What is the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Warranty?

2019 Volkswagen Passat


Are you hoping to upgrade your commute from Bellaire to Kalkaska? If so, it can be challenging to decide between buying new or used. Luckily, the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned program is here to fill the gap. VW CPO models are nearly new and in exceptional condition. However, CPO models are technically used, so they can be scored at a discounted price. 

Another benefit of opting for a certified Volkswagen is the Volkswagen CPO warranty. The Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned warranty will vary by model year and powertrain, but you can expect great protection on the Lake City streets for years to come. Learn more about the advantages of buying a VW CPO model below!

VW CPO Coverage Guide

Driving a Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned will satisfy your desire for advanced safety features, high-end amenities, and affordable pricing all in one. Depending on the model year you select, you can expect the following Volkswagen CPO warranty coverage:

  • Model year 2020 or later: Automatic coverage through a comprehensive limited warranty* for one year or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • Model year 2018 and 2019: For gas, hybrid, or electric vehicles during this period, you’ll receive comprehensive limited warranty coverage for one year or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • Model year 2017 and earlier: TDI vehicles have comprehensive limited warranty coverage for at least 2 years, with no mileage limit.

How Does the Volkswagen Factory Warranty Affect My CPO Coverage?

The Volkswagen Factory Warranty offers a long duration and can be transferred to certified Volkswagen models. This means that you can secure new-car benefits through your Volkswagen CPO warranty. New Volkswagen vehicles receive:

  • 4 years or 50,000 miles of warranty coverage, whichever comes first
  • 2 years or 20,000 miles of Carefree Maintenance, whichever comes first

To sweeten the deal, your Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Warranty only starts after your initial VW warranty coverage ends or on the date of sale, whichever comes later. If you purchase a one-year-old certified Volkswagen, you can secure comprehensive warranty coverage for the next several years!

What Else is Included with the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Program?

Formidable warranty coverage and affordable prices aren’t the only advantages that come with buying a CPO VW. In fact, there is a range of perks that come with your VW CPO investment: 

  • Peace of mind: Each prospective VW model must pass a rigorous 100+ point vehicle inspection in order to receive the designation of “certified pre-owned.” 
  • CARFAX® vehicle history report™: Your purchase comes with the assurance that only a thorough vehicle history report can provide.***
  • Volkswagen Roadside Assistance coverage: Receive two years of 24-hour roadside assistance coverage should the unexpected occur.****
  • SiriusXM® radio: Enjoy a complimentary 3-month all-access trial subscription for all your infotainment favorites.*****
