2018 Volkswagen Passat Available with People First Warranty

One of the standout features that we think car shoppers will be most excited about on the 2018 Volkswagen Passat is the inclusion of the new Volkswagen People First Warranty as standard. This limited bumper-to-bumper warranty is one of the best around and offers drivers protection for 6 years or 72,000 miles (whichever occurs first). The Volkswagen People First Warranty is also transferable, meaning if you choose to sell your car before the 6 years or 72,000 miles is up, the next owner can also receive the benefits of the warranty until the original timeframe has been reached. Volkswagen wants to make sure that when you pull out of the lot with a new Volkswagen model that you will feel confident you have made a quality purchase. The Volkswagen People First Warranty is available on most 2018 Volkswagen models, including the 2018 VW Passat. The 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf is not included.
