The Volkswagen Jetta has been consistent in popularity since its debut in 1979. It has been marketed under several different names over the years, but in 2014, the Jetta emerged as Volkswagen’s best-selling model with over 1.4 million sold. In 2015, Volkswagen introduced a newly redesigned sedan that included aerodynamic improvements and several interior elements drivers still appreciate today.
An additional feature that lends to the vehicle’s allure is its fuel economy, which is 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. The Jetta has also introduced technology updates, such as Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality, while remaining comfortable and reliable for those who have been loyal fans of Volkswagen.
For those buying a new Jetta, the manufacturer warranty is valid for 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever occurs first. It’s also transferrable from car buyer to car buyer. This standard warranty exceeds most of its competitors whose warranties expire after 3 years /36,000 miles or 5 years/60,000 miles. But when the warranty expires, it can be costly when repairs are necessary. A major vehicle part, such as the engine or transmission, can easily cost several hundred dollars when you take it to the shop. This steep fee is most likely an unforeseen cost and can cause unnecessary financial stress.
With a vehicle service contract (VSC), you can secure a better peace of mind. It allows you to have vehicle repair coverage set up for when your original manufacturer warranty expires. For many key vehicle parts, you don’t have to worry about unexpected costs, because they’ll be covered under your policy.
For example, the CarSure Comprehensive plan includes coverage for the engine, water pump, and transmission, among others. If you have questions about what your vehicle qualifies for and what is specifically covered, speak with one of our customer service representatives who will be happy to assist. Your free quote will be based on the make, model, mileage, and year of your vehicle. Even if your current policy is still in effect, it’s a good idea to plan for the unexpected down the road. You can seamlessly transition from your Volkswagen manufacturer warranty to a VSC so there is no gap in coverage.

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.
