VW Offers 6-Year/72,000-Mile Warranty That Beats Competition

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

tiguan-warranty Speedcraft Volkswagen in Wakefield, RI, is proud to announce that most 2018 Volkswagens in the United States will come with 6-year/72,000-mile warranty.

Called the “People First Warranty,” the bumper-to-bumper package includes powertrain coverage for engines, transmissions and optional 4Motion® all-wheel-drive systems. The warranty can be transferred to subsequent owners for up to six years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first, from the date it was first sold new, VW announced.

Most competitors offer a three-year/36,000 mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty on their cars and SUVs. Normally, if a vehicle is sold to a second owner, the powertrain limited warranty is not transferable beyond five years or 60,000 miles from the date it was first sold new, VW says.
