Check Out What Patricia Thinks of Her Volkswagen Vehicle?

When you are buying a car one of the most important (yet hard to pin down) factors to consider is whether the car, truck, or SUV is right for you. That is what Patricia considered when she went to buy a car; that’s how she found out that her Volkswagen model was the best option.

Just check out this video where she talks about her Volkswagen vehicle and you will see exactly what we are talking about.


Towing Basics for Safety

You should make sure of some safety basics before hitching your vehicle to a trailer or other towing load. You should make sure you have the right trailer hitch for your vehicle, and that the vehicle and trailer will support the load. You must check tires and be sure to balance the load. You can pack heavy objects first to keep the load's center of gravity as low as possible.

Stockton area drivers know that towing requires extra care and awareness of weight. Turning cannot be sharp or sudden, and you must try to avoid hard stops. 


Why is Your Tire Pressure Light Indicated?

When any kind of light goes on on your dashboard, it can be nerve wracking. That is why our auto service team here at Volkswagen of Stockton thought that it would be nice to focus specifically on your tire pressure light today.

The main reason that this light turns on is that one or multiple tires is losing pressure. Another less common reason may be that the tires are wearing very unevenly and thus are out of sync with one another. 


Learn More About Rear Wheel Drive and Front Wheel Drive

Cars use transmissions to transfer horsepower from their engines to their drive wheels, and the most-popular types of vehicles are front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive. At Volkswagen of Stockton, we are happy to help drivers like you understand the differences between the two choices.

In short, front-wheel drive pulls, and rear-wheel drive pushes. Also, manufacturers can build FWD cars faster than RWD cars, so you can save money on your initial purchase by choosing a FWD model. 


Tire Replacement Cues

Don't let tire laziness negatively affect your safety as a driver. Don't let it harm the other people who use the road alongside you day in and day out, either. If your car's tires are ready for replacement, you need to do something about it. Common signs that indicate tires that require replacement include cracking rubber, frequent flats, flat sections in the middle and unwelcome openings. If you look at your tires and see anything along those lines, then you know that replacement is your best bet.

It's critical to be prompt about tire replacement as…


Are You Ready to Replace Your Car Battery?

These cold mornings can make it difficult to get going, not just for our vehicles, but for us as well. It is natural that your vehicle may have to work just a little bit harder to turn over that engine in the morning but if you think there may be more going on, it might be time to let our skilled technicians take a look at your car.

Your vehicle's battery is what helps get your vehicle running when you start it. Without it, you are going nowhere fast. There can be a number of things wrong with your…


Look Out for These Common Suspension Issues

Your car's suspension system is hidden under your vehicle and is generally difficult to inspect visually like other parts of your car. That is why we feel at Volkswagen of Stockton that it is important to be aware of some common signs of suspension wear that could indicate it is time to have it serviced.

While your vehicle is parked, if you notice it leaning to one side or to one corner, that is a good indicator that your springs or other suspension parts may be worn out. You will also notice that you will seem to roll from…


Washer Fluid is Necessary for Maintenance

We take our windshield wipers for granted and the fluid used to help keep our windshields clean. However, the windshield washer system needs regular maintenance just like the motor in your car or even your transmission.

The windshield washer system consists of a water pump, water reservoir, hoses and numerous other small parts that ensure we have washer fluid available when needed. We know the importance of the fluid in keeping our windshields clean of dirt and grime, but it is necessary for maintaining the pump, hoses, and other parts.
