Not every car becomes Shift Certified

Being Shift Certified is something special. It’s that little bit extra that makes a great car feel like a fantastic deal. And we're picky. We say “no” to lots of vehicles people want to sell to us — so it’s easier for you to say yes to the one you want.The end result? Great value on safe cars that sell quickly, no haggling necessary.

Total transparency.

Findings from our inspection are compiled into an inspection report so that you know as much about the car as we do.

Love it or bring it back: our 7-day guarantee

If you’re not happy with your purchase for whatever reason, you have seven days or 200 miles (whichever comes first) to return your car for a full refund.

Free 30-day powertrain warranty included

Peace of mind matters at Shift, which is why we include a 30-day powertrain warranty—free of charge—with every Shift Certified vehicle.
