Warranty Period

If there is remaining coverage from the Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty or applicable emissions warranties at the time of Certified pre-owned purchase, the Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty, applicable emissions warranties, and (if applicable) the TDI Extended Emissions Warranty provide coverage on the Certified pre-owned vehicle until the expiration of those warranties. The Audi Certified pre-owned Limited Warranty coverage begins upon expiration of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty and expires five (5) years after the Original in Service date of the vehicle.

If the Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty has expired at the time of Certified pre-owned purchase, the Audi Certified pre-owned Limited Warranty expires 12 months after the Audi Certified pre-owned purchase date. 2 If there is remaining Audi Care coverage at the time of Certified pre-owned purchase, the Audi Certified pre-owned vehicle may benefit from the remainder of Prepaid Scheduled Maintenance. For Audi R8 vehicles, an authorized Audi dealer with the designation Audi R8 Certified Point or Audi R8 Service Point must perform these services. For Audi Q5 hybrid components an authorized Audi dealer with the designation Audi Q5 hybrid certified dealer must perform these services.

Audi Care coverage stays with the VIN and can be utilized by subsequent owners. (California - Audi Care plans are refundable in the State of California. In the event that a refund claim is made for unused portions of coverage, the plan coverage will be removed from the vehicle and the subsequent owner must purchase another Audi Care plan in order to reinstate coverage.
