Volkswagen's Approved Used Car Scheme includes several tasty benefits. For example, anyone buying a certified vehicle can choose one extra – free of charge. This must be either twelve months VW Roadside Assistance, three years MOT protection, £100 worth of accessories, or MOTs for life. Motorists who want more than one option can pay extra. Alternatively, instead of the above, buyers can get £100 off the cost of a car service plan.

The Volkswagen Approved Used Car Scheme's MOT protection may be particularly valuable. It means that VW pay for essential repairs – required to pass an MOT - up to £750 including VAT. This could equate to £2,250 throughout the life of the three-year package. Eligible vehicles must be less than seven years old, regularly serviced by authorised dealers, and have covered less than 75,000 miles. Sounds fair enough.

Volkswagen's MOT protection scheme could - potentially - be more financial worthwhile than the MOT for life plan, which only equates to roughly £40 per-year. Also, because of the £750 annual cover, it may have a higher long term value than the breakdown insurance, accessories, or the service plan discount. Oh, and as it covers expensive repairs, it can make MOTs far less stressful too. Looks like used VW owners can relax.
