Lifetime Powertrain Warranty


Peace of Mind. For a Lifetime.

650 VW Dealers in the United States. 11 in Minnesota. 5 in the Twin Cities. Only 1 with a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. That's The One and Only Volkswagen of Inver Grove.

We know our customers love their cars, and are keeping them longer than ever. Since our mission is Creating Customers for Life, we decided to take it a step further-give our customers peace of mind for life. That's why we provide a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty at no additional cost to everyone who buys a new Volkswagen and select used vehicles* from us here at Volkswagen of Inver Grove. It's something you won't find at any other Volkswagen dealer in Minnesota. Period. 

What is a Limited Lifetime Powertrain Warranty?

  • Simply put, it is a warranty for as long as you own your car that provides protection to the key component groups that are essential to keeping your vehicle running: the engine, transmission/transfer case/all-wheel drive assembly, and drivetrain assembly.

What Does it Cost?

  • There's no cost to you. It is free and included on every eligible vehicle sold at our dealership.
  • Eligible vehicles include all new, unused vehicles and most used vehicles current model year to 5 years old with less than 80,000 miles.*

How Long Does it Really Last?

  • Because our dealership is committed to providing both superior products and service to our customers, the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty lasts as long as you own your vehicle.

What Do I Have to Do?

  • Simply maintain your vehicle to the manufacturer's recommendations and we will pay for covered claims up to the generous limit of liability. For a single claim, we will pay up to the fair market value of your vehicle immediately before the covered mechanical failure. The total we will pay for all covered items can be up to the vehicle's purchase price.

Can I Do My Maintenance and Repairs Elsewhere?

  • Yes! While we would love to have you allow us to service your vehicle, we understand you may not always be able to get back to the dealership, and in some cases life takes us to a different city or state. That's okay! Simply maintain your vehicle at any ASE Certified repair facility and keep your receipts, and the warranty stays intact.

What If I Want More Coverage?

  • That's perhaps the best part of the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. Any of our vehicles that receive the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty qualify for the available Lifetime Comprehensive Wrap coverage, which would give you new vehicle warranty coverage for LIFE! Better yet, it's incredibly affordable. Don't need comprehensive coverage for a Lifetime? No problem! While you still receive the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty from us for free, you still get great discounted rates on stated term comprehensive wrap coverage.
