Every one of our Specialist Certified Cars has gone through a brand-specific inspection by a certified mechanic to ensure it meets CarHavn's high standards. This inspection includes regular items such as thickness of brake pads, condition of rotors, depth of tire tread, and condition of oil. But it covers specialist items too. We put our expertise as European Specialists to check items like oil pan gaskets, valve cover gaskets, thermostats, and others. You get more value for your money, and a truly reconditioned car.
We're so confident in the quality and performance of our Specialist Certified cars that we back every one of them with a 90-Day Powertrain Warranty. This warranty covers select parts of the engine, transmission, and all-wheel drive systems (if the car is so equipped). It also provides preferential access to our Service Center, a loaner vehicle (based on availability). This warranty goes well above the State of Connecticut required warranty for used vehicles.
Every brand has years and models that are superior than others. As European Specialists, we have done our homework, and know what are the great models, and what years to avoid. We have access to a great deal of data on used car reliability and performance, in addition to repair information such as Technical Service Bulletins. We use our expertise to purchase only years, makes and models models that lead to a great owner experience, and screen out the known problematic years and models.
At the heart of our Specialist Certified Program is the level and quality of our reconditioning. Our certified technicians use specialist equipment, such as diagnostic laptops, to go over our European cars, and repair major items in our 60-point inspection. This proprietary inspection checklist goes above the items that most dealers or mass retailers cover, and contains brand-specific parts and tests.
Clean and sanitized! Our in-house detailing team uses professional detailing equipment and safe products to get as close to 'that new car smell' as possible. Their careful attention to detail is honed through years of expertise at top detailers. Many buyers come back every year to leave their cars in that showroom condition!
