Plymouth Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Many drivers who are in the market for a used Plymouth vehicle want to consider a Certified Pre-Owned, or CPO, vehicle. CPO programs allow owners of used cars to drive with confidence, knowing that their vehicle has been inspected and repaired by professionals before ever hitting the lot. These cars usually come with an extended warranty and other benefits like roadside assistance.

Plymouth does not currently offer a Certified Pre-Owned car program because it is currently no longer in operation, and its models are too old to be covered by its parent company, Chrysler. Read on to learn more about Plymouth.

Company history

Plymouth was founded in 1928 by the Chrysler Corporation as its first “low priced” car, comparable to the Chevrolet and Ford offerings of the time. Plymouth was one of the top-selling brands throughout its history, particularly during the Great Depression era, where it surpassed even Ford’s marketability.

Throughout the 1960s, the Plymouth brand became known for “muscle” cars, such as the 1964 Barracuda, and the Road Runner. However, as time went on, Plymouth began making vehicles that were no longer readily identifiable; their brand began to overlap with others such as Dodge. Several attempts to remarket failed, and by the late 1990s, Plymouth only had four models still actively selling.

The year 2001 was Plymouth’s final year of production, with its iconic Prowler and Voyager models being adopted by the Chrysler brand. The last model produced under the Plymouth name was the Neon.

Used Plymouth value.

Buyers who still wish to own a Plymouth vehicle can purchase used Plymouths from dealers. At the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2001 Plymouth Neon is valued between $1,183 and $2,718 on Kelley Blue Book. While used cars haven’t been inspected like a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, or come with the extended warranty offered to CPO vehicles, this is still a valid option for those who wish to drive a Plymouth.

In any case, it's always wise to have an independent certified mechanic inspect any used car before buying it, as any used car can come with serious issues that aren't apparent to an untrained eye. If you're in the market to buy a used car, schedule a pre-purchase inspection for total peace of mind.
