Updates to the Volkswagen Warranty
From 2018 to 2019, Volkswagen customers enjoyed the 6 year/72,000 mile warranty coverage. For 2020 they reduced that warranty length down to 4 years or 50,000 miles. Although the warranty coverage is shorter, it still beats the warranty length of competing manufacturers like Ford, Chevy, Honda, and Toyota. Volkswagen made this choice due to the length of ownership. A spokesperson said that many customers are leasing their Volkswagen models for no more than three years. However, if you are buying a 2019 model, you will still receive the 6 year/72,000 mile People First Warranty coverage.
To compensate for the decreased coverage, Volkswagen added a two-year factory-covered maintenance plan. They also three levels of extended warranty options: Powertrain, Gold, and Platinum. Powertrain, the lowest level, covers the basic components that keep the vehicle running. The Gold Plan offers a longer list of components than the Powertrain Plan. Platinum, the highest plan, covers repairs on the engine, transmission, electrical, air conditioning, computer, audio, power windows, suspension, new technology and much more.
