How long is the warranty on the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas?

When you make a big purchase, you want to know that should anything go wrong, you won’t find yourself draining your bank account just to make it right. Certain product should be expected to last longer than others. How long do you expect your vehicle to be in sound order before parts start to wear down? According to Volkswagen, an SUV should last six years, or 72,000 miles, before any serious repairs arise. At least that’s what we can gather from the length of the 2018 Volkswagen bumper-to-bumper warranty. Read the rest of this entry »

What are the VW Arteon and Sedric 2017 Geneva Motor Show?

Some auto shows are more exciting than others, and it’s not surprising that the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland is often a bigger one for Volkswagen. After all, it’s closer to the corporate headquarters of our favorite German automaker, and we get to see what VW is planning for its home market. Though the U.S. does have an important impact on auto sales, we’re simply not as big for VW as European sales are. Naturally, the big plans start out there before VW takes the plunge on investing on meeting our very different regulations. This year, the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show brought some big surprises with both the VW Arteon and Sedric. What are they and why are they important? Read the rest of this entry »

2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parades and Events Spartanburg SC

They say everyone’s a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, but we like to think it’s because it’s a welcoming holiday.

Some people use this holiday as an excuse to down some green beer or whiskey, but there are also plenty of family-friendly events and parades to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2017 right here in Spartanburg SC.

What do all the VW dashboard warning lights mean?

When you first buy a new car, everything is perfect. Your odometer is low, with just a few miles traveling onto the lot or maybe from test drives at the dealership. You know there isn’t any hidden history or problems with your model. But if you don’t keep up with maintenance, and sometimes even when you do, there’s bound to be trouble at some point. If you’re lucky, you find out when a light comes on. If you aren’t, you hear a funny noise or things just don’t run as smoothly. So what do all the VW dashboard warning lights mean, and how important are they? Read the rest of this entry »

Difference between new Tiguan and VW Atlas

Volkswagen has made a bold choice: finally bring more SUV options to the lineup. If you don’t think that’s bold, you don’t know what the competition looks like. You see, SUVs have exploded on the American market in a way they haven’t necessarily over in Europe, which puts VW in an awkward position: is it a smart investment to create entirely new models for just one market? It’s not that America isn’t a large market (it is), but Volkswagen is much more popular over in Europe. Well, VW is taking the plunge and releasing both the new long-wheelbase Tiguan and the Atlas, but what’s the difference between them? Read the rest of this entry »
