GMC Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles: Frequently Asked Questions

Certified Pre-Owned Cars For Sale

A new vehicle has never been purchased or habitually driven by any other driver. New vehicles generally only reflect the miles accumulated from transportation to the dealership or from other potential owners’ test drives. These vehicles have no accident history or other damage.

In contrast, a GMC Certified Pre-Owned vehicle has had a prior owner. It will have some mileage – many have just come off lease – but it will also have been inspected, cleaned, and reconditioned by the dealership prior to certification.

Isn’t This Technically a Used Vehicle?

Yes, but it’s also much more than that. GMC Certified Pre-Owned vehicles have a few important distinctions. A used vehicle from our GMC dealership in Lansing, MI does not come with an additional warranty. Used cars may also have an unknown vehicle history in regard to its former owners and accident reports.

How Can I Be Sure of GMC Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles’ Condition?

In addition to a limited warranty from LaFontaine Buick GMC Lansing, our Certified Pre-Owned vehicles also come with a multi-point vehicle inspection, backed by a comprehensive inspection report. This inspection provides peace of mind for drivers that we stand behind this special category of vehicles.

Why Are These Vehicles More Expensive?

To begin with, they are newer, and have fewer miles. Just as importantly, their technology – including desirable features like their infotainment systems and driver assist aids – are more advanced than what you’re likely to find in a typical used car.

What Perks Come with a GMC Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

There are many benefits to choosing a GMC Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.

  • An attractive sticker price
  • A low total cost of ownership
  • A lower cost for GMC financing
  • A 12-month/12,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty, and a six-year / 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty
  • Even a scheduled maintenance program

Are There Other Ways to Protect my Purchase?

As with any vehicle we sell, you can purchase extended protection that enhances your insurance coverage, GMC service plans, and much more. Your GMC dealer will discuss the details, plus any applicable program terms and conditions.
