Correct us if we are wrong, but shouldn't a warranty should give you worry free driving? Volkswagen believes this should be as long & complete as possible. Ours is exactly that....period.
The Long & not so short of it!
4-year/80,000 km* New vehicle warranty
5-year/100,000 km* Powertrain limited warranty.
12 months/20,000 km* Wear & tear items & adjustments
12-year/200,000 km* Limited warranty corrosion perforation.**
4 years/80,000 km* Roadside Assistance (click for details)
(Incl. trip interruption coverage)
* Whichever occurs first
**All warranty details (aka the fine print) HERE
When reviewing the (usually dreaded) "fine print" of our warranty, you will notice the only items listed in the "What's not covered" section are very black & white, and really pretty common sense. PLUS, besides a 1 year/20,000km adjustments period, there are NO other "Oh, But...." exceptions, within the 4 year/80,000km New Car Limited Warranty.
Bonus, we even cover "wear & tear" items, like brake pads for 1 year/20,000km (yes, really!!!)
Avoid surprises at the service counter by knowing all the details of a new car warranty, BEFORE, you commit to buy. Be aware of situations that show a new car warranty term, but in the fine print show less coverage for only certain components.
For example; a New Car Comprehensive Limited Warranty may show to be a 5 year/100,000 BUT the fine print shows......
certain electronics, nav system etc. is only 3 year/60,000
battery is only 2 year/40,000km
You owe it to yourself to ask for all the fine print, this is a large purchase decision!
While we're on the topic of ownership costs.......
Did you know a Volkswagen only requires service (even oil changes) every 15,000km or once per year? (yes, really!) Rather than the traditional oil change every 6000 or 8000 km PLUS scheduled maintenance in between, we literally only see you once a year, or every 15,000km!
Yes, of course we're sad not seeing you very often, since we love visitors, but we recognize how much time savings this offers you, and that's priceless!
