Meet Our Newest VW News Contributor- Luke Egolf

I’m not a blog pro, nor will I pretend to be one!  I am however, a Volkswagen Pro, so hopefully you can learn a few things from me or at least be entertained.  My name is Luke Egolf, and I VW Denveram a Volkswagen Sales Specialist

Yes, I am a car salesman, but not the typical one!  I want to introduce myself and let everyone know my intentions with the blog.

I have been working with McDonald Volkswagen for 9 months.  Prior to that…no car sales experience.  I owned my own company for 7 years and put it up for sale once my wife and I discovered we were pregnant with twins.  After some time off, and learning that we were soon to have yet another child, I decided it was time to pursue a career in my passion…cars.  I lived in Chicagoland after college and would enjoy taking 2 weeks of vacation from my job to work at the Chicago Auto Show every winter.  I was thrilled to start working at McDonald VW here in Littleton and am having a great time working with the Volkswagen lineup.

I’ve got plenty of resources and product knowledge.  I want to share that with you and have some fun with it, too.  I’ll be covering these items and more:

 -Chattanooga Factory tour

-2012 lineup

The McDonald VW Team

-Beetlemania

-Extreme test drives

Used car diamonds

-VW news

-Vortex, TDI club, and other fan site news

-Tips, tricks, and little know facts

-Customer favorites

Feel free to email me anytime if there is a topic or question you have, or if you want to come in for a test drive with me!

I like short and sweet, so I’ll end it there.  Till next time! 

Luke

The VW Beetle Rides Again

Personalization has taken over. Everything can now be tailored to our personal taste, from clothes to phones, nothing is immune.  Everything we own gives an impression to others about who we are or who we want to be. It’s not trivial then that our car’s make and model are influencing how other drivers view us behind the wheel.

Long gone are the Model T and the opportunity to choose any car color as long as it was black. We may not all drive the same car but our ability to customize, accentuate, decorate or even give a car a name demonstrates the rise of individualizing our lives and demonstrates more about us than we think.

While this may sound strange to some, giving a car a name has been around for some time. Herbie may have not been the first, and he won’t be the last car to be personalized with a name. The Love Bug proved to us that an endearing and distinctive car can’t be judged by its hood. Herbie was known as the spunky race car that won races even with a mere four cylinder engine, unlike the Corvette’s v12’s of today.  The old bug may be retired, and been redesigned once before in its 73 year history, but in 2012 a new breed of Volkswagen Beetle will once again change the perception of what the bug can do. The second generation Beetle may have been thought of as a young girl’s car, even coming with a matching flower vase for the dash.  But now, lowered and lengthened to look sportier, the new 2012 Beetle will once again be turning heads and competing on the track.  With its more masculine body and the availability of a 200-turbo model, the 2012 bug will change drivers and owner’s minds alike. The 6 speed DSG Transmission will have owners loving their bug as they relive the speed and vitality represented in the movie, the Love Bug. This time around, Herbie truly will “ride again”, creating excitement for a whole new generation of enthusiasts.

Big July Savings At McDonald VW Service Center

McDonald Volkswagen Service

It may be heating up outside, but stay cool with savings during July’s summer service specials at McDonald Volkswagen.

Whether it’s taking a long road trip or just stop-and-go daily driving, the hot weather can play havoc on a vehicle. Nothing is more important for keeping a vehicle off the shoulder of the road than preventive maintenance. Regularly changing your engine oil and filter is one of the most essential, but neglected, replacement components on a vehicle. McDonald Volkswagen has you covered this month with a synthetic oil change for just $49.99.  All McDonald Volkswagen Service comes with the assurance of OEM parts that are specifically designed for each make and model. Customers will also leave with peace of mind knowing that a 27-point inspection is complimentary with every oil change.

Extend the life of a vehicle’s tires with a four wheel alignment for $69.95 during the month of July. It may not be pot-hole season, but they can occur anytime, anywhere. Pot-holes and bumping curbs can throw a vehicle out of alignment quickly, leading to premature tire wear. Avoid having to spend money prematurely on costly tires with a quick and easy alignment that will have a vehicle driving like new in virtually no time.

We all know Colorado weather can change frequently so don’t get caught with worn-out wipers. For a limited time, when drivers come in for a 20k mile interval, routine regular maintenance, Volkswagen owners will receive a free pair of installed wiper blades. The savings continue to grow. In addition, the more you spend on labor, the more you save. Depending on the amount, customers can save up to $50.00 when they bring any Volkswagen in for any service.

Not only does McDonald Volkswagen have specials on service, but customers can save big on accessories and apparel. You can be in gear with your own gear for either guys or gals.
