Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned

Program Summary

    All Volkswagen WorldAuto Certified Pre-Owned vehicles include:

    • 24/7 roadside assistance
    • Carfax® vehicle history report
    • 112-point inspection
    • $50 deductible

Certified Volkswagen Pre-Owned Program Overview

To qualify for the Volkswagen WorldAuto Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program, a vehicle must be no more than five model years old and have fewer than 75,000 miles on the odometer.

Every car is inspected thoroughly, repaired and/or reconditioned where necessary by Volkswagen-trained technicians using genuine Volkswagen parts. For example, the engine has to be running smoothly and quietly, the transmission has to shift seamlessly, the brakes must feel strong and confident, and the steering has to be precise.

It's worth checking out what special financing deals Volkswagen might be offering at the time. Quite often there are offers like the first month's payment being free up to $500 and 1.99 percent APR for 60 months (for well-qualified applicants going through Volkswagen Credit).

Also bear in mind that Volkswagen cars often have interiors that tend to be more upscale and use the same drivetrains as the company's far more expensive Audi stablemates. So a CPO Volkswagen is a way of obtaining German-car cachet for mainstream outlay.

Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Features


  • 112-point inspection. This includes bringing all the scheduled maintenance up to date, and ensures all service records are present and correct


Once the new-car warranty expires, a Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen vehicle has a 24-month / 24,000-mile (whichever comes first) bumper-to-bumper warranty starting from the date of the CPO sale. Among the areas covered are engine, transmission, steering, brakes, axles, heating/air conditioning, electrical systems, and manual or manufacturing defects. Volkswagen charges a $50 deductible for work carried out under the CPO warranty. Since parts for German cars are usually quite pricey, this should not be a deal-breaker. There's also a $150 fee when transferring the CPO warranty from one owner to the next. For greater peace of mind, VW offers the opportunity of extending the warranty up to 100,000 miles and the cost could be absorbed into the finance deal.


  • 24/7 roadside assistance: 365 days a year for two years. This includes flat tire changes, emergency fuel delivery and emergency repairs
  • Free 3-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio's All Access package, which is also available on smartphones and tablets via the SiriusXM app
  • Carfax® vehicle history report. Every report checks for title problems, ownership history and accidents
