Volvo Certified Pre-Owned Program


Volvo’s certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty offers 5 years and unlimited miles of coverage from the car’s original sale date. Volvo also offers its Volvo Increased Protection plans for its certified pre-owned vehicles, and at the time of purchase, buyers can choose from options that extend the CPO warranty from between 6 and 10 years and either 100,000 or unlimited miles. Volvo’s CPO warranty is also fully transferable, includes no deductible, features roadside assistance and occasionally comes with special financing rates.

What We Like

No warranty deductible; unlimited mileage; fully transferable warranty; option to add additional coverage

What We Don’t

One year of additional coverage beyond the original 4-year/50,000-mile new-vehicle warranty is below average among Volvo’s luxury competitors

Program Specifics

Volvo’s CPO warranty offers an additional year onto the manufacturer’s basic warranty regardless of mileage, is fully transferable and comes with a few other perks.

Let’s start with length. Volvo’s current CPO warranty plan provides 5 years and unlimited miles of coverage from the car’s original sale date, but certain rivals cover CPO vehicles for up to 6 or 7 years. The fact that Volvo offers the option to extend its CPO warranty at an extra cost should be seen as a plus, as this would serve to bring its offering in line with more generous competitors.

As for the other benefits, Volvo’s warranty is fully transferable without a fee, which is more than you can say for most rival automakers. In fact, Lexus’ CPO warranty can’t be transferred at all. Volvo’s warranty also includes no deductible, which is an improvement over certain rivals who charge $50 or $100 per visit. Certified by Volvo buyers also get a Carfax vehicle history report with a buyback guarantee.

What’s the catch? Our only real gripe about Volvo’s certified pre-owned warranty is that in its basic form, the additional year of coverage it provides isn’t particularly generous. Also, it starts from the day the original owner purchased the car, not the day you bought it. This can make it hard to calculate exactly when your warranty will end. Still, by no means does Volvo’s CPO warranty shortchange buyers, thanks to its customizability and offering of other perks.

  1. The biggest deception with Volvo CPO program is that it can be fraud. I bought a CPO from Volvo dealer. The sale included CPO warranty certificate valid through 2020 and I checked validity as well by calling Volvo directly. However, the warranty was never finalized and when I needed to use the warranty after standard warranty expired, Volvo told me that the dealer never finalized the CPO warranty. I guess they never paid for it. So, Volvo CPO warranty is a SCAM. I have all the evidence, correspondences and original car listing including carfax data to prove. 

    • The warranty isn’t a scam. According to what you’ve said, you paid a dealer for a warranty that they didn’t give you. Contact Volvo customer service to make it right:
