Debunking Common Volkswagen Repair Myths

Debunking Common Volkswagen Repair Myths

A couple of common Volkswagen myths exist to this day and now, the time has come to debunk them, once and for all. The majority of these myths, regarding the popular vehicle brand of Volkswagen, are solely due to the desire of people to save as much money as possible. In other cases, they are results of misinformation. You are causing damage to your vehicle, by believing in these myths. Here are a couple of myths about Volkswagen that has been bugging us for years:

Myth #1:You Can Make DIY Repairs on Your Volkswagen

If you are a licensed auto technician, you'll have the right skills and tools to make any repair on your Volkswagen. However, that's not the case for most Volkswagen drivers, who have occupations, unrelated to the automotive industry. Of course, you can watch videos online and see how a certain repair is performed, but there's a huge risk of making even a bigger mess. Volkswagen vehicles are considered to be complex, so just one wrong move could result in the emergence of various other problems.

Myth #2:  Volkswagens Are Expensive to Maintain

There's no doubt that there's some truth to this myth, because some parts have to be imported, but on the other hand, you can easily find other parts near you. In most cases, the general parts, that are not imported, require repairs. The cost of maintaining and repairing your Volkswagen vehicle is not as high as you may think it is.

Myth #3: If You Wish to Prevent Your Warranty from Being Cancelled, Take It to the Dealership

There's no need for you to take your Volkswagen to the nearest dealership for any auto repair or maintenance work. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act prevents automotive dealerships from forcing drivers to bring their vehicles to the dealership for all future auto repairs. The only thing you need to do is to make sure the auto repair facility you are taking your Volkswagen is certified to make auto repairs on it. Last, but not least, it'll cost you far less.

Find a reputable and certified auto repair center near you that has licensed Volkswagen auto mechanics, and schedule your next Volkswagen auto repair appointment.

In addition, it's equally important to seat your kids appropriately so that you can avoid any fighting between them and keep them happy while on the road.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.

Kansas City Assembly Plant uses interesting and innovative supply chain structure called Automotive Alle…
