Volvo Adds CarProof to Certified Pre-Owned Program


TORONTO, ON (April 19, 2011) - Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. has added CarProof vehicle history reports to its Certified Pre-Owned Program. Before a vehicle can be considered Certified under the Volvo CPO Program, a 130+ point inspection is used to ensure that the vehicle meets detailed eligibility requirements as outlined by Volvo Cars of Canada Corp.


On April 1, CarProof reports became a part of Volvo Cars of Canada Corp's extensive inspection process helping to uncover detailed vehicle history information that might otherwise remain unknown. CarProof adds additional credibility to an already thorough and comprehensive mechanical and cosmetic evaluation.

"CarProof is pleased to be recognized as a key ingredient in the Volvo CPO Program and we look forward to working alongside Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. and its many reputable retailers," stated Marty Meadows, CarProof Vice-President of Strategic Accounts and Business Development. "Not only is CarProof a value-add in the certified arena, our reports provide transparency to the remarketing process for all used vehicle transactions. We look forward to building on our relationships with our current Volvo dealers and forging out new ones with those we have not had the pleasure to work with previously, providing unsurpassed dealer support throughout."


Ian Joyce, VP of Sales, Volvo Cars of Canada Corp. says, "Volvo Cars of Canada is committed to providing an exceptional ownership experience for all Volvo owners, and our new CPO program provides our Certified Pre-Owned owners with vehicles that pass a rigorous inspection and reconditioning regiment that includes a CarProof report for each Certified Pre-Owned Volvo. Volvo's newly structured inspection and certification process is complemented by a 6 year/160k km warranty and roadside assistance. The Certified Comprehensive Inspection Report combined with a CarProof report further establishes peace-of-mind and provides the end consumer with greater confidence in the purchase, in the dealership and in the Volvo brand."
