Called the People First Warranty, the coverage is fully transferable within the warranty period. So no matter how many times the vehicle changes hands in those six years, the warranty goes with it. Just as it does for Atlas and Tiguan, the warranty covers all powertrain and drivetrain components, including the engine, transmission, and 4Motion all-wheel drive system, when equipped. The new warranty replaces the 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty Volkswagen previously offered.

  Oh Yes, That Awesome Dealer-Built, 650 HP Ford F-150 Lightning Is Great at Burnouts For all those who thought the truck was pointless.Even if you don't totally buy into the idea of an on-road performance pickup, you can't deny this video of Hooniverse news editor Greg Kachadurian throwing the 1-of-2 Ford F-150 Lightning homage around an empty airstrip is hilarious fun. With very little weight over the rear wheels and a 5.0-liter V-8 engine up front, the supercharged truck breaks its back tires loose with ease.

VW is expanding its six - year , 72 , 000 - mile warranties to cover nearly every new 2018 Volkswagen sold. Transferring that last warranty , though, drops that coverage period down to five years or 60, 000 miles .

That leaves only the e-Golf, CC, and recycled last-gen Tiguan Limited un-covered by the new warranty, though the 2018 versions of those cars have yet to be announced.

Volkswagen Recalls 766,000 Cars Globally for Brake Issue .
Volkswagen is issuing a global recall for 766,000 cars due to an issue with anti-lock brakes, according to Reuters. Under some conditions, such as "when the driver over-steers, under-steers or slams on the brakes," the anti-lock brake system may fail. The issue can be fixed with a software update. Reuters reported Saturday that 385,000 VWs, Audis, and Skodas were being recalled in Germany. Now just five days later, 381,000 more cars globally have been added to the recall. No official details have been released yet by Volkswagen as to what cars are covered and what exactly this recall is for. The German automotive industry publication KFZ-Betrieb reports that the issue with the brakes "is a thermomechanical overload in the control unit for the ABS and ESP." Between two reports in KFZ-Betrieb, the cars affected are Caddy, Eos, Golf, Golf Plus, Jetta, and Scirocco from May 2008 to August 2010 and Skoda Octavias and Superbs from June 2008 to June 2009. Some 2009 Audi A3s will be recalled as well. According to Blich.ch, owners of the affected cars will start to be notified on July 17. Thankfully for Volkswagen, this issues looks like it can be fixed with a simple software update, which will be significantly cheaper than the Dieselgate recall. But any money spent on recalls is something Volkswagen does not need at this point. The automaker and all of its brands were just starting to turn profits again after the huge losses related to the diesel recall and buy-back program.
