For many automotive enthusiasts, the Jaguar brand has always epitomized luxury. And, quite expectedly, luxury vehicles are typically pampered by their owners. This is certainly the case for the vast majority of Jaguar sedans and SUV’s that we see in our factory-authorized Jaguar Service Center. So it comes as no surprise that Jaguar was recently named Top Premium Brand in the 2021 Pre-Owned Value Awards (POVA) by ALG, which is a third party leader in projecting automotive residual values. And it is this distinction that brings us to the intersection of luxury and value.
The Finest of the Finest
When considering the purchase of a Jaguar that has been on the road for any length of time, it’s appropriate to consider the merits of a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar.
Jaguar was among the pioneers of the concept of Certified Pre-Owned luxury vehicles, with its “Jaguar Select Edition”. These were hand-selected, pre-owned Jaguar models that were the finest of the finest on the road. This highly successful and well received concept has now evolved into the Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar program.
As was the case back then, to qualify as a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar, a vehicle must meet very strict criteria in terms of age, mileage, cosmetics, and mechanical performance. After meeting these criteria, each vehicle must then pass a 165-point inspection that ensures the vehicle is in optimum electrical and mechanical condition before it can become an Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar. In this way, we can confirm that the vehicle is as reliable mechanically as it is stunning visually.
Approved Certified Benefits
To simply state that a vehicle has met certain requirements in terms of its outward appearance and mechanical integrity is one thing, but to “certify” our level of confidence, Jaguar adds a limited warranty on top of the vehicle’s existing new car warranty. This warranty covers the Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar for up to one year and unlimited miles, or two years and 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. When you consider those numbers, that is an astounding vote of confidence for the Jaguar certification process and the faith the manufacturer puts into its product, even when pre-owned.
Expert Care and Service
Worth noting is that the entire certification process is conducted by Jaguar-trained Service Technicians. They employ he latest diagnostic equipment to verify the vehicle’s condition, replacing any sub-par parts with genuine Jaguar replacement parts wherever possible. Then the Jaguar Technician conducts a final road test before personally signing off that the vehicle passes all 165 points of inspection and is qualified to become an Approved Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar.
Yet any vehicle on the road is subject to mechanical failure, correct? Yes, of course. Even one that has been pampered, inspected, refurbished, and certified. So, to ensure the satisfaction of those who drive a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar, we provide Jaguar Assistance. This is a 24/7 roadside assistance program that protects your Jaguar through the entire duration of the warranty period. Jaguar Assistance covers you should your vehicle become disabled due to mechanical issues or an accident, as well as minor incidences, such as a punctured tire.
