The Benefits of Driving a Volkswagen For On-The-Go Parents
All the Reasons Why Owning a VW Makes Parenting Easier
Being a parent means living a life that’s constantly on-the-go. When searching for a car or SUV, you’re not only shopping for the vehicle that suits your personal style and driving habits, but your kids as well. Your vehicle needs to be capable of fitting a car seat, lugging around sports equipment, and able to accommodate a few friends when weekend plans are made and you’re on drive duty. Being a parent is a challenge, and Volkswagen helps moms and dads rise to the occasion with vehicles made to keep up with even the busiest of kids.
The Volkswagen Atlas – Best Family Car of 2021
Volkswagen has won several awards and appeared on many “best of” lists over the years, but being named as one of the best family cars in 2021 by Parents magazine is a big deal for us. What’s even better is that this is the fourth year in a row that we’ve appeared on their list of best vehicles, which means we’re consistently meeting the needs of the American family.
For those not familiar with our award-winning vehicle, the VW Atlas is a three-row SUV that is perfect for big families that require lots of cargo space. It can handle any grocery run or camping trip you throw at it. The sheer size of the Atlas along with its turbocharged four-cylinder 3.6L V6 engine make this VW a force to be reckoned with on the road. The Atlas also comes with an extensive list of safety features such as forward collision warning, pedestrian monitoring, and blind spot monitoring. This is a vehicle that was specifically designed to keep you and your family safe.
Of course, no Volkswagen would be complete without entertainment features, and the Atlas doesn’t skimp on providing all the modern conveniences both you and your kids will love. The Atlas has Wi-Fi capability (with subscription of data plan) so that you and your family can access all your favorite websites and apps when on the road. The Atlas also comes with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, which means you can seamlessly connect your phone to the vehicle. App-Connect allows you to have all your favorite smartphone apps appear right on the Atlas’s touchscreen display. This makes it much easier to keep your eyes on the road, which leads to safer driving habits. If you’ve been searching for terms like “new cars near me” looking for the perfect family vehicle, parents agree that the VW Atlas is the perfect large capacity SUV for the job.
Low Cost to Maintain
If you’re an on-the-go parent who is constantly bouncing between school, the office, and after-school practices, the reliability of your vehicle is nearly as important as its safety features. One breakdown can throw off the entire schedule of you and your family, which means that you want to go with a car that’s made to last and won’t throw you any curveballs when it comes to services and repairs. Unexpected car repairs can throw off your family’s entire budget, so you’re in good hands here at Volkswagen Clear Lake since Volkswagen vehicles are as reliable as they are safe and fun to drive.
According to a recent independent study conducted by Your Mechanic, they crunched the data on the top thirty car brands in the industry and ranked them based upon how much they cost to maintain over the first ten years of owning them. BMW ranked in the top spot at a budget busting $17,800 with Mercedes-Benz coming in at the #2 slot with $12,900. Way down the list sitting comfortably at the #22 position is Volkswagen with a 10-year service and repair tab of $7,800 over a ten-year period. That makes VW one of the least expensive cars in the industry when it comes to service and repairs, outranking major competitors Subaru, Jeep, and Ford.
Our VW service department knows that repairing a vehicle is never convenient for the owner, especially if you’re a parent. That’s why we place VW parts and our services at a reasonable price point. In the event you need Volkswagen parts, you can be assured it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get them.
Other Family Perks
For those casually browsing for vehicles, you may have already seen the VW Jetta for sale or the award-winning VW Tiguan for sale. If you’re a parent that’s constantly on-the-go, you can’t go wrong with either one. In addition to having some of the lowest cost vehicles to maintain that are packed with family-friendly safety and convenience features, Volkswagen models are fantastic for gas mileage, easy to clean, and provide tons of cargo space with our large-capacity vehicles. They also can fit any variety of car seat securely and safely. That’s a big part of the reason why parents love VW.
