Chevrolet’s certified pre-owned program offers a 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty that starts the day you buy your CPO Chevrolet, or from the date the original warranty stops if the car is still under warranty when you buy it. It also includes the remainder of the car’s original 6-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The plan is fully transferable to subsequent owners and requires no deductible.
What We Like
Fully transferable warranty; zero deductible; 3-day exchange program; special offers
What We Don’t
Powertrain warranty starts from original sale date instead of CPO customer’s purchase date
If you’re looking to add a little more peace of mind to your next used-car purchase, you might consider Chevrolet’s certified pre-owned program. Not only does it come with the benefit of a manufacturer-backed warranty, but it also adds a few more alluring benefits over a typical used car.
Those benefits are some of the warranty’s primary perks. For example, each certified pre-owned vehicle includes a 172-point inspection and a free vehicle-history report. Chevrolet’s certified warranty is also fully transferable, and there’s no deductible for repair work. On some models, Chevrolet also offers special financing rates beyond what you’d get from a standard used car. In addition, the plan offers a scheduled maintenance program, which includes two service visits over 2 years or 24,000 miles, as well a free trial period of OnStar services and SiriusXM satellite radio. Finally, if you’re not satisfied with the certified Chevrolet vehicle you’ve purchased for any reason, you have 3 days or 150 miles to exchange it for another vehicle. The brand’s certified pre-owned powertrain warranty touts 6 years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the original purchase date, which is a competitive figure in the CPO world. Meanwhile, the bumper-to-bumper warranty touts 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage starting the day you purchase the vehicle. That’s average coverage among certified pre-owned programs.
Chevrolet’s CPO plan has some appeal, largely based on its full transferability, special financing rates, zero deductible and generous powertrain warranty coverage. As a result, we think Chevy’s CPO coverage may be worth a premium over a standard used car — especially if you’re a little uneasy about buying a used vehicle. Find a CPO Chevrolet for sale
