Certified Pre-Owned

Used and pre-owned vehicles are a great choice for a lot of people. By choosing a used car, you can save some money, avoid the infamous initial depreciation of a new vehicle, and even help out the environment by keeping a vehicle on the road longer and offsetting its resource costs. For a lot of people, their biggest concern with a used model is the uncertainty of not knowing what it had been through before. By choosing a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle, however, you can save money and still get real peace of mind.

Some people think that the term “Certified Pre-Owned” is simply a marketing gimmick or a fancy way of saying “used,” but in reality, it has a distinct meaning. A CPO vehicle has been bought back by the manufacturer and inspected to ensure it is in the best shape possible. You cannot find Certified Pre-Owned models when buying from a private seller or some random person online – they are only available at dealerships just like new models.

All of the CPO vehicles that we sell here at Orange Coast CJDRF are in the very best condition possible and backed up by Chrysler’s impressive warranty and vehicle coverage. If you want to save some money, but you are concerned about the uncertainty of a used car, then a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle could be the perfect choice for you. Whether you are interested in a powerful Dodge muscle car for cruising along the Pacific Coast Highway, or you want a rugged Jeep to tackle some local off-road trails, we are here to help. Come visit us at Orange Coast CJDRF today and we will help you find the perfect vehicle.

The Certified Pre-Owned Difference: 125-Point Inspection

One of the biggest reasons to choose a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle over any other used model is the rigorous inspection it must pass before it can be certified. This can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but for Chrysler vehicles, including Dodge cars, Jeeps, and Ram trucks, it involves a full 125-point inspection. In order for any vehicle to be certified by Chrysler, it cannot be more than five years old, cannot have more than 75,000 miles on it, must not have any damage to the frame, and has to have a clean title.

Beyond these initial requirements, a thorough inspection is performed by a certified Chrysler technician that knows these vehicles inside and out. Certified Pre-Owned vehicles from Chrysler have to have fully functional electrical systems, including heating and air conditioning, turn signals and other lamps, and the dashboard lights and indicators. Both the interior and exterior are checked over and inspected to ensure they are in excellent condition and must meet high appearance standards.

The inspection includes checking the tires and making sure they have adequate depth and are in good condition, along with all of the fluids in the vehicle. It must be able to start easily and switch gears smoothly as it did when first manufactured. Even minor details are included: the interior is vacuumed and cleaned and must be free of any odors – you will not find a CPO vehicle that smells like an ashtray.

The Certified Pre-Owned Difference: Chrysler Warranties

Although the rigorous inspection that every Certified Pre-Owned vehicle goes through is part of the peace of mind you get when you choose a CPO model, the real reassurance comes from the pair of warranties that Chrysler offers on them. These warranties are included on all CPO vehicles, whether you are looking for a Jeep, a Dodge, or even a Ram pickup. Additional certified warranty plans are available if you are interested, but these two are provided standard.

The first warranty on all Certified Pre-Owned vehicles from Chrysler is a 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. This warranty covers repairs or replacements for just about every powertrain component in the vehicle. It begins from when the vehicle was originally sold as new, so it is particularly valuable with vehicles that are only a few years old.

The second warranty on all Certified Pre-Owned Chrysler vehicles is a 3-month or 3,000-mile maximum care warranty that covers most components on the entire vehicle. More than 5,000 components are covered by this warranty, so you know that if anything goes wrong after buying your car, you are covered. This warranty starts when you purchase a CPO vehicle, so it is a great value even on older models.

The Certified Pre-Owned Difference: Roadside Assistance

Every Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from Chrysler also comes with free Roadside Assistance that extends your peace of mind beyond simply confidence in your car, and ensures you know that you will be taken care of no matter what happens. For example, the Roadside Assistance includes help with flat-tire service, gas delivery if you run out, and battery jump assistance. Lockout service and towing, if your vehicle is inoperative, are also provided.

There is even a car rental allowance, up to $35 per day, to help you out if you find your vehicle needs repairs or is inoperative due to covered components. All of this, plus you get a free CARFAX vehicle history report on any Certified Pre-Owned vehicle offered by Chrysler. So you not only have a sense of what a vehicle has been through, you know it is in the best condition possible, and that Chrysler has you covered with warranty protection and roadside assistance.

The Perfect Option for any California Lifestyle

One of the reasons we love selling Chrysler vehicles here at Orange Coast CJDRF is that their lineup has so much more to offer than other manufacturers; this really lets us help every customer find just what they need. For example, if you are interested in a powerful muscle car for cruising along the PCH or hitting up the track on the weekend, then a Dodge Challenger or Charger could be perfect for you. There are lots of different trims and engines available in these Dodge muscle cars, so you can find something with all the power you want.

On the other hand, if you need a truck for construction work in the Costa Mesa, Anaheim, or Greater Los Angeles area, then Ram has you covered. The lineup of full-size pickups from Ram covers just about every level of power and performance you could need. No matter how much you need to tow or load up to get your work done, a Ram truck will keep going as long as you need it to.

And of course, California is an amazing place to live if you have a passion for the outdoors, especially if you like to hit the trail and go off-road. Nothing beats a Jeep for exploring the trails in the area, whether you like to let loose up in Santa Clarita (we hear Rowher Flat has some great hills) or you prefer to stay a little closer to home and head to Wildomar over in Murrieta. Then again, you could head north to Lake Tahoe and take a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon to the very trail it is named after – just be sure you are up for the challenge.
