If you're interested in buying a used car but are worried about maintenance and repair costs, a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle might be right for you. Certified pre-owned vehicles are nearly new models that offer a sharp discount compared to a brand-new car -- and a manufacturer-backed warranty to boot. But not all certified pre-owned programs are the same, so today we're taking a look at the ins and outs of Dodge's program.

Before a Dodge can be certified, it 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. Dodge also requires a car be 5 years old or less and have fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer before it can be certified. Finally, specially trained technicians carry out a rigorous 125-point inspection on the car to ensure there aren't any hidden issues or problems.

As for warranty coverage, Dodge CPO vehicles come with a 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty -- an increase of 2 years over the original factory powertrain warranty. Dodge certified pre-owned vehicles also include a 3-month or 3,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which kicks in when the initial 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty expires. Additionally, drivers can purchase further warranty coverage at an extra cost.

Should you have an issue with a certified pre-owned Dodge, there's a $100 deductible per repair visit -- and you can take your car to any Dodge dealer for repairs. Should you sell your certified Dodge before the warranty ends, coverage is transferable one time only for a small fee.

As for perks, Dodge's certified pre-owned plan offers a few, including a 3-month trial subscription to SiriusXM radio and 24-hour roadside assistance. You'll also receive trip-interruption coverage if you break down more than 100 miles from home.

While certified pre-owned vehicles often cost more than their standard used-car counterparts, many shoppers are willing to pay the premium for manufacturer-backed coverage.
