What is the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Warranty?

VW hatchback blue banner

If you’re considering a CPO VW vehicle for your drives around Arlington and Washington DC, then you’ve almost certainly wondered about what’s included with the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Warranty! Coverage varies depending on your model year and powertrain, but we’ve broken down everything you need to know, below.

VW CPO Coverage Guide

  • If your CPO VW was made in the model year 2018 or later, you’ll automatically be covered by a comprehensive limited warranty* that lasts for at least one year or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • TDI vehicles made before 2016 enjoy comprehensive limited warranty coverage for at least 2 years, with no mileage limit.
  • For gas, hybrid, or electric vehicles made in model year 2017 or earlier, comprehensive limited warranty coverage endures for at least two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.

How Does the Volkswagen Factory Warranty Affect My CPO Coverage?

If you’re a careful reader, you noticed that each of the above descriptions includes the words “at least.” That’s because the Volkswagen Factory Warranty is exceptionally long-lasting, and even more importantly, it’s fully transferable! That means it continues to protect most certified pre-owned Volkswagen vehicles for years after you drive off the lot.

  • New vehicles include 6-years or 72,000 miles of Limited Warranty Coverage**, 7 years or 100,000 miles of Limited Corrosion and Perforation protection, and 5 years or 60,000 miles of powertrain coverage.

Your Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Warranty only starts after your initial Volkswagen warranty coverage has expired, or on the date of your vehicle’s sale, whichever comes later! This is huge: It means that drivers who purchase a one-year-old CPO Volkswagen could enjoy comprehensive warranty coverage for up to six years!

What Else is Included with the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Program?

To summarize: Most Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned vehicles retain their new vehicle limited warranty coverage, and offer a comprehensive limited warranty which kicks in after the original protection expires.

However, these aren’t the only benefits you’ll enjoy with the excellent VW CPO Program. Here’s what else you can expect:

  • All CPO VW vehicles must pass a 112-point vehicle inspection, designed by the factory to ensure lasting quality.
  • All CPO VW vehicles also include a CARFAX® vehicle history report™, so you can be sure that it’s performing as its makers intended.***
  • Two years of 24-hour Volkswagen Roadside Assistance coverage.****
  • A complimentary 3-Month All-Access Trial Subscription to SiriusXM® radio.*****
