"The My VW App is part of Volkswagen’s digitalisation strategy and is another way in which we are bringing the full Volkswagen experience to our customers."App users are able to download the app for free from any Android or Apple device. Once downloaded, the user will be able to log their vehicle details and personalize their profile. The app will work for any VW vehicle owner, even if the vehicle was purchased as a second hand deal. According to Volkswagen's Siyanga Madikizela, as long as the vehicle was purchased at a Volkswagen approved dealership, the app will work.
“As Volkswagen, we want to stay abreast of technological advancements whilst making it simpler to own a Volkswagen vehicle which is the crux of this app. Not only does the app allow drivers to interact with the Volkswagen brand, it has also made it simpler to book a test drive, apply for vehicle finance, use your mobile GPS to locate the nearest service centre as well as book a service,” explains Thomas Schaefer, VWSA Chairman and Managing Director.Madikizela adds that the company is in the throws of creating another version of the app. "We continuously strive to add value to our customers' lives, and the app is an ideal platform to do so." VW has not yet linked the app to any insurance companies, however they have been in talks with the relevant people and it is on the cards. If you are a VW vehicle owner, why not download the app and give it a try.
