Trustworthy Dealer - Howard E
I had been going to Bob Byers Seattle location since 1999. So I was not happy when their Seattle lease was not renewed because I live in Bellevue and did not want to deal with traffic to go to their Ravenna location. However, I decided to make the drive because Bob Byers Volvo has always treated me right. Also, I was impressed that Bob Byers transferred many of the employees, including Scott Thomsen to the Ravenna location when the downtown location was closed.
Feras & the Sandberg team are the best! - alissaparadise
I have been a Volvo driver for over ten years, and had found a Mazda6 that made me want to make the switch. I came onto the lot, with it in my mind that this test drive was to prove to myself, I wanted the Mazda. Feras Abou-Zaki and I had chatted on the phone regarding my price range, what I was looking for in a vehicle and my interest in test driving a used 2014 S60.
Upon my arrival I was greeted with a smile and firm hand shake by Feras. After offering me refreshments, we sat down and recapped our phone conversation. He kindly explained pricing on the 2014 I had been looking at, and an estimation of what my total amount financed would end up being. It made perfect sense after he provided me with additional information – I would need to spend more than desired on this car. To my surprise, he had really done his homework – he found a 2012 S60 that looked identical to the vehicle I was interested in and had it pulled up and ready for a test drive. I actually had fun on the test drive! Feras shared information about the vehicle, while getting to know me as well. I felt like he genuinely cared, as opposed to just trying to sell me a car.
After the test drive, he inquired about questions and concerns rather than jumping into pricing. At this point, I was super excited about the car and wanted to talk numbers. Feras presented me with pricing information on the 2012 and the 2014 which painted a clearer picture, of what made the most sense for me. I wanted to let this information marinate and really take time in making my decision. Feras offered to let me take the vehicle overnight, and never once made me feel pressured to buy the car right then.
I had decided this was the car for me and returned to Sandberg the next day. You cannot beat a perfect car at a perfect price. The whole Volvo crew (Feras, Winston, and the finance gentleman) really went above and beyond for me. The team made me feel like a VIP customer, even though I wasn’t buying the most expensive car on the lot. I walked away feeling great about my purchase, and even better about the deal. Special thanks to Feras, if it wasn't for him I probably would have bought the Mazda. Thank you so much!
Very helpful - newcarevery3years
We were in a severe accident in 2012 and while I was in the hospital my husband needed a car to immediately replace my demolished one that I happily purchased from Volkswagen Auburn :) He picked Volvo because of the safety ratings, but it was the ease of transaction that left us so very thankful and happy with his purchase. It was a devastating time and this Volvo dealership really stepped up to help us out for our extraordinary circumstance. To add, every time I went in for service the team was fast and courteous. Highly recommend.
Totally rip-off - bigapple
My car was towed to the dealer twice due to the same issue since the dealer didn't fix for the first time. The dealer didn't provide me any way to get home, at last we used Uber to get home. The next day, I got a call from the dealer telling me I need to pay $876 plus tax to fix this issue this time. I asked him whether he could ask Volvo NA for a good-will repair since it is a safetey issue, he said no. I asked him whether it is possible to just remove the steering wheel lock, he said no even though he was not a technician. He didn't even want to confirm with the Volvo NA technicians. A few hours later he called back to offer me a "better" price at $649. I had no choide, only let them do. Two days later, I got to pick up my car. I wanted to use the 10% off coupon from their website, but they refused because they told me my price was already after coupon. But before that I never heard of it, and I didn't see the applied coupon in the final invoice. I wanted to talk to the service manager, he refused because the service manager was in some meeting. I asked the number, he also refused. He also threathened me they won't cover my rental car if I didn't pick up my car. I had no choice. Later I found the service manager's cell phone and left a message asking for explanation. But I got nothing until now.
Worst car shopping experience in all aspects... - jessijean
Didn't even feel comfortable purchasing a new vehicle from this dealership let alone wanting to pay full price during a sales event. No sales found, no competent sales person, no working used cars and yet I paid 13,000.00 from this dealership for a vehicle that stopped working a month later!
This is what I get for wanting to feel safe because I am a single mom with a child.
I'd rather deal with the IRS ~ or get all my teeth pull at the same time without any pain meds.
The service is always excellent, Scott and Adam provide... - rericks
The service is always excellent, Scott and Adam provide excellent service and are very helpful. We are disappointed that the store will close but will follow them to Ravenna instead of going to Tacoma. We live in Federal Way so the trip to Seattle was longer but worth it.
