Ram Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Drivers in the market for a used Ram vehicle may want to check out cars under their certified pre-owned program. Many manufacturers have a certified pre-owned (CPO) program, and each one is set up differently. Read on to learn about the specifics of the Ram CPO program.

Ram Certified Pre-Owned cars are always under five years old, have less than 65,000 miles, and come complete with a seven-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty.

Inspection

In order to ensure that all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are safe to drive, Ram subjects all CPO vehicles to a 125-point inspection that includes the following procedures and areas:

  • Under-hood checks
  • Operational checks
  • Road Test
  • Steering Performance
  • Equipment Operation
  • Powertrain performance
  • Braking performance
  • Scheduled maintenance
  • Exterior and interior condition and detailing

Warranty

Ram CPO vehicles come with a limited warranty, which covers repairs or replacements of major powertrain components (which includes the engine, transmission, and driveline) for seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The warranty also includes certain benefits including:

  • A complete CARFAX vehicle history report including the service record.

  • A 24-hour roadside assistance program that offers emergency services and security services including: flat tire service, gas delivery up to two gallons, battery jump assistance, lockout service, and towing service. For details on specific reimbursement or allowance amounts, see an authorized Ram CPO dealer.

  • Reimbursement for rental services in the event that your vehicle requires warranty repairs, up to $35 per day (with a maximum total of $175 per instance).

  • A three-month trial subscription to Sirius XM All Access satellite radio.

Pricing

Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Ram vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a minimal difference in the price at most dealerships. The bottom line will usually be around 11% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.

For example, at the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2012 Ram 1500 has a Kelley Blue Book value of $14,724 the same vehicle in the Ram CPO program is priced around $16,340.

Compare Ram to other Certified Pre-Owned car programs.

Whether you decide to go with a CPO car, it's always wise to have an independent certified mechanic inspect any used car before buying it. Certified Pre-Owned does not mean the car is in perfect condition, and 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.

Geo Prizm L4-1.8L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Hillsborough, North Carolina
FINALLY! I've met a car mechanic who not only knows how to repair cars, but is HONEST, KIND, CONSIDERATE and LOOKS OUT FOR THE CUSTOMER. It turned out my car had way more problems than I thought (it was donated to me, not running). Issac could have promised to fix it and could have racked up a huge bill replacing innumerable parts. Instead he told me he suspected getting the car into running condition might cost me over $3,500, given the age of the car and serious problems already visible. He painted an honest picture of this 25 year old car and let me decide what to do. Bottom line: I would hire this man in a minute if I needed work on my car. He's a rare bird these days!

Isaac was great! He called to verify the appointment and was even able to fit me in earlier. He arrived early and was very friendly and provided a great thorough inspection. Would definitely recommend him.

Diana went above and beyond for my pre-purchase inspection. She obviously knows her stuff, and she was very upfront and honest about everything. Easily the least aggravating car-related experience I've ever had.

Thorough evaluation of a car I was considering purchasing pointed out a number of invisible and costly issues. Thankful to have this information as part of my decision making.

His expertise just saved me $6000 on a car that would not pass inspection let alone be able to drive off the lot
