Volkswagen Australia has cut service pricing on the majority of its new cars – and some of its used cars – in a move it says is designed to take on “Australia’s cost of living pressures”.
All Volkswagen Commercial vehicles purchased before June 30, 2022, will be offered with five years of prepaid servicing for the price of three.
Five years of servicing across the range will now cost the following:
- Caddy: $1500, (-$1448)
- Transporter and Multivan: $1600, (-$1739)
- Caravelle: $1450 (-$1539)
- Crafter: $1750 (-$1621)
- Amarok four-cylinder: $1900 (-$1761)
- Amarok V6: $2050 (-$1825)
When it comes to passenger cars, Volkswagen is including a three-year service plan with any T-Cross purchased using its in-house finance arm before June 30, 2022.
The same offer is being extended to 1.4-litre petrol versions of the Golf until September 30, 2022.
As is the case with a number of brands, most notable among which is Toyota, Volkswagen is pushing its certified pre-owned program.
Some pre-owned Volkswagens purchased before April 30, 2022, will be offered with two years of prepaid servicing if owners opt for a four-year 4Plus service plan.
Similar to its three- and five-year new car Care Plans, the service packages for older models are available in two- and four-year variants, including “basic essential service inclusions” over the program period as well as brake fluid changes and cabin filter replacement.
The offer is available in limited numbers (500 for Commercial, 1000 for passenger), and is available on cars that are more than four years old.
Using the offer, Volkswagen says four years of maintenance on a 2016 Caddy TDI320 will cost $921 instead of $1523.28, and a 2016 Amarok will cost $1039 instead of $1748.12.
On the passenger car side of things, a 2016 Golf Highline will cost $852 instead of $1448.92, and a 2016 Tiguan Highline will cost $843 instead of $1435.72.
