Like other Volkswagen vehicles, the Passat didn’t originate as such, but rather went through an evolution of manufacturing and marketing. It has been known previously by model names such as the Dasher, the Quantum, and the Carat, among others.
This four-door, mid-size car offers a smooth, reliable ride that has maintained popularity throughout the decades for drivers looking for a dependable car. But in an industry where safety should be a given, the “extras” is what would help the Passat rank higher in its class. Nevertheless, its lower price point, spaciousness, and decent fuel economy, still make it competitive. It all comes down to what you want out of your ride.
One of the added advantages of the Volkswagen Passat is that it comes with the brand’s valued warranty that is good for 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. The current warranty is offered for newer models, while past models may have received the more standard 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty. Make sure you know what is included in the coverage of your manufacturer warranty and when it expires.
Too often drivers face vehicle repairs without realizing their warranty is no longer valid. To close this coverage gap, you can secure a vehicle service contract (VSC) to help with the inevitable repairs that may be necessary down the road. A VSC will include repair coverage for parts like the engine, transmission, and other major components of your vehicle. A CarSure plan will also include free roadside assistance and towing services as part of the inclusions.
By planning ahead, you can ensure vehicle coverage once your original plan is no longer valid. Plans are flexible and can be customized to fit your specific needs. It’s not if your vehicle will need repairs in the future, it’s when. You can avoid financial strain and stress by budgeting for this likelihood through a VSC rather than being responsible for repair fees that can be hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
Your vehicle’s eligibility will be based on the make, model, and year of your car. Get your questions answered and consider the benefits of a VSC by talking with one of our friendly customer representatives. Call today for a free quote.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it is not a warranty. A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not.
