  • Volkswagen Roadside Assistance is included with every new Volkswagen vehicle sold, at no charge to the owner. Coverage lasts for 3 years of 36,000 miles, whichever arrives first.
  • Drivers who choose a certified pre-owned VW will also enjoy at least two years of free roadside assistance. If the CPO VW is less than 3 years old, coverage starts on the date that the initial coverage period expires.
