Volkswagen is a German automotive manufacturer. It was founded by the German government in 1937 to mass-produce an affordably priced ‘people’s car’. Today, Volkswagen cars are known for being luxurious, safe, and feature-packed. Apart from the iconic Volkswagen Beetle, some other popular Volkswagen cars in Malaysia include the Volkswagen Golf, Passat, Polo, and Jetta.
Volkswagen cars are made in Germany and exported to other countries worldwide. In Malaysia, Volkswagen assembles Completely Knocked Down (CKD) Volkswagen cars at the Hicom Automotive Manufacturers plant in Pekan, Pahang.
According to the ReliabilityIndex’s 2019 survey, Volkswagen emerged as the 25th most reliable car brand out of the 40 car manufacturers. The survey revealed that 40 percent of owners had engine issues in the Volkswagen Golf. Meanwhile, owners with other Volkswagen models of three years and above required major repairs.
Volkswagen cars that are five years or older are entitled to the Volkswagen Cares Repair Packages that cover both shock absorbers and brakes. Maintenance costs incurred after the warranty period range between RM459* and RM3,400*.
*Estimates are based on service repairs without major engine or gearbox overhauls.
The road tax for a Volkswagen depends on the engine displacement in cubic centimeters (cc). The road tax for a Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace (1395cc) costs RM70, while the fee for a Volkswagen Passat (1798cc) costs around RM280.
Volkswagen vehicles depreciate by 40 percent on average in the first three years after purchase. However, the five-year depreciation rate for a 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is predicted to be 51 percent. Its value is expected to drop by around RM52,220 in five years, while its current price ranges between RM50,170 and RM102,390. This varies based on factors including the car’s condition and mileage.
The insurance rate is calculated based on the market price of your car, coverage type, location, engine capacity, and your No Claims Discount (NCD). For example, a Volkswagen Passat (3597cc) in Peninsula Malaysia with zero percent NCD cost roughly RM2,055.30* to insure annually, compared to a new model which costs RM5,106.56*.
*Based on estimations of used and new car price.

4Motion is the brand name Volkswagen uses for its four-wheel-drive (4WD) system. Similar to other 4WD systems, the 4Motion system can switch between two-wheel-drive (2WD) and 4WD usage depending on the situation. When better grip is needed in slippery conditions and off-road, the 4Motion system can send power to all four wheels to improve traction.
