May 27th, 2021 by

If a new Volkswagen model is still beyond reach, take advantage of the Volkswagen CPO program instead. This opens doors to fully certified, lightly used Volkswagen models which could fit right within your price point. Continue reading to learn more. 

What is the Volkswagen CPO Program? 

CPO Defined

CPO stands for Certified Pre-Owned and describes a used car that has gone through significant testing to ensure that everything operates at or above the car manufacturer’s standards. Purchasing a CPO offers a number of benefits which include: 

  • a better price point than brand new models
  • greater peace of mind when buying used
  • a lower depreciation rate
  • an extended warranty


This makes CPOs a popular choice for those looking for a more affordable car without having to question the quality or previous maintenance of the car. 

Volkswagen CPO Standards

To qualify as a Volkswagen CPO, a car must undergo a comprehensive 100+ Point Dealer Inspection. In this inspection, a Volkswagen technician will check everything including the engine, transmission, brakes, steering, and safety features. If anything operates at less than optimum performance, repairs will be made using certified Volkswagen parts. No shortcuts will be taken to ensure the pre-owned car reflects the quality that Volkswagen is known for. 

Comprehensive Limited Warranty

To show our confidence in the quality and performance of our CPOs, a Comprehensive Limited Warranty is applied to all CPO purchases. Volkswagen models made prior to 2018 will be covered with a 2-year/24,000-mile warranty. Model years between 2018 and 2019 will receive a 1-year/12,000-mile warranty. Volkswagens made in 2020 or beyond are given a 2-year/24,000-mile warranty as well. 

Additional Perks

Along with the limited warranty, Volkswagen CPOs come with two years of roadside assistance in the event that you need to be towed to a licenced Volkswagen dealership, replace a flat tire, unlock a car door, or jumpstart a dead battery.
