What is a Used Vehicle?

Our selection of standard used vehicles are, as the name suggests, a collection of vehicles that have been driven by previous owners. Our selection of pre-owned models provides a variety of models from popular automakers of all types, and vary in their price based on aspects like mileage and model year.

What is a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

One of the first things you may notice is that certified pre-owned vehicles tend to be more expensive than standard used vehicles, and there's a good reason for that. To earn the "certified" designation, a used vehicle must first pass a series of stringent tests and checks to ensure the utmost quality and reliability; we have our own system to ensure exceptional quality here at Perrysburg Auto Mall. Additionally, certified pre-owned vehicles also come with a warranty to provide additional value and peace of mind for your vehicle purchase.

The Differences between the Buick, GMC, Volkswagen, and Volvo Certified Pre-Owned Process

At our dealership, you'll find certified pre-owned models from Buick, GMC, Volkswagen, and Volvo. Each of these automakers has a difference process for making their used vehicles earn the "certified" designation. Each has a different method of testing and which aspects are tested, as well as different warrantees offered for each vehicle make. Take your time exploring the certified models and discover which one best suits your specific needs on the road.
