is a warranty company that we use here at West Palm Beach KIA for our
pre-owned vehicles. This special warranty program is available on most
of our pre-owned vehicles that meet there specific requirements. The
vehicle has to go through a rigorous inspection process:
- Q Certified vehicles
must meet or exceed exacting inspection/ reconditioning standards in
order to be called a Q Certified vehicle.
Certified vehicles receive a comprehensive vehicle inspection that
scrutinizes all major vehicle systems including engine, transmission,
drivetrain, brakes, steering, suspension, heating and cooling systems,
tires and exhaust system. Q Certified vehicle owners will receive a
completed Pre-Owned Vehicle inspection Report.
Certified dealerships have Used Vehicle technicians, who have completed
Q Certified training on exacting standards, perform a comprehensive
inspection/ reconditioning process.
Peace of Mind
Certified vehicles go through a comprehensive vehicle history
evaluation to assure that your Q Certified vehicle does not contain a
department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) reported incidents such as salvage,
fire, flood damage, odometer problems or lemon history.
- Q Certified vehicles receive a "clean" vehicle title report.
