You’ll even be grateful for OnStar®’s Turn-by-Turn Navigation service, which makes for easy navigation so you can focus on driving.

What Are Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles?

Used cars are a great way to save big on buying your next vehicle, but the downside is that buying used comes with its own set of risks. When you find that perfect used car at a low price, you might be worried if it’s too good to be true, with a host of undetectable mechanical failures waiting under the surface. You can bypass these concerns by purchasing certified pre-owned vehicles instead of used ones. Certified pre-owned, or CPO, programs are run by auto manufacturers so customers have access to more reliable previously-loved cars.

 

Take Chevy, for example. Chevrolet requires all vehicles used in their CPO program to be less than six years old and to have less than 75,000 miles on the odometer. In addition, customers get benefits like a warranty, a schedule maintenance plan that covers two visits, a free Vehicle History Report, and more. The way it works is that Chevy takes a used vehicle that’s been given back to the dealership and subjects it to a 172-point inspection. If the vehicle passes the tests, it gets certified.

 

We have a whole host of certified pre-owned vehicles on our lot here at Bill Roberts Chevrolet. If you want an option for buying a new ride that is affordable and reliable, opt for Chevrolet’s CPO program.

2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE Blitzes Nürburgring Lap Record

The standard Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 set a Nürburgring record, but the brand wanted to kick it up a notch with the new Camaro ZL1 1LE. When equipped with the 1LE package, the ZL1 gets all kinds of performance upgrades that make it a natural on the racetrack. In June, Chevy teased enthusiasts with a short video of the track, hinting that that Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE had set a new Nürburgring lap record. A few days later, the brand followed it up with a video confirming that, yes, the ZL1 1LE did just that.

 

Chevrolet unveiled a video of the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE taking the ‘Ring by storm, tearing up the track and eventually finishing with a new record lap time of 7 minutes and 16.04 seconds. That’s over 13 seconds faster than its predecessor! The lightweight model with the 1LE package includes tweaks to its design to make it more aerodynamic as well as a 650-hp V8 engine mated to a six-speed manual – a contrast to the Camaro ZL1’s ten-speed automatic.

 

If you want to watch the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE set a Nürburgring lap record, the video is available online. You can also call us here at Bill Roberts Chevrolet if you want more information on driving the Camaro ZL1 equipped with the 1LE package.
