Traditionally, the used car shopping experience was fraught with unreliable vehicles sold by untrustworthy salesmen. More often than not, customers felt pressured to purchase a used vehicle that was less than dependable at a price that exceeded their budget restrictions. But that moment in the motor vehicle realm has, it seems, finally passed. What remains is a used car buying landscape that is populated by solid vehicles in near-new condition, like certified Chevy cars.
What’s more, increasingly used cars are now what we call certified. Of course, you can’t just call a car certified and make it true. Rather, the vehicle must first meet certain requirements and then undergo an exhaustive inspection process by manufacturer-trained technicians.
If both the requirements and inspection are passed, the car will join the certified ranks and be sold with confidence-boosters like a complete vehicle history report, courtesy of CarFax, as well as a host of protections and assurances in the form of warranties. Actually, some of these warranties mirror those you would expect reserved for new vehicles only.
