Benefits of Pre-ordering a Car
How You Can Reserve Your Vehicle with Your Local Volkswagen Dealer
Here’s something that people rarely think about when considering a new vehicle: they are made in quantities. In that regard, new cars aren’t that different from a PlayStation 5 or a limited-edition pair of sneakers. The demand is often much higher than the supply, especially now with the microchip shortage that is slowing down production on new vehicles. All manufacturers are facing this challenge – not just your local Volkswagen dealer.
So, how do you get around this problem? When shopping for a new car, what is the surefire way to guarantee that you get the exact one that you want? The answer is simple: pre-ordering.
How Does Pre-Ordering Work at a Volkswagen Dealer?
Pre-ordering a vehicle is as simple as making a few clicks. Under the “New” section on our website, click on the Build & Reserve option. For this example, we will use the brand-new all-electric Volkswagen ID.4. This is one of our newest vehicles that customers can reserve by pre-ordering. Additionally, this option allows drivers to completely customize the vehicle how they like it, which is one of the biggest benefits of pre-ordering.
For those of you that are wondering why the ID.4 is up for pre-order, it’s because the first wave of them sold out in record time. The pre-order option lets Volkswagen know how many people want the vehicle and which parts of the country the most requests for it. This kind of information allows VW to appropriately allocate their resources so that they can fulfill customer demand at your local Volkswagen dealer.
What Are the Benefits of Pre-Ordering Through My Local Volkswagen Dealer?
Quite simply, it makes the car buying process much easier. No longer will you have to Google terms like “Volkswagen dealership near me” or “new car dealerships near me” looking for the exact Volkswagen that you want. Pre-ordering removes the wild goose chase element, allowing drivers to build a VW vehicle tailored exactly to their specific tastes.
This means that you get the exact color you want, the drivetrain you want, and all the features on your wishlist. Additionally, it means that you’re not paying for any features or trim level packages you don’t want, which is a common occurrence when buying a vehicle off the lot.
The pre-order option even allows you to track your vehicle as it’s taken through production, shipped across the ocean, and delivered to your local Volkswagen dealer. In the event your new car gets here and you have a change of heart – no worries – you’re only out the $100 deposit you put down to reserve the car. It can be sold to another interested buyer.
Carefree Coverage for Your Brand-New Volkswagen
One other additional benefit of pre-ordering your vehicle is that it will come with our Carefree Coverage plan. This applies to all 2021 and 2022 VW models. It breaks down as follows
2 yrs. Service – Scheduled Carefree Maintenance (2 years or 20,000 miles)
3 yrs. Help – Roadside Assistance (3 years or 36,000 miles)
4 yrs. Coverage – New Vehicle Limited Warranty (4 years or 50,000 miles)
5 yrs. Access – Car-Net Remote Access
In the event that you need VW parts or service, you can simply reach out to the VW service center at VW Clear Lake dealership. Your Carefree Coverage will appear in our records, making the process simple and easy.
