Drivers who desire the utmost pre-owned quality and peace of mind look to Volvo certified pre-owned. What is it? A benefit-filled program that offers you luxurious qualities, confidence-inspiring safety, and powerful eco-friendly performance at a great price. But more importantly, it offers you all this with a quality guarantee that will have you feeling like you're behind the wheel of a factory-fresh vehicle.

At DARCARS Volvo Cars, our certified pre-owned inventory adds the benefit of a comprehensive selection. Read on to learn more.

How Does the Volvo Certified Pre-Owned Program Work?

It starts with a "normal" used Volvo vehicle. Whether it's a used Volvo XC40 or a used Volvo XC60, the process will begin with strict eligibility standards.

The model up for certification must have less than 80,000 miles logged. We confirm this with a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ and a search through our comprehensive databases. We also use this information to guarantee that the vehicle has a clean title; anything else will disqualify the vehicle.

To guarantee that the vehicle is a stand-out example of used-car quality, it faces a 170-point inspection by our certified technicians. If the vehicle passes this inspection at our service center in Rockville, MD, it will be given a road test and reconditioned with genuine Volvo parts where necessary. Once this thorough process is complete, the pre-owned Volvo can become a certified pre-owned Volvo.

Here's a look at the manufacturer-provided checklist for this meticulous inspection.

Volvo Certified Pre-Owned Checklist

While there are too many points to list, critical powertrain components include:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Steering
  • Suspension

Key exterior areas that the Volvo certified pre-owned inspection covers include:

  • Window glass
  • Body panels
  • Bumpers
  • Grilles
  • Lights
  • Vehicle frame

The following interior components and more are covered to ensure a first-rate luxury experience:

  • Carpeting
  • Trim panels
  • Seats

But, an essential part of this inspection is poring over the multitude of safety features, including:

  • Brakes
  • Seat belts
  • Airbags
  • Verification of driver assistance functions (i.e., blind-spot monitor, lane-departure warning, etc.)

Even the tire tread is checked in over 12 separate locations. When a pre-owned Volvo vehicle passes this inspection and becomes a Volvo certified pre-owned vehicle, you can be confident that it will be in like-new condition
