Default VW boosts warranties to 6 years, 72k miles for 2018 (in US)

http://www.autonews.com/article/2017...ervice-scandal

No longer just for the Atlas and Tiguan, VW USA is applying the longer warranty to almost all 2018 models. A smart move, if one they probably should have made years ago. This only solidifies the GTI as my likely next car - uncertain reliability was giving me pause but this addresses that nicely.

And people should still lease, but not buy VWs. VWs need every day and every mile of that warranty to keep cost of ownership under control.

Smart move by VW. Its definitely going to be a sales bonus. But they need to figure out a way to offer it on their new 2017 plus all those new 16 and 16 diesels sitting on lots

No they don't the delusional TDI fans would buy those cars without a warranty.

Depends on the model. The Jetta as it is now has a lower than average cost of ownership for the class.

Depends on the interval too. 100K miles in a VW is a nightmare bill waiting to happen whereas in a Honda it's just another oil change.

$400 to do a fluid change on a DSG VW is nuts.
