Volkswagen Extends Warranty Coverage

May 14th, 2020 by

As part of Volkswagen’s Community-Driven Promise, Volkswagen of America announced today that additional measures will be taken to help customers during the current pandemic. Volkswagen will extend its New Vehicle Limited Warranty and its Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty by three additional months. Coverage would’ve otherwise ended on the 31st of May, 2020.

The three-month extension will benefit owners of new and certified pre-owned vehicles whose warranty is set to expire between March and May 2020, thus giving owners additional peace of mind during these uncertain times. 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 doesn’t require any action from the vehicle owner.

“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.”

Volkswagen and Volkswagen Credit (VCI) also announced an extension to Community-Driven Promise customer payment relief options put in place because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This program remains in place through June 1, 2020.
