Volkswagen owners and lovers are a special breed of drivers. Besides knowing what they like, VW owners are extremely loyal and willing to travel to get it. For VW lovers who live south of Quincy, that loyalty will soon be rewarded with the July opening of Coastal Volkswagen, located at One Saturn Drive in Hanover.
The new dealership, located on the southbound side of Route 53 just before the Hanover Mall, will sell both new and pre-owned Volkswagen automobiles. It will feature a state-of-the art service center with eight bays and customer amenities like a kids’ area, high-definition televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi in the waiting area. Coastal VW will also offer a complimentary shuttle service. Perhaps most importantly, the new dealership represents the only VW dealership and service center south of Quincy and north of Hyannis for Volkswagen owners who live, work or play in the Route 3 corridor.
“For two years, VW owners and people looking to buy a VW have had to travel quite a ways to get their car serviced or to purchase a new one. As good a mileage as VWs get, that can add up to quite a bit in gas money and be a day killer in terms of driving time,” said Richard Walker, co-owner of Coastal VW and a Hingham resident. “Besides the convenience for local VW owners, Coastal Volkswagen is a win for the local economy as we’ll not only be utilizing a site that’s been dormant for a while, but we’ll be hiring about 15 people to get the dealership up and running.”
Walker co-owns Coastal Dealership Group with Tom Norton of Cohasset. In addition to the 10,400-square-foot facility in Hanover, Coastal Dealerships owns and operates Coastal Nissan at 109 Accord Park Drive in Norwell and Coastal Auto Center located at 742 Cushing Highway in Cohasset.
Coastal Volkswagen will be open for business in the second week of July 2011 with 200 brand new VWs on the lot, including the much anticipated 2012 EOS, Jetta and Passat. The dealership will also have 100 pre-owned vehicles available.
“We’re positively thrilled about opening the new location and not just because our Sales Manager Mike Shea, a lifelong Hanover resident, will have a much shorter commute,” joked Norton. “A key part of the economy’s recovery is new small business creating new opportunities. We are looking forward to providing a boost to the South Shore area and giving VW owners a more convenient option for sales and service.”
