Passat Extended Warranty Information
If you are purchasing an Passat, or if you already own one, you may be thinking about getting some level of coverage beyond the normal manufacturer's warranty. Although Passat's are generally very reliable vehicles, consumers often think about an extended auto warranty to offer protection and peace of mind that they are looking for. It is important to know the difference between an extended warranty and a vehicle protection plan.
A vehicle protection plan is a promise to perform (or pay for) repairs or services. These plans can be obtained at any time and always cost extra; while a Passat extended warranty or Passat factory warranty comes with a new car and is included in the original purchase price of the vehicle. Passat Coverage programs can either extend the original level of coverage that came with your vehicle, or offer you a limited protection plan. These plans are accepted nationwide at all Passat dealers, and also afford you with most of the benefits usually granted with a new car purchases.
