Requirements for Certification

Only an authorized Volvo dealer can certify a Volvo (like your friends at Giles Volvo Cars). Like most CPO programs, Certified by Volvo maintains strict requirements for used Volvo models to meet. After passing the standards set by Volvo for age, mileage and condition, the vehicle is then transferred to our technicians to conduct a thorough inspection covering more than 170 points. They’ll go over functions like the engine, suspension and steering, while also checking interior light bulbs and exterior panels, tires and brakes. You won’t have to worry about the quality of a model that passes this inspection — especially since every Certified by Volvo comes with a 5-Year/Unlimited-Mile Exclusionary Warranty.* Check out the list below for full benefits.
