If you’re in the market for a vehicle, look for the ProGuard Warranty Certified Pre-Owned sticker in the window. While certified are the cream of the crop of pre-owned vehicles, they are still machines that are made up of many components that get worn down and are costly to replace. For complete confidence in the quality of your vehicle, make sure it comes with a ProGuard Vehicle Protection Plan that covers any unexpected repair bills down the road.
The ProGuard Warranty Certification Process
Certification is written assurance that this vehicle has been thoroughly checked out. If it says ProGuard Certified, you know that it has gone through a rigorous inspection and met strict limits in terms of mileage and condition.
Eligible vehicles must go through an 87-point inspection of functionality and safety by mechanics that will perform any needed repairs or reconditioning to pass the certification process. You will be given this point-by-point checklist to review prior to purchase, providing actual confirmation that the vehicle has met every standard.
