Check Out a Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet at Handy Chevrolet in St. Albans

Are you looking for a used Chevrolet model? You might consider going for a certified pre-owned Chevrolet. Buying a certified pre-owned model means you have confidence in whatever you buy. The ordinary used vehicle does not go through the many tests that a CPO goes through, and neither does it come with a warranty.

Why Go for a Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet Model?

The Chevrolet CPO program offers several benefits to drivers. You are sure that the Chevrolet model is less than six years old and has driven less than 75,000 miles. The models also have a clean title.

One of the main advantages of a CPO is that you get a 6-year/100,000-mile extended Powertrain Limited Warranty. You will have more coverage with benefits, such as Courtesy Transportation and Roadside Assistance, while the warranty lasts. You can visit Handy Chevrolet anytime you have an issue. Eligible vehicles will also enjoy one-month Premium Plan Coverage with Connected Vehicle Plan and the OnStar Safety & Security Plan.

Other benefits include free service loaner vehicles, special finance terms, easy transferability, complimentary service after two years, and a 3-month satellite radio subscription. When you buy a CPO Chevrolet, you are sure that all the systems are working as they would in a new vehicle. If anything is broken, it is replaced before the vehicle goes into the market.

The Chevrolet CPO Program: How are Vehicles Certified?

Chevrolet requires that all CPO models go through the 172-point inspection process. The first step is to investigate the history of the vehicle. Here, they check the vehicle warranty, the availability of the owner's manual, recalls, trouble codes, aftermarket modifications, and the vehicle history report. If the vehicle does not pass this stage, it does not proceed with the inspection process.

After vehicle history, the next step is maintenance. They check that all the needed maintenance is carried out on the vehicle, noting the details of the various tasks, such as battery status and any required items.

The tires and the brake pads are checked next. According to Chevrolet, all tires should meet the minimum tire tread depth, and the tires have to be matching in size and brand. Next, the vehicle is detailed. The vehicle goes thorough cleaning to ensure the customer loves the overall look. The process involves cleaning the interior and exterior, waxing the mode, checking for dents, removing road tar, and reconditioning surface chips.

Once the car is detailed, it is taken on a road test. During the road test, the technician will check the condition of the engine and the transmission, the stability of the vehicle, the steering responsiveness, the effectiveness of the air conditioning system, and any other items, such as wipers and speedometer that they may observe as they drive.

It is the duty of the technician to check all the vehicle systems, such as airbags, brakes, and others, to ensure they are in good working condition. From there, they check:

  • The engine compartment for the ignition system, fuel system, and cooling system, among others
  • Under vehicle for brakes, suspension system, drivetrain, and others
  • Interior of the model for lighting, seating, trim and controls, steering wheel, infotainment system, and others
  • Exterior for lights, body panels, and wheels, among others

In the case of a hybrid vehicle, the battery motor and other hybrid systems are inspected. The technician will have a checklist of all the items they need to check, a total of 172 items before the vehicle gets CPO status anywhere around Burlington.
