What kind of warranty comes with the 2018 VW Atlas and Tiguan models?
Whether you are buying a new vehicle or one that has been pre-owned, a number of different concerns may cross your mind. Among those concerns is the question and uncertainty of what happens if something goes wrong or needs servicing on your vehicle. Are you going to have to pay an arm and a leg to get it fixed? Will your vehicle last as long as its warranty does, only to break down the day after it expires? This is not a concern to take lightly, as budgeting is important for people in all areas of life. Volkswagen understands that in order to offer proper peace of mind for customers, a quality warranty needs to be in place. What kind of warranty comes with the 2018 VW Atlas and Tiguan models? Read on for more details!
A New Vehicle Limited Warranty to beat all peers
The new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas and 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan will offer a six-year or 72,000 miles (whichever comes first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty with coverage that is transferable beyond the first owner. This bumper-to-bumper warranty includes powertrain coverage for the engines, transmissions, and optional 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.
“We specifically designed and built the all-new Atlas and Tiguan for American customers. This warranty further addresses the needs of American buyers head-on. We’re confident in the reliability and workmanship of these SUVs, and we want our customers to be confident in their purchase. We believe this warranty will lead to reduced cost of ownership for Volkswagen owners.”
– Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and Chief Executive Officer of Volkswagen Group of America
When you compare this to the warranties offered on major competing models to the Atlas, such as the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, and Nissan Pathfinder, you can see why the Volkswagen warranty offers a higher value. Those competitors offer a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Major Tiguan competitors, such as the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4, offer those same warranties. The Volkswagen warranty is longer, and it can also be transferred to subsequent owners for up to six years or 72,000 miles from when it was originally sold, whichever occurs first.
