Pohanka of Salisbury Opens the Very First Fully Electrified Volkswagen Dealership in the Country

Pohanka Volkswagen of Salisbury officially opened the doors to their all-new state of the art showroom on Thursday Evening. Joined by representatives from the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce, the Pohanka VW team gathered outside the new facility for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony symbolizing the opening of the new location.

The brand new building, located on Salisbury Boulevard in Salisbury MD, is a sleek structure with floor to ceiling windows and an easy to access service lane. The all-new showroom is slick, spacious, and open creating a modern and sophisticated atmosphere for both customers and employees to enjoy. “It’s so nice to shave a showroom with enough space to house some of our top of the line vehicles to show our customers,” says Cassie Ullrich, Sales Manager at Pohanka Volkswagen of Salisbury.

Not only does the new building provide an exemplary space to shop for a vehicle but it also shows the direction in which the Volkswagen brand is heading with an emphasis on electric and hybrid models. “We are very excited to be the very first fully electrified Volkswagen dealership in the entire country,” Says Dan Fitzgerald, General Manager at Pohanka Volkswagen. “We are also the first with both outdoor and interior eclectic chargers to demonstrate for a customer what it’s like to drive an electric vehicle.”

The Pohanka Volkswagen team is proud and excited to offer their showroom and services to car shoppers all across the Delmarva Peninsula. Paul Eaton, Chief Operating Officer of the Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive Group says “This is truly an exciting time for us!

How reliable is the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta?

2020 Volkswagen Jetta Reliability Rating

Loaded with user-friendly technology and boasting a smooth, comfortable ride, the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta is an alluring machine. For 2020, the model gains a standard Wi-Fi hotspot, standardized Cold Weather package on the SEL trim, and standard wireless device charging on the SEL and SEL Premium trims. Like the whole 2020 VW lineup, warranty coverage is also reshuffled.

But many drawn in by the appeal of this machine also catch themselves; “best not to be reckless, now,” they think, attempting fruitlessly to restrain their enraptured mind. In a last ditch attempt to fight the near-uncontrollable desire for the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta, prospective buyers may ask, “well, how just how reliable is it?” Continue reading

Does the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan have remote start?

Remote Start 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan

It’s getting chilly here on the Delmarva Peninsula. Many of us have been suffering a recurring dose of what we here at Pohanka Volkswagen call “Cold Car Syndrome.” That is, every time we get in our car after it’s been parked for a few hours or more, especially when outside, it’s cold.

We walk through the icy air to get to the car, and then we struggle to drive through our shivers for a few minutes until the car finally warms up. This can take varying amounts of time depending on the quality of your heating system. The prospect of suffering through yet another winter in this way is not a very appealing one.

Luckily, there’s a feature that can greatly alleviate such pain; it’s known as remote start. Does the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan come with remote start?

Yes, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan comes with remote start on the SEL trim and above. This means that buyers will get standard remote start on the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL, SEL R-Line, SEL R-Line Black, SEL Premium and SEL Premium R-Line trims. Remote start is an available feature for the 2019 Tiguan S and SE trims.

Can I add remote start to a 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan?

If you pick up a 2019 Tiguan that does not have remote start equipped, do not despair! Aftermarket kits are available from Volkswagen. These can be perused through our Volkswagen Parts & Accessories store.

Why get a vehicle with remote start?

As stated in our lengthy intro above, remote start is particularly useful for easing the pain of cold weather. It makes your daily commutes easier by warming your vehicle before you get inside, doing away with that period of freezing discomfort. The drive becomes more enjoyable for both you and your passengers.

Pre-warming a vehicle using remote start can also melt off the ice accumulated on your windows and windshield, which can save you from having to use a scraper. It can also warm your engine and oil so that your vehicle has an easier time functioning once you start driving. Also, once the hot summer weather arrives, you can use remote start to cool your car before getting in.

However, do be careful not to let your car idle too long. This can damage your car, waste fuel, and harm the environment. Most remote start systems have a timer that shuts off automatically after ten to twenty minutes.
