Cost of Ownership | Why buy a Volkswagen?

Here are the facts: when you buy a VW you’re buying a German-engineered vehicle that’s built to last. Combine that with a longer than average warranty, and the expertise, peace of mind, and up to 26% savings that comes with VW Prepaid Maintenance, and you’ll realize that owning a Volkswagen is a lot more affordable than you think. 

The Volkswagen advantage

A great warranty. 

A German-engineered VW is made to go the distance, and our limited warranty is designed to go the extra mile, too. That’s why we offer a full 4 years/80,000 km (whichever occurs first) on every new vehicle. Plus lifetime no-cost brake pads after the initial brake replacement (installation and brake discs are extra),* a powertrain warranty of 5 years/100,000 km, and 2 years unlimited kilometer coverage on Volkswagen parts when we service your VW.**

VW Prepaid Maintenance

Everyone loves a surprise, unless it’s under the hood. With VW Prepaid Maintenance you’ll enjoy regular, worry-free service from top technicians, and even save up to 26% over the life of your plan.

Brake pads for life

Once you pay for your first expert VW Brake Pad and Disc replacement service at a certified Volkswagen dealer, you’ll never have to pay for genuine VW brake pads again for as long as you own your vehicle (installation and brake discs are extra).* That’s an offer with real stopping power.


Over the life of your plan, you can expect to save as much as 26% versus the cost of a-la-carte maintenance. Plus you can even roll the cost of your PPM into your existing monthly payments. See how much you can save when you add PPM to Build and Price.

Every Volkswagen vehicle is concepted and designed by our world-class automotive engineers in Germany. We feel this results in a higher standard of precision that you can feel in the performance and handling, overall ride quality, and reliability of every VW vehicle.

Every new Volkswagen comes with a 4 year/80000 km warranty, which include roadside assistance coverage. That’s a full year and 20,000 km longer than the average competitor. And it’s proof that we stand behind the quality of every vehicle we make.

Rest assured, your VW is protected by one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry. But there are different types of coverage for different VWs: This includes new vehicle warranties, Certified Pre-Owned warranties, and even warranties for parts and accessories, too.
