Looking to buy your next vehicle in the Memphis area? If you don’t want to spend that new car sticker price but want something close to new in terms of condition, look towards our Certified Pre-Owned inventory. At Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we put our CPO vehicles through an extensive process to make sure they are the best of their lot. Apart from being no more than 5 years old with no more than 70,000 miles on them, these vehicles also come with excellent warranty coverage and go through a thorough inspection process. Let’s take a closer look at this process, courtesy of Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, your Southhaven, MS area Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram dealership!

Any and all parts replaced during this inspection will always be certified and genuine Mopar® parts. We ensure quality in all our vehicles, no matter what.

Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Coverage

Making sure our customers are well-covered when they leave our Collierville Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram dealership is extremely important to us. With our Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, you’ll have excellent warranty coverage that includes:

  • 7-Year/100,000-Mile CPOV Powertrain Limited Warranty: This warranty runs for 7-years from the date the vehicle was sold as new or at the 100,000 mile mark, whichever occurs first
  • 3-Month/3,000-Mile Maximum Care Coverage: Runs from the date the vehicle is sold as a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, or when the remaining 3/36 Basic New Vehicle Warranty expires, whichever is more beneficial. This covers most vehicle components (over 5,000) and has a deductible applied per covered visit

Each CPO vehicle also comes with a CARFAX™ Vehicle History Report which ensures the vehicle is without prior title obligations. You’ll also have the CARFAX™ Buyback Guarantee™, which prevents you from purchasing a vehicle with DMV-reported incidents. This is transferable and lasts one year.
