We’ve reached the point of fall where we can safely say we won’t get another 80 degree day till next year (or next week), which means one thing: winter is coming!

Yes, the snowy wonderland will soon be upon us, and that means icy roads just begging to whip your car back and forth like Willow Smith’s hair. One remedy for this traction-less malaise? Winter Tires!

As advantageous as it is to swap out your all-season tires for their wintery counterparts, there are many who try to sell them short. Many winter tire myths are created to justify keeping your old tires on, which are complete and total bullsnot.

As you may have heard by now, Volkswagen recently admitted that a ‘defeat device’ designed to cheat emission testing systems was installed on over 11 million VW cars equipped with the EA 189 engine worldwide.

Volkswagen EA 189 TDI Diesel Engine

The software that is installed on the EA 189 engine can detect when a car is undergoing EPA emissions testing and turn on the vehicle’s full emissions controls to ensure the vehicle passes the test. When the vehicle is operating under normal driving conditions, the software is turned off resulting in the emission of nitrous oxide at levels 10 to 40 times greater than what is permitted by law.

LaFontaine Volkswagen in Dearborn has been getting quite a few calls and emails from concerned customers regarding this issue, and we wanted to make sure we let you know what to do if you own or lease one of these vehicles.
