Advantages of Certified Preowned

Buying a vehicle is the second largest purchase in most peoples' lives, next to buying a house, and in this post we break down many of the advantages of buying a used vehicle from a reputable dealer, and coincidentally some of the disadvantages private selling poses.

In local newspapers, automotive magazines, and private postings there are literally thousands of vehicles for sale. However, when buying a vehicle privately, the vehicle is purchased "as is". The vehicle may have a Safety Standard Certificate, but this is neither a warranty nor a guarantee that the vehicle will last for any specific period of time. Also, "private sales" might not be quite what they seem. Consumers must beware of whom they buy from.

When you purchase a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicel from us you get many advantages:

  • We ensure you get the 13% trade-in tax savings.
  • We have access to financing programs, and can offer trade-in options which can make your used car purchase more affordable.
  • We can offer warranties and after-sale service for used vehicles.
  • We guarantee that the vehicles they sell aren't stolen and don't have any liens against them. They must also supply you with all known material facts about the vehicle, such as previous accidents, [ex, CarProof or CarFax report]
  • When we buys a car to resell, we have it thoroughly inspected and refurbished ? both mechanically and cosmetically. That usually accounts for most of any difference in cost between buying privately and from a dealer. Through Jim Thompson Chrysler all our vehicles go through a certified 125 point inspection to be approved for sale under our Certified Pre-Owned program.
