Audi believes in “progress through technology” when it comes to its company’s core values. It maintains a rich history of engineering and collaboration, as depicted by its four-ring emblem, a symbol joining Audi, DKW, Wanderer, and Horch, all previously independently-owned, but together make up AUDI AG.
Partially credited to Audi’s focus on technology and modern advancements for their vehicles, they have climbed the ranks to #36 on Forbes World’s Most Valuable Brands List, as of May 2016, valued at $14 billion. The brand delivered 1.8 million automobiles in 2015 and has been a strong competitor in the automotive world for over 40 years.
New vehicle owners are offered coverage for 4 years or 50,000 miles with the Audi manufacturer warranty; in addition to inclusion of a 4-year roadside assistance program and 12-year limited warranty against corrosion. With the Audi certified pre-owned limited warranty, drivers are covered for 2 years or up to 50,000 miles.
When you purchase a new vehicle, preparing for serious repairs is probably the furthest thought from your mind. However, it pays to be prepared. Take time to review your Audi manufacturer warranty and start to think about your options for coverage after it expires.
Average Repair Costs for Audi Vehicles
There is never an opportune time to need vehicle repairs. Costs for parts like brakes or a water pump can easily add up to hundreds of dollars in unexpected expenses, as illustrated below. This can cause a heavy financial strain and be a burden for time you’re without a vehicle.
US Car Protection offers coverage options to ensure major mechanical and electrical parts and costs are covered when these situations arise. A vehicle service contract (commonly referred to as an extended warranty) helps drivers budget, plan, and prepare for the future of inevitable repair costs. It’s not if this will be necessary, but when.
After the initial excitement of a new car purchase begins to wear off, we want to make sure you have reviewed all your options for coverage beyond your original warranty. Too often drivers allow a warranty to expire before realizing they have to pay out-of-pocket for expensive repairs. With US Car Protection, you can feel confident in your coverage.
|Water pump replacement||$331 to $1,820|
|Head gasket(s) replacement||$976 to $9,003|
