Advantages of Purchasing a VW Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

September 1st, 2016 by

You’re in the market for a new-to-you vehicle. You don’t want just anything. You want a vehicle that you can count on, something dependable. You’re not really in the market for a brand new vehicle and you certainly don’t want to overpay for a used vehicle. You want a solid vehicle with no surprises at a fair price. Enter the VW Certified Pre-Owned program.

Let’s be frank. Anytime you purchase any vehicle – new or used – there is the chance that you could have mechanical problems. Even the best-designed vehicles occasionally need to be taken in for repairs. We would never claim that buying a VW certified pre-owned vehicle is an exception to this rule. However, there is a world of difference between buying a used car and taking your chances and buying a VW certified pre-owned vehicle.

Why? Simply put, we have put certified pre-owned vehicles under the microscope. Our trained and certified technicians put pre-owned vehicles through a 112-point inspection. We check it all. If there’s a problem, the vast majority of the time, we catch it and fix it. We don’t certify a vehicle until we’re confident that it’s right. After all, our name and reputation is on the line when we tell you that a vehicle is VW certified pre-owned.

Some of the major items checked on each VW certified pre-owned vehicle are: engine performance, starter, engine vibration or knocking, transmission performance, brakes, steering performance and maintenance records. Records are delivered up-to-date with your VW certified pre-owned vehicle.

Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth Is
We’re so confident in our technicians’ ability to spot and fix any problems before you take delivery of a certified pre-owned car, truck, SUV or crossover that we’re happy to offer a full two-year, 24,000 mile limited warranty. The warranty has a miniscule $50 deductible and covers:

Manufacturing Defects
Material Defects
Rear Axle
Front Axle
Electrical Systems
A/C and Heating
And more. Additionally, at no extra cost to you, you will receive 24 months of roadside assistance on your certified pre-owned vehicle.

Alternately, you can opt for a 1-year/12,000 mile limited warranty on any of our certified pre-owned vehicles – even non-Volkswagen cars, trucks, SUVs and crossovers. Non-VWs still go through the 112-point inspection. The warranty provides access not only to our service station, but to VW service stations at participating dealerships around the country (more than 2,800 dealerships). While we specialize in Volkswagens, we want all of our valued customers to drive off our lot in a dependable new or pre-owned vehicle. We know that customers who buy pre-owned cars will come back again if they get a fair deal on a vehicle they can depend on.

Other Benefits of Buying VW Certified Pre-Owned
VW certified pre-owned vehicles also come with the CARFAX report, giving you detailed information about the car, its service record, any accidents it has been involved in and any repairs it has needed to date. We want you to know all about any pre-owned vehicle before you buy it so there will be no surprises down the road.

Additionally, buy one of our certified pre-owned vehicles that are equipped for SiriusXM Satellite Radio and you’ll receive a three month trial subscription, giving you access to more than 150 satellite radio channels. So, whether you want to head bang to Hair Nation, listen to the latest hits, listen to news and sports radio or anything in between, you’ll always be able to find a station just right for you.
