Volkswagen CPO Buying Guide

  Volkswagen CPO Buying Guide Volkswagen’s certified pre-owned program is known as WorldAuto, so don’t be surprised when that name pops up while you’re shopping for a CPO Volkswagen Beetle convertible this summer. Other than having a different name, WorldAuto is very similar to other certified pre-owned programs out there. Buying a CPO VW lets you get into a late-model Volkswagen that has been manufacturer inspected and carries a manufacturer warranty. Basically, you get many of the benefits of buying a new car at a much lower price. Which Used VW Vehicles Are Eligible? The vehicles must be no older than six model years, and the odometer has to have fewer than 75,000 miles on it. Inspection Process Volkswagen uses a 112-point inspection process, which is on the lower end, even among non-luxury brands. The dealership starts by checking the CARFAX report and making sure there’s no structural or flood damage. Any vehicles with that kind of serious damage are eliminated from the CPO program immediately. Once the car has passed the basic requirements, it will be road-tested and inspected – inside, outside, and under the hood. Anything that doesn’t meet Volkswagen’s standards will be repaired before offering it as a CPO vehicle. Warranty WorldAuto includes a 2-year/24,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty with every pre-owned vehicle.

On this episode of Ignition, sponsored by Tire Rack, Carlos Lago tests the new 2015 Volkswagen Golf R. With nearly 300 hp, all-wheel drive, and, for the first time, completely defeatable stability control, will this upscale and refined hot hatch deliver the driving experience we look for?

The 6 - year / 72 , 000 - mile bumper-to-bumper warranty will now be offered on the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle, Golf, Jetta, and Passat ranges. Called the People First Warranty , the coverage is fully transferable within the warranty period.

Earlier this year, Volkswagen introduced a longer, more comprehensive warranty on the new Atlas and Tiguan. Now, it's spreading the love to more models in the 2018 lineup. The 6-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty will now be offered on the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle, Golf, Jetta, and Passat ranges.

Called the People First Warranty, the coverage is fully transferable within the warranty period. So no matter how many times the vehicle changes hands in those six years, the warranty goes with it. Just as it does for Atlas and Tiguan, the warranty covers all powertrain and drivetrain components, including the engine, transmission, and 4Motion all-wheel drive system, when equipped. The new warranty replaces the 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty Volkswagen previously offered.

MINI CPO Buying Guide

  MINI CPO Buying Guide Mini is a brand that does things differently, but like nearly all automakers, it offers a certified pre-owned program for those looking for the peace of mind of an extended warranty. Here’s what you need to know about Mini’s CPO program. Which Used Mini Vehicles Are Eligible? Any Mini that’s less than five years old and has less than 60,000 miles is eligible for the CPO program. That means the plucky Mini Cooper hardtop, and even most model years of the discontinued Mini Coupe and Roadster. Inspection Process Mini has an inspection process that it calls “rigorous,” and it’s hard to argue. The first steps include verifying mileage, background, and the maintenance history of the vehicle. From there, Mini technicians inspect the tire wear, the condition of the wheels and brakes, and the condition of the body panels and suspension components. The engine and its many subsystems are inspected, after which the car is taken out for a road test to ensure it drives and handles as a typical Mini should. The technician, service manager, and Mini CPO manager all must sign off final approval. Warranty Mini has a unique two-tier warranty system. The standard warranty is a two-year/50,000 bumper-to-bumper warranty that kicks in with the expiration of the original four-year/50,000-mile warranty. That yields a total six-year/100,000-mile warranty for the average CPO Mini. For newer models with more than 300 miles, but less than 36,001 miles, Mini offers the CPO 575 program.

VW is expanding its six - year , 72 , 000 - mile warranties to cover nearly every new 2018 Volkswagen sold. It originally started offering the warranties to Atlas and Tiguan buyers in order to earn back trust after Dieselgate, the emissions scandal that's cost the company an estimated billion.

The People First Warranty can be had on both the Beetle and Beetle Convertible, the standard Golf, Golf GTI, Golf R, Golf SportWagon, and Golf Alltrack, the Passat, and the Jetta. That leaves only the e-Golf, CC, and recycled last-gen Tiguan Limited un-covered by the new warranty, though the 2018 versions of those cars have yet to be announced.

Given Volkswagen's wide-reaching diesel scandal, the automaker isgoing to need to work harder thanever to get customers back in dealer show rooms. Offering a better warranty on almost every model it sells could go a long way in restoring some of the trust it has lost.

Tesla CPO Buying Guide .
Tesla likes to do everything a little differently. They don’t have dealerships. They don’t have internal combustion engines. They don’t really have door handles (or, at least they don’t until they automatically pop out of the side of the car). The Tesla certified pre-owned program is no different. For instance, each vehicle undergoes a 214-point, seven-hour inspection, and qualifying vehicles get free charging at Tesla’s nationwide network of Superchargers. Read on to learn more about CPO Teslas. Which Used Tesla Vehicles Are Eligible? The Tesla certified pre-owned vehicle limited warranty covers pre-owned vehicles sold by Tesla in the Tesla North America Warranty Region, which comprises all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and all 13 provinces and territories of Canada. All variants in the Model S family – that’s Tesla’s all-electric luxury sedan – are included. The used inventory on Tesla’s website shows Model S cars available in a range of battery size and drivetrain configurations. The batteries range from 60 to 90 kilowatt-hours, and drivetrain configurations include rear- and all-wheel drive. Tesla even offers their performance-oriented models. Tesla’s battery-powered Model X crossover SUV, which went on sale in 2015, is not yet included in the manufacturer’s used vehicle program. Inspection Process Like other certified pre-owned vehicle programs, the used vehicles Tesla validates receive a full inspection before they’re deemed eligible for resale.
