If you are in the market for a used Hummer vehicle, you 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 Hummer CPO program.
Hummer Certified Pre-Owned cars are covered by the GM Motors CPO Program, which still owns the now-defunct brand. The most recent Hummer is from 2010, which is still currently covered by GM’s requirements that CPO vehicles be no more than six years old, and have less than 80,000 miles. Vehicles covered by this program come complete with an extended six year/100,000 Powertrain Limited Warranty.
In order to ensure that all Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are safe to drive, Hummer subjects all CPO vehicles to a 172-point inspection that includes the following procedures:
- Scheduled Maintenance
- Tire and Brake Pads Check
- Interior Detailing
- Road Test
- Engine Compartment Inspection
- Under Vehicle Inspection
- Exterior Check and Detailing
Hummer CPO vehicles come with a Powertrain Limited Warranty, which covers repairs or replacements of major engine, drive system, and transmission components for six years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. This is on top of the standard 12-month, 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which covers the entire vehicle for either 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first).
The warranty also includes certain benefits including:
A complete CARFAX vehicle history report including the service record.
A three-month trial subscription of SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s All Access package.
A three-month trial of OnStar services.
A 24-hour roadside assistance program.
A reimbursement program that covers transportation expenses in the event your Hummer breaks down.
For specific reimbursement amounts and roadside assistance details, see an authorized Hummer/GM Certified Pre-Owned car dealer.
Purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Hummer vehicle instead of a used vehicle can make a difference in the price at most dealerships. The bottom line will usually be around 8% higher than a regular “used” vehicle.
Compare Hummer 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.
