    New Tires for Golf

    In the middle of purchasing a 2001 Golf that needs new tires. I have had Pirelli P7s on two previous VWs and loved them but the P7 isn't made in 15" sizes. Intrigued by the P4 but I'm not brand loyal when it comes to good tires. What is a good 15" all-season tire to run? Looking for a good...

    Towing Help!

    Long story short, had a uhaul hitch installed on my 2012 Passat. When I pick up the car, the uhaul guy says they can't do the wiring harness and I have to take it to the dealer. Why it didn't throw a red flag when I booked it I'll never know but that's besides the case. Go to the dealer and...

    Year one in the books and I love it more every day!

    One year ago today, I completed my conversion and took delivery on my first VW and looking back on the past year I couldn’t be happier. Traded a Jeep Grand Cherokee and went back into a manual transmission (which I missed dearly) and went from 18MPG averages to just more than 43. The car was a...

    Sheehy VW for service? Springfield, VA

    I am currently working with Sheehy VW in Springfield, VA to have my fuel door replaced after someone broke it off at a service station. They have agreed to give me a loaner car because they need to take my car to the paint shop in Fairfax to match up the pin striping. I'm coming close to 60k...
