?The numbers speak for themselves, CPOV has a positive impact on dealership traffic and customer loyalty,? said Peter Grady, Director - Remarketing. ?Our CPOV brand draws shoppers into our dealer showrooms, and once they are part of the Chrysler LLC family of vehicles, it is our intent that they consider a Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge product when shopping for their next vehicle.?

Chrysler offers one of the most comprehensive Certified Pre-owned Vehicle programs in the industry. For a vehicle to be certified under Chrysler's used-vehicle program, it must be a 2002 through 2007 model pre-owned vehicle with less than 65,000 miles and pass a stringent 125-point mechanical, safety and condition standard inspection. Chrysler CPO vehicles are backed by an eight-year/80,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, 24-hour, 365-day full roadside assistance with a $35 per day rental car allowance and a three-month or 3,000-mile Maximum Care warranty, in addition to a Carfax Vehicle History Report and buyback guarantee.

Marketed as ?Brand Spankin? Used®? Chrysler CPO vehicles are sold only through Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealerships that have earned the automaker's Five Star certification. Five Star certification is a comprehensive validation of the dealership's facilities, operational processes, salesperson and technician training accreditation as well as customer satisfaction survey ratings. Approximately 2,000 Chrysler dealerships in the United States are certified Five Star dealers.
