Unlike conventional used car buying, CARSOME's range of certified pre-owned cars have to pass a stringent 175 point inspection before they are refurbished by skilled technicians.
When buying a used car, customers often have concerns about the car's condition and whether they will need to fork out more money for repairs. With CARSOME Certified, buyers can have a total peace of mind as these cars have already been thoroughly inspected.
CARSOME believes in creating a trusted used car ecosystem that is better in every way. That is why from the moment you start browsing until the time you’re enjoying your dream ride (home delivery can be arranged), CARSOME Certified is there to assure trust, transparency, and choice at every step.
Quality Cars Backed by a 175-Point Inspection & CARSOME Certified Refurbishment Process
What defines quality in the company's pre-owned CARSOME Certified cars starts with a stringent 175-point inspection that identifies the best cars, followed by the CARSOME Refurbishment Process where cars that have passed the inspection are refurbished to operate at their peak performance.
175-point inspection: CARSOME's inspection standards ensure that cars are free of major accidents or flood damage.
CARSOME Certified Refurbishment Process: After the 175-point inspection is complete, the car then arrives at the CARSOME Certified Lab, where the CARSOME Certified Refurbishment Process begins which combines data and technology, automotive know-how, and skilled and experienced technicians to raise the bar of quality for pre-owned cars.
The CARSOME Certified Refurbishment Process
Step 1: A Stringent Selection
Only cars that have gone through CARSOME's stringent 175-point inspection are chosen and sent to the CARSOME Certified Lab.
Step 2: Mechanical and General Repairs
With mechanical and general repairs, global safety standards are followed to ensure CARSOME Certified cars operate at optimum functionality, while tools such as an Onbard Diagnostic Scanner (ODS) detect and service all electronic issues to maintain key safety features.
CARSOME also go beyond global safety standards for tire treads (depth must be more than 2.2mm, global standards are set at 1.6 mm) and brake pad thickness (must be more than 4mm, global standards are set at 3mm).
Step 3: Body and Paint
Scratches and dents are marked according to a strict criteria that determines if any body panel resprays are required. Only reputable and quality OEM paints are used, along with a 3-step high performance paint correction.
Polishing is also carried out with protective wax for a smooth and mirror-like finish.
Step 4: Detailing
The final touches include an exterior wash, which covers the engine bay. An extensive interior deep-clean is a conducted.
Step 5: Final Control Check
