Which Popular Dog Toy Is Based On A Volkswagen Suspension Part?

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 at 8:41 PM

Are you into trivia and fun facts? Our CardinaleWay Volkswagen dealership just had to share this one. Who knew that VW also made dog toys? Well, not exactly, but a VW suspension part was the inspiration for the Kong, a dog toy favorite. Come check out the suspensions on the new VW models we have at our Volkswagen dealership conveniently located in Corona. It’s easy to set up at test drive online at www.cardinalewayvw.com.

The Kong and VW
Have you ever thought the Kong resembled some kind of car part? Here’s the origin story of the Kong from its founder, Joe Markham. Markham had a police dog, Fritz, who was well-trained, except when it came to his destructive chewing habits. Fritz loved to chew on rocks, sticks and other harmful objects rather than the conventional dog favorites such as shoes, purses or other leather items. Fritz’s teeth were beginning to wear down.


While working on a VW Bus one day, Joe started throwing out car parts to Fritz to lure him away from chewing on rocks. Fritz was immediately entranced with a rubber suspension part and brought it over to Joe to play with. The erratic bounce and toughness of the rubber inspired Joe.  And the chewability index of the rubber was off the charts. This part was the rubber suspension bump-stop on a Volkswagen Type 2 rear suspension, designed to make a torsion-bar suspension on a light, rear-engined van a bit less jarring. The rest is history. Markham and Fritz would like to thank Volkswagen for coming up with this great dog toy design.

If You’re Looking for a Smooth Ride, Come to CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona
In addition to being the inspiration for a popular dog toy, VW also has many pet-friendly vehicles. Come see us or visit our website to learn more about our complete lineup of #Volkswagen models.

How to Avoid Hot Weather Car Troubles

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, June 21st, 2017 at 8:32 PM

Did you know that proper car care can save up to $1,200 a year in emergency repairs? Here are some easy tips that will help you avoid the most common warm weather car issues. Our #CardinaleWayVolkswagen service technicians are here to help. We’d like to be your Orange County Volkswagen dealer of choice. It’s easy to schedule an appointment with our service department online at www.cardinalewayvw.com.



1) Flat Tire
Did you know there are more flat tires during summer? This is because of increased construction and more traffic on the road. Make sure you know how to fix a flat yourself and make sure to check your tires regularly to avoid a blowout or flat.
Prevent It: Set a reminder in your phone to check your tire pressure once a month. The inside panel of the driver side door has a label with the recommended PSI (pounds per square inch). Also, check the treads to make sure they’re not worn out. Remember to check the air pressure in your spare tire as well.

2) Car Overheating
Keep an eye on the temperature gauge and look out for an “engine overheating” message or lit radiator icon on your dashboard. You may also notice steam coming from the hood.
Prevent It: Check your coolant levels at the beginning of every season. If the liquid is below the ‘Full’ line on the reservoir, add a 50/50 mix of water and coolant.

3) Dead Car Battery
Did you know high temperatures put extra stress on car batteries and also cause battery fluid to evaporate?
Prevent It: Have one of our CardinaleWay Volkswagen service professionals check your battery, starter and alternator. And while it’s OK to leave your devices charging for a few hours with your car off, if you leave them plugged in overnight it’s not uncommon that you’ll need to jump start your battery the next morning.

CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona Has A Great Service Department
Our factory-trained service technicians are here to make sure your #Volkswagen always runs its best. And while you’re here for service, we invite you to check out our inventory of Volkswagen models. Ask about our new Volkswagen specials, too. Visit our website at www.cardinalewayvw.com.

Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross Drivers Get 1st & 2nd in 2017 Red Bull Global Rallycross Season Opening Race

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, June 15th, 2017 at 6:51 PM

Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross and its drivers, Scott Speed and Tanner Foust, are off to a winning start in 2017, taking first and second respectively at the opening races in Memphis.  Foust and Speed drove two fresh Beetle GRCs. To learn more and to test drive the new VW Beetles, come to CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona, CA, your Orange County Volkswagen dealership.

The Drivers
Scott Speed, an 11-time race winner, is in his fourth season of Red Bull Global Rallycross competition. He expects  the VW Andretti Rallycross team will continue to win in 2017.

Tanner Foust earned second place in the all-new Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen Beetle. He is a two-time series champion. Speed and Faust are racing in newly-built Beetle GRC models, manufactured by Volkswagen Motorsport in Europe. Upgrades to these models include improved handling, but otherwise are the same 2.0-liter 560-horsepower engines the team drove in 2016.

On winning, Faust said, “What a great way to start the season! When you’re racing, you’re either developing your car and pushing forward, or you’re losing. The hard work in the off-season has definitely paid off for the Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross team.”

From the very first laps, it was clear that the Volkswagens were the cars to beat. Foust qualified in second, narrowly behind first place teammate Scott Speed.

Global Rallycross Championships
Twelve races on are the 2017 Global Rallycross Championship calendar. Five new cities are on the circuit, including Louisville, KY, as well as a return to familiar fan favorites. NBC is providing full coverage of all 12 rounds of the Global Rallycross competition.

Car Washing 101 – Dos And Don’ts You Might Not Know About

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 at 6:29 PM

The better your car looks, the more value you’ll get out of it. All other things being equal between two used cars, the one that’s clean and well-maintained will get the best price. Here are some car washing tips from CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona that will help your “new car look” last longer. CardinaleWay Volkswagen aims to be your number one Orange County Volkswagen dealership.

Don’t Use Any Old T-Shirt, Towel or Rag
Even though old tees and old towels feel soft, they’re not as as soft as microfiber cloths, which are easier on your car’s finish. For the best results, try a microfiber chenille noodle mitt. To dry the car, use a plush microfiber towel or a waffle-weave towel. For a quick dry, streak-free finish, use two waffle-weave towels and wipe off as much glass cleaner as you can with the first towel, then use the second to buff away any last drops or streaks.

Use Two Buckets
Did you know that using only one bucket to wash your car can mean you’re wearing out your car’s finish by rubbing it repeatedly with dirt and debris? Instead, try the two-bucket method: fill up one bucket with soapy water and another with water. Wet your wash mitt in the soapy bucket. After you rub it on your car, dip the mitt into the rinse bucket to clear off grime before soaping it up again. This helps ensure you’re not scratching your car’s finish.

Don’t Use a Circular Motion
Circular motions create superfine scratches that are hard to fix. Instead, move your mitt or towel in straight lines or a Z-pattern. It’s much easier to touch up a scratch that’s a straight line.

Brush and Vacuum the Floor Mats
Your vacuum just can’t get all of the dirt or dog hair that’s stuck on your interior’s carpet. We recommend using a stiff brush to loosen dust and caked-on mud before you vacuum will help get your mats clean.

Our staff of knowledgeable and friendly professionals aims to provide you with excellent service. We look forward to helping you find the vehicle that suits your transportation needs and budget.
