Some time after October 2020.Where can I find my warranty information? What date of manufacture did the warranty change from ‘old’ to ‘new’.
Perhaps it is something I can only find online - meaning that they can change the terms at any time, regardless of manufacturing date. That would be highly unethical.
Page 297 in edition 11.2017Thanks for that phproxy. Sadly even in your web.archive link there is no mention of the 70%. Like George Orwell‘s 1984 they have probably rewritten history. It just says
‘Gradual reduction in battery capacity over time is integral to the nature of the component, and does not represent a defect under the terms of this guarantee, as long as the reduction in capacity is not in excess of the value specified for this vehicle in the owner's manual.’
No mention of the 70% in my manual. My GTE one of the first batch into the UK and registered the end of October and I’m convinced I read about the 70% before purchase.
I very much doubt they would remove the capacity warranty if the batteries were better! Sadly I am just as cynical here. I am still weighing up whether to get an ID.3, tricks like this do not play well in my mind.It begs the question? Have VW removed the 70% capacity warranty because their batteries are now better made and they know that they will not degrade below 70% in 100,000 miles OR they don’t want the expense of replacing any battery for capacity reasons.
I’m becoming increasingly cynical as I ‘Mature’ therefore I suspect the latter is the case 😢.
