TDI Emission Buy Back Resource

Standard

We like to offer our VW customers as many resources as possible. VW Southtowne was directed to a Reddit  and a VW Group forum site regarding the TDI Buy back process and discussions of what other VW TDI customers are going through.

Since VW dealers are only facilitators for TDI buy back appointments and drop off’s, we don’t have answers to your questions. We do try to keep an ear out to direct you to good resources for the emissions settlement q&a’s.

2017 IIHS Top Safety Picks include six Volkswagen Models

Standard
SIX VOLKSWAGEN MODELS EARN 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK RATINGS FROM THE INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY

Dec 8, 2016

Jetta earns TSP+ rating, Golf 4-door and Passat models earn TSP

Herndon, VA (December 8, 2016)  — Volkswagen of America, Inc. today announced that several of its 2017 models have earned 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS):

  • The 2017 Jetta, when equipped with optional Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking (Front Assist) and Bi-Xenon headlights, has earned TOP SAFETY PICK+
  • The 2017 Volkswagen Golf 4-door, Golf Alltrack, Golf GTI 4-door and Golf SportWagen, when equipped with optional Front Assist, have earned TOP SAFETY PICK
  • The 2017 Passat, featuring standard Front Assist, has earned TOP SAFETY PICK

The 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK award is issued to vehicles that have earned good ratings in IIHS tests evaluated in five categories: frontal impact moderate overlap; frontal impact small overlap; side impact; roof strength; and head restraints. It must also offer an autonomous emergency braking system (AEB) that earns at least an advanced rating for front crash prevention.

The 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating is issued to vehicles that have met all of the TOP SAFETY PICK criteria and must offer headlights that earn at least an acceptable rating for visibility and lack of excessive glare.

“At Volkswagen, we strongly believe that the latest advanced driver assist technologies can be delivered without being in the premium segment,” said Hendrik Muth, Senior Vice President, Product Marketing and Strategy. ”The IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings awarded to a variety of Volkswagen models compliments our ongoing commitment to offering these features .”

Volkswagen’s Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking system (Front Assist) driver assistance system uses one or more radar sensors combined with a camera to help monitor the distance of traffic ahead of the vehicle. Within physical system limits, Forward Collision Warning helps alert the driver of critical front-end collision situations, both acoustically and visually by a clear warning symbol in the instrument cluster above 19 mph, and, if necessary, braking is initiated to slow the vehicle in the system speed range. If the driver fails to apply the brakes, the system autonomously applies them; if the pedal is engaged but the driver brakes too lightly, the pressure is increased by the system (targeted braking).  Front Assist is optional on 2017 Jetta and Golf models and standard on the 2017 Passat.

Other available driver assistance features on the 2017 Jetta, Golf family and Passat include: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, an active Lane Departure Warning system (Lane Assist), front and rear Park Distance Control (ParkPilot), and Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist), High Beam Control (Light Assist), and Bi-Xenon headlights with the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS). Availability depends on model and trim.

All Volkswagen models offer a combination of both passive and active safety systems that are engineered to meet or exceed current crash regulations. The 2017 Jetta, Golf models and Passat are equipped with the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System as standard.

IIHS launched its front crash prevention rating program in 2013 to help consumers sort through the maze of available technologies and zero in on the most effective systems. For more information on IIHS, visit www.iihs.org. All IIHS ratings are available at http://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings.

VW 3.0L TDI Update 12.20.2016

Standard

12.20.2016

VW announces that they have come to a settlement for those waiting to hear about their 3.0L diesel Volkswagen and Audi’s. Judge Breyer ruled on 80,000 3.0L, which includes newer 3-liter vehicles — such as the 2013-2016 Volkswagen Touareg, 2013-2015 Audi Q7, 2013-2016 Porsche Cayenne, and 2014-2016 Audi A6 quattro, A7 quattro, A8, A8L and Q5 — a fix is possible, so buybacks won’t be offered. There will be about 20k models that will be bought back because the fix is too complicated and the other’s will be offered a fix.

U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco announced it will include the option of a buyback for at least 20,000 vehicles and will give all the car owners substantial compensation on top of any repairs or a buyback. Breyer didn’t include any numbers in his announcement.

The 2.0L buybacks are in full swing.

SOCK IT TO COLD FEET: SOCK COLLECTION

Standard

FACT: Socks are the clothing item that wears out the quickest.

FACT: Socks are the #1 requested and least donated item for homeless shelters.

What do you do when your socks are wet from the snow or rain? You walk in your house and take them off and either change them or put on slippers. While we have the luxury of doing that, the men, women, and children that are homeless, do not.

VW Southtowne is collecting socks for The Road Home and local shelters!  We will “match a pair” for every pair that we take in from December 13th to January 13th

sock-drive-2016

VW Southtowne wants to make sure that the toes and soles of the Utah homeless are warm this winter.

Please spread the word and help us keep those feet dry!

We will have a drop box at the front of our store until January 13th, 2017!

Thank you for your warm heart this winter.
