Volkswagen Responsibly Steers Clear of Recalls

Jul 19, 2014


Volkswagen puts a halt to the sale of its new Golf and GTI hatchbacks due to an assembly error that may affect the car steering.  The front stablizer links were not applied well enough and can come loose over time, making it harder and harder to turn the steering wheel and ultimately cause a car crash.


Over 2000 vehicles are affected in both the USA and Canada and the halt will slow early sales of the GTI currently onsale along with the Golf which was planning to hit the dealerships in August.  We commend VDub for being responsible and proactive and catching this issue early on, before their passengers got behind the wheel.  Well done Volkswagen, well done.

Find Quality Touch Up Paint

Order touch up paint on-line!

All touch up paint is not created equal! The generic paints you buy at auto part stores will likely NOT match your vehicle’s paint exactly. Believe it or not, even the OEM dealers usually stock “close enough” colors. We recommend PaintScratch.com since their high quality paint is freshly made, they custom mix each order for you upon receipt, and they offer a color match guarantee.
