Volkswagen extends New Vehicle Limited, Certified Pre-Owned Limited warranties through July
Volkswagen will extend its New Vehicle Limited Warranty and its Certified pre-owned Limited Warranty by three additional months for all vehicles for which coverage would have ended between March 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020.
"Getting to the dealership for service or warranty work may not be an option for our customers right now," said David Durant, Senior Vice President, After Sales for Volkswagen of America. "We want to give our customers flexibility and this is just another example of Volkswagen's commitment to putting our customers first."
The extension is good for any owner who has a new or certified pre-owned vehicles whose warranty is set to expire between March and May 2020. For example, if the limited warranty would have otherwise expired on April 20, it will be extended until July 20. The extension is automatic and requires no action by the owner.
There is one important caveat, however. If the New Vehicle Limited Warranty or Certified pre-owned Limited Warranty expire due to mileage rather than time, no extension will be provided.
Volkswagen is also extending its payment relief options that were initially put in place at the beginning of the pandemic. The program remains in place through June 1. In addition to deferring new vehicle payments for 90 days, lease extensions up to six months, and waiving past maturity fees in certain circumstances.
Volkswagen is committed to an electrified future. The company recently announced that its I.D. Crozz concept vehicle will come to life as the all-electric ID.4 crossover. While some EV models in the VW lineup are exclusively for overseas market, the ID.4 will be built and sold in the U.S.
