GM Certified Brands Inspection Checklist Guidelines

The purpose of these guideitnes is to provide some additional helpful tnstructions to dealer personnel assoctated with the preparation of vehicles, which are intended to become GM Certified. It is the dealer’s responsibility to ensure that qualified and trained technicians am assigned to prepare vehicles. Keep in mind that the intent of the inspection checklist is to provide a comprehensive set of vehicle checks, which when performed along with a quality reconditiontng will achieve a quality used vehicle, which is ready to be sold as GM Certified. Additionally, copy distribution of the Inspection. Checklist can be found at the bottom of each form. Please follow this process.

1. CHECK VEHICLE HISTORY (GM VIS) AND CARFAX

Input the vehicle’s VIN into GM Vehicle Information System (GMVIS) or Saab warranty system, and check the history for frame damage, title branding and other problems, which may cause the vehicle to not be a candidate for certification.

Interior Appearance Standards

Judgment plays an important role in the interior inspection. The interior is where the new owner will spend hislher time, and where prospective buyers will form important first impressions. Attention to detail is important Remember the intention is to present an “almost-like-nevi’ appearance:

* As with the exterior, a comprehensive interior appearance inspection requires relative cleanliness of the vehicle. If it is not, perlorm a preliminary cleaning and vacuuming prior to beginning your inspection.

* One item not addressed directly on the checklist ja interior odor. Tobacco smoke, especially pipes and cigars, can leave an obnoxious smell in the vehicle that will stand in the way of many prospective buyers purchasing the vehicle. Additionally, mold, mildew and many heavily scented products designed to overcome such odors cain have the same effect on customers. If the vehicle interior contains an objectionable odor, make certain to include its removal in the results of your inspection. GM Service Parts has several products to assist you in correcting the conditions described above.
