Being able to depend on your car, knowing that it comes from a trustworthy source and having reliable, skilled and knowledgeable aftersales support is paramount to any ownership experience. Thankfully, these privileges are also enjoyed by buyers of pre-owned cars.
Since 2014, Das WeltAuto, Volkswagen Group Singapore’s pre-owned car dealership, has been curating, testing, certifying and delivering only the most robust pre-owned cars to customers.
The journey of every Das WeltAuto candidate from application to acceptance into the Approved Used Car Programme is a rigorous one. Take a pristine pre-owned 2017 Volkswagen Jetta Sportline now awaiting purchase at DasWeltAuto’s MacPherson Road showroom for example. It has taken pride of place under the lights, a proud graduand of the Das WeltAuto certification process.
Das WeltAuto also accepts vehicles that have been sold by parallel importers, so long as each vehicle’s ownership, repair, maintenance and servicing histories can be verified.
For potential customers, this means that when you buy from Das WeltAuto, you will have peace of mind that the car you have acquired has been properly cared for. Buyers will also be informed if the car they’re checking out has been repaired after being in a fender-bender.
Before Das WeltAuto sells a car, it undergoes a 115-point inspection to ensure that it meets the highest standards. During said inspection, any worn components will be replaced by genuine Volkswagen parts.
This inspection process includes an exhaustive visual inspection, where paintwork is finely inspected for damage and the bodywork is carefully scrutinised. On top of that, headlights, hazard lights, high and low beams are tested to ensure these essential parts are in good functioning order. Moving on to the finer bits of the car, the wiper blades, antenna and even the fuel door and cap are examined.
Under the bonnet, technicians pore over the oily bits to ensure they are all in excellent condition. From the car battery to its cables and clamps to the overall engine condition and air filters, every Das WeltAuto candidate is guaranteed to keep chugging along happily and healthily with its new owner.
After this, the car is examined for structural integrity and operability of all technological and safety equipment. Then, the suspension, brakes, tyres and wheels are tested and evaluated.
Finally, a comprehensive road test by an experienced Volkswagen technician completes the entire process. Having passed the final exam, the accomplished candidate is finally qualified to enter the Approved Used Car Programme, where it will one day be “adopted” by its “new” owner.
PEACE OF MIND, GUARANTEED
Das WeltAuto’s commitment to quality does not end when a car is sold, though. A minimum 12-month warranty for every Volkswagen vehicle is applied upon purchase, so you can always rely on the integrity of your car.
A variety of good deals await, and Das WeltAuto provides attractive financial offers with no hidden costs, administrative or additional fees, with everything explained clearly and transparently by the dealership’s experienced sales representatives.
With this assurance, you’ll be able to buy a car from Das WeltAuto and drive it home, secure in the knowledge that your latest pride and joy is going to be an excellent addition to your family.
