Used vs. Certified Pre-Owned

Certified for your peace of mind

If you’re thinking about buying a used car, consider purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen. All Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagens are less than 7 years old, under 160,000 km and go through an intensive 112-Point-Inspection to ensure that your Volkswagen is both safe to drive and looks like new! Plus, all Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagens come with factory-backed warranty options, 24-hour Roadside Assistance and low financing rates. Achieve peace of mind with Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned. Browse our 112-Point-Inspected Certified Pre-Owned inventory here.

112 Point Inspection

To be considered a Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen, high standards must be met. All Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagens go through an intensive 112-Point-Inspection from one of our Factory Certified Technicians to ensure that your Volkswagen is both safe to drive and looks like new! For example, the 112-Point-Inspection ensures:

  • minimum 50% (5-6 mm) brake pad thickness (which is 3x more than the current safety standards)
  • minimum 50% (4/32) tire depth (which is 2x more than the current safety standards)
  • items that currently do not have to pass a safety test (engine and transmission performance, A/C, radio, speakers, clock, alarm system, sunroof, heated seats etc.) are inspected and fixed (if necessary)*

*This list is only a sample of the items examined during the 112-Point-Inspection.

Warranty Options

With Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned, there are two warranty options:

Volkswagen Assurance Program

Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagens are automatically eligible for the Volkswagen Assurance Program. This warranty covers the vehicle for the remainder of the new vehicle’s limited warranty and gives you complimentary roadside assistance for 6 months.

Volkswagen Assurance Premium Program

If the pre-owned vehicle you purchase is less than 5 years old and has less than 120,000 km, you can upgrade to the Assurance Premium Program and receive a 2-year/40,000 km (whichever occurs first) warranty. This warranty is added to the rest of the vehicle’s new vehicle limited warranty and includes 2 years of additional roadside assistance. The program covers any repair or service deemed necessary because of a broken or malfunctioning part covered by the warranty.

Roadside assistance is provided by Club Auto Roadside Service. Volkswagen’s 24-hour Roadside Assistance program offers:
