Buying a Certified Pre-Owned from Chevrolet ensures you're getting a vehicle backed by the manufacturer -- and that's something you can't get anywhere else. Certified pre-owned Chevrolet vehicles under go a rigorous process to guarantee they are in like-new condition before they roll off the lot. The most important aspect of the pre-sale process is the 172-point inspection undergone by every Chevrolet that meets the basic requirements for manufacturer certification. 

Only vehicles that are less than five years old and have less than 75,000 miles can be considered for certification, but the process is stringent and not every car will make the cut! This is why drivers of certified pre-owned Chevrolets are so confident in the car they are driving. Chevrolet is a historic car brand with a reputation that goes back more than a century -- not just any pre-owned vehicle can be sold without being the best it can be.

The strict qualification process is one factor, but the added suite of benefits included with certified vehicles makes buying a certified pre-owned vehicle hard to resist. When you buy a used car from a third-party dealership, you're on your own after you drive the vehicle off the lot. When you buy certified used from Hanlees Davis Chevy, you're driving off the lot with the peace of mind that we've got your back in the event something goes wrong.
