Certified Pre-owned Peace of Mind at Volkswagen of Athens

August 3rd, 2014 by

When folks consider buying a used car, often their biggest worry is that they may be buying someone else’s headache. That’s why the Certified Pre-owned Volkswagen program here at Volkswagen of Athens is so great. Every certified pre-owned Volkswagen comes with the peace of mind of knowing that it was thoroughly inspected and has met the rigorous standards set by Volkswagen.

In order for any used Volkswagen to qualify as a certified pre-owned vehicle, it must meet some pretty strict requirements:
It can be no more than 5 years since it was manufactured.
It must have fewer than 75,000 miles on the vehicle.
It must have a clean title and have never been in a major accident.
It must not have ever been in a flood or have had any structural damage.
It can’t have any discrepancies in the registration, ownership records or title.
In addition to these strict requirements, every certified pre-owned Volkswagen is given a 112-point inspection in order to qualify. This thorough inspection includes things like checking the engine and transmission for solid performance, the brakes for safe and proper operation, the steering for any vibration or pulling, and the suspension for proper alignment and function.

Other inspection checks include the operation and proper function of all electronic components, safety items, warning lights, comfort features, mechanical operations, etc. Next, all fluids and filters are checked and/or changed, and the vehicle is inspected for any visual defects or damage. Finally it is road-tested for complete operational readiness. It’s as thorough an inspection as you can get.
