I'm about to pull the trigger on a new 2019 Atlas. Our current vehicle was purchased new in 2003 - 15 years ago. This isn't an unusual length of time for us to own a vehicle, the one before hat had over 300,000 miles on her before we passed it on - I still see it around town now and then. Anyway, VW's 6-year/100k mile factory warranty might be the best in the business, but we are interested in purchasing the 10-year/150k mile Drive Easy plan because we plan on keeping the new Atlas as long as possible.
So far, two dealers have told me they didn't offer this plan and another said they would start offering it this year. As far as cost to purchase goes, I have no idea what it will (or should) cost to add this plan to our purchase contract - like all things sold by the dealer, I'm sure there is a certain amount of negotiating room on the price. There are three different levels of protection available, Power-Train, Gold and Platinum with $100 and $250 deductibles.
With the factory warranty still in full force on the Atlas, I know no one has had to use the Drive Easy plan, but if anyone in the industry or as a purchaser can share their knowledge or buying experience with the rest of us, please post.
