Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Certified Vehicle?

Smart consumers have realized that the purchase of a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle provides an attractive alternative to buying a high priced new one. For less money, a buyer can afford “more car” – and one that looks and feels brand new.

More importantly, the certification process removes the uncertainty about the mechanical condition of the vehicle. When you buy a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle, it has already been thoroughly inspected by a skilled mechanic.

Every Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle* receives a 70 Point Inspection of all of the vehicles major components. Such as, the engine, transmission, air conditioning, and electrical system. If any problems are found, they are repaired and brought into as close to “NEW” condition as possible prior to their being offered for sale.


Not all vehicles offered for sale are Certified Pre-Owned
