Sure, the 2014 Volkswagen models are coming to dealerships now with some new benefits—like the more powerful and more efficient turbo engine offered for entries like the 2014 VW Jetta and Passat—but it turns out the 2013 roster still offers some unique advantages of its own. Perhaps the most important? With the automaker reducing its “Carefree Maintenance” program to two years/24,000 miles for the new model year, VWs from the past one will continue to provide an additional 12 months and 12,000 miles worth of coverage.
That’s three years or 36,000 miles worth of routine service like scheduled oil changes, tire rotations, dust and pollen filter replacement, a multi-point inspection and more.
When you also consider that many VW dealers will be looking to lower prices on those 2013 models to make room for the 2014 lineup, there’s a clear advantage for customers who don’t mind driving last year’s vehicles. To find out more about it, contact your local Volkswagen dealership today.
