Default New VW People's Warranty 6 years / 72K miles

Has anyone seen the new VW commercials for their new 72/72 warranty?

VW must be having issues with their reputation. Or maybe they have been extending the warranty on so many cars with so many issues, they might as well just give it to the people upfront.

They probably figured they could sell more cars and have to give less discounts/rebates with the longer warranty. Maybe win some customers away from Hyundai / Kia.

I wonder how the Audi customers are feeling right now - Audi is sticking with their 4/50 plan.

I have not seen the commercials, but I did buy one of the cars with the 6yr./72k mile warranty. Time will tell how well it works.

Have Fun!

they will be happy to sell you one.

the standard warranty is about half that.

with longer warranty on drive train, and a pretty good rust through warranty.

The 2018 6 year 72,000 miles warranty will-is driving the prices down on the old year end, 2017 VW stock still on the dealer lot.

Have ya seen the $5,000 -- $6,000 -- $7,600 price cuts?

Low end cars under $13,000 anyone?

Hi Lightflywer1

Glad you're happy with your 11 year - 162,000 miles warranty

IMO the transferable issue (and disagreements) will hold your car resale value for years.

.... as you well know I am as nutty as a fruit cake on my final decision.

fix -- BB

But at least I have more than 300 days to go

You must not have heard...

ALL 2018 Vw's have a new car bumper to bumper warranty for 6 years / 72,000 miles. This is the limited new car warranty.

This is not one of the extended warranties like you are thinking.

Aha. perhaps this is another reason the 2017s are marked down.

Just picked up a 2017, and the warranty is less.

dealer presented a sheet with lots of costly additional service and warranty packages.

... I see where the lowly (cheap) Jettas are less than $13,000

Default Old stock (2017) New Stock (2018) dieselgate & warranties

Old stock (2017) New Stock (2018) dieselgate & warranties issues.

Wonder if the 162,000 11 year "thing" has pushed VW to 'bout double the 36000 - 5 year limited warranty.

More to the point will the 72,000 become the flagship for VW?

Being on the fence regarding the BB vs FIX... and 300+ days to go...

.... at the bottom of my choice is a new 2017 Golf with 36K and 3 years.

Then at the top is a new 2018 Golf (or) the fix $$$$s and warranty.

Still no guess as to when the 2018 Golf show date will be

Grrrrrrrrrr

When my wife and I picked up our new Passat, while the salesman was busy showing her how to work the sunvisors, I popped the dash fuse box cover off and reached in and yanked the DRL relay out.

He suddenly had this astonished look on his face. He asked "What are you doing???".

I handed him the relay and calmly said "Voiding my warranty. Here, you can keep this part.".
