Each of the eight luxury brands at Santa Barbara Auto Group hold uncompromising standards for certified pre-owned vehicles. Customers can expect high standards with every certified pre-owned purchase so they can buy with confidence.

Earning the Designation

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, certified brand technicians inspect every vehicle using a standardized point inspection. Only well-maintained, late model cars are considered with a positive Vehicle History Report.

Furthermore, a thorough appearance inspection is completed to scrutinize the fit and finish inside and out. In short, each vehicle must uphold the luxury and sophistication of its brand.
