Volkswagen is putting car owners first with their unmatched The People First Warranty. Drivers of new Volkswagens enjoy a New Vehicle Limited Warranty of 6 years/72,000 Miles (whichever occurs first). That’s basic warranty coverage we haven’t seen before. And it gets better. If you are purchasing a used model that is within the warranty period, Volkswagen will transfer the vehicle’s warranty to you at no cost to the seller. You are probably thinking it’s too good to be true, but it’s not. Keep reading and see why Volkswagen’s The People First Warranty is America’s best car warranty.
The New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers your new Volkswagen from bumper to bumper.
Taking a look under the hood, this manufacturer warranty also includes a powertrain warranty that will cover your vehicle’s powertrain components.
Also included is the coverage of repairs caused by mechanical defects. These repairs include:
Battery: Covered for 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first)
Brake pads/shoes: Covered for 1 year or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first)
Bulbs: Halogen/xenon bulbs are covered for 3 years or 36,000 miles and all other bulbs are covered for 1 year or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first)
Paint: Covered for 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first)
Wiper blades: Covered for 1 year or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first)
Other coverage not caused by mechanical defects include wear and tear coverage for brake pads/shoes, brake discs/drums, and wiper blades, as well as mechanical adjustments. Brake pads/shoes and brake discs/drums worn below manufacturer specifications are under warranty for up to 1 year or 12,000 miles and wiper blades are covered for up to 6 months or 6,000 miles. Mechanical adjustments not caused by mechanical defects are covered for up to 1 year or 12,000 miles.
A more extensive list and description of the coverage can be found in each Volkswagen’s owner or manufacturer’s manual.
As you can see, you are still getting what other automakers include in their transferable bumper-to-bumper basic warranties plus more and for a longer period of time. That’s a whole of coverage under one extensive warranty.
How Does it Compare?
Volkswagen’s The People First Warranty is first for a reason. Not only does it include an extensive powertrain warranty, but it is longer in both years and miles than what other automakers offer for their transferable bumper-to-bumper basic warranty coverage.
Kia, Mitsubishi, and Hyundai only offer 5 years/60,000 miles for their transferable bumper-to-bumper basic warranty coverage compared to Volkswagen’s 6 years/72,000 miles.
Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, and Toyota offer an even shorter coverage period with their basic warranty coverage only covering 3 years/36,000 miles.
Volkswagen is confident in their vehicles and they value their customers first. So why settle for less when you can have more with Volkswagen’s The People First Warranty? This extended warranty literally outlasts the competition.
Volkswagen offers the 6 years/72,000 miles New Vehicle Limited Warranty on all their models except for the e-Golf, which comes with its own warranty.
