VW Car Care

When buying a new or used car, it is important to consider the future, especially how you plan to maintain its care. If you are in the market for a VW in Tucson, you will be pleased to find out that Volkswagen offers several different car care packages, one of which is sure to fit your needs. By offering a range of plans, Volkswagen gives drivers a chance to help protect nearly every component of their vehicle.

Volkswagen Service Contract Plan: offers coverage protection up to 100,000 miles, depending on the age and mileage of your vehicle. Discuss the range of coverage levels offered with a Volkswagen dealer and buy protection that can be included into the final cost of your vehicle when you finance it.

Volkswagen’s Drive Easy Term Care Select program: provides a spectrum of services with the same $0 deductible, helping to make it one of the most comprehensive service plans in the United States. Coverage can include brake pads, batteries, headlamps and windshield wiper blades, among other things

Volkswagen’s Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Plan: helps drivers prepare for the unforeseen.

In addition, the plans include redeemable vouchers for discounts on any part, service, and/or accessory purchased at your Volkswagen dealership.

Volkswagen’s Ding Shield Service Plan: provides unlimited repairs for minor dings and dents using the latest technology. And repairs are done by trained technicians at the dealership, often while you wait.

What if you could combine the best features of a navigation system, roadside assistance, a vehicle diagnostic system, and personal concierge to let you know where the nearest In-N-Out burger stand is? It would be a revolutionary new product called Car-Net, and it is available on select models at Chapman Volkswagen of Tucson.

Free for the first six months, Car-Net includes location-based roadside assistance, Automatic Crash Notification, remote vehicle unlock, and Destination Assist for compatible factory-installed navigation systems. Unlike other in-car connected systems, Car-Net comes with all features enabled, and can be accessed three different ways: in-car, using the dedicated VW Car-Net buttons on the overhead console; by visiting the VW Car-Net Web Portal at; or through the mobile app, available for iPhone (and soon for Android). Len Luskin, Internet Manager at Chapman VW Tucson, says this new technology is comprehensive yet affordable.

“With Car-Net, you can get your car unlocked no matter where it or you are,” he said. “Your car could be in Connecticut with your college student, and you’re here in Arizona. With a phone call or by using the app, you’ve got your vehicle unlocked. What’s really amazing is everything is included. You won’t find this with any other car maker.”

After the six-month trial, customers of the Tucson VW dealer can purchase Car-Net in a variety of different options. A one-year subscription is $199; two years for $378; three years for $540, or month-to-month for $17.99. Some key features of the system include:

  • Service Appointment Scheduling
  • Remote Vehicle Status
  • Last Parked Location
  • Stolen Vehicle Assistance
  • Agent Destination Assist
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Automatic Crash Notification

“Car-Net is easy to use, and anyone can use it,” Luskin says. “You can download a demo of it and try it before you activate it. It’s such a perfect fit for Volkswagen owners. I really think it will be a huge success.”

New VWs for sale that include Car-Net are select 2014 trims of Jetta, Passat, Tiguan, CC, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, and Eos models. Stop by Chapman Volkswagen of Tucson to check out these Car-Net-equipped vehicles.
