Take Control of Future Mechanical Repairs

Volkswagen vehicles are known for quality and dependability, but even the most well engineered vehicles require repairs. Volkswagen Protection Plus Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP) is an extended warranty product that covers many costly vehicle components that can potentially fail over time.

Volkswagen Protection Plus MBP offers the assurance in knowing your vehicle is protected should an unexpected covered breakdown occur. Simply take your vehicle to any VW dealership in Canada or the continental United States, and our factory trained technicians will handle the rest. With several coverage levels, term lengths and deductibles, Volkswagen Protection Plus MBP can be customized to meet your needs.

Volkswagen Protection Plus MBP is also packed with additional benefits such as 24 Hour roadside assistance, a car rental allowance, and a claim-free reward.¹

Most importantly, Volkswagen Protection Plus MBP is fully backed by VW Canada. There really is no comparison to other independent warranty providers.
