Fixed Operations Director Lloyd VanZant and Assistant Service Manager Danny Smiley invite you to stop by for a visit to see the all-new Service Xpress Center now at Volkswagen Tulsa.
Volkswagen Tulsa officially opened its brand-new Service Xpress Center on August 1 and invites VW owners to come by for a quick look around. “Volkswagen Tulsa’s new Service Xpress Center offers really fast service,” says Fixed Operations Director Lloyd VanZant, “and most services can be performed within 30 minutes to an hour.” Service Xpress is convenient, and it’s run by the friendly staff you’ve come to trust. There’s never a need for an appointment, and the technicians performing the work really know your Volkswagen.
Assistant Service Manager Danny Smiley says, “Fast is good. Fast and right is much better!” Service Xpress is fast just like the quick lube places, and they’re convenient too. What sets them apart is Volkswagen Tulsa’s VW-certified technicians who use only genuine Volkswagen OEM parts. This way, you’re assured that your VW is being serviced properly, just as the factory recommends. Plus, they use only genuine VW oil that was in your vehicle when you bought it. You’ll never be fooled by aftermarket providers or products at Volkswagen Tulsa.
“In addition to getting fast, convenient service performed by VW-certified techs using genuine Volkswagen OEM parts,” said Lloyd, “we are competitively priced.” Service Xpress is there when you need it, with hours of operation being 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. In addition to convenience, you’ll receive the peace of mind that comes with knowing the job was done right the first time and every time. And each time you visit the Service Xpress Center, your vehicle will get an “all-over” checkup that includes the interior, windshield, wiper blades, battery terminals and cables, engine drive belts, hoses, headlights, hazards, and side and tail lamps. They will also check the shocks and struts, engine air filter, fluid levels, pollen filter, exhaust system, brakes CV boots and joints, and tread depth of each tire. You’ll leave confident that any immediate or pending issue with your car has been pointed out to you with a recommendation and time for getting it repaired.
If you’re a VW owner, here’s something that should interest you. How well do you know your used VW? There are many owners who are unaware that their Volkswagen may have free scheduled maintenance and service available, whether they are the first, second or third owner of the car. Lloyd says that if you will go to the website and send Volkswagen Tulsa your car’s model and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), within two business days they will check it out and advise you if your car has been identified for a recall update, if any of the original warranty still remains, or if an extended maintenance warranty is available for it. It costs nothing to find out, and it could save you some money. “Half of VW owners don’t know that they have a maintenance policy on their vehicle,” says Lloyd. “Most competitors offer two-year warranties as long as you own the car. Volkswagen Tulsa offers free scheduled maintenance for up to three years or 36,000 miles, whether you are the first or the current owner.”
Volkswagen Tulsa also sells tires, batteries, and accessories for your VW. Visit their website at www.vwtulsa.com. You’ll find a wealth of good information about VW Tulsa, Service Xpress, and the vehicles they service and sell. You’ll also be pleased to find specials for service and parts. And when they service your VW, you’ll know that you are getting genuine Volkswagen carefree maintenance. Stop by for a visit this week.
