Chrysler Certified Pre-Owned Program


Chrysler’s certified pre-owned (CPO) program offers surprisingly limited bumper-to-bumper coverage, touting just 3 months or 3,000 miles of protection from the day you buy your car (or, if the car is still covered by the original warranty when you buy it, from the day that warranty expires). The brand’s powertrain plan is better because it offers 7 years or 100,000 total miles from the original sale date. While the warranty is fully transferable to the next owner, it requires a $100 deductible per visit.

What We Like

Full transferability; long powertrain coverage; occasional special financing offers

What We Don’t

3-month bumper-to-bumper plan; steep $100 deductible; powertrain warranty starts on original sale date

Program Specifics

Chrysler’s certified pre-owned vehicle program offers a little extra warranty coverage, as well as a few other benefits for shoppers interested in getting some extra peace of mind when they buy a used Chrysler.

The main attraction of Chrysler’s CPO program is its powertrain warranty, which lasts for 7 years or 100,000 miles from the car’s original sale date. That’s a welcome addition of 2 years (but no extra miles) from the original factory powertrain warranty. It’s also an improvement over certified pre-owned powertrain warranties offered by rival automaker General Motors, which only offers 5 years of powertrain coverage.

Chrysler’s certified pre-owned program also includes a bumper-to-bumper component, but it’s hardly worth noting because it offers coverage for just 3 months or 3,000 miles from the day you buy the car. If the car is still under original factory bumper-to-bumper coverage when you buy it, the additional 3 months is tacked on to the end of the original warranty.

Another drawback of the Chrysler CPO warranty is that there’s a $100 deductible per repair, so any covered repair is subject to a $100 fee, which is steep when you compare it to many other automakers. If your certified Chrysler needs a new transmission, you’ll gladly pay $100, but many other automakers have a $50 deductible or no deductible at all. With that said, we like that Chrysler’s CPO warranty is fully transferable to the next owner and that many CPO Chrysler vehicles include special financing rates.

So is Chrysler’s certified pre-owned warranty worth paying extra for? It depends on the deal you get. While Chrysler’s CPO program certainly isn’t the best warranty in the business, it does offer a few benefits you can’t get with a traditional used car.
