Heh, I'm not the one deciding anything, I don't represent VoA nor do I work at any dealer. I have no use of any warranties (never did, I void all mine typically within a day or so of buying my car). And if I DID have one of these cars with the extra warranty, I STILL wouldn't be taking it in there for them to touch.

But I realize that for some folks, that is simply not a feasible option. And in some cases, for reasons I will never understand, some people weigh the warranty as an often great or even singular reason to buy one of these cars in the first place.

But you are the one telling someone else only half of what is the whole picture. Most people should read and know the warranty "before" buying the car. It has two parts. One from the date of sale and one from the last fix done. Some value the warranty and others don't. Some dealers do good jobs and some don't. Most of us aren't professional mechanics or have other limitations that stop us from doing everything we want.

I sold my 2003 Beetle for this 2015 due to my trusted mechanic moving away. No other knowledgeable mechanic around that I know of that is good with these cars. Buying the 2015 Beetle gave me freedom from that. The original in service date works for me right now for some time. 2015 and 40k miles so far. I also carry GEICO's MBI (mechanical Breakdown Insurance) on it. I am waiting for Part 2B of the service for another extension of the emissions warranty later in the life of the car.

Troopers;

Using this link: https://www.vwdieselinfo.com/ provided by redbarron55, I looked up the warranty for my specific car by VIN. It showed precisely what I said in Post 11. The 10 year, 12k mile warranty is timed from the in-service date, at least on my car.

Maybe you are both right. Not important anyway. My question was answered to my satisfaction.

You didn't check it all that well then as you missed the part about extending the warranty after the fixes are completed. Don't short yourself if you value the warranty. You could be missing out on a large chunk of it. Here is the particulars for the 2015 cars. The earlier ones were similar with different time and mileage specs. From the document itself:

"Warranty Period
The warranty period for the “Extended Emissions Warranty” limited warranty extension shall be the greater of:
 11 years or 162,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the vehicle’s original in-service date; OR
 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the date and mileage of Phase 1 of the emissions modification. At the time of the subsequent Phase 2 modification, the extended warranty will be honored for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the date and mileage of the completion of Phase 2.

The vehicle’s original in-service date is defined as the date the vehicle was delivered to either the original purchaser or the original lessee; or if the vehicle was first placed in service as a “demonstrator” or “company” car, on the date such vehicle was first placed in service."

And since the OP does not have a 2015, some of those things do not apply. The 2015s have a slightly different emissions control system, and have a slightly different fix.

Right. but like I said very very similar. Here it is for the 2009-2014 cars.

"Warranty Period
The warranty period for the “Extended Emissions Warranty” limited
warranty extension shall be the greater of:
 10 years or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first from
the vehicle’s original in-service date; OR
 4 years or 48,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the
date and mileage of the emissions modification.

The vehicle’s original in-service date is defined as the date the vehicle
was delivered to either the original purchaser or the original lessee; or
if the vehicle was first placed in service as a “demonstrator” or
“company” car, on the date such vehicle was first placed in service."

There are still two parts of the warranty and the terms are just slightly different. But basically the same thing applies to all the cars. An in service warranty of some duration and an after fix warranty of some duration, whichever is longer of the two.

Took a second look at the warranty paper. The flyer is correct.
