What Is a Certified Pre-Owned Model?

Certified pre-owned, also known as CPO, isn't just a moniker used to throw around to move used models off a lot. It's a prestigious honor for a used vehicle to earn the right to be called “certified” because it means that it has undergone rigorous testing and has been put through diligent scrutiny to qualify for such a title. Standard used vehicles are available essentially "as is" for their listing price. Certified pre-owned vehicles, however, have to be within a certain range of model years, have lower than a set amount of miles, and pass a rigorous inspection. The specific parameters of what makes a vehicle able to qualify as a certified pre-owned model vary by manufacturer. Certified pre-owned models also come with the added benefit of warranties to give you extra peace of mind.

To separate itself from the rest of the used market, Chevrolet has its own certified pre-owned warranty program, which includes a number of standards that must be met for a used vehicle to be classified as a certified pre-owned vehicle. For anyone looking to buy used, you owe it to yourself to buy a vehicle that is guaranteed to perform beyond expectations, and you will definitely have that level of quality in a certified pre-owned vehicle thanks to the quality of standards that Chevrolet has set in place for all used vehicles classified as certified pre-owned.

Popular CPO Chevy Models

No matter which Certified Pre-Owned Chevy model you choose off our lot, you are getting the same great benefits. These are all newer used models that have undergone a thorough inspection and come with factory warranties that are valid at every Chevy dealership in America. However, there are some CPO models that are particularly popular and are high-value buys for almost any driver. To get your car shopping off to a good start, here are some potential purchases that you should consider when you start looking for a CPO Chevy. Of course, our helpful team is always here to answer any questions you might have and point you towards the perfect CPO car, truck, or SUV for your needs.

CPO Chevy SUVs

The modern SUV includes a diverse array of models ranging from subcompact vehicles designed to give the individual commuter a little more bad-weather performance all the way up to full-size models that can take the whole family on vacation in style. Which CPO Chevy SUV is right for you will depend on your personal requirements, but here are four stand-out options that cover the range of SUV models available at our dealership.

Chevy Equinox

This compact model is Chevy’s best-selling SUV and occupies a “just-right” position in the bowtie brand’s lineup. With seating for five and generous cargo space inside an efficient and manageable package, the Equinox can meet the needs of most drivers. Most of our CPO Equinox models come from the third generation, which debuted for 2018. The modern design is filled with up-to-date safety features and infotainment technology, making it well-suited for small families and individuals alike. If you often find yourself driving on backroads or in bad weather, make sure to find an Equinox with all-wheel drive for superior performance in all conditions.

Chevy Traverse

The Traverse is Chevy’s second most popular SUV model and occupies the next step up in size from the Equinox. Designed as affordable transportation for families large and small, this midsize SUV offers three rows of seating for up to eight passengers. But despite its roomy interior, the Traverse remains a relatively nimble and efficient vehicle that has no trouble navigating tight city streets. If you need more room than most SUVs offer without having to upgrade to a full-size model, the Traverse is a perfect choice. The current generation was released for 2018, making most CPO models extremely modern vehicles that are both safe and comfortable.

Chevy Tahoe

If your family needs even more space than the Traverse can offer, the full-size Tahoe was designed for you. Built with traditional body-on-frame construction and rear-wheel drive (true part-time 4x4 is optional), this is the best-selling model in its segment. While you still get the same three rows of seats as the Traverse, the Tahoe offers more interior space on top of its superior performance and more rugged design. It even comes standard with a V8 engine that gives you enough power to haul up to 8,600 pounds when properly equipped. Who needs a pickup for towing when you have a Tahoe in your driveway?

On the other end of the spectrum, the Chevy Trax is the smallest SUV sold by the bowtie brand. If you are a commuter that needs an affordable vehicle with solid fuel economy but are tired of driving a low to the ground sedan, a CPO Chevy Trax should be at the top of your list of alternatives. The small turbocharged engine provides decent performance while still being rated at up to an estimated 32 miles per gallon combined, depending on the exact model year in question. While the Trax may be small, it still brings all the benefits of driving an SUV. You get a commanding view of the road, a large rear hatch for cargo, and even the option of all-wheel drive for inclimate weather.

Chevy Cars

SUVs may be gaining popularity with every passing year, but the sedan remains a mainstay for drivers looking for affordability and efficiency. If you need a commuter vehicle, a car for your kid, or just something to run errands in, a CPO Chevy sedan is an incredible choice. However, Chevy’s lineup of impressive cars is far from limited to just safe and reliable sedans. While you may not find many Corvettes in our CPO inventory, you can find the powerful Camaro and even the all-electric Bolt EV.

