My Review Of Garnet Volkswagen:
I discovered Garnet VW from a Jetta Sportwagen posting on auto trader.com
I had never before purchased a car sight unseen and decided to take the plunge. As a Canadian, this meant taking a flight from Buffalo NY to Philadelphia and ultimately driving back 10 hours.
There was a slight glitch to the sale in that we committed with a deposit but the dealer had not actually received clear title from the State.
Luckily my Salesman was Daniel Stangl whose communication was excellent not to mention hospitality. Daniel picked us up from the Philly airport and took us straight to our favorite restaurant before arriving at the dealership.
When Daniel finally presented the actual car, it was exactly as presented over the phone.
We did discover a small cut in the upholstery but luckily it was on the back seat pocket. Also, when we actually test drove the car, I inquired about the alignment which appeared to be slightly off. Apparently the service dep't had done an alignment. On the way home we took it to Firestone and confirmed it was not aligned. Based on this lack of alignment issue, I gave only 3 stars to Quality of Work in my review.
I also asked Daniel about the missing spare key fob. Since the dealer was not able to retrieve it from the original owner, he ordered and sent us a brand new one!
Garnet VW is a really nice.new concept, modern, friendly, dealership located in a beautiful area. Even the girl in the business office was great (nice). All the paperwork was ready, organized and well prepared.
I never really thought about it until this last paragraph but this was probably the nicest car buying experience in my lifetime!
Daniel even sent a cute VW hat for my girlfriend along with my keys!
So, thank you Garnet. THANK YOU DANIEL.
Anyone thinking of buying from Garnet VW, call DANIEL STANGL--- He's the man!
