You should shop certified VW cars for sale at Jim Ellis Volkswagen in Atlanta, GA. Why? We have one of the largest arrays of certified pre-owned VW vehicles in the area. So, go ahead and shop all used cars with us because we know you won't be disappointed.

What is Certified Pre-owned?

Our Volkswagen certified pre-owned inventory in Atlanta, GA, is slightly different from our used inventory. Have you ever heard the expression that all squares are rectangles but not every rectangle is a square? The same kind of logic applies to certified pre-owned cars. All certified Volkswagen cars and SUVs for sale are used, but not all used cars are certified pre-owned.

How does that work? Well, a certified pre-owned vehicle, in general, must pass a more rigorous inspection from factory-trained mechanics than a used vehicle. They've also often been refurbished and include an extended warranty. Finally, dealers can only sell a certified pre-owned vehicle that is the same make as their dealership. So, Jim Ellis Volkswagen can't certify vehicles from other brands like Nissan; they can only certify Volkswagen vehicles.

What Does It Mean To Be Certified by Volkswagen?

Now, let's get into the specifics of what it means to be certified by Volkswagen. All certified VW cars for sale must pass a 112-point inspection designed by the factory. So, when you get your certified pre-owned VW Tiguan for sale, you know it's been combed over with the finest brush to ensure it's in top shape when it reaches you.

Each car in our VW certified pre-owned inventory in Atlanta, GA, also comes with two years of 24-hour Volkswagen Roadside Assistance Coverage and a complimentary CARFAX report. Every certified pre-owned vehicle is also covered by a Model-Specific Limited Warranty that begins when the New Vehicle Warranty expires or whenever you get your certified pre-owned car. So, if you're looking to lease with our used Atlas lease specials, you'll have peace of mind knowing you are covered in almost any event.

Pros of Buying Certified Pre-owned

There is a lot to love about the process of buying certified pre-owned. Even after you've had your certified pre-owned car for a while, it keeps on giving. It's understandable if you would want to buy new Jetta cars in Atlanta, GA, but look at some of the pros that come with buying certified VW cars for sale before you make your final decision.

  1. Inspection. That 112-point inspection we mentioned is more than just a once-over. It is a rigorous and intensive investigation into the heart and soul of the car. Every bell, whistle, nut, and bolt needs to be in place and working properly before it has officially passed inspection. Doesn't that make you feel a lot better about buying certified pre-owned?

  2. Financing. You'll find that certified pre-owned vehicles may get better financing rates and favorable outlooks and treatment from banks.

  3. Age. While certified pre-owned cars are still used, they are relatively newer and have fewer miles than used cars on average. They usually also have a verifiable history of regular maintenance.

  4. Support. Certified pre-owned vehicles are all backed by the manufacturer itself. When you get a used vehicle, you're often limited to the dealer where you bought your car for service. However, with the manufacturer-backing that comes with certified pre-owned cars, you can get service at any convenient location of the same manufacturer.
