What Is A Preowned Certified Program?

I’m sure that you have heard the term Certified Pre-owned program, but do you know what it really is?  Most people would venture to guess it is where they take better quality cars and make sure that they are running at a certain level of expectancy.  These programs go far beyond this expectation, especially for the Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep family.

To our first point, or assumption, a 125-point inspection is performed and anything failing this inspection is replaced and/or repaired.  Typically, things looked for during this inspection is qualification standards, ownership material, mechanical standards, maintenance standards, appearance standards, and detail standards.  The dealership is so confident in their work that they will guarantee the vehicle for three months or three thousand miles.  They also provide the availability of a Lifetime Certified upgrade for those who want the extra protection.

A Carfax report is run on the vehicles to ensure that they are accident free and free of any issued titles.  As we all know, sometimes things don’t work out as planned.  That is why a nice feature is the 24-hour road side assistance with towing.  This can provide you with sign and go services such as flat tire service, gas delivery, battery-jump assistance, lockout service, and towing service (typically up to $100 per event).  Another feature is a car rental allowance if the vehicle is inoperable due to the failure of a covered component and/or the repairs take overnight.

Finding the right dealer is also a major importance with this.  It is important that you find a dealer that puts all of the information in plain language directly to the consumer.  Such an example of a dealer like this is Akins Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler.  Visit their webpage for more information or give them a quick call to get a better idea of how the program works.
