This VW has the worst customer service I have ever experienced. We got some work done on our car at Marina Auto Body from the end of September 2017 to the end of October 2017 (I will also be reviewing them as well) due to an accident. There were a few things Marina couldn't do, so they sent our car to Royal to replace headliner and reprogrammed the EPC, driver assistance, etc. Johnson, our mechanic at Marina, emailed me saying that Fernando, a former mechanic at Royal, did not fix anything, and instead, him and his guys tore the new headliner that Johnson had just put on our car. They also did not replace two of the handles, and on top of that, double charged us for them. We tried to get in contact with Fernando for a month, but because he had a family emergency, the front desk staff at Royal VW said there was nothing they could do. One of the guys at the front desk even tried to convince us that the damage to the headliner happened at Marina and not Royal. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE MOMENT #1. After Fernando came back to work, we were told to come in to get the car assessed. This was a month ago. We met the manager or the guy in charge, Jason Brown, and he calmly talked us through the situation and said they would fix everything and to stay in contact with him personally. He said he would give us a call when the headliner came in. This was 3-4 weeks ago. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE MOMENT #2. Since then, we've called Jason Brown and left him several messages, which I'm sure he was not checked. We have not received any calls back. I will be going there Monday morning to finally deal with the damaged they've caused to my car. I'm disappointed to say my car came from this location. The people working here are slow, inattentive, they never return calls, they always try to deflect the blame and never want to take responsibility for things they've done. I never want to deal with this location ever again after this is resolved.
UPDATE: Since November 2017, I have had to take my GTI back to Royal THREE TIMES because of the headliner. In November, the headliner was too short on the driver's side and it was supposed to be a brand new one from the parts factory. In December, I brought it back to try again. This time, Jason Brown claimed it was a defect on VW's part, and that I would not have to pay for this at all. They did not have any loaners, but said I would be reimbursed if I went to Enterprise. A week later, same problem. The headliner was too short, sticking out on the edge and very visible. So, I had to bring the car back in January. They attempted to replace the headliner a THIRD time, AND THE SAME PROBLEM STILL PERSISTS. The headliner that is now in my GTI is also still too short, and you can see the edge of the cloth sticking out. On top of that, I have not received the reimbursement I was promised back in December, almost 2 MONTHS ago now. Unfortunately, I will be moving to LA this week and will have to carry over this problem there. I just hope that VW takes accountability for this defective part and properly replace it. If not, I will continue to write reviews and emails about this until it is rectified.
