Volkswagen Pre-Owned Limited Warranty

Sleep easy. Our optional 2-year/40,000 km* limited warranty has you covered.

And we're talking about a real warranty here, not just a maintenance contract. This means that protection covers the vehicle, and you won't be charged for any repair or service deemed necessary because of a broken or malfunctioning part covered by the warranty.

But don't take our word for it. You can check it out yourself and read about all the advantages of our Volkswagen certified pre-owned limited warranty below.


With the purchase of our Assurance Premium warranty, your vehicle is covered under the remainder of the manufacturer's limited warranty plus an additional 2-year/40,000 km basic warranty (whichever comes first) / Begins when the new vehicle limited warranty expires or upon the sales date of the Volkswagen Certified Pre-owned vehicle (whichever occurs later) / 2-year Roadside Assistance** / No deductible on covered repairs, which are: engine, steering, front and rear axles, manual transmission, electrical power supply, heating and air conditioning, ABS brakes, electrical systems, torque converter, differential, material or manufacturing defects (but not normal wear-and-tear, or damage to the appearance of the vehicle, tires or exhaust system). Includes the balance of the limited powertrain warranty, which is transferable along with any remaining limited warranty against perforation due to corrosion (balance of new vehicle warranty).

Should you sell your vehicle, the Assurance Premium warranty will not automatically transfer to the new owner. A $150 warranty transfer (no charge in Quebec and Nova Scotia) will be charged. Transfer fees are subject to G.S.T. as well as applicable provincial taxes and are the buyer's responsibility. The transfer comes into effect when Volkswagen Canada (Volkswagen Certified Pre-owned Vehicles Warranty Department) receives the name, address and telephone number of the new owner, along with the vehicle's complete identification number.

Repairs covered by the warranty can be done at any licensed VW Canada dealer.

Where to Get Guaranteed Service

Aside from the exceptions under "Emergency Repairs", all repairs covered by the limited warranty must be done by a Volkswagen dealer or at a licensed Volkswagen Canada service centre.

Emergency Repairs

In the event of an emergency, when it's impossible or unreasonable to drive or tow the vehicle to the nearest licensed Volkswagen dealer, Volkswagen will pay a reasonable amount of all covered repairs that are performed by a service centre other than a licensed Volkswagen dealer. For any emergency repairs performed by a service centre other than Volkswagen, you must keep all receipts, repair orders and replaced parts. A written declaration of the circumstances that prevented you from taking your vehicle to a licensed Volkswagen dealer should be attached to the receipts and repair orders provided by the service provider, and submitted to Volkswagen to support your reimbursement claim.
