New car prices have hit record highs in recent years. Because of this, you might want to consider buying a used car rather than a new one the next time you're in the market for a vehicle. However, you shouldn't buy just any used car. Instead, you should make it a point to purchase a certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicle. Why? Well, there are many different reasons to consider when investing in a certified pre-owned Volkswagen versus a used car that hasn't been certified by a trusted Volkswagen dealership. Check out why you should buy certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicles below.
Because certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicles are carefully inspected, serviced, and repaired based on what a dealer finds, you shouldn't be concerned about one breaking down on you anytime soon. But just in case you ever experience any issues with a certified pre-owned car, you'll often get 24-hour roadside assistance included with your pre-owned vehicle purchase.
This 24-hour roadside assistance perk will last for up to two years. It’ll give you access to the following:
You’ll also be able to use 24-hour roadside assistance to have your certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicle towed to any licensed or authorized Volkswagen dealership. This service will be available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year.
If you decide to buy a used vehicle from a private seller, a used car lot or even certain auto dealerships, the vehicle you’re looking at might not always be in the best condition. This kind of used car may not have been subjected to a lengthy inspection to ensure that it's in the best possible running condition.
Certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicles are different. Before they're put up for sale, they go through a 100+ point dealer inspection. During this inspection, a Volkswagen dealer will test the car's engine, transmission, brakes, steering, etc.
If there are any issues with a vehicle, a dealer will perform the proper maintenance and replace the necessary parts to get it running like new again. A dealer will also correct any problems found with genuine Volkswagen parts.
When you take ownership of a certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicle, you won't have to worry about a thing thanks to this lengthy inspection process. This inspection process gives you complete peace of mind from the moment you first drive a certified pre-owned vehicle off a dealer's lot.
Before purchasing a used car, you should always make it your mission to find out as much as you can about its history. The last thing you want to do is spend your hard-earned money on a vehicle that has been involved in accidents in the past or experienced any serious issues.
To put your mind at ease, you will receive a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report with a certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicle. This report will give you useful information about the car that you're thinking about buying. You'll be able to answer critical vehicle questions and learn the following:
By reading through a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report, you'll be able to arm yourself with all the information that you'll need to make a final decision about buying a used vehicle. You'll sleep better at night when you know your car's history after purchasing it and parking it in your driveway.
