National Automotive Experts has formed partnerships with National Vehicle Certification Program Group, Virtual Motors, Automobile Resource Group, National Warranty Administration Network, Onsite Analysis and Midas International Inc. to offer independent and franchised dealers the ability to certify their pre-owned vehicles through the National Vehicle Certification Program. This collaboration enables the dealer to offer a Lifetime Certified Powertrain Service Contract for all vehicles certified through the National Vehicle Certification Program.
The National Vehicle Certification Program facilitates inspection of vehicles through an independent, third-party firm at the dealer or consumer’s location. After a thorough visual inspection and test drive, the vehicle is photographed and the images are uploaded to Virtual Motors’ Wholesale Vehicle Network (“WIN”) and for viewing to the Internet. The inspector pulls fluid samples from the engine and the transmission and drops them off at the Authorized Service Center in the area. The Authorized Service Center will perform a Scientific Fluid Analysis, which will help to determine if the vehicle is eligible for certification.
All vehicles certified through National Vehicle Certification Program will receive a 90-day or 3,000-mile Engine and Transmission Warranty, and be listed at no charge on both the WIN platform and www.fearfreecars.com, an all new, soon to be launched consumer site.
By forming the new partnership with Virtual Motors, National Automotive Experts, in conjunction with National Vehicle Certification Program, will now offer the availability of a Lifetime Certified Powertrain Service Contract to all individuals purchasing a certified vehicle. The Lifetime Certified Powertrain Service Contract is available on all cars with less than 100,000 miles at the time of sale and no more than 10 model years old. This is an unprecedented opportunity for independent and franchised dealers to offer a quality pre-owned vehicle with a lifetime of peace-of-mind to the purchaser.
The partnership between National Automotive Experts and Virtual Motors also includes the help and assistance of Midas International Inc., a nationally recognized repair and maintenance organization. Midas International Inc. will have an active role in the maintenance requirements for the certification and Lifetime Certified Service Contract programs.
