I am presently looking for a late model S60R. How far out of my way should I go to make sure the vehicle is a CPO and how much does that warranty really cover? Thanks.

Also, if done properly, there is also 130 point checklist that the dealer must perform to be able to certify the car. This means stuff like tires, brake pads, rotors (if worn beyond a certain point) and anything that is broken must be replaced be for the car is sold. This plus the cost of the CPO warranty is why you will see at least a $1000 premium on a CPO car vs a non-CPO car. I would definately say the extra cost is justified.

yes, definitely get a cpo car..if you had to pay to get the car certified it would cost at least 2k retail

Thanks everyone for the input. I found a non-certified '05 R for $27,800 with 37K miles and a certified '05 with 20K miles for $30,900. It sounds like the certified one is definitely worth the extra money. Thanks everyone. I will hopefully be the proud new papa of an almost new S60R in the near future!

Re: (waccamatt)

Sounds like with the lower mileage on the CPO car, these cars are not too far apart, if similar equipment. <p>I would ask that the dealer provide you with the 130 point check off list, and who was responsible for the work. Clearly you will always get the "just bring it in if you have any problems" but if you ask for the list they may be a little mroe proactive.
