Audi CPO Buying Guide

  Audi CPO Buying Guide Audi certified pre-owned vehicles must meet higher standards than non-certified used cars. That’s why Audi’s program entails a thorough 300+ Point Inspection and Certification process. The dealership selling the car will check components from headlights to the engine to the vehicle’s electrical and safety systems. Audi requires that the vehicle have only one previous owner. That owner must be able to show a clean title without history of an accident. Warranty Audi’s Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty becomes effective when the Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires. The automaker’s warranty for certified pre-owned models provides coverage for two years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Coverage is limited to the first 100,000 miles or six years on the vehicle’s odometer. Customers must pay an $85 deductible per dealer visit. Note that the CPO warranty is not an extension of the original four-year/50,000-mile Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Combined, the factory-backed warranties may provide coverage for up to six years or 100,000 miles, depending on the time elapsed and miles driven when the certified pre-owned warranty takes effect. Extras Certified pre-owned Audi buyers will also receive the balance of any Audi Care Pre-Paid Scheduled Maintenance, as well as the remainder of the vehicle’s 12-year Limited Warranty against Corrosion Perforation, regardless of mileage.

Earlier this year, Volkswagen introduced a longer, more comprehensive warranty on the new Atlas and Tiguan. Now, it's spreading the love to more models in the 2018 lineup. The 6-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty will now be offered on the 2018 Volkswagen Beetle, Golf, Jetta, and Passat ranges.

Called the People First Warranty, the coverage is fully transferable within the warranty period. So no matter how many times the vehicle changes hands in those six years, the warranty goes with it. Just as it does for Atlas and Tiguan, the warranty covers all powertrain and drivetrain components, including the engine, transmission, and 4Motion all-wheel drive system, when equipped. The new warranty replaces the 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty Volkswagen previously offered.

Fiat CPO Buying Guide

  Fiat CPO Buying Guide Fiat has its own certified pre-owned program, which is independent of the CPO programs of FCA’s other brands: Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram. It is known as the Fiat Certified Pre-Driven Program (CPD). Any Fiat vehicle that is less than six years old is eligible for the program. Fiat doesn’t specify a maximum number of miles that would disqualify a car from certification. Based on this information, all Fiat models in our rankings would qualify. Inspection Process Fiat leaves out important details regarding its certified pre-owned (pre-driven) program. The automaker does not provide online access to an inspection-point checklist. Fiat claims that vehicles are “100% tested” and receive “a demanding inspection and reconditioning process” using authentic Mopar parts. Fiat does include general qualification standards, including mechanical standards, maintenance standards, appearance standards, and detail standards, when considering a vehicle for certification. Buyers will receive ownership materials, including documents of a clear title, service records, a CARFAX vehicle history report, and a one-year transferable CARFAX Buyback Guarantee agreement. Warranty All Fiat CPO (CPD) vehicles come with a six-year/80,000-mile (whichever comes first) comprehensive limited warranty. The warranty covers most major powertrain and assembly components, which includes the engine, transmission, and driveline. However, Fiat charges a $150 deductible for covered repairs and replacements.

VW is expanding its six - year , 72 , 000 - mile warranties to cover nearly every new 2018 Volkswagen sold. It originally started offering the warranties to Atlas and Tiguan buyers in order to earn back trust after Dieselgate, the emissions scandal that's cost the company an estimated billion.

The People First Warranty can be had on both the Beetle and Beetle Convertible, the standard Golf, Golf GTI, Golf R, Golf SportWagon, and Golf Alltrack, the Passat, and the Jetta. That leaves only the e-Golf, CC, and recycled last-gen Tiguan Limited un-covered by the new warranty, though the 2018 versions of those cars have yet to be announced.

Given Volkswagen's wide-reaching diesel scandal, the automaker isgoing to need to work harder thanever to get customers back in dealer show rooms. Offering a better warranty on almost every model it sells could go a long way in restoring some of the trust it has lost.
