The Volkswagen Tiguan is the manufacturer’s SUV option and is one of the newer models introduced to the Volkswagen family. It’s historically scored high in safety and performance and is known more for its simplicity versus a suite of advanced driver assistance features.
The Tiguan still falls under the original basic warranty, which is valid for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Drivers also have the option of a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. However, new model versions, including the 2018 Tiguan, will come with the bumper-to-bumper warranty, good for 6 years or 72,000 miles.
But what happens when a warranty is expired and your vehicle needs repair? Drivers who do not have coverage face paying out-of-pocket costs for parts, labor, and associated fees like towing or rental car fees. This can quickly tally up to equal hundreds of dollars, which may not be included in the average budget. Enter the help of a vehicle service contract (VSC).
A VSC is available when your current manufacturer warranty is no longer valid. You can get the repair coverage you need for major parts, such as the transmission, engine, and air-conditioning unit, while also receiving benefits like roadside assistance and towing services. Each plan differs, so confirm which components are included in the plan you want.
You can get a free quote for a customizable plan by submitting the year, make, and model of your vehicle. If you have specific concerns about coverage or your vehicle comes with special circumstances like high mileage, let our customer service know, so we can find the best fit for you.
Vehicle repairs are inevitable, especially as your car gets older and gains more miles. With a VSC, you can be better prepared for the unexpected and receive the assistance you need to make the process as smooth as possible. We are here to help drivers find the vehicle repair coverage they need. Find out how a VSC can benefit you when you need it most.

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.
