FCA India has launched its new certified pre-owned vehicle business – Selected for You. The new used car business arm comes after three years of the successful launch of the first ever made-in-India Jeep.
The OEM says that with nearly 60,000 Jeep Compass SUVs on Indian roads, customers will now have the opportunity to trade in any existing vehicle for either a new or a certified pre-owned Jeep Compass by registering on the company website.
The SelectedforYou is currently operational in 42 FCA dealerships across India and will be expanded to 65 by August 2020. FCA India says it had introduced a pilot operation of the pre-owned business in Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad in 2019 and will now quickly ensure nationwide presence in the coming weeks.
Commenting on the launch of SelectedforYou, Dr. Partha Datta, president and MD, FCA India said, “The Jeep Compass enjoys exceptional residual value in the Indian automobile market, and that is a great opportunity for our customers. SelectedforYou, being cultivated as a shop-in-shop business model, assures trust, confidence and peace of mind for customers. A certified pre-owned Jeep Compass under SelectedforYou, promises high quality, certified standards and will be as reliable as our straight from the factory model. We are entering the pre-owned vehicle business also because are gearing up to launch all-new Jeep models in India and Jeep customers will have the opportunity to upgrade.”
The used-car business will accept vehicles of any brand in trade for either a new, or pre-owned Jeep Compass. Every pre-owned Jeep Compass will be certified only after a 125-point inspection check, thorough verification of past ownership, service records and extensive pre-sale on-road testing. A certified Jeep Compass will be offered with a warranty of 36 months or 60,000km (whichever comes earlier), complemented by 24x7 Roadside Assistance (RSA).