Chevy Malibu

A mainstay of the Chevy lineup since its introduction in 1964, the Malibu remains an amazing midsize sedan. This popular model strikes a perfect balance between efficiency, comfort, safety, and performance, making it a top choice for car lovers everywhere. The current generation debuted for 2016, meaning every CPO Malibu you find on our lot has the latest design and loads of modern features. There is even a Malibu Hybrid that is rated for 46 miles per gallon combined, giving you incredible efficiency on your travels - not that the standard turbocharged gasoline engine is bad, at 36 miles per gallon on the highway.

Chevy Bolt EV

If you are looking for the most efficient commuter vehicle on our lot, then you can’t go wrong with the Bolt EV. Not to be confused with the Chevy Volt hybrid, the Bolt EV is a full battery-electric vehicle that requires zero gasoline and produces zero emissions. Simply plug in your car when you get home at the end of the day, and you will have up to 259 miles of range when you wake up in the morning. Further, the Bolt EV is not just efficient - it is surprisingly powerful and practical to boot. With 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of instant electric torque standard, this model can launch itself from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.7 seconds. Add in the spacious rear liftgate and modern infotainment system, and a CPO Bolt EV makes for a high-value option for any Atlanta driver.

Chevy Trucks

If there is one thing Chevy is known for, it is building powerful and reliable pickup trucks. Whether you need a no-frills work truck to haul supplies to the job site, a powerful tow vehicle for your boat or camper, or a rugged off-road machine to challenge the trails, a CPO Chevy truck will get the job done with style. With options for midsize, half-ton, and heavy-duty models, we have a high-value pickup that is perfect for your needs, no matter what they are. If you are new to the world of trucks, our knowledgeable team can help you find the right model to give you the capabilities you require.

Chevy Silverado 1500

While Chevy offers a full line of pickup trucks, large and small, there is one model that stands out from the rest. The half-ton Silverado 1500 is Chevy’s top-selling pickup for good reason - it can handle just about anything. Available in a large variety of different body styles with an impressive selection of different engines, there is a CPO Silverado out there that will check off every item on your pickup wishlist. From crew cabs to long beds and from V8 engines to turbo-diesels, it is easy to get lost with just how many options you have with Chevy’s most popular truck.

Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned Process and Inspection

Before you buy a certified pre-owned vehicle, Chevrolet ensures that every single one of those vehicles classified as “certified” has gone through a rigorous inspection and checklist process so that only the vehicles that have passed the inspection and reconditioning process earn the classification of being certified pre-owned. Every Chevrolet that manages to receive the label has been put through an uncompromising 172-point inspection and a thorough reconditioning process. What this means is that any vehicle that does not muster the quality to pass the inspection, or can't be repaired easily to reach that quality, cannot be labeled as certified pre-owned.

The inspection and reconditioning are matched with a limited number of years of use, so all certified pre-owned vehicles have less than 6 years of wear on them and have no more than 75,000 miles logged. Certified pre-owned vehicles also have to go through any mandatory repairs and fixes related to recalls. So buying certified pre-owned means you never have to worry about getting a vehicle that suffers from an incomplete safety recall. Furthermore, each of these vehicles must pass through a vehicle history report and must have a clean title. This lets potential owners know exactly what kind of vehicle they're getting, what kind of condition it's in, and the history of the vehicle.

Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned Warranties

Promising someone assurance about quality doesn't always work well with potential car shoppers. Telling someone that a product is quality-made is different from the shopper knowing that it's quality-made. That's why Chevrolet has warranties for all certified pre-owned vehicles. This way, you always know that you're purchasing a vehicle with confidence thanks to the 6-year or 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, as well as a 12-month or 12,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty with a $0 deductible, so you're not financially committed to any additional costs for the warranties.

What's more is that every Chevrolet certified pre-owned vehicle is automatically included in the Scheduled Maintenance Program, with two free service maintenance visits. This includes a courtesy checkup and a multi-point inspection to ensure that the vehicle is continuing to operate as it should, along with oil and filter changes and tire rotations. You can make use of these maintenance visits within 2-years of ownership or 24,000 miles traveled on a certified pre-owned vehicle.

When you want quality and guaranteed performance from a used vehicle, then you want a Chevy that's certified pre-owned. Not only do these vehicles come with warranties that benefit you, thorough inspections to ensure top-of-the-line performance, and a vehicle history report, so you're not blindsided with any unforeseen problems. All certified pre-owned vehicles from Chevrolet come with up to 3 free months of the OnStar Safety & Security Plan along with the Chevrolet Connected Services, so you're always just a button-press away from roadside assistance or emergency services.

What's more, is that all eligible certified pre-owned vehicles come with a 3-month SiriusXM Satellite Radio trial subscription, so you can enjoy all the latest media when it comes to a diverse and eclectic mix of music, radio stations, podcasts, talk radio, and more. If you aren't satisfied with your purchase for any reason, you can always trade it in within 3-days or before putting 150 miles on the vehicle. This way, you can find the automobile that best suits what you want to drive.
