David Maus Volkswagen Employees Send Supplies to Military

As a grass-roots community effort by the David Maus Volkswagen employees, everyone at the dealership collected requested items for military personnel throughout the month of September. Over 15 boxes of canned food, plastic utensils, gum, beef jerky, sunflower seeds, and more were shipped via Priority Mail to five different groups in the Army, Air Force and Marines. Two of the groups are constantly in the field requesting any type of food small enough to pack in their pockets while on duty.

The five groups were found through a website called AnySoldier.com in which soldiers of all military divisions write in for themselves or their group in request for supplies but most of all a chance to talk with someone from Home. Within each box was a greeting card written with words of support and encouragement, signed by the employees.

David Maus Volkswagen welcomes the 2012 Beetle to its showroom floor, and hands over the keys to one local Oprah Winfrey Show fan on October 13th, who received free 2.5L 2012 Beetles as giveaways on Winfrey’s “Ultimate Favorite Things” episode that aired November 17, 2010.

Redesigned for only the second time in history, the sportier 2012 Beetle is a modern interpretation of the iconic Beetle design. It balances classic beauty with modern edge and no-compromise German engineering, offering enhanced performance and fun-to-drive dynamics that define the Volkswagen driving experience.

The 2012 Beetle was built to perform—it features a lower, more aggressive stance. The increases in width and length allow for better handling and increased interior space. These modifications complement Beetle’s vintage characteristics, including its unique shape. The second skin program allows customers to design their 2012 Beetles with an array of accessories for interior and exterior personalization.

Attractive options include a kaeferfach additional glovebox, Bluetooth® technology, iPod® connectivity, heated front seats, three-color interior ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels, the Fender® Premium Audio System, and leatherette seating surfaces.

The 2.0L Turbo Beetle, which has a starting MSRP of $23,395, comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, with the option of Volkswagen’s DSG© dual-clutch automatic transmission. In addition to the standard equipment found on the Beetle, this model adds Bluetooth® technology, iPod® connectivity, three-color ambient lighting, larger brakes with red calipers, the kaeferfach additional glovebox, sport seating surfaces, 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, foglights, three additional gauges n the dashboard, and alloy pedals.

The Beetle is covered under the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. All scheduled maintenance is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Warranty—three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
