Maintaining your vehicle
You’ve chosen the Volkswagen that’s perfect for you, invested time and money in bringing it home with you.
To protect your guaranteed minimum future value, your Volkswagen must be in an acceptable condition when you return it to us, and be within your stipulated kilometre limit.
Reasonable fair wear and tear from every-day use is only to be expected, but needs to stay within the guidelines set in your contract. You can find the specifics outlined in our Fair Wear and Tear Guide which can be downloaded below.
Volkswagen Choice FAQ
What models are available with Volkswagen Choice?
Volkswagen Choice is available across a range of new and demonstrator Volkswagen vehicles. You can talk to your local Volkswagen dealer for more specifics.
What finance terms are available with Volkswagen Choice?
You can use Volkswagen Choice in conjunction with any of our finance products, with terms ranging from 12 to 48 months depending on your needs.
What happens if I exceed the kilometre restrictions?
The kilometre limit is set at the start of your contract and should reflect how you are going to use your vehicle over the period of your finance contract. If you exceed it though, it's not a problem - you may be able to just pay an excess kilometre charge that will reduce the value of your Guaranteed Future Value.
What is the ‘acceptable condition’ of a vehicle?
This takes into account a vehicle’s age, kilometres and overall condition from mechanics to bodywork, electrics to upholstery - including the assumption of fair wear and tear (FWT) which is the amount of deterioration that would be reasonable. You can find more information about FWT by downloading our guide here.
Am I able to finance factory options, warranty and insurance under the Volkswagen Choice program?
Volkswagen Choice doesn't restrict you adding factory fitted options, warranty or eligible insurance products in your finance contract. To find out more, talk to your Business Manager about your options.
^The Volkswagen Choice Program consists of an option to require Volkswagen Financial Services to purchase your vehicle at the end of your Volkswagen Financial Services Chattel Mortgage, Consumer Loan or Hire Purchase for a value (known as the Guaranteed Future Value) determined by Volkswagen Financial Services and set out in your contract. The Guaranteed Future Value is not a representation by Volkswagen Financial Services as to the likely market value of your vehicle as at the end of your contract. The option is available on new and demonstrator Volkswagen vehicles for selected models only. Please verify with your dealership vehicles that are eligible for the program. If vehicles are not returned in an acceptable condition, as defined in the terms and conditions or exceed kilometre restrictions the Guaranteed Future Value will be reduced.
