GM Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

Advantages Of Buying A Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

There are many reasons why you should consider buying a certified pre-owned vehicle from a franchised dealer. For starters, a franchised dealer offers competitive prices and will fully stand behind all their vehicles - even after you drive it off the lot. This may not be the case when you buy privately. Even though manufacturers have variations in certification, there are some common elements that most of them offer. You'll benefit from things like: a manufacturer's backed warranty, a careful inspection of the vehicle, an exchange privilege and roadside assistance. When you think about it, buying a certified used vehicle just makes sense.

Each Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle has been meticulously inspected by licensed mechanics before it reaches the sales floor. During the inspection process, each vehicle must pass a minimum of 150 points, ensuring that the vehicle is in excellent condition inside and out. Plus, regular maintenance is performed and faulty components are repaired or replaced.

When shopping for a used vehicle, it's important to understand who's providing the warranty coverage to the vehicle you're considering. All Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with warranty coverage backed by themanufacturer. A manufacturer's warranty ensures your vehicle will be serviced by qualified technicians who use factory-approved parts. This isn't always the case with third party aftermarket warranties sometimes offered in the used car industry.

All Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles feature a minimum of 3 months or 5,000 kilometres (whichever comes first) Used Vehicle Limited Warranty. And that's standard. If your budget permits, you can extend or upgrade to an even more comprehensive Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Protection Plan. You'll also appreciate the convenience of being able to transfer any existing warranties to a new owner, should you ever decide to sell your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle.

All Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles feature a minimum 3 months or 5,000 kilometres (whichever comes first) of 24-hour roadside assistance. That includes trip interruption coverage.

You're covered if:

Your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle is still within the manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty period, it's covered by GM Roadside Assistance.

Your manufacturer's warranty-covered non-GM vehicle does not offer a Roadside Assistance Program. General Motors will provide 3 months or 5,000 km, whichever comes first, of GM Roadside Assistance from the date of your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle purchase.

Your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle has less than 3 months and 5,000 km of remaining Manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty. General Motors will provide an additional 3 months or 5,000 km, whichever comes first, of GM Roadside Assistance once your remaining Manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires.

To receive Roadside Assistance, simply call 1 800 268 6800 and a service operator will be dispatched to the scene. If your vehicle can't be repaired onsite, it will be towed to the nearest GM Dealership or GM authorized repair facility. If you need to pull your vehicle out of mud or snow, you're covered for winching service, up to $100 peroccurrence.

Your satisfaction is important to us. If for any reason you're not completely satisfied with your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle, you may exchange it within the first 30 days or 2,500 kilometres, whichever comes first.

If there's something you think we've missed... please let us know and we'll make sure you get the information you want. The way we see it, buying a used vehicle shouldn't be any different than buying a new one.
