Advantages of Certified Pre-Owned VWs

January 9th, 2018 by

If you want a nearly new car and limited risk, a certified pre-owned Volkswagen may be right for you. To be certified, the VW needs to meet specific age and mileage requirements and pass a rigorous inspection, which will earn it a limited warranty backed by VW.

Here at Speedcraft Volkswagen in Wakefield, drivers who buy certified pre-owned VWs tell us that peace of mind is a major selling point.

Typically, certified vehicles are only two or three years old with fewer than 36,000 miles, so they’re gently used, well maintained and have no major collisions in their history. The warranty is another huge attraction, says U.S. News and World Report. “The warranties offer buyers a high degree of certainty about their total cost of ownership during the years that the car is covered, knowing that unexpected repair costs won’t jump up and bite them.”
