The Differences Between a Certified by Volvo Vehicle and a Used Automobile

Have you been to our dealership from Springfield, VA and been confused by the different designations for the pre-owned vehicles? Do you wonder what the difference between Certified by Volvo and a regular used automobile might be? If you have these questions, you are not alone. Many of our Woodbridge, VA customers have the same questions. The good news is that Fairfax Volvo Cars, located at 11050 Fairfax Boulevard in Fairfax, VA, has the answers to your questions. While all the used cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans on our lot are all high-quality, there are certainly differences.

The Certified by Volvo Difference

Are you are interested in a used Volvo XC60 or a Volvo XC90 that falls under the Certified by Volvo designation, but you have no idea what the means? A Certified by Volvo vehicle differs from a used vehicle in a few different ways. The Certified by Volvo car or SUV must be a Volvo and have fewer than 80,000-miles on the odometer. Unlike other used automobiles, a Certified by Volvo must go through an exhaustive 170-point inspection by a factory-trained, Volvo-certified technician. This technician goes through the all the components and systems of the Volvo to ensure it meets the highest of standards. A used Volvo S60 or Volvo XC40 that had over 80,000-mile on it would go through an inspection, but it would not need to meet the Certified by Volvo standards. This is the same for any other brand of vehicle.

How Used Vehicles Differ

Fairfax Volvo Cars aims to provide our Washington DC customers with high-end and popular used vehicles like the Honda CR-V, the Honda Accord, and the Honda Civic. These used automobiles go through their own process to be deemed worthy to be sold on our lot. Some of them are bought or traded in by customers and others are purchased from folks in Herndon, VA who were looking to sell their vehicle. We are often on the lookout for fan-favorites, like the Volkswagen Passat or the Volkswagen Jetta. Our used inventory comes from a variety of brands like BMW, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, and Toyota.
