The Suburban Collection is one of the most well-known car dealers in and around Michigan. The company started back in 1948 as an Oldsmobile dealership and has grown substantially over the years. The company currently represents over 32 brands including brands from VAG including Volkswagen, Audi, and more. So, whether you’re looking for a luxury car or a used Volkswagen Golf for sale, The Suburban Collection is the go-to dealership to get the best deals.
As of 2021, the company has also joined up with Lithia motors, increasing its reach throughout the country. With plenty of brands on sale, they offer a lot of choices and buying options for a fruitful ownership experience. Most of the locations also include servicing and repair solutions for easier car maintenance.
From small hatchbacks to large SUVs, Volkswagen offers plenty of models to choose from and a variety of options. Some benefits of buying a used Volkswagen from The Suburban Collection include:
7-day exchange program
Whenever you buy a car, living with it for a couple of days can give you an idea about some of its shortcomings. With TSC, you can exchange your car in under a week for another one, helping you find a better option that suits your needs.
Powertrain Assurance Program
Except for some “As-is” options, all vehicles bought from TSC include a powertrain assurance coverage that covers the engine, transmission, and all other powertrain-related components for the first 3,000 miles or 3 months, making sure you don’t end up with a lemon.
Thorough checkups and assurance
Each and every vehicle sold by TSM goes through a rigorous multipoint inspection by the service team for defects and issues. The cars are only sold if they meet a set standard. All cars on sale also get detailed CARFAX reports so that owners can check and confirm the vehicle's history before making a decision. These reports will also eliminate any malpractices like odometer tampering, hidden accidental damages, and more.
Why buy a used Volkswagen?
Almost all recent models from Volkswagen's lineup starting with the Golf to the Atlas get plenty of features as standard including life-saving driver-assistance technologies. Build quality and refinement are also a notch above competitors.
Volkswagen models are also relatively affordable with lower base prices, and going with a used model will further bring down the price.
Plenty of options to choose from
One of the biggest advantages of opting for a Volkswagen is the variety of choices available. Depending on your budget, you can opt for a small hatchback like the Golf or a large SUV like the Atlas to haul your family around in comfort.
TSM offers all types of Volkswagens. Right from the entry-level models, Volkswagen has always been known for making refined and safe cars that offer plenty of comfort. But, they lack the modern technology of competitors, especially in the US market where some latest models are still not available.
Let's take a quick look at the Volkswagen range to give you a better idea of the options available.
The Golf is usually regarded as the 21st-century people's car. With a no-frills approach to the whole design, the Golf is as simple and contemporary as its name suggests. Available in different body styles from a three-door hatchback to a wagon, there's a Golf configuration available that fits your needs to a T. Unfortunately, the VW Golf was not as successful in the US market like Europe, and because of this, the older generation is still being sold here.
While the latest MK8 Golf is expected to reach US shores this year, it will only be available in the more powerful GTI and R trims, marking it as an exclusive choice for enthusiasts. A used Golf is an excellent choice as a family car thanks to its compact dimensions, spacious interiors, and sizable trunk. Even the regular models are fun to drive with direct steering and a powerful turbocharged engine under the hood. As a budget Volkswagen, there's no beating the Golf.
Another compact car from the German brand, the Jetta can be considered as a more premium version of the Golf with a sedan body style. Like the Golf, Volkswagen also offers a performance-oriented model dubbed the “GLI” which is among the best performance compact sedans on the market.
With bigger dimensions, the Jetta offers a roomier cabin and a much larger trunk space. It is also one of the only compact cars available with manual transmission for extra driving engagement. So, opt for a Jetta if you want a simple and refined compact car for the family.
Upgrading to the Passat brings a lot more space and practicality with plenty of modern features to complete the package. The Passat is also an excellent choice for families with a spacious back seat and cargo area. Compared to the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, the Passat offers more refinement and build quality.
In the booming compact crossover market, the Tiguan has been on sale for several years now, making it a good option in the used market. Compared to the standard models in Volkswagen's lineup, the Tiguan gets several advantages like an optional all-wheel-drive system and more practicality with a bigger trunk and passenger space. Being a crossover, it can also tackle harsh weather conditions like snow a lot better.
One of the more recent entries into the three-row SUV market, the Atlas is also the biggest offering in Volkswagen's lineup. To haul the extra weight, the Atlas also gets a powerful V6 engine on the higher trims. But, the powerful engine does mean lower MPG figures, resulting in higher ownership costs.
Like the Tiguan, the Atlas is also capable of handling harsh weather and slippery conditions with all-wheel-drive, making it an ideal option for large families living on the rust belt, and especially in Michigan where it snows a lot.
The Arteon is one of the more luxury-oriented options in the lineup with a handsome design and powerful turbocharged engines. It is also the most expensive model in Volkswagen's lineup. Focusing more on comfort, the Arteon lacks the dynamics of its rivals, but it makes up for it with class-leading practicality thanks to a hatchback-style design with a huge trunk and a long feature list.
Now that you know the lowdown of the Volkswagen lineup, you'll be able to decide on the car that suits your needs. And to finally get your hands on one, head to the nearest TSC outlet to drive your next car home.
