Torque (Singapore) - - VOLKSWAGEN SPECIAL -

Be­ing able to de­pend on your car, know­ing that it comes from a trust­wor­thy source and hav­ing re­li­able, skilled and knowl­edge­able af­ter­sales sup­port is paramount to any own­er­ship ex­pe­ri­ence. Thank­fully, th­ese priv­i­leges are also en­joyed by buy­ers of pre-owned cars. Since 2014, Das WeltAuto, Volk­swa­gen Group Sin­ga­pore’s pre-owned car deal­er­ship, has been cu­rat­ing, test­ing, cer­ti­fy­ing and de­liv­er­ing only the most ro­bust pre-owned cars to cus­tomers. The jour­ney of ev­ery Das WeltAuto can­di­date from ap­pli­ca­tion to ac­cep­tance into the Ap­proved Used Car Pro­gramme is a rig­or­ous one. Take a pris­tine pre-owned 2017 Volk­swa­gen Jetta Sport­line now await­ing pur­chase at Das WeltAuto’s MacPher­son Road show­room, for ex­am­ple. It has taken pride of place un­der the lights, a proud grad­uand of the Das WeltAuto cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process. Das WeltAuto also ac­cepts ve­hi­cles that have been sold by par­al­lel im­porters, so long as each ve­hi­cle’s own­er­ship, re­pair, main­te­nance and ser­vic­ing his­to­ries can be ver­i­fied. For po­ten­tial cus­tomers, this means that when you buy from Das WeltAuto, you will have peace of mind that the car you have ac­quired has been prop­erly cared for. Buy­ers will also be in­formed if the car they’re check­ing out has been re­paired af­ter be­ing in a fen­der-bender.


Be­fore Das WeltAuto sells a car, it un­der­goes a 115-point in­spec­tion to en­sure that it meets the

high­est stan­dards. Dur­ing said in­spec­tion, any worn com­po­nents will be re­placed by gen­uine Volk­swa­gen parts.

This in­spec­tion process in­cludes an ex­haus­tive vis­ual in­spec­tion, where paint­work is finely in­spected for dam­age and the body­work is care­fully scru­ti­nised. On top of that, head­lights, haz­ard lights, high and low beams are tested to en­sure th­ese es­sen­tial parts are in good func­tion­ing or­der. Mov­ing on to the finer bits of the car, the wiper blades, an­tenna and even the fuel door and cap are ex­am­ined. Un­der the bon­net, tech­ni­cians pore over the oily bits to en­sure they are all in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion. From the car bat­tery to its ca­bles and clamps to the over­all en­gine con­di­tion and air fil­ters, ev­ery Das WeltAuto can­di­date is guar­an­teed to keep chug­ging along hap­pily and healthily with its new owner.

Af­ter this, the car is ex­am­ined for struc­tural in­tegrity and op­er­abil­ity of all tech­no­log­i­cal and safety equip­ment. Then, the sus­pen­sion, brakes, tyres and wheels are tested and eval­u­ated.

Fi­nally, a com­pre­hen­sive road test by an ex­pe­ri­enced Volk­swa­gen tech­ni­cian com­pletes the en­tire process. Hav­ing passed the fi­nal exam, the ac­com­plished can­di­date is fi­nally qual­i­fied to en­ter the Ap­proved Used Car Pro­gramme, where it will one day be “adopted” by its “new” owner.


Das WeltAuto’s com­mit­ment to qual­ity does not end when a car is sold, though. A min­i­mum 12-month war­ranty for ev­ery Volk­swa­gen ve­hi­cle is ap­plied upon pur­chase, so you can al­ways rely on the in­tegrity of your car. A va­ri­ety of good deals await, and Das WeltAuto pro­vides at­trac­tive fi­nan­cial of­fers with no hid­den costs, ad­min­is­tra­tive or ad­di­tional fees, with every­thing ex­plained clearly and trans­par­ently by the deal­er­ship’s ex­pe­ri­enced sales rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

With this as­sur­ance, you’ll be able to buy a car from Das WeltAuto and drive it home, se­cure in the knowl­edge that your lat­est pride and joy is go­ing to be an ex­cel­lent ad­di­tion to your fam­ily.
