2017 Labor Day Weekend Events Washington D.C.
Most of us work 40 hours each week, or more, almost every week of the year. Gone are our school days, with long summer breaks to refresh us. Which is why three-day weekends, like Labor Day weekend, are so important to us. With the weather quickly cooling off, and summer events coming to a close, this may be the last chance to enjoy outdoor events. Here are some of the top 2017 Labor Day weekend events happening around the Washington D.C. area. Read the rest of this entry »
What time is the 2017 solar eclipse in Washington D.C.?
They say never to stare into the sun if you want to keep your eyesight, and this is just as true during an eclipse as it is at any other time of the year. Especially for viewers in the Washington D.C. area, as we’ll only be seeing a partial eclipse this year. Still, with any eclipse at all coming in as a rare sight, even a partial eclipse is something rare for us to behold. So what time is the 2017 solar eclipse peak time here in the Washington D.C. and NoVA area? Read the rest of this entry »
August 23 World Premiere VW T-Roc
If the T-Roc name sounds familiar, it’s because it’s not a new concept from Volkswagen. It was three years ago, at the Geneva Auto Show, that a world premiere was announced. But that was a premiere as a concept car. Now it sounds like the model will go into production. We won’t know for sure until August 23, which has been announced as the new world premiere of the VW T-Roc, but it sounds like the model could become a reality. Though not necessarily for us here in the U.S. Read the rest of this entry »
What is Volkswagen Land of Sharks?
The TV viewing event of the summer is finally upon us: Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Of all the world’s creatures that draw the most excitement and curiosity, it has to be sharks. Why? Perhaps it’s the perceived danger of them, or possibly it’s because their presence in the ocean makes them feel so far away, yet closer than we’re aware, but Shark Week is the longest running event for the Discovery Channel. Volkswagen has only been sponsoring it for the six years now, but is proud of the opportunity to participate. This year, Volkswagen presents “Land of Sharks,” a video series featuring a family that travels cross-country to learn more about prehistoric sharks. Read the rest of this entry »
If there’s one thing that shows the Volkswagen Beetle is a fun, it’s the wide variety of things that owners have done over the years. No other vehicle seems to pull out such high modifications, which often go above and beyond a simple paint job. In fact, the Baja Bug is a name given to models that were originally customized by owners for use over sand dunes, long before VW decided to make the Beetle Dune. There are plenty of impressive mods, but these are some of the craziest custom Volkswagen Beetles we could find on Instagram. Read the rest of this entry »
Is the VW Touareg being discontinued after 2017?
Let’s face it, the Volkswagen Touareg has always been something of a niche vehicle in the lineup. The mid-size SUV has sat at the top of the lineup, as one of just two SUVs offered from the automaker. It’s an odd thing, considering it’s meant to be a luxury option, when no non-luxury choice is available. In a good, better, best situation, VW has only been offering the best, but that’s a hard pill to swallow without being shown how it is better than less expensive vehicles. With the Atlas and new Tiguan heading to dealerships for 2018, rumors are flying that the VW Touareg may be discontinued after the latest 2017 model year. Read the rest of this entry »
2017 Volkswagen Model Year End Sales Event Washington D.C.
Summer is easily the best time to buy a car, and it’s not just because the clear roads and warm weather makes it easier to browse through our showroom.

Is Volkswagen getting rid of the smaller Tiguan?
Some say all good things must come to an end, but we think this only happens to the VW lineup when something better is on the horizon. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan looks to be an improvement as it launches the second-generation Tiguan, but it also is quite a bit larger than the original Tiguan. This leaves something of an empty space as VW will have the Touarag, Tiguan and Atlas to provide a variety of family-friendly options, but what about crossovers? It looks like Volkswagen will not be getting rid of the smaller Tiguan in 2018, though it seems certain that the model will eventually get nixed. Read the rest of this entry »
