Let’s take a quiz: How long do you think, on average, Americans keep a new car after they’ve purchased it?

  1. 10 years
  2. 6.5 years
  3. 3 years
  4. 8 years

If you chose B, you’re right! According to the IHS, people are keeping newly bought cars for an average of 6.5 years and the average age of a vehicle is 11.6 years. Pretty cool, right?

Here at Jack Daniels Volkswagen we think so, too. But it raises one important question: if most people keep their new car for 6.5 years, why do most bumper-to-bumper warranties only last 3 years?

Well, we have some exciting news to share with you — Volkswagen is now offering America’s Best SUV Bumper-to-Bumper Transferable Warranty for the all-new 2018 VW Atlas and Tiguan.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of Volkswagen Group of America stated, “We specifically designed and built the all-new Atlas and Tiguan for American customers. This warranty further addresses the needs of American buyers head on.
