Time to inspect your VW model's condition

While some wear and use is expected, our Wear & Use Guide helps make conducting your own self-inspection easy. We'll help you evaluate “normal” versus “excess” wear and use to determine what you can expect on trade-in day.

Inspection Process

  • Schedule a vehicle inspection* by going online or calling our inspection company, SGS at (800) 340-4080. An SGS agent will evaluate your vehicle for any excess wear and use
  • Once completed you will receive an inspection condition report itemizing any excess wear. View sample report.
  • Any excess wear will be billed on your Turn-In Settlement Invoice (unless you choose to repair the items prior to turn-in).
  • If repairs are completed, mail or fax the receipts to Volkswagen Credit before you return your vehicle to ensure proper credit to your account:
