Why Buy a Used Volvo?

Why Choose a Certified Pre-Owned?

Volvo has an outstanding Certified Pre-Owned program, which has allowed it to win the Best CPO Award from IntelliChoice.com five years in a row. Volvo Certified Pre-Owned cars go through a 130-point vehicle inspection, ensuring the used Volvo cars maintain top Volvo quality. Strict eligibility rules make sure vehicles are no more than 6 years old, have a clean CARFAX, and have less than 80,000 miles.

These certified cars come with an enhanced warranty period, and offer many benefits on top of the 7-year/100,000 miles CPO warranty (additional coverage's available include an 8-year/100,000 miles and 8-year/125,000 miles warranty). Check out the top reasons for owning a certified Volvo:
  • No deductible on CPO warranty visits
  • Volvo On Call Roadside Assistance
  • CARFAX Buyback Guarantee
  • Volvo Genuine Service with factory trained technicians
Volvo also has available Protection Plus+ coverage. Protection Plus+ covers Factory Scheduled Maintenance for 7 years or 100,000 miles, lowering your total cost of ownership.

Tips for Buying Used
If you are ready to buy your next car, we have some helpful tips for you. Buying a used car calls for a different process than buying a new car. There are several aspects to research and consider before making your final purchase.
  • How much can you afford? It's important to factor in additional costs such as tax and title costs. Also, consider the potential costs of an extended warranty.
  • Consider the purchase of a CPO Volvo. CPO cars have excellent vehicle conditions, less deprecation, and offer peace of mind.
  • Learn about CPO program. CPO programs offer benefits like warranties, maintenance, service.
  • Check safety ratings of the car. Research IIHS and NHTSA scores for vehicles with leading safety.
  • Check car insurance prices. Insurance prices vary by model and may be a factor in ownership cost.
  • Once you find a potential car, research the specific vehicle history. Many dealerships will provide you a CARFAX report to examine past history.
  • Check the warranty. Does the car have any remaining new vehicle warranty?
  • Perform a thorough walk around and test drive. Inspect the vehicle for damages and evaluate ride quality.
