Consumer trends indicate that SUVs continue to dominate the automotive industry in North America.  In response to the soaring popularity of SUVs, CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona reports that the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan will now feature three rows of seating.  Preliminary indications are that up to four adults can be seated comfortably in this designated seven passenger SUV.  Volkswagen Dealers Southern California are excited about the addition of the third row!

For starters, you can carry more passengers with the addition of the third seat.  The second row can easily handle three occupants, with two children or car seats designated for the third row.  The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has been enlarged to accommodate the third row, and you will still retain cargo space behind the third seat.

Wait, There’s More To Like About The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan!

The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine.  It features an 8-speed automatic transmission.  The interior is comfortable and includes a touchscreen interface.  In addition to being larger than its predecessor, the exterior is appealing with a tall frame.  We’ve saved the best for last… with the purchase of a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan, you’ll receive a 6-year or 72,000 miles transferrable warranty!  You read that right… the warranty is transferrable, making it a great investment for resale.

Increase Your Gas Mileage For More Savings With These Suggestions From CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, July 19th, 2017 at 9:05 PM

If you’re like most savvy consumers, you’re always on the lookout for ways to save money.  What if we told you that you can save money and increase your gas mileage by implementing these strategies suggested by CardinaleWay Volkswagen, your Orange County Volkswagen dealer?

Lighten Your Load

Did you know that leaving heavy items in your vehicle can contribute to burning more fuel?  Or that a rooftop carrier, even if empty, can also be a culprit when it comes to fuel economy?  It’s true, you should take the necessary steps to lighten the load your car carries.  Doing so will mean that your vehicle won’t have to work so hard, and it will stretch your gas mileage.

Upgrade Your Vehicle To A Later Model

New vehicles generally have better fuel economy.  If your vehicle is more than five years old, consider trading it in for a later model if you want to increase your gas mileage.  See us first at CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona, as you’ll find the latest Volkswagen vehicles that can offer you significant savings.

Cold Weather Is Hard On Your Vehicle

In more ways than one, colder weather takes it toll on vehicles.  If you are serious about increasing mileage, only warm up your car for thirty seconds and then drive off slowly.  Letting your car run while warming it up on colder days is a waste of fuel.

Avoid Aggressive Driving Maneuvers

For those of you that are afflicted by road rage tendencies, find a way to be a calmer driver.  Slamming on the brakes, accelerating quickly or revving your engine can drain your fuel more than you realize.

Conserve Fuel With Regular Auto Maintenance

It’s true, following a regular schedule for auto maintenance can keep your car running smoothly, improve fuel economy and save you money.  Bring your vehicle to CardinaleWay Volkswagen for oil filter changes, tire rotations and any routine auto maintenance.  Even making certain that your tires are properly inflated can help increase gas mileage.

We value your business at CardinaleWay Volkswagen!  Your VW Riverside dealer features special deals on our website at www.CardinaleWayVW.com.  Visit us and talk to our Sales team, Finance staff and Service department for ideas on how you can save money.  It’s all about team effort!

By 2019 Volkswagen Vehicles Will Be Able To “Talk” To Other Cars

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, July 18th, 2017 at 9:00 PM

First, it was driverless vehicles coming soon, and now Volkswagen has made the announcement that by 2019 its vehicles will be equipped with pWLAN technology, allowing them to communicate with other cars.  We wonder what Herbie, the talking VW Beetle from Disney’s Love Bug movies would say about this! CardinaleWay Volkswagen, your Orange County Volkswagen dealer, is excited for what the future holds.

Exciting Applications Of pWLAN Technology For Vehicles

With the advancements made in pWLAN (public Wireless LAN) technology, the engineers at Volkswagen envision that its vehicles can be equipped by 2019 to communicate with other vehicles.  In fact, the pWLAN technology is designed to be able to communicate between vehicles no matter what make or model the vehicles might be.  So it’s quite likely we’ll be hearing more about this as other automakers jump on board with the pWLAN technology.  It’s not expected to add any significant cost to vehicles equipped with pWLAN technology.  The U.S. Department of Transportation fully supports the addition of pWLAN technology in future vehicles.

 –

What Types Of Communication May Be Possible At The Onset

Initially, we anticipate that communication could be limited to traffic warnings and local traffic information.  For example, it would be possible to receive information that an emergency vehicle is approaching.  It’s also within the realm of possibility that vehicles could receive real-time information about local traffic patterns or traffic signals. As pWLAN technology is perfected, it’s logical to surmise that communication capabilities between vehicles could be expanded even more.

