All new Volkswagen models come with a 3-year/120,000km manufacturer warranty, offering its driver added peace of mind. A new car probably won’t need tyres, battery, new brake linings or exhaust system during the first few years of ownership.
Shopping for a new Volkswagen provides the opportunity to get exactly what you want. You can test drive several different makes and models until you find the one that suits you best, and if you don’t like its features, the dealer may be able to order a vehicle outfitted to your specification directly from the factory.
Buying a new Volkswagen also gives you access to the latest safety and comfort features. With the benefit of Volkswagen's AutoMotion Maintenance Plan (available on most models) the cost of routine maintenance is taken care of.
Unlike so many used cars, Volkswagen MasterCars are put through the most stringent of quality checks, making sure that the car you get comes with a full-service history, guaranteed ownership and certified mileage and a 7-day exchange plan. Any components that need replacing are fitted with genuine Volkswagen parts.
Owning and operating a previously-owned car costs much less than a new vehicle, primarily because depreciation is no longer such an issue with a used car. Owing to Volkswagen’s under-the-skin German engineering, you can rest assured that if looked after properly, your MasterCar will deliver loyal service for many years.
With all the above in mind, you should still prepare for costs such as new tyres, a tune-up, new seat covers or cosmetic repair jobs sooner to that of a new car.
