Enterprise Certified™ Used Cars

Every car, truck, SUV and van must pass a rigorous inspection before being reconditioned and offered as an Enterprise Certified™ vehicle.

Advantages of Buying an Enterprise Certified™:

Rigorously Inspected

All Enterprise Certified cars pass a thorough inspection by an ASE-certified technician, who tests all of the systems listed below. Any necessary repairs and replacements are made and inspected again. If a vehicle fails any aspect of this inspection, it is not sent to an Enterprise Car Sales dealership.

Certified Manufacturer Vehicles

We have a large inventory of certified cars from a variety manufacturers, including Chevrolet, Ford, Hyundai, Jeep, Nissan and Toyota.

Used Cars with Warranty

Because Enterprise Certified cars are recent-model vehicles, many may still be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. That means buying an Enterprise Certified car gets you:

  • The remainder of the manufacturer warranty, if applicable, plus…
  • The 12-month/12,000-mile limited powertrain warranty that begins on the vehicle purchase date, and…
  • All of the benefits that come with owning an Enterprise Certified car, including a free CARFAX Vehicle History Report™ and 12 months of roadside assistance.

Extended Service Plan

While many Enterprise vehicles are still under the manufacturer’s warranty, there’s a chance that you may need some type of repair that falls outside of what’s covered.

The Enterprise Mechanical Repair Protection plan can help you save money on unexpected repairs and keep your car running smoothly. Designed specifically for used vehicles, the plan offers “exclusionary” coverage, meaning unless a component or system is excluded, it’s covered. Ask your Sales Consultant for details.

Buying an Enterprise Certified car provides peace of mind knowing that your vehicle was thoroughly inspected and ready for worry-free ownership.
