With technology advancements in the automotive industry, vehicles are lasting longer than in years past. While this is good news since we don’t have to worry about buying a new car every few years, it also means we have to take good care of what we have. Will you be protected beyond your original manufacturer warranty?
A basic limited Volkswagen manufacturer warranty is 3 years or 36,000 miles. Ask about the maintenance and repair options that come with this warranty or any others offered at the time of your vehicle purchase. Each warranty will offer different coverage for varying lengths of time, so you’ll want to make sure you’re well aware of the details before agreeing to the terms.
US Car Protection offers vehicle service contracts designed specifically for those who require coverage beyond their warranty expiration date. If your Volkswagen warranty expires and you don’t have another policy in place, you’re left to pay for any repairs straight out of your pocket. In many instances, this can mean several hundred dollars, a financial stress on any driver.
Average Repair Costs for Volkswagen Vehicles
Depending if you bought your vehicle brand new from the dealership or from a private owner will determine the type of coverage that may have been included in your purchase. A Volkswagen certified pre-owned warranty may not cover all major vehicle parts. You’ll want to review what coverage you do have and cover any lapses accordingly.
The table shows a sampling of common repairs for Volkswagen vehicles as time goes on. The price range depends on your car’s model, how many miles it has, and where you decide to get work performed. A vehicle part itself typically does not range too much in price, unless it’s a specially-branded part necessary for Volkswagen vehicles. However, labor costs can range significantly and in some cases, almost double the total price you’ll pay to get your vehicle fixed.
A vehicle service contract allows you to plan for unforeseen vehicle repairs on a budget that works for you. Rather than unexpectedly paying hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars at one time, you can have control over your coverage. When working with US Car Protection, payments are made directly to the auto repair shop for you.
