We check out Das WeltAuto, the Volkswagen Group's used car programme designed to offer the same exceptional level of experience as a new car customer.
When buying a big ticket item, one should always be careful. In Singapore, where big ticket items such as cars are ridiculously expensive, it's normal to sway towards the cheapest deals. But is a cheap buy your best bet? Cars are complicated mechanical and electronical machines, and can be very expensive to fix when things go wrong. A bad car, also known as a lemon, is what you'd want to stay away from.
It's also no industry secret that some used car dealers prioritise profit over customer satisfaction. We're sure you've heard of the many cases whereby used car dealers lie about the condition of a car, or cheaply fix one before it's posted on the used car market.
You're already blowing a wad of cash on something that's meant to improve travel convenience in your life. Would you want to end up driving a car, which is going to spend most of its life in a workshop instead of on the roads? Would you dare drive a car that comprises your safety and the lives of everyone on board?
If your answer is yes, you might want to seriously reconsider car ownership. After all, we should never be penny-wise and pound-foolish.
Das the way to go
However, if you're sensible and don't mind forking out a tiny bit more for a peace of mind, you might want to start browsing for your next used car at Das WeltAuto. Launched worldwide in 2010 by the Volkswagen Group, Das WeltAuto is a used car programme designed to offer the same exceptional level of experience as a new car customer, giving you complete purchasing confidence. The programme made its way to Singapore in 2014 and has since been steadily gaining popularity.
A first-class pre-owned vehicle brand, Das WeltAuto is also a complete programme allowing you to fully experience top German technology, Volkswagen Group's standardised process, systematic after sales solutions, and worry-free quality warranty.
Das WeltAuto has now succeeded in providing drivers with one-stop pre-owned vehicle experiences in 24 countries.
Thorough to the bone
Every used car for sale at Das WeltAuto goes through a thorough multi-point check by skilled, Volkswagen-trained technicians before it can become a Das WeltAuto used car. Das WeltAuto also verifies that the car's mileage is correct and ensures that the vehicle's identity matches with the Land Transport Authority of Singapore's records.
