Dealing with car repairs post warranty is always a hassle, even more so in these uncertain times caused by coronavirus pandemic. If your warranty recently expired or is about to, the good news is Audi of America has your back. Whether you bought a new or certified pre-owned vehicle with a warranty that expires in the March 1 to May 31 interval, Audi will extend your warranty by three months.
This is an automated process, meaning you don’t have to take your car to the local Audi dealer to sign some papers. That’s great to hear in these unprecedented times when social distancing is essential to avoid spreading the virus furthermore. That being said, there’s a catch as if your warranty expires in the aforementioned interval due to mileage, Audi says it will not extend it.
On a related note, the automaker and its financial arm are extending the customer payment relief options through June 1. If you’ve been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and you own an Audi, you’re “strongly encouraged” to ask for payment assistance or extend the maturing lease agreement.
If you’re in the market for a car, Audi Financial Services offers 0% APR for 66 months on most 2019MY cars as well as 0% APR for 72 months on a few 2019MY cars. Not only that, but the first month’s payment is deferred for 60 days on new 2019MY and 2020MY vehicles. Returning Audi owners can take advantage of a $2,000 incentive on 2019MY cars and $1,000 on a 2020MY provided the current car is a 2009MY or newer.
Several other good deals are available on Audi USA’s section of the website dedicated to Special Offers. There are programs tailored to college graduates and first-time buyers, along with financial services for diplomats and military personnel.
