Though it may not be due for a refresh, this doesn’t mean there won’t be any changes for the model year. In fact, the Atlas gains a few new features in the form of driver assistance functions in the base S trim. Read the rest of this entry »

Is VW discontinuing the V6 engine?

For those of us who have been on the road long enough, we can remember when the V6 engine was the go-to option.

So, does this mean VW will be discontinuing the V6 engine? Read the rest of this entry »

A common noise you might hear in your VW is a squealing noise when you brake. What causes this, and should you be worried. Read the rest of this entry »
