I called Glen Cove Volvo on the recommendation of a friend from the gym and I am sure glad I did. I told Boris Rakhman, my salesman, exactly what I was looking for and he called me back within the hour with not only an incredible deal on an S90, but invited me to the dealership at my convenience to drive the car. He said he would be there when I could and not to worry about his schedule - he would make the time.
When I arrived at the dealership, Boris had a car waiting for me to drive and we were out on the road within 5 minutes. The car handled wonderfully, and Boris gave me some sage advice on color choice. It was a tough decision but silver it was.
My wife is a school administrator so she is eligible for the Volvo A Plan program. Boris sent me home to get what I needed to prove her eligibility, take all the junk out of my Grand Cherokee, and I was back at 5PM to pick up the car - which was the same car I test drove. It was fully detailed and looking great.
Boris and Martin walked me through all of the many features with ease and a mastery of the vehicle that I have never seen in my 25+ years of leasing. When it was time to complete the finance paperwork - no hassle and no fuss from Annemarie. The dreaded "finance meeting" was just a matter of signing a few forms and agreements and off I went. Even with this added "wrinkle" of extra paperwork with the A Plan, the process could not have gone smoother.
Please keep in mind I am not exaggerating - not only was this process smooth and quick (three hours from arriving at the dealership to getting home with the car). but Boris was full of integrity. Ever portion of the deal he outlined on the phone came to pass, and the car had all of the equipment we discussed. I got to enjoy chatting with him - he is truly a gem of a person and if you like dry humor he is your man. Sounds corny but I feel like in three years when I am back for another Volvo Boris will remember me, what we talked about, and we will pick up right where we left off.
We will be back at Glen Cove Volvo for our next car - we highly recommend working with Boris and the entire Glen Cove Volvo team. Great job all around.
