Chrysler CPO Program: Video Overview

If you’re interested in the new-car smell without the new-car price, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle. Certified pre-owned cars tout a manufacturer-backed warranty and modern technology at a discount compared to their original manufacturer’s suggested retail price. Not all certified pre-owned programs are identical though, so our latest video takes a look at Chrysler’s program to see how it stacks up.

In order to qualify for Chrysler’s certified pre-owned program, vehicles must meet several requirements. First, there’s a thorough check of the vehicle’s title and accident history to make sure there’s no unseen damage. The automaker also requires a car to be 5 years old or less, with fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer, before it can be certified. Next, Chrysler technicians carry out a 125-point inspection of the vehicle to ensure it’s mechanically sound.

As for warranty coverage, Chrysler’s CPO vehicles come with the brand’s 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is issued when the car is new. There’s also a 3-month or 3,000-mile bumper-to-bumper plan, which kicks in when the original 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty expires. Chrysler offers additional warranty coverage for an extra fee.

If you have an issue with a certified Chrysler, there’s a $100 deductible per visit, and you can take the car to any authorized Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or RAM dealer for repairs. The standard certified pre-owned warranty is also transferable for a $50 to $100 fee should you decide to sell your certified pre-owned Chrysler before the warranty has expired.

As for perks, Chrysler’s certified pre-owned program boasts a 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM radio, along with 24-hour roadside assistance and  a daily rental-car allowence for up to 5 days during covered repairs.

Although a certified pre-owned vehicle may cost a little more than other used cars, many drivers will find the added peace of mind to be worth the price. Find a Certified Chrysler for sale
