People buying used Volkswagen cars can have greater confidence in their roadworthiness in future, as the manufacturer seeks to "repatriate" old commercial vehicles, it has been claimed.

The German carmaker will be using the 1link Disposal Network internet platform to find out-of-contract fleet vehicles to undergo stringent checks before being fed back into the official dealer network, according to

Volkswagen Financial Services' general manager for remarketing Martin Woollam told the publication: "By ensuring that as many used vehicles as possible go through our approved used schemes, we are also helping to make sure that customers are provided with the best experience possible.

"It is something from which every party in the supply chain gains benefits."

Earlier this month, Volkswagen announced that used cars had contributed to the manufacturer, selling a total of 1.73 million vehicles in the first quarter of 2010.

This figure was a 24 per cent increase on the final quarter of 2009, Volkswagen confirmed.
