Let's face it, buying a car is a big deal. In fact, it's the second largest investment you're likely to make. And, with the thousands of vehicles to choose from, how can you be sure you're making the right choice?
First, do the research to find the type of vehicle that best serves your needs and your budget. Then, use the power of the Internet to determine what is available that meets those requirements.
Now, the next step is crucial. How can you be sure to make the best choice? That's where we come in with Q-Certified. There are cars, then there are Q-Certified cars. What's the difference? Plenty!
Every vehicle must meet or exceed exacting inspection and reconditioning standards in order to become "Q-Certified." Each vehicle undergoes a 128-point inspection.
And, only ASE Certified Technicians who have completed Q-Certified training may perform this service.
To make sure that each Q-Certified vehicle is in strict compliance with our tough standards, a nationally known independent third party randomly evaluates Q-Certified dealerships just to be sure.
As part of the Q-Certified process, each vehicle is put through a comprehensive vehicle history evaluation from Carfax. Every vehicle must receive a clean vehicle title report.
In addition, every Q-Certified vehicle owner will receive a Q-Ultimate Limited Powertrain Warranty providing complete coverage details. Not only that, but each vehicle qualifies for an optional Mechanical Repair Service Contract that can protect you from the cost of repairs far down the road.
Orlando Kia West owners receive a one year membership to Road America's Auto Assist program, providing roadside assistance, towing, emergency travel expense reimbursement, gas delivery, tire hazard protection and lockout benefits. So there it is! The ultimate in vehicle certification with benefits that add value to every mile you drive. You should know that there's a lot of different approaches to certifying vehicles, but no one does what we do.
Remember, not just certified... Q-Certified!
