Volkswagen Extended Warranty Information
If you are purchasing an Volkswagen, or if you already own one, you may be thinking about getting some level of coverage beyond the normal manufacturer's warranty. Although Volkswagen's are generally very reliable vehicles, an extended auto warranty may provide you with protection to offer you the peace of mind you are looking for. Volkswagen Coverage programs can either extend the original level of coverage that came with your vehicle, or offer you a limited extended warranty plan. These plans are accepted nationwide at all Volkswagen dealers, and also afford you with most of the benefits usually granted with new car purchases.

Volkswagen Extended Warranties - Independent Companies
Although Volkswagen offers a very good extended warranty, many consumers feel more comfortable joining a third party provider. With a third party plan there are no restrictions regarding where you need to bring your vehicle, allowing you to go to any garage or mechanic in the country. This advantage will free you of the hassles of having to always deal with a dealer, make an appointment days away, and wait all afternoon for your repairs to be finished. You should investigate your options before picking your extended warranty plan.

Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Warranty

All CPO Volkswagens are covered by a 2 year or 24,000 mile (whichever comes first) comprehensive limited warranty. A few of the finer details: There's no deductible charged when you visit a dealer for covered repairs. In the U.S. you also receive the balance of the 5 years or 50,000 mile limited powertrain warranty and any remaining corrosion perforation warranty.

The VW CPO limited warranty begins when the new car limited warranty expires or the used sale date, whichever occurs later. Warranty repairs can be made at any authorized Volkswagen dealer in the US or Canada.

Obviously there are a few things you'll have to be responsible for - like normal wear and tear, any alterations you make and (heaven forbid) accidental damage. You'll also have to take care of regular maintenance services like oil changes.

2 Years of Roadside Assistance program coverage in the 24 hours, 7 days a week in the US or Canada at no charge. Roadside Assistance in the US is provided by the American Automobile Association (AAA) and its affiliated clubs. Roadside Assistance in Canada is provided by Professional Dispatch Group.

Volkswagen Credit - Buying vs. Leasing*

Do you like the idea of owning your Volkswagen? Or would you rather enjoy a Volkswagen vehicle for a while and turn it in for a new Volkswagen at the end of your lease?
Here's some food for thought. Would you rather spend a little each month for a Volkswagen with the option to buy, or pay a little more each month and own? Would you be limited by potential mileage restrictions? Do you need to build equity? Read on to help you decide.

Volkswagen Credit - Financing

Maybe you're the type who loves your Volkswagen and wants to hold on to it for more than just 2-4 years. Or someone who simply enjoys the fact that being a Volkswagen owner eliminates restrictions. Or perhaps you just like shouting from the rooftops "Mine, all mine!" Whatever it is, if the prospect of buying a Volkswagen tickles your fancy, we're the ones who'd like to help make it happen.
When you buy (or "finance") a Volkswagen, you arrange to make monthly payments for the length of the loan. As soon as you pay that off, your Volkswagen is all yours. That's right. No mileage restrictions. No charges for excess wear. Just you and your Volkswagen and the open road.

Volkswagen Credit - Leasing

Think of it as renting. People who lease a Volkswagen pay for the vehicle for X amount of time. Depending on your needs, X can be anywhere from 1 to 5 years.
Simply put, the shorter the lease term, the sooner you can get a new Volkswagen. The longer the lease term, the payments are typically lower. In either case, you typically pay less per month to lease your Volkswagen than someone who buys*. Hence, more car for the money. And at the end of your lease, you get to decide whether to buy your Volkswagen or return it to the dealer.

Obviously, all this comes with a few restrictions and your decision can be affected by things like mileage limitations and applicable fees.

If you think leasing may be for you, talk to your Volkswagen dealer. They'll be glad to explain everything.

Volkswagen Credit - Drivers Option

Can't decide between leasing and buying? Then don't.
Lot's of people wrestle with this decision. But wrestle no more. Volkswagen Credit has come up with a way to let you enjoy the benefits of both.

It's called Driver's Option** and it's based on a financing contract. It's a plan where your Volkswagen is registered in your name (a chance to build some equity) but the monthly payments are typically lower (more like a lease). There's no security deposit or acquisition fee and at the end of the term you'll have three options. You can either keep the car and pay the balance or keep the car and refinance the balance. Or simply return the car to the dealer**. The choice is yours.

*There may be additional fees at lease end based on excess mileage, wear and damages. Subject to credit approval.

**Ask your Dealer if Driver's Option is available in your state. Subject to credit approval. There may be additional fees based on excess mileage, wear and damages.

†If you have proper insurance in place and if your car is ever stolen or totaled, Gap protects you from loss by paying the difference between your insurance proceeds and the balance owed. For complete program information, please refer to the Volkswagen Credit Gap Contract Amendment.
