What’s the difference between used and CPO?

Searching for the best of the best? Our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) inventory will not disappoint. These models stand out from the rest simply because they are held to a much higher standard. From rigorous 125-point inspections to age and mileage limitations, our CPO vehicles must follow strict requirements in order to get this coveted crown of honor. Plus, these models undergo a thorough reconditioning process using authentic Mopar® parts. When you purchase one of these top-tier used models, you’ll get to enjoy a 7-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and 3-month/3,000-mile Maximum Care Coverage, whichever comes first. The perks don’t stop there — rest easy with 24-hour towing and Roadside Assistance and pump up the jams with an additional three-month subscription to SiriusXM®.

What is good mileage on a used car?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a straightforward answer for this question. However, thanks to innovative powertrain technology, many modern vehicles can last for a very long time. In fact, they generally last up until around 200,000 miles — maybe even 300,000 miles if you’re lucky! Of course, this largely depends on the particular make and model of the car, so conduct research into the used car you’re eyeing to determine its estimated longevity.

How do I know that I’m getting a good deal?

Don’t ever worry if you’re getting a good deal when you shop at Griffin Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Valdosta. Regardless, we highly recommend conducting your own research by using reputable third-party resources such as Kelley Blue Book® or Edmunds. These websites can produce reliable price estimates of the car that’s on your wishlist. However, the value can change monthly due to the fluctuating market, so make sure you stay up-to-date as much as possible. Don’t forget to use our online trade appraisal tool if you’re interested in saving more on your next purchase by swapping out your current ride for one from our used inventory.

Why should I buy from a dealership?

There are numerous benefits to shopping at a reputable dealership like ours. No matter if you decide to purchase or lease your used vehicle, we can ensure a smooth and secure transaction. We’re also dedicated to being fully transparent about the condition of our like-new models and provide full disclosure on our pricing. If you have any concerns, we’re always open and honest with our answers. Plus, if you want to save even more on your affordable upgrade, you can check out our used car specials or take advantage of our special financing opportunities. Need routine maintenance? We’ve got your back for that, too. If you buy from a private party, they can’t promise these same perks that come easy when you walk through our doors.
