What does Certified Pre-Owned Buick Mean?

Choosing a Certified Pre-Owned Buick means choosing confidence. From a new, longer 6-Year/100,000-Mile6 Powertrain Limited Warranty to our exclusive CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program3 with two included maintenance visits, every Buick CPO vehicle is backed by one of the most comprehensive used-vehicle benefits packages in the industry.

IMPORTANT RECALL INFORMATION: Before a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is listed or sold, GM requires dealers to complete all safety recalls. However, because even the best processes can break down, we encourage you to check the recall status of any vehicle at recalls.gm.com.

THE BUICK CERTIFIED ADVANTAGE

When it comes to deciding where to buy a used vehicle, you have lots of options—from a private seller, to an independent dealer, and more. When you choose a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from Buick, you get a vehicle you can have confidence in. That’s because we back it with one of the most comprehensive used-vehicle benefits packages in the industry. Simply put, it’s what separates Buick CPO vehicles from ordinary used vehicles. Now, this benefits package is even better. We’ve extended the Powertrain Limited Warranty to 6 years or 100,000 miles.6 That’s on top of the already impressive 12-Month/12,000-Mile7 Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty. Plus, every vehicle comes with our exclusive CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program3 that includes two visits—and much more. Altogether, you enjoy more than $2,8004 of Built-in Value—that’s a greater value than ever before.

PUTTING YOU FIRST

The name “Certified” has always meant meeting our strict standards, but it also means Owner Care that covers a comprehensive range of benefits worth more than $2,8004—that’s a greater value than ever before. It’s what separates our Buick CPO vehicles from ordinary used vehicles.

NOTHING IS LEFT TO CHANCE

All Pre-Owned vehicles must go through a strict evaluation to earn the Certified title and meet the following requirements:

  • Are within current plus-5 model years
  • Are within a maximum of 75,000 vehicle miles
  • Have a clean title and pass a Vehicle History Report (free CARFAX®)

On top of that, all of our used vehicles go through a thorough inspection and reconditioning process that examines everything from the engine block to the shocks. If it fails a single point, we completely recondition it—or it won’t be Certified.

MORE THAN $2,800 OF BUILT-IN VALUE

From our exclusive CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program with two included maintenance vists,3 a new, longer Powertrain Warranty with $0 deductible, and other benefits that come standard with every Certified Pre-Owned Buick vehicle, you enjoy more than $2,8004 of Built-in value—a greater value than ever before.

WARRANTIES

Buick CPO vehicles come with two factory-backed auto limited warranties that combine to provide fantastic coverage: a new, longer 6-Year/100,000-Mile6 Powertrain Limited Warranty along with a 12-Month/12,000-Mile7 Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty, both with $0 deductible.

EXCLUSIVE CPO MAINTENANCE

Every Certified Pre-Owned Buick vehicle comes with the exclusive CPO Scheduled Maintenance Program3 with two included maintenance visits.

VEHICLE EXCHANGE PROGRAM

If you’re not satisfied with your purchase, simply bring it back to your dealer within the first 3 days or 150 miles9 (whichever comes first) to exchange it for a Chevy, Buick, or GMC that fits your needs.

FREE VEHICLE HISTORY REPORT

We’re proud of—and have confidence in—every vehicle we sell. That’s why Buick Certified Pre-Owned vehicles listed on gmcertified.com come with a free CARFAX Vehicle History Report so you’re made aware of the vehicle’s maintenance history as well as any past problems such as major accidents, fires, or title issues.
