Volkswagen’s Humble Beginnings
Volkswagen (VW) AG, also known as the Volkswagen Group, is a German multinational automotive manufacturing company headquartered in Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony, Germany. Volkswagen was founded on the 28th of May 1937 by the German Labour Front under Adolf Hitler. The company was named Volkswagen because in German it literally means “people’s car.” Since only 1 in 50 Germans owned a car at the time, VW designed and produced a small family car that was affordable for the average German.
A Giant of The Automotive Industry
Today the VW Group competes with Toyota for the number one spot in worldwide sales of automobiles. It has factories in many parts of the world, manufacturing or assembling vehicles for local markets. It invests a great deal in research and development, placing it at the forefront of safety and CO2 emissions innovation. Volkswagen designs, manufactures and distributes passenger and commercial vehicles, motorcycles, engines, and turbomachinery and offers related services including financing, leasing and fleet management.
Lower Mainland’s VW Specialists
At Norlang Auto, our staff is always willing and able to answer any questions about your VW automobile and advise you in scheduling any service or repairs needed. We believe that your vehicles should not only be serviced according to your manufacturer’s factory recommended mileage intervals but also depending on how and how often you use your VW. Every time you bring in your vehicle, we inspect it to determine its condition, safety and wear. The results of the inspection and diagnostic recommendations are specific to your car and can help you plan for any future maintenance expenses. It is vital that we identify minor issues and address them before they develop into a safety hazard or costly repairs.
If your Volkswagen vehicle hasn’t been serviced for some time, we recommend that you visit Norlang Auto where our mechanics can diagnose your vehicle’s condition, informing you of any issues that may lead to problems. Volkswagen recommended service intervals are 16,000 kilometers or 1 year. Normally, service intervals are based on time, and mileage driven, however there some items, such as brake fluid, that age through time as well as mileage, so an annual service, regardless of mileage, is important to deal with these and ensure your car is running in top condition. Volkswagen also has specific technology that requires precisely timed service such as Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmissions, Haldex clutch systems, diesel particulate filters and timing belts.
