Our Expert Reviews

I'm a little shocked to discover that the last time I reviewed a Volkswagen Touareg was a full decade ago, before I had a teenager and the two corresponding faint parallel lines between my eyebrows to show for it (there are an equal number of smile lines worked in there, as well). While I'm only starting to review 2014 vehicles, the VW Touareg is starting the year off strong and might... Read full review for the 2014 Volkswagen Touareg

What a Great Investment

by frankmc98 from Manhattan, KS on April 29, 2016

There are not many cars that have the pluses that actually sold me on this vehicle. In fact, VW changed their maintenance offering after this model year so it was definitely a built in cost saver! 1.... Read Full Review

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
