Our new program includes vehicles up to 7 years old (160,000 km), which means that you’ve got an even wider selection of certified used Volkswagens to choose from. Of course, all our vehicles are still vigorously tested during our 112-point inspection and come with an approved vehicle history report from CarProof®. For further peace of mind, we now also offer two warranty levels.

The Assurance Program

All Certified Pre-owned Volkswagen vehicles are covered for the remainder of the manufacturer’s warranty plus 6-months of complimentary roadside assistance**.

The Assurance Premium Program

If your Certified Pre-owned Volkswagen is less than 5 years old (120,000 km), you can upgrade to an extended 2-year / 40,000 km warranty with 2 years of complimentary roadside assistance**

Roadside assistance. A.K.A. ``Peace of Mind``

Volkswagen’s 24-hour Roadside Assistance* comes free of charge with the Volkswagen Certified Pre-owned limited warranty. And did we mention that it’s good for 2 years or 40,000 kilometers, whichever occurs first (under the Assurance Premium program).

You’ll receive your Roadside Assistance kit within two to four weeks of the delivery of your Volkswagen Certified Pre-owned vehicle. 24/7, you’ll benefit from:

  • Tows to the nearest licensed Volkswagen dealer
  • Boosts
  • Flat tire changes
  • Unlocking your door (should you accidentally leave your keys inside—hey, it happens to the best of us)
  • Gas delivery
  • Emergency repairs

Call 1.800.411.6608

Just one call to this number and Roadside Assistance* is on its way. However, they will ask you for:

  • Your vehicle’s identification number
  • Your vehicle’s year, model, colour and license plate number
  • The area code where you’re calling from
  • The exact location of the vehicle (street address and nearest intersection)
  • The type of service required and a brief description of the problem


Limited Warranty

Sleep easy. Our 2-year/40,000 km* limited warranty has you covered.

And we’re talking about a real warranty here, not just a maintenance contract. This means that protection covers the vehicle, and you won’t be charged for any repair or service deemed necessary because of a broken or malfunctioning part covered by the warranty.

But don’t take our word for it. You can check it out yourself and read about all the advantages of our Volkswagen Certified Pre-owned limited warranty below.


Under the Assurance Premium warranty, your vehicle is covered under the remainder of the manufacturer’s limited warranty plus an additional 2-year/40,000 km basic warranty (whichever comes first) / Begins when the new vehicle limited warranty expires or upon the sales date of the Volkswagen Certified Pre-owned vehicle (whichever occurs later) / 2-year Roadside Assistance** / No deductible on covered repairs, which are: engine, steering, front and rear axles, manual transmission, electrical power supply, heating and air conditioning, ABS brakes, electrical systems, torque converter, differential, material or manufacturing defects (but not normal wear-and-tear, or damage to the appearance of the vehicle, tires or exhaust system). Includes the balance of the limited powertrain warranty, which is transferable along with any remaining limited warranty against perforation due to corrosion (balance of new vehicle warranty).

$150 warranty transfer (no charge in Quebec and Nova Scotia). Transfer fees are subject to G.S.T. as well as applicable provincial taxes and are the buyer’s responsibility. The transfer comes into effect when Volkswagen Canada (Volkswagen Certified Pre-owned Vehicles Warranty Department) receives the name, address and telephone number of the new owner, along with the vehicle’s complete identification number.

Repairs covered by the warranty can be done at any licensed VW Canada dealer.

Where to Get Guaranteed Service

Aside from the exceptions under “Emergency Repairs”, all repairs covered by the limited warranty must be done by a Volkswagen dealer or at a licensed Volkswagen Canada service center.

Emergency Repairs

In the event of an emergency, when it’s impossible or unreasonable to drive or tow the vehicle to the nearest licensed Volkswagen dealer, Volkswagen will pay a reasonable amount of all covered repairs that are performed by a service center other than a licensed Volkswagen dealer. For any emergency repairs performed by a service center other than Volkswagen, you must keep all receipts, repair orders and replaced parts. A written declaration of the circumstances that prevented you from taking your vehicle to a licensed Volkswagen dealer should be attached to the receipts and repair orders provided by the service provider, and submitted to Volkswagen to support your reimbursement claim.
