Somerset created its Post-Sale Inspections (“PSI”) as a tool to keep deals together and provide our customers with peace of mind. A customer purchasing a PSI has assurance that the vehicle purchased passed a rigorous test, was properly represented by the seller and that Somerset guarantees that the vehicle meets the dealer’s expectations. Further, Somerset stands behind every inspection for 7 or 14 days after PSI completion.

PSI Policy:

Vehicle Qualifications: Vehicles with a final sale price greater than $3000 and an odometer reading of less than 125,000 miles are eligible for a Post Sale Inspection.

PSI Inspection Checklist: The following items and areas are included as part of the Full Post Sale Inspection. The checklist applies to defects that are singularly $500 or more to repair or replace on vehicles sold in-lane and $500 cumulative visible damage on vehicles sold online.

•Odometer Verification

•Transmission Engages & Functions

•Engine Function & Operation

PSI Guarantee:

•Depending on the type of Post Sale Inspection selected, all items checked in the Post Sale Inspection are guaranteed for 7 or 14 days after the sale. If an item or part that was inspected fails during the guarantee period, the item will be replaced or repaired at Somerset’s option.

•Vehicles challenged for issues must have 200 miles or less accumulated on the odometer between the time of inspection and the challenge date.

•The Post Sale Inspection guarantee is not a buy-back policy but a guarantee of the operation and function of the items inspected.

•The Post Sale Inspection is not an extension of the Somerset National Arbitration Policy.

PSI Terms & Conditions

•The buyer is responsible for the PSI fee even if the vehicle fails inspection

•The guarantees and provisions apply only to the original buyer of the PSI. This guarantee is voided once the vehicle is re-sold. The PSI guarantees cannot be transferred to any subsequent wholesale or retail vehicle buyer.

•Vehicles that pass the PSI and are later found to have arbitral items will be processed in the same manner as all other arbitrations. If the arbitral items found were missed on the PSI, Somerset will be responsible for

the arbitration in discussions with the seller.

•If a vehicle fails a Post-Sale Inspection and the buyer chooses to void the sale based on misrepresentations made as to the vehicle’s condition, the vehicle would enter the arbitration process.
