CardinaleWay Volkswagen Advises You To Keep The Shine On Your Car

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 4:23 PM

Have you looked at your vehicle lately?  Does it look as shiny as it did when it was brand new?  If not, CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona explains how you can maintain your car’s paint job.  Volkswagen Dealers Southern California will tell you that your vehicle’s exterior appearance is the single most important factor for resale.  If your vehicle’s paint job is dull or there are visible dents or dings, people are less likely to give it a second look.

Wax Your Vehicle To Retain The Luster

The best way to protect your vehicle’s paint job is to wax it periodically.  Ideally, every six weeks is a good benchmark for giving your car a wax treatment.  Consistently applying a coat of wax to your vehicle will prevent corrosion or rusting.  It will also protect the vehicle’s paint job by providing a coating that will help repel insect residue, bird droppings, tree sap, grease or other contaminants from the road.

The Best Wax For The Job

There are several different types of waxes available and it is often difficult to determine their effectiveness.  Generally, paste wax is considered the best and safest wax you can use to return the sheen to your vehicle’s paint job.  The top brands of paste wax recommended by Consumer Reports include Mothers, Turtle and Meguiars.  When using paste wax, be sure to apply it evenly and avoid getting it on anything that is not your vehicle’s paint job.  Avoid using rags or towels for buffing.  Instead, invest in some microfiber towels and you’ll be amazed to see the difference.

CardinaleWay Volkswagen Accepts Trade-Ins

When you’re ready to purchase your next vehicle, consider bringing your car to CardinaleWay Volkswagen for a trade-in deal.  Remember to present your vehicle in its best condition — a shiny exterior and clean interior.  CardinaleWay Volkswagen has an outstanding selection of the latest Volkswagen models and preowned Volkswagen vehicles for you to consider.  Perhaps you’d be interested in the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle or the 2017 Volkswagen Passat.  Let our friendly Sales team help you find the perfect vehicle that will fit your family’s lifestyle and budget.

Performance

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf R cranks it up a notch with a 2.0-liter, 4 cylinder engine with 292 horsepower and 6-speed DSG automatic transmission.  That’s not all that it has going in its favor.  The “R” in its name surely must stand for the Race mode that can be switched on to amplify its performance.  You’ll experience the thumping power as its kicks into high gear.  Be forewarned, driving just became fun again!

Technology

You’ll love the twin screens in the cockpit providing all the information you can possibly want.  There’s the 12.3-inch Active Info display and the 9.2-inch Discover Pro system with Apple CarPlay capability.  Executed flawlessly, Volkswagen’s technology takes you anywhere you want to go.

Versatility

All-wheel drive (AWD) is the smart choice for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf R.  Ride in comfort as it transitions easily between back country roads, highway driving or curving mountain byways.  You’ll also discover that AWD is great on rain-slicked roads or a wintry mix.  The 19-inch alloy wheels will traverse well and get you where you need to go.

CardinaleWay Volkswagen: When You’re Pulled Over by The Police

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 at 8:48 PM

No one likes getting pulled over by the police for a moving violation.  Let’s just admit it — we grumble because it’s an annoying inconvenience, humiliating and oftentimes costly.  Volkswagen Dealers Southern California and CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona offer the following advice for how you can effectively deal with the police if you are pulled over.

If You See A Flashing Red Light Behind You, Pull Over

You know you’re guilty of exceeding the speed limit when you notice a flashing red light in your rearview mirror.  Don’t try to feign surprise with the “Who me?” look on your face.  Put your turn signal on and immediately pull over to the side of the road.

Keep Your Hands On The Steering Wheel

Don’t get out of your vehicle.  Remain calm and keep both hands in plain view on top of your steering wheel.  Wait for the officer to approach your vehicle and then roll down your car window.  It’s best not to cop an attitude, as arguing will get you nowhere.  Instead, be respectful and do exactly as the officer instructs you to do.  Wait until the officer asks you to produce your driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance.

If You Only Get A Warning, Thank The Officer

Flirting with an officer is never a good idea.  Bribery is definitely prohibited.  Crying and blubbering is even worse.  However, sometimes saying, “I’m sorry” is precisely what our mothers used to call the magic words.  If you get lucky and the officer lets you off with just a warning, be sure to thank him or her.

