About your Volkswagen
Exceptional performance. Stylish functionality. Unbeatable safety. Your Volkswagen, “the people’s car,” is a reliable and award-winning vehicle with these best-selling models in the US: the Passat; the Beetle; and the Golf.
Since its 1946 creation in Germany, safety has been the hallmark of Volkswagen, making it ideal for navigating the rough and mountainous terrain and changing weather conditions in Boulder, Colorado. Blind-spot detection, active and passive safety devices (i.e. anti-lock brakes and anti-slip regulation, electronic stability control) and forward-collision warning are just some recognized VW safety features. In fact, the 2017 NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has given the VW Golf four-door the coveted 5 star safety rating.
Consumer reports have recommended the Rabbit/Golf as a solid vehicle with agile handling and the Jetta for its simple controls, great visibility, practical cargo storage and lots of power. Front, side and rollover-tested, the Jetta safety stats scored high on:
• roof strength
• rear impact protection
• side impact protection
• small overlap front tests
• moderate overlap front tests

Synonymous with luxury and style, Volkswagen’s detailing, responsive handling, comfort and powerful turbo-charged engine have made it a perfect fit for Boulder’s active lifestyle. But even Volkswagen’s need some Tender Loving Care. And when the time comes for some VW TLC, we’re here for you.

So when it comes to maintenance, you want to be sure your Volkswagen enters a reputable, knowledgeable and reliable auto repair shop. In Boulder, CO Independent Motors is backed by years of experience and specialized expertise to answer the most frequently asked questions about your Volkswagen:
Can I wait until 10k between oil changes?
We recommend an oil change every 5K. A small price to pay to protect your Volkswagen’s engine.
Why does my radio say safe after the battery is disconnected?
The radio’s theft deterrence is activated when power is lost. A code will have to be entered to restore function. This code is provided with the owner’s manual when the vehicle is purchased.
Why do I need to replace my brake rotors when I need brakes?
On German cars the brake rotors and pads wear together and are designed to be replaced at the same time for maximum braking performance.
Why are my brakes noisy on cold mornings?
The brakes can be noisy after sitting over night from condensation. The noise should stop once the car has been driven for a short distance. If the noise persists there may be an issue with the brakes that should be checked out asap.
Why is my check engine light on?
VW’s can potentially have one or many different trouble codes stored when the CEL comes on. That’s why we offer an initial free repair assessment by checking the stored codes and for any obvious under hood problems. If further diagnoses are required we have experienced mechanics and the best diagnostic equipment to ensure we address the problem the first time around.
