Is the warranty on my Volkswagen vehicle transferable to another owner?

One of the big advantages that Volkswagen vehicles have over other automotive brands is the very generous People First Warranty. This includes a 6-years/72,000-miles warranty that provides bumper-to-bumper coverage. In comparison, most other cars only have a 3-years/36,000-miles basic warranty and a 5-years/60,000-miles powertrain warranty.

Volkswagen Transferable Warranty

Another great thing about the Volkswagen People First Warranty is that it is transferable to another owner at no extra cost — as long as it is transferred within the 6-years/72,000-miles warranty period. Most other car warranties are non-transferable.

Is there anything that the VW People First Warranty does not cover?

The Volkswagen People First Warranty covers repairs on anything that arises as the result of defects in workmanship or manufacturer’s material. It doesn’t cover routine maintenance and the repairs and replacement of parts that undergo normal wear and tear, such as a battery, wiper blades, brake pads, and tires.
