As reported in May, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has launched Das WeltAuto in Malaysia, Volkswagen’s global used car programme that offers certified used cars from a trusted source. Think BMW Premium Selection and Mercedes-Benz Certified.

VPCM says that all models and brands are accepted for trade in, not just VWs, and cars will undergo a “strict and through 133-point check conducted and verified by Volkswagen Master Technicians.” Das WeltAuto cars come with a one-year extended warranty and one-year roadside assistance. In addition, Volkswagen cars older than five years get to enjoy Volkswagen Care Plus benefits.

“What makes Das WeltAuto different from other used car channels is that you can expect the same exceptional level of service as a new car purchase experience from a dealer you can trust, with experienced sales staff who will provide the best advice and maximum transparency. All this from a brand you can rely on – and most importantly, a product you can trust,” said Erik Winter, MD of VPCM.

As part of the Das WeltAuto promise, only genuine parts are used on the certified vehicles, and they are accident-free and come with complete proof of service at authorised Volkswagen service centres. Das WeltAuto is currently available at four VW dealerships: VW Puchong, VW Gombak, VW Alor Setar and VW Juru in Penang.
