The Benefits of Buying Certified Pre-Owned in Mount Pleasant

October 14th, 2022 by

If you’re in need of a reliable ride but have a tight budget to stick to, buying a brand-new vehicle isn’t likely the best option. Buying used offers plenty of perks, like lower upfront costs and a slower depreciation rate. But because you’re not the vehicle’s first owner, there’s a downside to consider as well.

Certified pre-owned cars are the perfect solution, offering a “like new” vehicle at an affordable price! Today, nearly every major automaker offers a CPO program, with their factory certified cars available at a dealership of the same brand. That means you’ll find an incredible selection of certified pre-owned Volkswagens here at Low Country Volkswagen!  

CPO cars have been rigorously inspected to make sure they meet the highest standards before they land on our lot. Often these vehicles have been well maintained, and are accident-free and low-mileage – and just a few years old! Every Volkswagen CPO vehicle also comes with a model-specific Limited Warranty.

Read on to learn more about the VW CPO program, then stop by your local Volkswagen dealership in Mount Pleasant for a test drive!

Volkswagen Model-Specific Limited Warranty Coverage

Reliability is top priority when choosing a new car. Every Volkswagen CPO comes with a model-specific limited warranty, so you can cruise with confidence! The warranty period begins as soon as the New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires or on the CPO vehicle’s sale date – whichever comes later.

Here’s what you need to know about your vehicle’s limited warranty:

  • Model years 2017 and older: 2-year or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first)
  • Model years 2018 and 2019: 1-year or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first)
  • Model years 2020 and newer: 2-year or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first)

Benefits Offered with your CPO:

Your purchase comes with plenty of perks, including the following:

24-Hour Roadside Assistance

Nothing provides peace of mind like two years of 24-hour roadside assistance! This includes:

  • Towing to the nearest licensed authorized VW dealership
  • Flat-tire changes and jump starts
  • Winching/extrication
  • Emergency repairs, fuel delivery, and door unlocking

CARFAX Vehicle History Report

Every certified pre-owned Volkswagen comes with a comprehensive CARFAX Vehicle History Report. This report provides helpful information about your vehicle, like its ownership and accident history, title concerns, vehicle registration, and more. To compile this report, CARFAX utilizes thousands of sources to obtain this vehicle information.

100+ Point Dealer Inspection

Each CPO vehicle has passed a 100+ point dealer inspection. Rest assured that Low Country Volkswagen would never sell a certified pre-owned vehicle that hasn’t undergone thorough testing. The inspection involves:

  • Checking the engine for starting issues
  • Assessing the transmission for performance malfunctions and noise
  • Testing brakes to ensure proper function and responsiveness
  • Performing steering tests for noise, effort, vibration, and pulling
  • Providing updates per recommended or required maintenance needs

If your certified pre-owned vehicle comes with the SiriusXM radio, you’ll enjoy access to over 150 channels with your 3-month Platinum Plan trial subscription. Use the SiriusXM App to listen to your favorite tunes and radio shows!
