How much will it cost consumers to extend their Automotion maintenance plans or acquire contracts for models that do not include contracts as part of the purchase price?
And are the maintenance contracts available to consumers who bought their Volkswagens before February 1? If so, how much would it cost take one out?
CARtoday.com reported last week that, as from February 1, a five-year/60 000 km Volkswagen Automotion Plan had been included in the purchase price of all Golf IV and Jetta IV, Passat, Sharan, Beetle and T4 Caravelle vehicles sold in South Africa.
Citi Golf, Caddy, Polo Classic and “New” Polo owners were also being offered an option to purchase a Volkswagen Automotion Plan, the Uitenhage-based manufacturer said last week. And, as can be seen on Table 1 below, new owners of such models can choose to purchase five-year/60 000 km, 80 000 km, 100 000 km, 120 000 km, 140 000 km or 160 000 km maintenance plans.
”Owners can therefore buy a contract tailored to their driving habits,” Louise Jacobs of Volkwagen dealership Philwest Motors told CARtoday.com recently. “For example, owners who are required to travel long distances may envisage covering more than 12 000 km a year and opt to purchase a more encompassing plan than the basic five-year/60 000 km option for their vehicles”.
