If you can swing it in this tough economic climate, it sure isn't a bad time to buy a car. On top of GM's employee pricing deal for new cars, the automaker is also offering a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty on all of its certified pre-owned vehicles.
Bumper-to-bumper and fully transferable, the warranty can be tacked on to GM's typical five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
GM has also extended its standards for CPO vehicles to include models as old as six years or with as many as 75,000 miles on the odometer. The deal only applies to the Buick, Chevy, GMC, Pontiac and Saturn brands. Left out are Cadillac, Hummer and Saab (although, thanks to gas prices, there's never been a cheaper time to buy a new Hummer).
GM expects to sell its 3 millionth vehicle through its certified pre-owned program this September, which would make it the first certified used-vehicle program to reach that mark.
