This warranty exceeds the standard 3-year/36,000-mile warranty featured on the company's passenger cars. Additionally, the warranty is fully transferable, so buyers of used Atlas and Tiguan models will be able to take advantage of it. Volkswagen also points out that this warranty is more generous than those of competitors including Ford, Honda, Nissan, and Toyota, which all have 3-year/36,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranties and 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranties. Chevrolet and Mazda also have the same type of coverage. However, it should be mentioned that Nissan covers its CVTs for 10 years or 120,000 miles.
Hyundai and Kia have a slightly longer bumper-to-bumper warranty than those other companies at 5 years or 60,000 miles. This is a bit lower than VW's, but the powertrain warranty lasts for 10 years or 100,000 miles. However, that warranty is not transferable to another owner.
