Volkswagen Singapore has formally opened Das WeltAuto, its used car division wholly-owned and operated by the brand principal. Like its Alexandra and MacPherson dealerships in Singapore, Volkswagen operates as both dealer and brand principal in Singapore – the only setup of its kind in the world.
This comes very timely as the used car market in Singapore remains buoyant as new car sales continue to be sluggish. The used car transaction volume has ballooned from a low of 20,809 cars in 2006 to 63,005 cars in 2013. In the first 3 months of this year alone, 511 Volkswagen cars have changed hands in the used car market, compared to 508 new Volkswagen cars sold within the same period. This makes Volkswagen the 9th-most traded brand in Singapore, and it comes without a doubt that Das WeltAuto will want to capitalise on this.
To make buying a used Volkswagen an easier decision for prospects, Das WeltAuto has pulled out all of the stops to ensure a wholesome purchasing experience. Its new showroom at 1 Chang Charn Road, OC Building has a built-in floor area of 7,225 sq ft and will be able to house up to 30 cars at any one time.
What will set Volkswagen cars sold by Das WeltAuto apart from others in the market is its Certicate of Quality, which guarantees both mileage and service history. Furthermore, all used Volkswagen cars sold by Das WeltAuto are under four years old and have covered less than 90,000 km. They go through a stringent 115- point check and come with a minimum 12-month warranty. Servicing, grooming and touch-ups (if necessary) are all done before a car is finally approved for sale.
