2019 Dodge Journey

If you’re in the market for a new-to-you vehicle, you may be considering a pre-owned model. In addition to affordability, there are many other benefits to opting for a pre-owned vehicle as your next Idaho Falls car. As you browse our site, you’ll notice that we offer both used and certified pre-owned (CPO) models. What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned options? Read below to learn more and decide which is best for your current Blackfoot driving needs!


Used vs. CPO Vehicles

What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned vehicles? While all of the used Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram models here at Sayer Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram must meet our high-standard of quality and performance, CPO models must meet an even higher standard. The qualifications to achieve certified pre-owned status are as follows:

  • Pass a rigorous 125-point inspection exceeding our qualification standards, mechanical standards, maintenance standards, appearance standards, and detailing standards
  • Come with all ownership materials
  • Fall within recent model years
  • Must not exceed our maximum CPO mileage limits

CPO models are certainly more affordable than a brand new vehicle since they don’t suffer from initial drive-off-the-lot depreciation; traditional used vehicles are even more affordable. Used vehicles will be your least expensive option, and for a certified pre-owned model, the additional costs come the additional confidence you’ll have on Pocatello roads with:

  • 3-Month/3,000-Mile Maximum Care Warranty
  • Up to 7-Year/100,000 Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty
  • Lifetime Certified Upgrade Plans
  • Towing/Roadside Assistance like jump start, lockout, and gas delivery services
  • A full CARFAX® Vehicle History Report
