By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, May 25th, 2017 at 9:04 PM

The Volkswagen Neighborhood Talent Pipeline is a five week program is offered free of charge to qualified participants with the goal of preparing them for successful careers at Volkswagen Chattanooga. Our CardinaleWay Volkswagen dealership in Corona applauds this effort to prepare Chattanooga residents for the many new jobs at VW Chattanooga.
Mario Duarte, Senior Manager, Organizational Development for Volkswagen Chattanooga is excited that “Chattanooga 2.0 approached us with this proposal as Volkswagen Chattanooga is in the midst of our largest hiring push since we came to Chattanooga.” He went on to say, “We believe this program will help new hires arrive with a better idea of what it is like to work in a manufacturing environment, and therefore a better opportunity for success.”

Industry Certification
Participants who complete the program, will receive a Chattanooga Manufacturing Excellence Program (C-MEP) industry certification from the Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) at Chattanooga State, as well as an OSHA-10 certification. They will also get priority when applying for available entry level production jobs with Aerotek at #VolkswagenChattanooga, with an average starting wage of $14.50.

“To fill the new jobs created in our city, Chattanoogans must first have the chance to acquire the skills needed to land and retain these opportunities,” said Mayor Andy Berke. “Through this partnership with Volkswagen and Chatt 2.0, we are not only ensuring our workforce is diverse and prepared for good-paying, middle class jobs but creating a prototype to develop top talent in neighborhoods across our city.”

Five Signs You Need New Tires

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017 at 9:02 PM

Need New Tires

Even former race-car driver Johnny Unser says that checking tires is like going to the dentist – we put it off until we absolutely have to. But, did you know that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), tire failure causes around 11,000 car crashes each year? They both recommend inspecting your tires once a month. Our staff at #CardinaleWayVolkswagen in Corona also recommends making a monthly tire-check something you get in the habit of doing. We want to keep you safe on the road!


Here’s what to look for:
1. Bulges, gouges or cracks.
When a tire deflates, it gets bulges at the side. Bulges indicate low tire pressure or a slow air leak. If you see any cracks in the sidewall or anything that doesn’t look right, bring it to our CardinaleWay VW Service department.
2. Tread wear. You can use the old penny test. Place a penny into the tread with Lincoln’s head point down. If you can see the top of his head, the tread is too low. Most new tires have wear bars. These are bits of rubber woven into the pattern at a specific depth. If you can see the wear bars going across the grooves, it’s time to replace your tires.
3. Tire pressure. Tires deflate about one pound per square inch per month so make sure your tires are at the proper pressure every month. Low pressure causes them to wear out more quickly.
4. Temperature Changes. Tire pressure will drop in extreme cold. In summer, excessive heat builds up in the tire causing it to wear out more quickly.
5. Vibration. Pay attention to any type of vibration or thumping. If you think it’s coming from under the seats, your rear tires may need balancing. Vibration from the steering wheel could indicate suspension issues. If you’re not getting a smooth ride, take your VW to our CardinaleWay Volkswagen dealership for a check-up.


Is it time to replace your tires?

If so, it’s recommended to replace your tires in pairs or all four at the same time for better performance and a safer ride. Our CardinaleWay VW Service department will give you their best recommendation.

Volkswagen Debuts Its First Electric Crossover – I.D. CROZZ

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, May 18th, 2017 at 8:06 PM

I.D. CROZZ

The I.D. CROZZ is the first of the Volkswagen new I.D. family based on the Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB). The I.D. CROZZ delivers 302 horsepower, has a top speed of 112 mph with a range of 311 miles. Its battery can be charged to 80 percent in just 30 minutes with a 15kW fast charger. Volkswagen will start full production in 2020. Come to CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona to learn more and to see the latest VW vehicles in our showroom.

The I.D. CROZZ
The I.D. CROZZ is a four-door coupe (CUV) and sport utility vehicle (SUV) in one. It is also a zero-emissions vehicle with an exciting design and a new interior concept. The I.D. CROZZ shows just how diverse the range of future Volkswagen electric models is going to be.

The sporty I.D. CROZZ features electric all-wheel drive that can handle city driving as well as rough terrain. The I.D. CROZZ is powered by a 302 horsepower engine with a top speed of 112 mph. The cabin is generously proportioned and has an open feel, similar to the 2018 Tiguan.

VW Aims for High Volume Production
Volkswagen’s goal by the mid-2020s is for their electric drive systems to reach high-volume full production. Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management, Volkswagen Brand says: “By 2025, we want to have sales of pure electric vehicles up to one million units a year.  The I.D. CROZZ will play a key role in that. Production will start in 2020.”

I.D. CROZZ Can Serve As A Delivery Site
One of the more unique features of the I.D. CROZZ will be its ability to send and receive packages, while being driven around town. An agent is able to locate the car by GPS and is granted temporary permission to open the trunk via an app. The owner of the I.D. CROZZ is notified via an app or e-mail as soon as the parcel has been delivered or picked up. How convenient will that be?

VOLKSWAGEN e-GOLF NAMED 2017 AAA GREEN CAR GUIDE’S TOP GREEN VEHICLE IN COMPACT CAR CATEGORY

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, May 11th, 2017 at 8:02 PM

VOLKSWAGEN e-GOLF

The 2017 VW e-Golf SE earned the Top Green Vehicle award in the compact car segment in the 2017 AAA Green Car Guide. The e-Golf scored highest among the 21 compact cars reviewed. Attributes considered by the reviewers included: slalom handling, EPA emissions, ride quality and interior noise.

If It’s Spring, It’s Time for An Air-Conditioning Checkup

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 at 7:59 PM

The arrival of Spring means summer’s hot temperatures aren’t far away. #Spring is a great time to schedule a service appointment with our CardinaleWay Volkswagen Service technicians to make sure your vehicle’s air-conditioning system is operating properly. It’s a good idea to do this before you find yourself on a hot day sitting in a car that’s blowing hot air on you. Sometimes all your VW will need is a simple recharge with R-134A refrigerant. Our factory-trained Service technicians can easily determine what’s needed to ensure your air conditioning is working well before its summer in sunny Corona, CA.

What Are The Parts of An Air-Conditioning System?

The main components of a vehicle’s air-conditioning system include the compressor, condenser, evaporator, metering device and hoses. The refrigerant, R-134A is the chemical compound that works with the compressor to produce cold air. Cold air is produced when the R-134A is pressurized by the compressor’s spinning. The faster it spins, the colder the air.

Possible Air-Conditioning System Problems

The most common problem found in poorly operating air-conditioning systems is low pressure. This can be caused by lack of refrigerant, a leak in the system or a failing compressor. Our #CardinaleWayVolkswagen Service technicians can properly diagnose and fix any of these problems. Our technicians can also perform maintenance on your air-conditioning system such as adding lubricant to the compressor to prolong its life.

Let Our CardinaleWay Volkswagen Service Professionals Keep You Cool this Summer
We want to keep you cool this summer, so please make an appointment to have your air-conditioning system checked out by our technicians. And while you’re here, you can view our complete lineup of Volkswagens and set you up for a test drive. We can also tell you about our latest Volkswagen specials. We are your trusted Orange County Volkswagen dealership in the Corona area.  You can learn about our new, certified pre-owned and used models at our website: www.cardinalewayvw.com.
