What Is VW Certified?

VW Certified is the process that used vehicles go through to earn the CPO designation. Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen models must be of a recent model year with low mileage on the odometer. CPO vehicles must also have a clean title and come with a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report so you know exactly what maintenance your vehicle has received.


What Does VW Certified Cover?

When you buy a Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen at Smith Volkswagen you'll be able to enjoy a variety of perks, including:

  • 24-hour roadside assistance
  • CARFAX® Vehicle History Report
  • 100+ point dealer inspection
  • 3-month SiriusXM® Platinum Plan Trial Subscription

What Is the Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen Warranty?

Every Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen model comes with a Model-Specific Limited Warranty. This warranty period begins when the New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires or on the sale date of the CPO VW, whichever occurs later. The warranties can include:

  • 2-year/24,000-mile warranty on 2017 and newer vehicles
  • 1-year/12,000-mile warranty on 2018 and 2019 models
  • 2-year/24,000-mile warranty on 2020 and newer vehicles

What Is the Certified Pre-Owned VW Inspection Before I Buy?

Every Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen for sale on our lot will undergo a 100+ point dealer inspection to ensure it performs to the standards of the CPO badge. This ensures you can enjoy complete peace of mind when you finance a CPO car or SUV from our dealership.
