"We are happy to start the year on such a positive note," Peter Grady -- Director, Remarketing and Fleet Operations, said.

Chrysler Certified Pre-Owned 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 that is added to any remaining 3-year/36,000-mile comprehensive new vehicle warranty.

In addition, Chrysler Financial consistently offers special financing programs for qualified CPOV buyers, and along with the Carfax vehicle history report, a Carfax limited buyback guarantee is offered as part of its certified pre-owned vehicle program partnership with the automaker.