Explore Your Options At CardinaleWay Volkswagen

For the latest Volkswagen models, visit CardinaleWay Volkswagen.  We’ll be glad to show you our new vehicles, ranging from the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible to the 2017 Volkswagen Passat.  We also have some great deals on quality preowned Volkswagen models.  Check out our website at www.CardinaleWayVW.com for a complete listing of our inventory.

Dos Logos Is Host To Special Events

In addition to charity and fundraiser golf tournaments at Dos Logos, the Club is also available for other special events.  Often, the Club is used for corporate events or meetings.  It’s also the perfect venue for weddings, and the Club has a staff of event specialists and caterers available to make your special day memorable.

Coming Soon: All-New 2018 VW Tiguan Compact SUV

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, July 13th, 2017 at 11:22 PM

The all-new 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan has been redesigned to feature a more sophisticated and roomy interior with flexibility and high-tech infotainment and driver-assistance features. The redesign has kept the Tig’s fun-to-drive character, making it a great all-round compact SUV. The 2018 Tiguan will arrive at our CardinaleWay Volkswagen dealership in Corona late this summer. We look forward to setting you up for a test drive when it comes in. In the meantime, stop by and check out the latest Volkswagen models, including the recently arrived 2018 Atlas. We’re your Orange County Volkswagen dealership.

Features
The new Tiguan is based on Volkswagen’s Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) architecture which gives it 58% more cargo space than the 2017 model. It is also 10.6 inches longer than the 2017 Tig. Even with its increased size, it is still  agile enough to handle city driving. The 2018 Tiguan SUV comes in S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium trim levels.

Safety
The #2018Tiguan features a rigid laser-seam-welded bodyshell with a crash-optimized and energy-absorbing front end and heat-formed steel center B-pillars that protect occupants in a crash. In addition to a full complement of airbags, the Tig features safety belt pretensioners. Electronic assistance includes Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). All Tiguan models also feature VW’s Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS). This advanced system automatically shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors and even switches on the hazard warning lights if the airbags deploy. The Tiguan is also the only vehicle in its class to offer the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, as a standard features on all models. This system helps prevent the often inevitable series of events that follow the initial impact.

Repair or Trade-In? How to Decide.

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 at 11:20 PM

Your car has broken down (again) and you’re looking at a high repair bill. You start to wonder if you’d be better off buying a new vehicle rather than fixing your current one. While there’s no clear-cut answer, #CardinaleWay Volkswagen, your Orange County Volkswagen dealership in Corona, recommends you consider this age-old formula: if the repair costs are more than the value of the vehicle or one year’s worth of monthly payments, it’s probably time for a new set of wheels.

The Costs of Wear and Tear
When cars reach the 90,000-100,000 mile mark, some high-priced repairs are unavoidable, even if you’ve taken great care of your car over the years. Rubber belts and hoses dry out and crack, rotors warp or wear thin and electrical parts start having trouble. The timing belt is another big-ticket item that generally needs to be replaced around 100,000 miles. Our CardinaleWay Volkswagen technicians also recommend replacing the water pump and other drive belts at the same time. These costs can add up quickly.

Why Buy New?
Here are the top reasons to buy a new vehicle.
1) You don’t want to worry about breakdowns. Just because you fix one problem, doesn’t mean another breakdown won’t occur. If you buy a new car, you’ll have at least a six year warranty, so you won’t be facing major repairs. Volkswagen offers a generous six-year or 72,000 mile warranty, whichever comes first.
2) You’re tired of trips to the repair shop.
3) You want something safer. Volkswagen has some of the most advanced safety features available today.

Come to CardinaleWay Volkswagen To See the Latest Models
Our service technicians are more than happy to inspect your current vehicle to help you determine whether it’s worth fixing or not. If you decide on a new vehicle, we can show you our extensive selection of new, certified pre-owned and used Volkswagen models. We can also tell you about our Volkswagen specials.

Easy Hike to a Beautiful Waterfall

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, July 10th, 2017 at 11:15 PM

On our days off, our CardinaleWay Volkswagen staff loves getting outdoors. We feel so fortunate to live in Corona, the gateway to the beautiful Inland Empire, where there’s easy access to stunning places such as Etiwanda Falls in Rancho Cucamonga.

Hiking to Etiwanda Falls
Etiwanda Falls in Rancho Cucamonga is an easy and pretty waterfall hike. It’s perfect for beginner or intermediate hikers. The waterfall destination and beautiful views along the way makes this one of the most popular hikes in the Inland Empire! This means it’s a good idea to get up early to hit the trail. An evening hike is also recommended.

