  2. Pre-Owned Certification - Is It Worth It?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I'm looking at purchasing a 2010 Passat with 41,000 miles on it from a VW dealer. Its certified. I haven't bought a car in over 10 years (still driving my 2002 Passat I purchased new.) Being a skeptic I'm wondering if the certification is as great as the salesman claims. What do you guys think?

  12. Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Howdy all. Buying question on behalf of a buddy. He is looking to buy a late model B5.5 ('04 or '05). A Seattle dealer told him they didn't certify 2005 Passats. Any reason for this or does this make any sense? Also, any good recommendations on Seattle-area Volkswagen dealers would be appreciated.
