The road conditions in Edmonton, especially during changes in season, can be described as unpredictable, at best. At Southgate Volkswagen, we see finding the right vehicle as being analogous to finding the right pair of shoes. We bet you wouldn’t wouldn’t slap on a pair of flimsy gel flip-flops and set off up the snowy alpine trail up to Marmot Basin, would you? We didn’t think so! Those are Folkfest shoes, anyhow. The same thing is at play when searching for the right car to get you around Edmonton, year round. That’s why its especially important for prospective car-buyers in this city to educate themselves as to what’s available, and what’ll align closest with their needs. It’d be pretty depressing to find out halfway up the mountain road to Marmot that you’d bought a summer flip-flop, and not the deep tread, crampon-bedecked, waterproof winter hiking boot you thought you had. Avoid that situation entirely by turning to an automaker who’s wide-ranging product line is bound to have a machine suited to your needs! Southgate Volkswagen knows the unique seasonal demands of Alberta roads and we’re confident that, somewhere in our extensive inventory of new, pre-owned, and certified pre-owned Volkswagens, we’ve got a vehicle equipped to handle your lifestyle!
