What does it mean when a vehicle is GM Certified?

Working for a GM dealership, the benefits of the GM Certified Used Vehicle program is something that has become permanently chiseled in our minds. But for customers who don’t deal with this stuff everyday, GM vehicle certification may seem a somewhat foreign term. So I thought I’d take up a little space here to go over the ins and outs of what a GM Certified Used Vehicle actually is.To even be considered for the GM Certified program, a vehicle must be 2003 model year or newer, with fewer than 60,000 miles. These are vehicles that either meet GM’s rigid standards for quality or they won’t be certified.


GM Certified Used Vehicles (Buick, Chevrolet, GMC, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac) are available at Runde Auto Group, and all feature:

100,000-Mile/5-Year Powertrain Limited Warranty — Now, when you purchase a 2003 through 2008 model year GM Certified Used Vehicle, it comes with a transferable 100,000-Mile/5-Year Powertrain Limited Warranty (whichever comes first from original in-service date. Some 2003 models will not be eligible based on their in-service date) with no deductible. GM is stepping it up to a whole new level. Furthermore this $0 deductible warranty transferable to subsequent owners.

3-Month/3,000-Mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty Extension — A 3-Month or 3,000-Mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty Extension protects you beginning the minute you leave the lot. This is a bumper-to-bumper coverage that extends any remaining factory warranty.

117-Point Inspection
— All GM Certified Used Vehicles must undergo our rigorous 117-Point inspection process. Conducted by GM-trained technicians, each inspection is required to adhere to strict, factory-set standards to ensure that every vehicle’s engine, chassis and body is in excellent condition.

Around the clock and around the country, your GM Certified Used Vehicle comes with helping hands.If you are considering the purchase of a GM used vehicle from Runde’s, please ask your salesperson if the vehicle is a GM Certified Used Vehicle. Not all vehicles that meet the criteria mentioned above can or will necessarily be certified.
