have a 3-day/150 mile exchange period. For any reason, whether you don’t love the color or you just added a new happy surprise to your family, the exchange policy allows you to bring your vehicle back and exchange it for one that better fits you, or your family.
