It is always a smart idea to consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle when buying a used car, truck, minivan or SUV. In fact, you can choose from all four of these vehicle categories if you’re considering putting a used and well-maintained Stellantis vehicle in your garage or driveway. Stellantis includes Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands. Here’s a look at some of the highlights of the automaker’s CPO program.
Requirements for Stellaantis Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles
For starters, any potential Stellantis CPO vehicle must not be older than 5 model years and have no more than 75,000 miles on the odometer.
Every Stellantis CPO vehicle is covered by a minimum 3 month or 3,000 mile extended warranty. If any of the original new vehicle warranties still apply, the clock on the CPO warranty will not start ticking until that original coverage has expired. This CPO warranty covers most of the same things as the new vehicle warranty, although there is a deductible to be paid for each repair visit.
A 7-year / 100,000-mile warranty on the powertrain — from the car’s original date of sale — is also part of the deal. The powertrain warranty can also be upgraded to one of three plans: Powertrain Care, Added Care, and Maximum Care.
125 point vehicle inspection
Like any CPO program, Stellantis’ program includes a thorough inspection of the vehicle. The car must meet a 125-point quality checklist, performed by a certified mechanic. Some of the finer points of this inspection are making sure the front and rear brakes have at least 50% of their pad lining and making sure belts and hoses are in good condition. If repairs are required, all work is done with factory approved parts.
Stellaantis offers round-the-clock roadside assistance if a CPO customer gets stuck on the road with a flat tire or dead battery. This program is called ‘Sign and Go’ and covers up to $100 per event.
Vehicle History Report
Every Stellantis CPO vehicle must have a clean Carfax report to determine if the vehicle has lived an event free life.
Travel interruption compensation
If you run into any issues along the way, other additional benefits include a rental car allowance of $35 per day for up to 5 days. This can be applied to a taxi ride, rather than a rental car.
