Chevy/GMC Offers One of the 10 Best Non-Luxury Certified Pre-Owned Programs for 2019
When you’re in the market for a used car, Certified Pre-Owned Programs offer greater peace of mind that your purchase decision is a smart one. Most CPO programs have strict rules and requirements for vehicles regarding mileage and repair history. They also typically offer some form of warranty protection, require a multi-point inspection on each vehicle, and may offer special financing.
These benefits mean CPO vehicles can cost more than non-CPO used cars, but the vetting process of a CPO program is often worth it if you’re looking for a reliable investment.
One CPO program worth checking out is from Chevy and GMC, which recently named one of the “10 Best Non-Luxury Certified Pre-Owned Programs for 2019” by Autotrader.

“These General Motors brands offer some solid CPO warranty protection,” explains Autotrader. “Whatever remains from the balance of the original 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty stays with the vehicle. Once it expires, a 1-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty kicks in. Likewise, the balance of the original 6-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty also stays with the CPO vehicle, and is fully transferable to the next owner.”
The Autotrader editors were also impressed by the two free scheduled-maintenance visits included in the CPO programs from Chevy/GMC, as well as the maintenance safety net of free roadside assistance while the brands’ powertrain warranties are valid.
“Other benefits include a free vehicle-history report, a free loaner car during qualifying repairs, and a 90-day free trial for satellite radio and OnStar,” reports Autotrader. “There is no deductible for qualified repairs.”
