Does anyone have any info on how detailed/extensive the inspections are? Would I be safe buying a car sight unseen, that has passed the certified inspection?
Right, I'm not saying CPO is a bad thing, but it certainly does not guarantee that the car is in great condition just because it's a CPO. I do like CPO myself as I am usually able to get them for the same price as a non-CPO and have extra warranty. My previous two cars were CPO, and I would prefer to get CPO now if I can find a clean one for a reasonable price. That being said I have seen MANY CPO cars that had no business being such. By the way, the lady with the welded-tegether car was SOL because GM blamed it on the dealer.Right but with the warranty, you have some recourse, without it its just "as is".
I had to fight with the dealership and call Pontiac, after a month I finally got a second key. Which they tried to charge me $100 for a second key with a fob.Ask to see the check list. All Certified cars should have one. Go over the list with your salesman. People do make mistakes and sometimes a tech is just a lazy ass so always drive and look at a car before buying.
Rule of thumb is a certified used car SHOULD ALWAYS come with an owner's manual and 2 sets of keys and remotes if they apply.
