When looking for your next car, you shouldn’t be ONLY looking for the latest models, features, space and price…you should also be looking for quality craftsmanship, a model that fits your needs and, perhaps most importantly, a great warranty to keep you covered and give you peace of mind. Fortunately, new 2018 Volkswagen models have it all!
When Volkswagen decided to offer a warranty, they thought about people first. While most car companies, like Toyota and Honda, offer a standard three year or 36,000 miles warranty, Volkswagen thought you deserved more. They wanted to create an aggressive new-vehicle warranty that ensured their customers would be protected, and they did.
The People First Warranty* boasts 6-years or 72,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and it’s fully transferable to subsequent owners. That means the warranty not only covers the Powertrain (engine, transmission, front/rear axles and other drive components), like most top competitors, but Volkswagen also covers just about everything else, too! When Volkswagen says “bumper-to-bumper”, that means it includes limited coverage of your battery, brake pads, wheel alignment, paint, wiper blades and mechanical adjustments too! All the makings of this unmatched warranty is to ensure the reliability and longevity of your vehicle. And best of all, if you decide to switch to a new car before your warranty is up, (but, really, why would you?) the remainder of the warranty coverage is transferred to the new owner at no cost to you.
Volkswagen’s The People First Warranty gives you the peace of mind you need. But don’t just take our word for it, let’s compare the warranties from those other competitors. (Don’t worry, we did the research for you.)
Let’s start by analyzing Toyota’s New Owner warranty which offers its new car owners 3-years/36,000-miles of coverage for most components (also known as basic warranty); it has 5-year/60,000-mile coverage for its Powertrain components and 5 years of rust-through coverage. Volkswagen beats their basic warranty with bumper-to-bumper coverage for an additional 3 years.
A similar option is offered by Honda. Theirs also offers 3-years/36,000-miles on all components (other than normal wear) and 5-years/60,000-miles on the Powertrain components. Additionally, they cover replacements for original parts for up to a year and roadside assistance for vehicles that are not older than 3 years. Talk about basic. Volkswagen’s got that one beat too!
As for Hyundai, they offer basic coverage of 5-years or 60,000-miles. This includes coverage for radio and audio components, paint, battery, AC, adjustments and wear items (belts, brake pads, linings, wiper blades, bulbs and fuses). And yes, they’re known for their 10-year/100,000 mile coverage – but that’s only good on the Powertrain and only available to the car’s original owner.
Volkswagen took a unique approach in offering a bumper-to-bumper warranty for 6-years/72,000 miles. Volkswagen has such faith in the quality and craftsmanship of their vehicles that they’re backing it with this unparalleled warranty. It’s a pretty bold declaration, but we see can why.
Volkswagen’s People First Warranty is the best of its kind. It will cover the cost of repairs for any defect in manufacturer material or craftsmanship. For 6-years or 72,000-miles, it covers the Powertrain components, wear items and interior features, including the battery, brake pads/shoes, bulbs, paint, wiper blades, and wheel alignment/tire blades. That’s better and longer coverage than any of the top competitors!
