When is the Volkswagen Jetta getting a redesign?

Rumors have been flying recently, as spy shots have come out that could possibly mean a sixth-generation Volkswagen Jetta. When is the model getting a redesign? Having last seen a complete overall in 2011, it’s only natural for auto journalists to start speculating. The fact that we still don’t have 2018 model year information, despite it already being October, has quite a few people wondering if it could happen this year, or if we won’t be seeing the next-generation VW Jetta until 2019.

How long is the Volkswagen New Car Warranty

How long is the Volkswagen New Car Warranty?

There’s plenty to consider when shopping for a new car, and one thing that often goes overlooked is warranty coverage. This may partially be because so many automakers have traditionally offered similar warranties. One might call 3 years of 36,000 miles a standard. Volkswagen, however, has decided that the standard is no longer good enough. So how long is the VW New Car Warranty? Starting with the 2018 model year, it’s now 6 years/72,000 miles.

Tampa FL trick-or-treat times for 2017

Tampa FL trick-or-treat times for 2017

Make no bones about it: we love Halloween. It’s a holiday that continues to strike at our creativity and leave us enthralled long after we’ve reached adulthood. While many holidays lose their sparkle as they change meaning or we gain responsibilities, Halloween continues as a time when we can dress up and pretend to be something ghoulish, zany or adorable. You are just as welcome to enjoy it for horror and thrills, or take a more light-hearted approach. The latter is especially relevant for parents, who are often wondering about the best time to go trick or treating in Tampa FL, rather than scouting for 2017 Halloween parties. Here’s what you need to know. Read the rest of this entry »

How does automatic climate control work

How does automatic climate control work?

It wouldn’t make sense to live in Tampa, FL if you don’t enjoy the sun, but does anybody love the feeling of getting into a hot car? We don’t think so. It’s safe to say that most locals couldn’t live without air conditioning, but at the same time a comfortable temperature can be argued over as much as what to put on the radio. Today we’re looking at automatic climate control, both how it works and its benefits over your standard, manual A/C. Read the rest of this entry »

VW just announced it plans to offer an electric version of all its vehicles

Volkswagen full electric lineup by 2030

Volkswagen full electric lineup by 2030

So many automakers are looking ahead to an EV and autonomous future, that gasoline almost seems taboo. It seems almost odd to be looking at the future in this way, when the current market offers vehicles with 200 mile ranges as an “upgrade” over the older EVs. Gasoline models, by contrast, can have you going 400-500 miles on a single tank, and filling back up takes just a few minutes. So when you hear that Volkswagen might offer a full electric lineup by 2030, are you to greet the news with excitement or skepticism? Well, it doesn’t mean gasoline options will be phased out.
