Now covering all Volkswagen models, the German manufacturer claims to have become the first European automotive manufacturer in Australia to offer a six-year capped-price servicing scheme on its entire range of commercial vehicles, including the Caddy, Transporter, Multivan, Caravelle, Crafter, and Amarok.
Under the scheme, all new commercials first registered in Australia on or after January 1, 2013 will be covered for six years of fixed-priced scheduled services, or for 90,000km (180,000km for Volkswagen Crafter models) – whichever comes first.
Each scheduled service includes the replacement of oil filters, engine oil and sump plug washer at each service interval, along with the replacement of the air filter at 45,000km and 90,000km and spark plugs every 60,000km.
Commercial vehicle customers will now see the capped-price servicing program team with Volkswagen’s three year/unlimited kilometre warranty and three-year roadside assist.
Under the new program, services will range from a minimum of $351 for a Volkswagen Caddy TSI160 at 15,000km or 12 months, to $1084 for a Volkswagen Transporter/Multivan/Caravelle TSI350 at 60,000km or 48 months.
Volkswagen expanded its capped-price servicing program beyond the initial Volkswagen Up! model effective from March 28, applying it to all new passenger cars sold from January 1, 2013, including the recently released Volkswagen Beetle and all-new Golf Mk7.
