Avoiding Salt Corrosion

Salt was first applied to roadways during the 1930s to ensure safety in the presence of ice and snow. Salt is inexpensive and readily available, which makes it the perfect de-icing compound. However, the necessary evil is also harsh on automotive finishes. However, there are a few tips that vehicle owners should implement to protect cars, SUVs and trucks from the corrosion and rust that may occur when exposed to road salt.

Protect your investment by washing the vehicle as soon as possible after traveling over roadways having salt applications.

Experience the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

The Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is as sporty as its name suggests. This hatchback is a versatile car that can do just about anything. The SportWagen's clever design makes it a great fit for any driver, whether they're interested in moving people or things.

The SportWagen makes a great cross between a traditional car and an SUV. It has plenty of cargo space. The rear seats fold down for even more storage. However, this vehicle is still low to the ground, and it handles more like a car than like a truck.  


Here's Why You Should Be Using the Volkswagen Certified Pre-Owned Program

Make sure there are batteries of all sizes as well.

Car Batteries & Extreme Temperatures

You want to make sure that your battery lasts for as long as possible. At Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield, we have seen batteries affected by extreme hot and cold temperatures.

Cold weather can cause batteries to have slower chemical reactions. Batteries will often become sluggish. They may lose the ability to start entirely, especially when they are in extreme temperatures.

Performance Features of the Volkswagen Golf

An industry leader for decades, Volkswagen leads the market of popular compact cars with its Golf, a four-door design that provides a roomy interior and plenty of power under the hood for drivers who need to pull into traffic quickly and enjoy peppy acceleration on the highway.

The Golf's turbocharged engine packs 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque into its tidy frame. The eight-speed transmission performs well on its own, but drivers can take greater control over their ride by switching to either Tiptronic or Sport mode to tailor engine performance to the demands of the road.
