Given global disruptions to supply chains and an unprecedented reduction in new car availability across all brands, it seems like an appropriate time to discuss the benefits of purchasing or leasing a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Jaguar. Cole European currently has several meticulously maintained CPO Jaguar models in inventory and ready for immediate delivery, which may present an attractive option for those waiting to purchase a new Jaguar.
What Defines a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar
It’s important to understand the primary objective of the certification process, which is to provide the prospective owner with an extremely high level of confidence in the quality and reliability of these pre-owned vehicles. This is achieved both through the extensive inspection process that each Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Jaguar must pass and the genuine Jaguar warranty that accompanies it.
To even be eligible for consideration, the Jaguar must be from the most recent 5 model years and have fewer than 60,000 miles on the odometer. The vehicle must have also been built for the U.S. market.
Once it is determined the that Jaguar meets those initial criteria, it must pass the remainder of a detailed inspection process that evaluates key items within the following categories:
- Vehicle Eligibility
- Preliminary Checks
- Interior / General
- Electrical Tests - Interior
- Heat/Air Condition Systems
- Electrical Test - Exterior
- Exterior / General
- Exterior / Luggage Compartment
- Exterior / Engine Area
- Undercarriage / Drivetrain
- Tests / Stationary
- Tests / Road
- Tests / Emissions
In total, there are 165 points on the checklist that determine whether a vehicle is qualified to become a Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar. Essentially, it covers the entire vehicle in terms of both mechanical and cosmetic integrity.
The Benefits of Certification
Once certified, the Jaguar carries with it a number of benefits for the new owner:
Jaguar Warranty — Beyond whatever remaining factory warranty may exist for the particular vehicle, Jaguar adds coverage for up to 1-year / unlimited miles or 2-years / 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Roadside Assistance — Your Jaguar will be covered for the entire duration of the above warranty period with 24/7 Jaguar Assistance, which covers vehicle disablement due to breakdown or accident, all the way to minor emergencies such as a punctured tire or lock-out situation.
Vehicle History Report — Naturally, you will be presented with a history of your Jaguar, including Service history, mileage, ownership, and any other noteworthy information.
No Deductible Warranty Work — Any warrantable repairs covered under the Approved Certified Pre-Owned Program require absolutely no deductible payments.
Transferable Warranty — Should you choose to sell your CPO Jaguar during the warranty period, the warranty is transferable, preserving a significant aspect of the vehicle’s value.
In essence, Jaguar is partnering with you by standing behind the vehicles that pass the factory’s certification process. If there are issues, Jaguar shields the new owner with a warranty and roadside assistance.
Selecting the Ideal Certified Pre-Owned Jaguar
Despite appearing essentially new and including a genuine Jaguar warranty, these are nonetheless pre-owned vehicles and, as such, are unique. Therefore, finding one that matches your specifications in terms of age, mileage, color, and features is less under your control than selecting a new Jaguar from the current model year. (Although, under current market conditions, it may actually be easier to find a CPO Jaguar that meats your criteria than a new one).
