Volkswagen is extending its support to drivers of its older vehicles by launching a new aftersales package for cars that are now past their original three-year warranty.
Called ‘All-in from Volkswagen’ the new scheme is available for drivers of VWs aged between three and six years old, with the two-year package including two services, two years roadside assistance and warranty and two MOTs. Volkswagen says it’s a ‘multi-dimensional plan designed to save customers both time and money’.
Predicted to be available for more than 500,000 used Volkswagens, the scheme costs from £33.45 per month or a one-off payment for £802.80. The firm says the scheme represents an £833 saving on if the items were individually purchased.
Available for popular models like the Up!, Polo and Golf, the only exclusions for the scheme are EVs, those with an engine size more than 2.0-litre (only the large Touareg SUV has this) and those with more than 100,000 miles on the clock. Volkswagen says cars will need a free inspection before they can be signed up.
Andrew Savvas, director of Volkswagen UK, said: “Until All-in from Volkswagen, this kind of comprehensive support was not offered by a manufacturer.
“At Volkswagen, we’re incredibly proud of our cars, whether they’re brand new and showroom-fresh or well used and loved, and believe that all of our customers deserve the best support, even if their car is a few years old. The peace of mind and value for money that this innovative programme provides is sure to make the lives of our customers easier, thanks to the many benefits that All-in provides.
“The programme, and the investment behind it, proves our commitment to providing an industry-leading package for owners of used Volkswagens. A customer isn’t just a customer until they leave the showroom, or even for a year or two after that – our support is ongoing and comprehensive, and reflects the belief we have in our cars, long after they are delivered to the first owner.”
