March 4th, 2020 by

Have you heard the term “certified pre-owned” before, but you’re not really sure what it means? You’re not the only one! At Sunrise Volkswagen serving Long Island, we often have to explain the difference between a used car and a certified pre-owned Volkswagen car. So, we thought we’d take today to explain the value of buying a certified pre-owned Volkswagen. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out and give us a call!

Volkswagen certified pre-owned cars versus used

With a regular used car, what you buy is what you get. If you purchase it from us, you can feel confident that you’re buying a safe, quality vehicle that has been recently serviced. Still, unless you’re willing to purchase a third-party extended warranty, that’s where the guarantee stops.

With a Volkswagen certified pre-owned car, on the other hand, your new-to-you vehicle comes with a big side of peace of mind. Each Volkswagen CPO vehicle has passed a rigorous 100+ point dealer inspection process, has a clean CARFAX® history report, and is fully up-to-date on all service and maintenance with genuine Volkswagen OEM parts.

What’s more, your Volkswagen CPO model comes with a real-deal Volkswagen manufacturer’s warranty. Each Model-Specific Limited Warranty that kicks in when the New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires, or on the sale date of the VW CPO vehicle, whichever comes later. Enjoy the security of:

  • A two-year / 24,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty on the model year 2017 and earlier gas, hybrid, and electric Volkswagen vehicles
  • A one-year / 12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty on the model year 2018 and newer Volkswagen cars
  • A two-year/unlimited mileage Comprehensive Limited Warranty on the model year 2016 and earlier Volkswagen TDI models
