GM Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles
Choosing to buy a pre-owned vehicle versus taking home a new one has several advantages. First, the price of a pre-owned vehicle is going to lower on a model-by-model basis. Paying off a used car loan can be a great way to rebuild credit. Finally, if you put some accidental dings or dents in a pre-owned vehicle, you are less likely to have to worry much about it. However, there is a separate class of pre-owned vehicle available at Don Wheaton, called GM Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, that is a cut above the rest of the inventory of used cars for sale in Edmonton, AB.
Not every pre-owned vehicle will become a GM Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle. In order to obtain that designation, a vehicle must be no more than eight model-years older than the current model-year. As of right now, that would place the oldest vehicle that could certified as a 2007 model or newer. Additionally, the vehicle must have a limited number of kilometers recorded on the odometer. Only when a vehicle has met the first two criteria will they go to the next step. To complete the process of becoming a GM Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle, it must go through a very extensive inspection process. During the inspection that covers just about every nut, bolt and component of a vehicle, the technician performing said inspection will cover more than 150 points.
Assuming there are no major faults with the engine, transmission or brakes, or anything that can’t be easily fixed, the vehicle enters the GM Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle inventory. There are a huge number of benefits that come with choosing one of the best secondary market vehicles in Canada. Each certified vehicle from GM comes with a three-month/5,000-kilometer used vehicle limited warranty and a 24-hour roadside assistance package. If you are so inclined there is also an additional vehicle protection plan that can be purchased in conjunction with the available warranties. This is aimed at providing a little extra piece of mind.
