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

By David Sayas | 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 David Sayas | 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.

The Return Of The Volkswagen Microbus – Volkswagen Buzz

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, August 15th, 2017 at 6:18 PM

One of the most eagerly anticipated new Volkswagen models expected to make its debut in 2018 is the Volkswagen Buzz, a microbus, part of the I.D. series of EVs (electric vehicles).  Volkswagen Dealers Southern California and CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona are excited about offering a selection of EVs to our consumers who care about our environment.

Borrowing From The Past

The Buzz microbus is patterned after the 1950s Volkswagen T-1 bus, referred to as the Bulli.  That minibus could seat up to eight passengers.  However, Volkswagen has brought the model back to the future.  Not only is the Buzz an electric vehicle, it’s also driverless!  There’s a square steering wheel and when the autonomous driving system is placed in gear, the steering wheel retracts into the instrument panel.  If that seems unbelievable, you’ll be amazed to see seats in the 2018 Volkswagen Buzz microbus that swivel like chairs, and the third row seats can be converted into a bed.  It’s a bold new design that’s sure to get a lot of attention!

Paving A Path For Tomorrow

With a full line-up of EVs expected within the next year or two, Volkswagen is poised to lead the way in the future of electric vehicles.  Check with our Sales team at CardinaleWay Volkswagen to find out when the new Volkswagen EVs are expected to begin arriving on our lots.  You’ll want to be first in line to test drive these futuristic EVs. It’s an exciting time for automotive research and development.

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, visit us first and browse our great selection of the latest Volkswagen models like the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle or the 2017 Volkswagen Passat.  Or see our exemplary preowned Volkswagen vehicles. Our outstanding Sales team and Finance department can help you drive home in a Volkswagen today.

CardinaleWay Volkswagen Shares Tips To Prevent Fuel Pump Failure

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, August 9th, 2017 at 6:38 PM

It’s happened to many of us—we go to turn on our car and it won’t start.  It’s not the battery, so what could it be?  One of the possibilities is fuel pump failure.  Replacement of your vehicle’s fuel pump can be costly.  CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona, your favorite Orange County Volkswagen dealership, shares the following tips that will help prolong the life of your vehicle’s fuel pump.

Fuel Pump No-No’s

There are some things you want to avoid if you want to keep your fuel pump from experiencing failure.  Probably the best thing you can do is to avoid running your vehicle’s tank on empty.  Don’t allow it to habitually register “Empty” before you stop to refuel.  What happens when you are running on empty, is that the fuel pump is sucking in sedimentary particles that are on the bottom of your fuel tank.  This can lead to clogging the fuel filter and contributes to fuel pump failure.  Don’t use cheap fuel—only refuel with well-known gas stations.  Low quality fuel can be contaminated with particles that can create clogging and subsequently put more wear and tear on your fuel pump.  Finally, don’t use cheap fuel additives.  You may actually be doing more harm than good, as all additives are not alike.  Some additives may be inferior and contain chemicals that may damage your vehicle’s fuel pump.

Come To CardinaleWay Volkswagen For All Your Service Needs

We know how important it is to keep your vehicle running smoothly.  Bring your vehicle to CardinaleWay Volkswagen for all your auto maintenance.  Our Service technicians are highly trained and we have the latest state-of-the-art equipment for servicing your vehicle.  Visit us at CardinaleWay Volkswagen and browse our dealership lot.  We have a great selection of Volkswagen models and preowned Volkswagen vehicles.  See our website at www.cardinalewayvw.com for a complete listing of our inventory.

Volkswagen Sales Worldwide Increase For First Half Of 2017

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, August 4th, 2017 at 5:14 PM

Figures released by Volkswagen for the first half of 2017 indicate that the German automaker has enjoyed an increase in sales compared to the same period last year.  Volkswagen dealers Southern California and CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona are excited about this jump in global revenues.  With the recent announcement of anticipated production of a lineup of Electric Vehicles (EVs) by Volkswagen, we think the future is promising for Volkswagen.

Over Five Million Volkswagen Vehicles Delivered To Customers

That’s right, just in the first half of 2017, Volkswagen has delivered over 5.2 million Volkswagen vehicles to consumers worldwide.  Even more impressive, is that for the month of June 2017, new vehicles sold globally rose by 4.2 percent.  Fred Kappler, Head of Volkswagen Group Sales, reported that, “Stable growth in core regions gives us reason to look forward with confidence to the second half of the year.”

North American Market Jumped 9.1 Percent In June 2017

June was definitely a lucrative month for Volkswagen.  Numbers reported for June 2017 in the North American market comprised of Canada and the United States, indicated a significant increase of 9.1 percent.  In the U.S. alone, for the first half of 2017, Volkswagen has recorded an increase of 7.2 percent in sales.  In contrast, Germany saw a decrease of 1 percent for the first half of 2017.  Ironic, yes?  However, sales in Russia increased by 9.5 percent during the first half of 2017.

CardinaleWay Volkswagen Provides You With Tips So That You’ll Never Lose Your Car Keys Again

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, August 3rd, 2017 at 5:12 PM

You know the common scenario:  It’s early in the morning, you haven’t even finished your first cup of coffee and now you’re running late.  You’re ready to head out the door when suddenly there’s that dread that overcomes you as you frantically realize you can’t find your car keys.  Not again.  Volkswagen dealers Southern California and CardinaleWay Volkswagen in Corona has some timely tips for how you can avoid this scenario altogether.

Get More Organized

The key to being more organized is to establish a routine.  It’s true that every item should have a special place where it goes.  Make it a daily habit to always put it there so you can find it.  Pick a designated location for your car keys.  One suggestion is on your nightstand next to your bed or by the charging station for your cell phone.

Once You Leave Home, Attach Your Keys To Something Bigger

For men, it’s easy for them to drop their keys in their pants or jacket pocket.  For women, it’s a bigger challenge.  That’s because tossing your car keys into that extra-large purse or diaper bag is likely to swallow your car keys, making it difficult to put your hands on them in a hurry.  You don’t want to waste time digging through your purse.  Instead, attach your car keys to something bigger than your keys.  This will make it so much easier for you to grab your keys and go.

 

If All Else Fails, Get A GPS Tracker For Your Keys

If being more organized isn’t within the realm of possibility for you, consider investing in a GPS tracker for your keys.  One such device is called TILE.  Attach it to your keyring and you’ll always have a lifeline on where your keys are.

Replacing Your Car Keys Can Be Inconvenient And Expensive

With today’s remote and smart keys, it’s a frustrating dilemma if you lose your car keys.  Make sure you have the information handy for replacing your keys, as it often requires a keycode.  Your dealership can help you, but be aware that it may take several days to obtain new keys and it won’t be cheap.  It’s worth it to take steps to always know where your car keys are for your peace of mind.

We’re Your One-Stop Dealership

CardinaleWay Volkswagen is your one-stop dealership.  If you do lose your car keys, count on us to help you out.  Come visit us anytime you’re in the area and browse our selection of the latest Volkswagen models and preowned Volkswagen vehicles.  From the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta to the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, we’ve got a Volkswagen that sure to fit your lifestyle and budget!
