Certified Pre-Owned Volvo Vehicles Versus Traditional Used Volvo Cars

Are you looking at purchasing a used Volvo vehicle? But you are up against the decision of whether to buy a traditional used Volvo or a certified pre-owned Volvo vehicle. Now, you might be wondering, what does it mean to buy a certified pre-owned vehicle? Certified pre-owned vehicles are just another form of used vehicles except without as much risk as buying a traditionally used car.

Although you could probably go through the hassle of finding a used vehicle that is just as nice as a certified pre-owned vehicle, certified pre-owned vehicles are readily available and pre-inspected. You could find a high-quality used car but that will take time and effort and why go through all that when a certified pre-owned vehicle is already waiting for you.

What is a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle

Certified pre-owned vehicles are gently-used vehicles that are sold by new car dealerships. Generally, certified pre-owned vehicles have lower miles and a limited age and are thoroughly inspected and reconditioned if necessary. To be clear, certified pre-owned vehicles are not just any vehicle with a “certified” sticker slapped on the windshield. Instead, they are cars that are part of manufacturer-sponsored programs that should be taken seriously.

Benefits of Owning a Certified Pre-Owned Volvo Vehicle

When you purchase a certified pre-owned vehicle you are receiving more reassurance that the vehicle that you are buying is in good condition right off the bat. You also signing up for a vehicle that has only been gently used with low mileage and a recent model year. Most of the time, certified pre-owned vehicles are recycled lease returns that are only two or three years old with fewer than 36,000 miles racked up.

Typically, certified pre-owned cars come with a limited warranty whereas traditional used cars do not. Volvo is sure to keep its drivers protected with great warranty options such as their five-year, unlimited mile warranty or even their 100,000-mile warranty because they know their vehicles can survive the test.

When you buy a traditional used car, they typically haven’t been pre-inspected whereas with a certified pre-owned vehicle they go under several tests to ensure greatness. Through the Volvo Certified Pre-Owned program, all certified pre-owned vehicles have gone through at least 170 inspection points that hit all the major systems within your vehicle.

Certified pre-owned cars can sometimes even come with special deals and financing options. Many of our certified pre-owned vehicles come with low-interest financing. We know that the cost of a certified pre-owned vehicle is a little more than a traditional used car but with the help of low-interest financing, it effectively lowers the monthly payment making it easier to bite the higher asking price.

Volvo even offers its certified pre-owned customers Volvo Roadside Assistance anytime anywhere for a complimentary three-year service. That can save you time and money down the line and continue to keep your certified pre-owned Volvo car in good working shape.
