Message From Our Editor

What we love about Volkswagen Credit

Volkswagen Credit does a lot right. You can easily view inventories for local Volkswagen dealers online and view the prices for the cars before you ever set foot on a dealership’s lot. You can even buy your vehicle online, skipping the stressful sales and negotiation process. Rates are also competitive and there are incentive programs that you can use to save money on your purchase.

What could Volkswagen Credit do better?

Like any lending program tied to a certain brand of car, the obvious drawback is that you can’t use Volkswagen Credit to buy a car other than a Volkswagen. If you’re not 100% sure that you want to buy a Volkswagen, you’ll probably want to get a loan that doesn’t have that restriction.

Volkswagen Credit also has a reputation for poor customer service, which is something that can be annoying if you ever have questions or difficulties with your loan. An example of this is that the interest rate and other terms for your loan aren’t always clear upfront. You may have to visit a dealership to get the full details of your loan, which eliminates some of the benefits of the company’s online shopping portal.

Volkswagen Credit‘s backstory

Volkswagen is a German automaker founded in 1937. The company is one of the largest car makers in the world and sold the most vehicles worldwide in 2016 and 2017. The company opened Volkswagen Credit in 1981 to help customers get financing to purchase a Volkswagen.

The Verdict

 If you know for certain that you want to buy a Volkswagen, it makes sense to check with Volkswagen Credit to see the loans you can qualify for. Just keep in mind the company’s reputation for poor customer service. If you’re still shopping around to decide the type of car you want to buy, opt for a different lender.
