What Does Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover

When purchasing a used vehicle, not only do you have to find the right one at the right price, but you also have to wonder about the condition of the vehicle and what it’s been through with previous owners. When you buy privately, there are no guarantees. That is why we recommend buying your used Volkswagen from a certified Volkswagen dealer, like right here at Findlay Volkswagen, so that your Certified Pre-Owned VW comes with warranty coverage. So, what does the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned warranty cover?


All Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are passed along to you with a 2-year or 24,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. This warranty adds peace of mind to you as the buyer, and that’s a big deal. Here’s what you can expect to be covered:

  • pre-owned volkswagen coverageengine
  • steering
  • axles (front/rear)
  • manual transmission, should your vehicle have it equipped
  • anti-lock braking
  • electrical systems
  • electrical power supply
  • heat and A/C
  • torque converter
  • differential
  • material or manufacturer defects outside your control

So, whether you reach the 2-year mark or 24,000-mile mark first, your vehicle will be covered up until one of those points in time. But that doesn’t mean you should expect anything to go wrong. Before we even let you drive away, every used vehicle goes through a thorough 112-point inspection to check or repair things like the engine, transmission, brakes, steering or other maintenance needs.

What is Quality Pre-Owned?

While researching our WorldAuto Certified Pre-Owned warranties, you may come across the term Quality Pre-Owned. What is it? Quality Pre-Owned refers to those brands that are not Volkswagen, and we sell those too from time to time. They may not be Volkswagen, but they are still expected to meet the same standards through our 112-point inspection, and each one is covered by a 1-year or 12,000-mile warranty.