For most hikers, the waterfall is about a 30-40 minute hike from the trail head with a round trip distance of 3.5 miles. Since it’s mostly uphill to the waterfall, you’ll get a really good lower body workout. We recommend using hiking poles for balance and stability, especially on the way down. They’ll take the strain off your knees and add a little upper body workout to your hike.  Along the trail, you’ll get stunning hilltop views of the city of Rancho Cucamonga below. If it’s a clear day, you can get some beautiful distant views. When you hear the sound of the falls, you’ll know you’re close to your destination. Once at the falls, you can find lots of places to have a picnic or a short rest under the tall trees before hiking back to your car. Remember to pack out your trash.

Come Say Hello To Our CardinaleWay Volkswagen Staff
When you’re in the market for a new vehicle, we hope you’ll come see our extensive selection of new, certified pre-owned and used vehicles at our CardinaleWay Volkswagen dealership in Corona. Our sales team loves helping you find the right car for your needs and our finance team can find a plan that fits your budget.  We also have some of the best factory-trained Volkswagen service technicians in the area. They’ll keep your VW running like new.

Volkswagen’s Andretti Rallycross Team Earns Three Podium Finishes!

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, July 6th, 2017 at 10:09 PM

Rallycross Team drivers Scott Speed and Tanner Foust, won first place and two second-place finishes in rounds three and four of the 2017 Red Bull Global Rallycross doubleheader. The team drives the Beetle GRC. To test drive the #2017Beetle, visit our CardinaleWay Volkswagen dealership in Corona. We’re your Orange County Volkswagen dealers.

Red Bull Global Rallycross
Tanner Foust had an easy win on Saturday and led for most of Sunday’s Final before a wheel failure stopped him from having a perfect weekend. Scott Speed came from behind to earn a pair of second-place finishes.

Foust set the fastest qualifying time and won every race, scoring maximum points on Saturday and getting his first win of the 2017 season.

Teammate Speed faced a mix-up in qualifying which put him in seventh place. He was able to recover to win his second-round Heat, and won in Semifinal B to earn a front-row starting position for the Final next to Foust.

“It’s really tough to be so quick all weekend and to have the track decide to take a bite out of the car at the end of the Final,” said Foust. “We dodged issues all weekend long and were super fast, so I’m bummed Sunday had to end like this. At least we know we’re quick, and I’m hoping to replicate most of this weekend at the next doubleheader in Ottawa.”

“Two second-place finishes are not where exactly where we want to be, but it’s good points for the championship, so we have to be somewhat happy,” said Speed. “Starting at the front of the pack is always so much easier, but we showed we know how to get through the field and make things exciting, so I guess that’s a positive too.”

Volkswagen’s Andretti Rallycross competed in another doubleheader weekend in Ottawa, Canada on June 17-18.

The ABCs of Shocks & Struts

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, July 5th, 2017 at 10:07 PM

Shock absorbers and struts are important in the control and handling of your vehicle. They basically hold the tires to the road. They also keep your vehicle from bottoming out when you hit a pothole or other uneven road surfaces. It’s important to keep your shocks and struts in top condition. We recommend you include a shock and strut check in your regular vehicle maintenance schedule. Our certified technicians at #CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona can do an inspection for you. We’re your Orange County Volkswagen dealership.

How Shock Absorbers Work
Shocks provide resistance by forcing hydraulic fluid through valves in the piston as it moves up and down. Resistance to the vehicle’s movement occurs because this fluid can’t be compressed because it’s an oil, so only a certain amount can be forced through the valves.

 –

How Your Driving Style & Conditions Affects Shock Life
Under normal conditions, wearing is gradual. However, a variety of factors have an impact on the rate of wear. Since shocks operate in a hostile environment, on the underside of your car, they come in constant contact with whatever’s on the road, such as ice, snow and gravel. The kinds of roads you drive on have a big impact on the life of your shocks. If you’re driving mostly in the city on straight smooth roads, your shocks are likely to last much longer than if you’re driving on winding, muddy gravel roads. For example, flying gravel can easily nick or damage the piston rod allowing grit and dirt to damage the piston seal.

Signs of Wear
There can be several signs your shocks and struts are wearing out. Do you experience three or more bounces when going over a railroad crossing? Does your vehicle rock back and forth after a sudden stop? Does your vehicle drift to the left or right when you apply the brakes firmly at high speed? Does your vehicle rock or sway from side to side when changing lanes quickly? Any of these signs indicate that you need to bring your vehicle in for service. Our CardinaleWay Volkswagen certified technicians can take care of your vehicle.

Bring Your Volkswagen to CardinaleWay Volkswagen for Great Service

Come to CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona where our certified technicians can take care of all your maintenance needs. While you’re here, you can also check out the latest models like the recently arrived 2018 Atlas or the popular Golf models.
