Volkswagen continues to invest in North American manufacturing and state of the art technology in the their effort to be the largest car manufacturer in the world by 2018.   With these recent awards it is obvious that they are doing something right.

Although we don’t sell new 2015 Golfs at Mountain Valley Motors, we can find you lots of used Volkswagens from previous years.   And we can service your VW too.  We are glad to see the success of this great brand and congratulate VW on this award.  Hopefully this will translate into more VW cars produced so that we can continue to sell and service more used VWs in the years ahead.
