What Makes The Volkswagen Passat So Safe?

Safety is as important as performance when it comes to choosing a new car, and the Volkswagen Passat is one of the safest mid-sized sedans on the market today. In fact, it's so safe that it earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

When you drive the Volkswagen Passat, you can rest assured knowing that in the unlikely event of an accident, its safety cage offers crumple zones on both the front and rear to absorb the shock of the impact. 


Are Summer Tires Better Than All-Season Tires?

Our crew here at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield wanted to take a minute and inform you - now that the warmer weather is here - which tires are best for your vehicle. All-season tires may be fine most of the year, but this season is when you should have the summer tires on the car.

Summer tires are going to help make your drive safer this season by increasing handling, reduce braking distance, and allowing the tread of the tires to better grip the road surface.

Everything You Need to Know About Differentials

Most vehicle owners understand the importance of preventive maintenance-keeping up with those little things that ensure your car, truck or SUV stays on the road longer. We here at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield want to make sure you understand as much as possible about your vehicle. Today we're going to discuss differentials.

Differentials transfer power from your vehicle's engine to the axles. Four-wheel drive cars, trucks and SUVs often have differentials in the front and the back. The differential gearbox is full of cooling and lubricating fluid. 


Is it Time to Bring Your Car in for Exhaust Service?

The exhaust system on your car serves three purposes: to protect the occupants by safely transferring toxic fumes from the engine to outside the vehicle, to clean up those gases before they pollute the environment, and to dampen engine noise. Like any other system in an automobile, it needs to be properly maintained; even then, parts wear out.

When to Bring Your Exhaust in for a Service

Here at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield, our mechanics know what to do when you notice smoke coming from your exhaust pipe or if you spot something dripping from your muffler.

What are the Advantages of Using Synthetic Motor Oil?

Conventional motor oils have a running life. The running life depends on several factors, such as the ambient temperature, the age of the engine, and the type of driving. Conventional oils are subject to temperature changes; they run smoother in warm temperatures, like water when it is hot, and slower during cold temperatures. Conventional oils also collect water.

Synthetic motor oils are relatively unaffected by temperature changes. The molecular makeup of synthetic oils is steadier and capable of absorbing temperatures without loss of lubricating ability. 


Avoid Common Braking System Complications

Do you want to be a dependable and safe driver? Be sure you know the ins and outs of brake pads and how they function within vehicles. Brake pads are critical for the safe operation of your vehicle. Individual wheels are connected to associated brake rotors. These rotors move alongside them. Brake calipers refer to tools that manipulate rotors in times of pedal lowering. This leads to slowing.
