The Saab Automobile USA Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Saab Program is a program where you can buy a previously owned Saab that met a lengthy list of requirements:

In lieu of the lengthy list of requirements in terms of electronic, mechanical, etc., here is a summary of what the Saab Automobile USA CPO program is all about from http://www.saabcertified.com

“Before your Saab is cleared to leave the runway, it goes through a 117-plus point inspection. To win the designation of Saab Certified Pre-Owned, a vehicle must meet the following criteria:

* Comprehensive road test evaluation
* Inspection of electrical, brake, cooling and fuel systems
* Up to date on all scheduled maintenance requirements
* Interior and exterior inspected and detailed
* Carfax report available upon request at no charge
* Saa dealer for 117-point inspection list

Here is also a short-list of requirements from the Saab Automobile USA website :

The Products:

The Retired Saab 9-2x

The Saab 9-3 Range

The Saab 9-5 Range

The Saab 9-7x Range

The Requirements:

To begin with, a Certified Pre-Owned Saab must satisfy a long list of requirements: the vehicle must be less than four years old, and it cannot have more than 60,000 miles on the odometer. And not only must the Saab be in excellent mechanical condition at the onset, but it must meet high visual standards as well.

Any of the following will immediately eliminate a vehicle from the Saab Certified program:

# Over 60,000 miles

# Older than 2004 model year

# Warranty claim inquiry discrepancy

# Unresolved problem found on Carfax Vehicle History Report

# TMU (True Mileage Unknown) odometer reading

# Frame, fire, and/or flood damage

From there, factory trained Saab technicians take over and exhaustively flight check and update the vehicle. Through a rigorous and extensive 110-point inspection/refurbishing process, each Saab is inspected, reconditioned, and detailed to ensure that it meets the highest possible standards – indeed, as high as your standards. Only then can it be Saab Certified.

The Warranty:
Saab cars are renowned for their outstanding longevity and durability. Your Certified Pre-Owned Saab includes one of the industry’s most encompassing warranty packages. As a new owner, you automatically receive the remaining balance of:

# The factory 4-year/50,000 mile (whichever comes first) original new-car limited warranty

# The factory 6-year/unlimited mile new-car corrosion protection limited warranty

Saab Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty
In addition, your Certified Pre-Owned Saab qualifies for a comprehensive Saab Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty*, up to 72 months/100,000 miles (whichever comes first) from original in-service date, which provides coverage that goes into effect after the original factory warranty has expired. This coverage is fully backed by Saab Automobile USA, Inc.

Roadside Assistance Program
Just like a new Saab, all Certified Pre-Owned cars include a final element of reassurance: a comprehensive Roadside Assistance program. Should you experience car trouble, help is just a phone call away. Saab’s much heralded Roadside Assistance program includes full 24-hour coverage, 365 days a year, anywhere in the United States. And best of all, it’s yours at no additional charge for the duration of the warranty. In the unlikely event that you need to use it, you can count on assistance with changing a flat tire, a jump-start, fuel delivery, towing, and even a locksmithing service.

*Exclusions from the original factory warranty apply. See your retailer for details. Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty period commences from the original in-service date and lasts 6 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Items excluded from coverage under this Limited Warranty are listed below. Coverage terminates upon failure to satisfy care and service requirements as described in manufacturer’s original limited warranty. Refer to the original limited warranty for other limitations. Exclusions include, but not limited to, minor adjustments, wiper blades, drive belts, brake pads and rotors, clutch discs, telematics, audio equipment, batteries, tires, and all other exclusions as described in the original limited warranty.

    I am wondering why a master fuse would not be covered under my Saab CPO.

    Why would a main fuse NOT be covered under my Saab CPO?
