AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – For the third consecutive year, Volkswagen of America, Inc.’s Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Program has been named by IntelliChoice as “Best Non-luxury Certified Pre-Owned Program.” IntelliChoice is the leading source for automotive ownership cost and value analysis.

Volkswagen’s CPO program is noted for its comprehensive two-year, 24,000-mile Limited Warranty.

“This honor from IntelliChoice reflects the peace of mind that the VW CPO program gives our customers,” said Patrick McFall, general manager, Certified Pre-Owned & Corporate Sales, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “And, new for this year, the evaluation criteria included an analysis of used car ownership cost value, and Volkswagen's strong used car overall value combined with the comprehensive CPO warranty ensures that owning a VW CPO vehicle is cost-effective.”

The warranty on Volkswagen’s CPO vehicles covers the engine, engine management system, transmission, steering system, electrical system, suspension, differentials, audio and alarm systems, anti-lock braking system, heating and air conditioning safety system, and more.
