    [​IMG] Fully transferable for second, third, fourth ... owners as well!

    VW’s commitment to quality and confidence in their cars and SUVs for new and used buyers jut took a quantum leap as the brand is moving to an almost unfathomable bumper to bumper coverage.

    First introduced for the all-new 2018 Atlas and Tiguan, the “People First Warranty” now covers the rest of the lineup including the 2018 VW Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Golf, Golf Alltrack, Golf GTI, Golf R, and Golf SportWagen, Jetta and Passat.

    The 6-year/72,000-mile “People First Warranty” includes powertrain coverage for engines, transmissions and optional 4Motion AWD systems. Additionally, all the elements of the People First Warranty can be transferred to subsequent owners for up to six years or 72,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the date it was first sold new.

    Most mainstream competitors to the Volkswagen brand in the United States such as Honda, Toyota and Ford offer just a 3-year/36,000 mile basic warranty and a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty on their cars, trucks, and SUVs. While Hyundai offers its Hyundai Assurance program which includes a 5-year/60,000-mile fully-transferable new vehicle bumper to bumper limited warranty, Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and five years of complimentary Roadside Assistance. If the vehicle is sold to a second owner, the powertrain limited warranty is not transferable beyond five years or 60,000 miles from the date it was first sold new.

    This would make another VW appealing sometime in the future, if the warranty is also on Canadian models.

    A Golf or Jetta was looking pretty good to me before this. Now , even sweeter.
