How Volkswagen Lee’s Summit is Helping Customers Financially Right Now

One thing is certain: for the past 6 weeks Kansas Citians have made a huge effort to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the stay home directives lift and people carefully adjust to social distancing outside of their homes, many remain concerned about their economic well-being.

According to the Kansas City Business Journal, over 392,000 workers filed initial unemployment claims from March 15th – April 19th. Fortunately, Volkswagen Lee’s Summit has a financial relief special for those who need a new or used car right now, as well as a program for customers who are currently driving a Volkswagen.

Auto dealerships are considered essential in Missouri because people, especially first responders, grocers, pharmacists, doctors, and other public service workers, still need to travel to do their jobs safely and reliably.

For the past 7 weeks Volkswagen Lee’s Summit has been offering virtual walk-arounds of vehicles, online and over-the-phone payment quotes, no contact service and repair appointments, home delivery programs, and, of course, heightened sanitization of and social distancing within their dealerships to keep customers and employees safe.

As part of their current payment relief program, Volkswagen Lee’s Summit is offering zero dollars down, zero percent interest for 72 months, and no payments required FOR months, and then Volkswagen Lee’s Summit will make two payments for customers, allowing for six months no car payments on approved credit.

Their assistance program extends to used cars as well, including 0% interest for 60 months and no payments required for four months, on approved credit. So even during a pandemic, now is an ideal time to upgrade your car and get relief from making a car payment.

“We know our community has been impacted,” said Jeff Davis, Director of
Operations for Volkswagen Lee’s Summit, “We want to help them in a meaningful way during this time of need.”

If you purchase a Volkswagen in May, Volkswagen Lee’s Summit has great news for its customers! Volkswagen will provide up to six payments for VCI customers who are involuntarily unemployed due to economic reasons, including, but not limited to, lockouts, individual and mass layoffs, business failure or bankruptcy, or COVID-19.

“No other manufacturer is doing anything close to this,” says Davis. “The Volkswagen Pledge is something I am extremely proud of and so happy that we can help our customers in these uncertain times.”

While right now might not seem like the time to buy a new or used car, it might actually be the best time to make such a purchase. Not only can you take advantage of great financing deals, but almost the entire transaction can be done from your own home. You can browse their inventory online so you and your family can decide on a vehicle that’s right for you — on your own time.

They not only have Volkswagen models, but many others as well in their used car inventory. You can narrow your search based on the make, model and price point you want to see. If you find a vehicle you want, you can chat, text or call to learn more about the car and how you can safely test drive it.

Fox 4 reports that with COVID-19 cases declining in KC, leaders are working to slowly open other non-essential businesses to help the economy improve as Kansas and Missouri businesses slowly reopen.
