How to reset the tire pressure sensor in VW models

We love modern technology and safety features. Warning sounds let us know when we’re straying from our lanes, and even when we just leave the lights on or don’t close the door all the way. It’s these small things that prevent our batteries from dying and keep us safe. At the same time, it can be annoying when you see a warning light and you know you’ve fixed the problem. So if your TPMS system is acting a bit wacky, you may be wondering how to reset the tire pressure sensor in VW models so that you can be sure yours will still give you a correct reading next time your tires are a bit low.

What is the Volkswagen T-Prime GTE plug-in hybrid?

What is the Volkswagen T-Prime GTE plug-in hybrid?

It was just two weeks ago that we heard the news that Volkswagen would be bringing another SUV concept to an auto show. So far this year we saw the T-Cross Breeze in Geneva back in early March, and before that Volkswagen tantalized us with the Tiguan GTE Active back at the NAIAS in January. Volkswagen has repeatedly indicated that the SUV lineup will expand in upcoming years, introducing as many as three new options to the lineup and updating both the Tiguan and Touareg. Naturally, we thought this update of the Touareg would be the next unveiling, since it is the standing luxury option in the lineup, but instead we were introduced to the T-Prime concept. So what is the Volkswagen T-Prime GTE plug-in hybrid and why should you be excited about it? Read the rest of this entry »

As VW frequently does, the images were dropped, but we’re left to wonder exactly what to expect. Read the rest of this entry »

Ways to go green in April for Earth Day 2016

2016 Earth Day Ideas for Springfield MO

In the automotive world we’re always talking about greener options, and that doesn’t refer to paint colors. Development of vehicles that run on alternative fuels, have hybrids powertrains or are fully electric has been a goal for decades. While we aren’t quite ready to say gasoline models are about to go the way of the dinosaurs, when electric vehicles start rolling out with practical ranges and shorter charging times, it seems only natural that they should someday replace your standard vehicle. Until then, it would make little sense for us to promote 2016 Earth Day Ideas for Springfield MO that involve buying a new car, unless you’re driving a relic. Here are some things you can do this year to help keep our community beautiful. Read the rest of this entry »
