Volkswagen has allocated us our first 2 2025 ID. Buzz's with delivery expected around July, We are thrilled to start selling our 3rd all electric vehicle.

Top Shop Challenge: What are a couple of things you'd like to highlight that happened last month?

We upgraded our Hunter Alignment check equipment and now we can simply drive through the equipment for the check instead of mounting heads to each wheel and manually rolling the car forward. Not only does this save time, it also allows a direct connection to our inspection software so there is no longer a print you and the Service Advisors and Technicians can immediately see it.

Luckily for this customer, Volkswagen created EV batteries where every component can be replaced if damaged. Instead of a $20K+ battery replacement after running over debris in the road, replacing the lower case assembly only costs <$8K.
