2018 VW Atlas and Tiguan: 6 year warranty!
That’s right. VW has announced it will offer a 6 year warranty on the 2018 Atlas and 2018 Tiguan.
It is a complete bumper to bumper warranty for 6 years or 72 000 miles.
It is also transferable to the next owner.
I think this is a great move from VW.
Everyone is, of course, mentioning the Diesel scandal as the reason for offering this.
Maybe it is.
But the main reason, to me, is how unreliable VW cars have been in the US.
(For some reason they have this Golden reputation in Europe…)
They have constantly been rated near the bottom or reliability surveys for years.
To let you in on something personal, I have owned 2 VWs. Both bought new.
And have experienced first hand the never ending frustrations of owning a car that requites contant trips to the dealer. (The second one, provided to me under California’s great lemon law, was better. Still not great)
I think a 6 year bumper to bumper warranty will do wonders here in the US (This will not be available in other countries)
I also really think this should be extended to ALL their 2018 models.
Jetta, Beetle and Passat owners also deserve piece of mind…
What do you think?
Would this actually make you consider the new Tiguan or Atlas?
