Certified used car programs are not new to the industry. It’s how automakers assure their customers that they’re buying a used car that still lives up to the quality of new.
Bugatti is the latest automaker to offer a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle program. It’s for those one percent who are in the market for a Bugatti Chiron or Veyron but only for a used model. Of course, there are several pinball machines and vendors there. But given the incredibly high cost of maintaining an old Veyron, there are plenty of advantages to going the official route of buying a used Bugatti.
Of course, Bugatti promises the highest quality when buying a Chiron or Veyron through its Certified Pre-Owned program.
“Those who choose to buy a used Veyron or Chiron through an authorized Bugatti partner will be able to do so in complete safety, knowing that the vehicle they are purchasing exhibits the unmistakable quality expected of the Bugatti badge”, according to the press release.
The cars also come with a one-year limited warranty. For the Chiron, it is as comprehensive as the new vehicle warranty, covering all parts and labor for mechanical, electrical, corrosion or paint problems. On the other hand, the old Veyron’s limited warranty covers all mechanical and electrical components, as well as the cost of parts and labor.
Best of all, the one-year limited warranty is honored anywhere in the world. So suppose you bought your Bugatti Certified Pre-Owned in Europe, service centers in the Middle East should honor that warranty (and vice versa).
For warranty work, only authorized Bugatti service partners are allowed to touch the car and only original Bugatti spare parts should be used. These spare parts come with a two-year warranty. Certified Pre-Owned buyers also benefit from an annual service included during the first year of ownership, performed at an authorized Bugatti service partner.
