What features of Volkswagen Car-Net are free for five years?
Remote Access services are free for the first five years of Volkswagen vehicle ownership. Car-Net Remote Access includes various ways of interacting with a Volkswagen vehicle from a distance. For example, drivers can unlock or lock their vehicle or start up their vehicle from a distance using the mobile app. They can also view a remote vehicle status display to check their vehicle’s fuel level, mileage, and door and window statuses. These services are free of charge for the first five years, and you can continue the services after that if desired.
What safety features are available with Volkswagen Car-Net?
You can check out Volkswagen Car-Net safety features here. The newest feature, DriveView ™ could be considered a convenience or safety feature but judging from the fact that enrolling can get you discounted automotive insurance rates, we will call it a safety feature. DriveView is a program that shows you your driving habits, such as how hard you brake and when you use excessive speed. You get an overall driving score and possible insurance discounts by enrolling.