Sign The Citation And Pay Your Fine

If you are ticketed for a moving violation, sign the citation that the officer presents to you.  Read it as it will inform you of the charge, cost of the fine and where to mail in your payment.  Alternatively, if you wish to contest the violation, the citation will tell you when and where you can appear in court.

Merge Into Traffic And Obey The Speed Limit

When the officer says you are free to go, put your turn signal on and merge safely into traffic.  Be sure to pay attention and observe the speed limit.  Place the citation in a safe spot and don’t forget to pay your fine!

CardinaleWay Volkswagen Wants To Do Business With You

Come to CardinaleWay Volkswagen, where we value your business.  We have an impressive selection of the latest Volkswagen models and preowned Volkswagen vehicles.  From the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta to the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle, you’re sure to find the perfect vehicle.  We want to be your one-stop dealership!

Volkswagen Bids Adieu To The VW Touareg In The U.S.

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 17th, 2017 at 6:22 PM

In the latest development from the folks at Volkswagen, we learn that the VW Touareg will be discontinued in U.S. markets.  The 2017 VW Touareg models will be the last of the line.  Orange County Volkswagen dealers, including CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona, encourage you to check out the remaining new VW Touaregs before they’re gone.

A Marketing Plan That Went Awry

Sometimes it’s difficult to predict what consumers want, as any savvy marketing expert will tell you.  Such was the case with the Volkswagen Touareg, marketed as a luxury vehicle with a steep price tag.  Unfortunately for Volkswagen, that marketing strategy backfired.  Only 1,630 Touaregs were sold in the U.S. during the first half of 2017. The probable reason for lagging sales of the VW Touaregs is that high-end competitors offered their comparable SUVs for considerably less.

What’s In Store For Volkswagen

Volkswagen plans to compensate for the loss of the Touaregs by introducing a compact SUV in the U.S. in the near future.  It’s also expected that the new 2018 VW Atlas and 2018 VW Arteon models will be well-received.  Not to mention, Volkswagen will soon be rolling out a full line-up of exciting EVs (electric vehicles).

CardinaleWay Volkswagen Is Here For You

We care about what our customers want.  CardinaleWay Volkswagen is here for you and we’d love to hear from you.  Drop by and let us know what we can do better to make your shopping experience with us more meaningful.  You’ll find that our Sales team, Finance department and Service technicians are top notch.  Feel free to browse our dealership lots or test drive one of the latest Volkswagen models.  Perhaps you’d like to try out the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle or the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan.  We also have an impressive selection of preowned Volkswagen vehicles.  Ride in comfort and style with a Volkswagen, German engineering at its best.

CardinaleWay Volkswagen Offers Some Great Audio Book Suggestions

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 6:19 PM

You’re stuck in traffic and it’s going to be a long commute to work. Or, during a summer road trip, the kids have asked for the umpteenth time, “Are we there yet?”  Sure, you can crank up the music or listen to talk radio, but Volkswagen dealers Southern California and CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona have an even better solution to beating boredom during road trips and tedious commutes.  Why not listen to an audio book?  It’s a great way to unwind and it’ll make the miles go by faster.

Consider Any Of These Audiobooks

Camino Island, the latest novel by John Grisham.  This one is not Grisham’s usual legal thriller, but is a fascinating story nevertheless involving rare books.  Thoroughly enjoyable and fast-moving.

For families, a great choice is The Chronicles of Narnia, the classic novel by C. S. Lewis about a magical wardrobe and the adventures of Lucy and her siblings.  Who can forget Aslan the wise lion?  Sure to be a family pleaser.  Or, consider Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, a timeless tale that possesses charm and merriment.  You’re sure to find a kindred spirit in Anne Shirley.

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis is a moving story told by author J.D. Vance.  He examines the Appalachian culture and how it affected him and others.  Despite his cultural disadvantages, he rose above it and graduated from Yale Law School.

If you’re looking for an insightful business audiobook, try listening to Never Split the Difference:  Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It by Chris Voss, a former FBI negotiator.  Listen to his negotiating techniques that you can easily apply in your business or even in your personal relationships.

For guilty pleasure, why not pick up the audio book The Identicals, a romance-comedy by the delightful author, Elin Hilderbrand?  It’s about two adult twin sisters, Harper and Tabitha.  You won’t be bored, we promise.

Finally, for all of you horror fans, author Stephen King is the master.  There’s so many of Mr. King’s titles to choose from, but why not start with It?  There’s a reason people have a deep-seated fear of clowns.
