More value. More confidence.
Our improved CPO benefits program isbetter than ever.

THE CERTIFIED ADVANTAGE

Introducing our improved CPO benefits package. For starters, we've extended the Powertrain Limited Warranty to 6 years or 100,000 miles[1] for greater peace of mind. Plus, every Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC vehicle is inspected and reconditioned by authorized factory technicians to meet GM standards. There's more. We look out for you even after your purchase with our exclusive CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program[2] with two included maintenance visits. Altogether, you enjoy over $2,800 of Built-in Value[3]—that's a greater value than ever before.

BEFORE YOU BUY

All Pre-Owned vehicles must go through a strict evaluation and meet our premium manufacturing standards to earn the Certified title. Vehicles will qualify for the evaluation if they comply with the following requirements:

  • Are a Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC
  • Be within current plus-5 model years
  • Be within a maximum of 75,000 vehicle miles
  • Pass our 172-Point Vehicle Inspection and Reconditioning Process
    • IMPORTANT RECALL INFORMATION: Before a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is listed or sold, GM requires dealers to complete all safety recalls. However, because even the best processes can break down, we encourage you to check the recall status of any vehicle at recalls.gm.com.
  • Have a clean title
  • Come with a Vehicle History Report

AFTER YOU BUY

vehicle inspection

Vehicle Inspection

We check it, so you don't have to.
Vehicle Inspection and Reconditioning

Our detailed, Vehicle Inspection and Reconditioning Process is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. Before any Chevy, Buick, or GMC used vehicle earns the title of Certified Pre-Owned, it must first meet all of our rigorous standards.

Our Vehicle Inspection and Reconditioning Process is conducted only by highly trained technicians and adheres to strict, factory-set standards to ensure that every vehicle's engine, chassis, and body are in excellent condition. The technicians ensure that everything from the drivetrain to the windshield wipers is in good working order, or they recondition it to our exacting standards. The vehicles are road-tested, put up on a lift for a complete underbody and frame inspection, and then completely checked for any cosmetic flaws.

And we do check it all. From the engine block to the shocks, right down to the floor mats, no major system is overlooked. If it fails a single point, we completely recondition it—or it won't be Certified.

IMPORTANT RECALL INFORMATION: Before a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is listed or sold, GM requires dealers to complete all safety recalls. However, because even the best processes can break down, we encourage you to check the recall status of any vehicle at recalls.gm.com.
