Volkswagen dealers guarantee the perfect condition of  
their vehicles and deal with warranty claims.

Legal guarantee for paint and

Volkswagen dealers grant a guarantee that covers the  
paint and bodywork of their vehicles.

corrosion in the bodywork:  
— A 3-year warranty covering defects in  
paint.  
— a 12-year warranty covering perforation corrosion. By  
"corrosion perforation" is meant a perforation in the  
sheet metal of the carriage which passes from the inner  
(hollow) part to the outer part.  
If, however, such damage occurs, any Volkswagen dealer  
will repair it without charge for labor and material costs.  
The guarantee will not be applicable in the following ca

that has not been remedied in time in accordance with  
the manufacturer's instructions.  
— In the event of perforations due to corrosion that are  
due to the fact that the repairs carried out on the  
bodywork have not been carried out in accordance with  
the manufacturer's prescriptions.

in exceptional cases to provide, to the extent necessary, the data

Data processing in the vehicle  
Electronic control units are mounted in the vehicle. The  
control units process data that e.g. For example, they receive  
from the vehicle's sensors, generate themselves or exchange

operation of the vehicle, others support driving (driver assistance  
systems) and still others enable comfort functions or additional  
functions of the infotainment system.

legislation, to consult the vehicle data themselves in isolated  
cases. Thus, in the event of an accident, they could e.g. For  
example, consult information registered in the airbag control unit  
that could help to clarify said accident.
