Volkswagen PH Announces Warranty Extension
Volkswagen Philippines, recognizing the restrictions to the motoring public’s movements during the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) imposed by the government since mid-March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, has announced that warranties on Volkswagen vehicles expiring within the period of the ECQ would be extended for three more months, or up to August 31, 2020.
This warranty extension provides Volkswagen vehicle owners the opportunity to avail of the after sales privileges covered by their vehicles’ warranties once the dealerships are allowed to reopen and accept customers under the general community quarantine (GCQ) business guidelines.
Under the current ECQ guidelines, non-essential establishments such as automobile dealerships have remained closed, disallowing the customers for their vehicles to be serviced or parts to be replaced.
The three-month warranty extension covers Volkswagen passenger and commercial vehicles sold by authorized dealers, and with warranties expiring between March 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020. Thus, the warranty extension runs from June 1, 2020 to August 31, 2020 only.
The warranty extension offer is on top of the 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance (ERA) that provides owners and drivers that added layer of security, safety, and peace of mind. With the assurance of extended warranty coverage even after ECQ is lifted, Volkswagen owners and drivers can move into the “new normal” the safest, most convenient, and most worry-free way.
