Vehicles filmed at Dealerships are For Sale. Make sure to visit the dealerships website for detail info about each vehicle. If your watching a video thats older than 90 days you can expect that vehicle to most likely already being sold, unless its a new car.

FYI - Charleston Car Videos on YouTube Started in 2011. Back in 2008 is when I started filming cars as a car salesman to give people a better way to see a new or used vehicle. Over the years I ended up selling over 450 vehicles from doing videos. Today 1000's of vehicles have sold from people using my car videos to sell cars at dealerships all over the South East Region.

I'm Chad Dolbier the creator of CCV. After High School I was unsure of what to do for a career as many young adults are. Instead of going to college I decided to start working in the car business in 2000. My first car job was at Acura of Charleston being a car detailer/washer. In 2003 our Acura store started to clear land next door and built Audi of Charleston. After a few years passing and still detailing Acura's & Audi's in 2005 I was asked to be a car salesman. In 2006 I started the Internet Department for Acura & Audi. Then in 2008 is when the car videos all started up! 2010 is when I left Acura & Audi and started my own car dealership video business. So far today I've built YouTube channel for over 18 car brands & dealerships. So enjoy my channel and hopefully you can learn something new! As always I enjoy learning from you as well so make sure to send me your feedback!

      New explorer is about to come out. The Atlas is WAY underpowered - read proper reviews by professional car reviewers. Packed with people and luggage the Atlas will struggle. The Ford comes in the Platinum and Sport trim, the new one will be the ST trim and for performance these cannot be beat with the Atlas being 2 seconds slower in the zero to sixty. Which means for general driving it will lack a lot of power. VW screwed up with the very weak engine in this car.

      Fog lights on the VW: turn light switch right to on, and then pull it out one step; pull out second step for rear fog light

      The exsplorer really is a good pulling vehicle in the snow, never actually rode in or drove the VW, guess the price would probally be what it all would come down to, had much success with VW throughout the years as well.tough call on this one.

      I’ve never been in a atlas since it’s vw latest car so I’m assuming it’s more high tech than the Explorer. This isn’t a fair fight thou. Why are you comparing a 25 year old truck that’s meant for rock climbing and hunting with a super fancy modern age crossover that’s meant to go to balls with? The Explorer is like for rednecks and ranchers who listen to country music the atlas is like for super rich diva chicks who live in Hollywood to go shopping for $1200 shoes. It should be more like the Q7 vs Atlas. Same country of origin, same looks and designs but different prices. That’s more of a head scratching decision right there.

      CharlestonCarVideos that’s true. It’s very famous car for the police to do patrolling. I like it cause American trucks are known to be extremely well doing off road trips. But yet again Explorers really don’t dominate the land of the crescent and palm tree.

      I'm enjoying reading your comment and getting a laugh, but I'd have to say the Ford Explorer has came along way over the years. Maybe my thoughts about the Explorer are different since I live in the South. I see so many people driving them here in my City, but the Explorer has some really nice tech features. It really is not just for Rednecks as you say. Also the Police Department seems to enjoy having Explorers on the road as well lol.

      I haven’t yet seen the atlas in person. Haven’t driven it but I am a VW fan and I’m sure they will deliver a great product. A little under powered from the specs I see. I guess if you you want a bit more performance you need to buy an Audi Q7. VW needs to put a turbo in there six cylinder engine. On the other hand, Ford Explorer is a nice vehicle. They do have twin turbo v6 that kicks ass. It really does. As far as feature it has all the standard equipment you would find in a VW and maybe a bit more. If I’m correct 2019 explores will be a totally new model and will be a more modernize version if there vehicle. Don’t sleep the explorer it’s an awesome vehicle.

      thanks for the great feedback. I guess you see so many Explorers on the road they kind of lose the cool factor in a since, but yes they really are nice and Ford gives you some Awesome features for a great price! thanks for watching and would love to have you as a subscriber to read what you have to say again one day. Happy Holidays, Chad from CCV!

      That Altas had a sunglasses holder in it but I was in a different Atlas it didn’t have one do you know why? Do some trim levels get it and some do not?

      Hey Alexander, I don't think any of the VW Atlas's have it. I'm currently driving the Atlas S with 2.0L today and the base model with no sunroof does not have the sunglasses holder. also the ATLAS SEL Premium does not have it. I don't think the one in the video has it either. if I did not open it and show you then it does not have it. I think its odd that it looks like its there but it does not open up.

      "German leather, leatherette", I wish they'd just call it PLASTIC. What it really is. Kill a cow, eat meat, tan hide, make seat covers, done. That's what I want. I'm leaning toward the Atlas. If VW reliability has improved since my last VW. Is Explorer rear wheel drive? I like the 4Motion from what I've seen on VW.

      Keep in mind, the Atlas is a IIHS top safety pick, the Explorer is not. The warranty on the atlas is much better, and the cargo room seems insane with a very good 3rd row. seems like the better family vehicle.
