Jupiter Pro Parts Announces the Auto Industry's First-Ever Certified Pre-Owned Parts™ Program for Repair Pros
CPO Program offers unprecedented "No-Fault" warranty covering qualifying engines and transmissions for five yrs. or 75k miles

SAN FRANCISCO, CA. (March 19, 2020) – Jupiter Pro Parts, the nation's largest source of used and remanufactured engines and transmissions for repair pros, continues to disrupt the industry with the launch of the first-ever Certified Pre-Owned Parts™ program. Qualifying Certified Pre- Owned Parts™ offered by Jupiter now come with a first-of-its-kind "No-Fault" warranty that guarantees their service life for five years or 75k miles. In the event a claim is required, repair shops call customer care for a replacement – no questions asked.

"With Certified Pre-Owned Parts [TM], repair pros can now enjoy the low cost of used parts without the traditionally associated risk of the unknown. We guarantee every single CPO part we sell and give repair professionals the peace-of-mind they deserve," said Bill Atkinson, Jupiter Pro Parts Chief Revenue Officer.

Not all used engines and transmissions available from Jupiter Pro Parts qualify as Certified Pre- Owned Parts[TM]. The Jupiter Pro Parts team carefully evaluates every part it offers with a demanding quality assurance review that evaluates various criteria, including the mileage on the part, historical performance across the part’s same make and model, and the results of any testing done on the part.

“Jupiter Pro Parts has a competitive advantage developed over six years of experience selling tens of thousands of parts across a network of select suppliers.” said Doug Renert, Chairman of Jupiter Pro Parts, “Our ever-growing pool of data, backed by a rigorous quality assurance review, allows Jupiter to provide a level of protection to repair pros that no one else in the industry can offer.”

"Used auto parts are essential to keep major repairs on older cars affordable, particularly when it comes to engine and transmission replacements," said Michael Krug, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Jupiter Pro Parts. "Our new CPO Parts[TM] program makes it possible for professionals to keep their services affordable without having to take a gamble with used parts."

Jupiter Pro Parts launched in 2013 to help automotive repair shops find quality used and remanufactured engines and transmissions. Renamed under new ownership, Jupiter Pro Parts has grown into the nation's largest source of used and remanufactured auto parts. They continue to disrupt the market by now offering a first-of-its-kind Certified Pre- Owned Parts™ program with an unprecedented "No-Fault" warranty. Devoted to creating peace-of-mind for automotive professionals, Jupiter Pro Parts continues to raise the bar on product reliability, exceptional customer service, and overall simplification of the parts purchasing experience.
