The Process of Certifying a Pre-Owned Vehicle

Knight Vehicles

With so many used cars available, it’s safer to trust a pre-owned vehicle than buying a vehicle that isn’t backed by the trusted process of certification backed by the manufacturer. Volkswagen has established a thorough process for Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, and our service center is staffed by expert technicians that ensure every vehicle is approved for sale to offer you used vehicles you can count on at an affordable price.

Qualifications for the Certified Pre-Owned Process

Not every used vehicle falls under the Certified Pre-Owned category, and that’s because it must go through a rigorous inspection so that we can confidently offer you the benefits of purchasing a used vehicle. A certified service technician performs a 112-point inspection, including a test drive and CarProof history report. Mechanical, electrical, safety, and equipment inspections are performed as well as an evaluation of interior and exterior condition and integrity of bodywork and glass quality. When a vehicle that’s 7 years or fewer passes this thorough process, the vehicle is then certified in peak condition for resale through the CPO program.
