Certified by Volvo Frequently Asked Questions

At Sandberg Volvo Cars in Lynnwood, we know that many discerning car shoppers in the Seattle-Tacoma area aren't looking for something brand new. We also know that buying used doesn't have to mean settling for less. Certified by Volvo models are an excellent way for drivers to enjoy the luxury, amenities, and performance of a late-model-year low-mileage Volvo for less. Learn more about the Volvo CPO program with a few of our Frequently Asked Questions.

What is Certified by Volvo?

Certified by Volvo models are the best of the best in our pre-owned inventory. Sedans, wagons, and SUVs that earn this privileged designation meet or exceed a very stringent set of standards. And as a result, they receive exclusive warranty backing from Volvo as well as other added benefits.

What Qualifies a Volvo for Certification?

A Volvo vehicle must be from a recent model year and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer to be considered. These restrictions ensure that Certified by Volvo models can offer a similar experience to brand-new models for a lower investment.

Next, the vehicle's history report is examined for odometer discrepancies, frame damage, and other structural problems. If the report is clear, the model undergoes a comprehensive 170-point examination by expert Volvo-trained technicians, as well as a road test to ensure it delivers a compelling and engaging driving experience.
