Volkswagen Buying Benefits

    When it comes to purchasing a new vehicle, we know it can be stressful with the number of options and choices presented to you. If it wasn’t overwhelming enough picking the right vehicle – SUV or crossover? 4WD or 2WD? – you’ll also need to consider the extra benefits that are important to you. Thankfully, Volkswagen makes this a breeze. All new Volkswagen vehicles come with a 5-year, 150,000 kilometer factory warranty (whichever comes first), 5-years Roadside Assistance, and an 8-year, 160,000 kilometer high voltage battery warranty (whichever comes first, if applicable to the vehicle).

    Back with a host of benefits, it leaves you to get onto the fun stuff – like deciding what colour you’d like your T-Cross. Keep reading to explore Volkswagen’s buying benefits in more detail.

    5-Year Warranty and Roadside Assist

    Leaving you to focus on the journey.

    Wherever the road takes you, have peace of mind knowing you’re covered by a 5-year/150,000 km Volkswagen warranty (whichever comes first). Drive with confidence knowing you’re also covered by 5 years of Roadside Assist – whether you’ve accidentally been locked out, forgotten to refuel, or simply have a flat battery the friendly Volkswagen Roadside Assistance Team are just a call away. Available 24/7 365 days a year throughout New Zealand, a roadside breakdown doesn’t have to cause you any further distress.

    Key features of Volkswagen Roadside Assist include:

    • Testing and jump-starting your Volkswagen
    • Getting access to your vehicle if you’re locked out
    • Changing a tyre
    • Delivery of fuel if you’re out
    • Towing to an approved dealer or safer place

    In most cases, a breakdown can be resolved on the roadside, meaning you can get safely back on your way. If there’s a more complex issue that can’t be resolved roadside, we’ll provide expert advice and if needed tow your car to the nearest approved Volkswagen dealership. If you’re more than 100 kilometres from home and the issue can’t be amended within 24 hours, Volkswagen Roadside Assist will provide:

    • Transport to your nearest authorised Volkswagen dealer
