"Highly recommend "
- Golf Alltrack
My experience of purchasing a Golf Alltrack at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford last weekend was completely positive throughout the entire process.
My time was limited, so I initially decided to send an email to several dealerships with my inquiries about my wishlist. In hindsight, that probably wasn’t the best idea as I was flooded with promotional and borderline-harassing emails trying to get me to visit the dealerships and ignoring my requests for specific information. I made an appointment to visit the dealership closest to my home. The salesperson never showed up (although she confirmed 15 minutes prior). I eventually met with another salesperson and then with a manager, expressing strong interest in buying a car. The manager didn’t follow up as he said he would and never responded to my last email.
I then spoke with Jason Giacoppo from Colonial Volkswagen of Medford who had the distinction of being the only person to send me a single email that answered my specific questions with helpful information. I explained my time restraints, and he described how all of the steps in buying a car could be broken up in a manner that would not require me to spend an entire afternoon at the dealership. (His eventual proposal of the pricing for my trade-in and new car was completely fair. However, he was open to adjusting the price due to a miscommunication. The miscommunication only existed because Jason was trying to accommodate my request to speed through the process. I am appreciative that he did not argue that matter as I believe most people would. Jason’s ability to be trusted exceeded my expectations.)
I met with David Jarvis and test drove a Golf Alltrack S model. In response to my comment that this car drives differently than my 2002 GTI, David shared a wealth of knowledge about the history of Volkswagen’s transmissions from his years of experience with (and love for) the brand, both personally and professionally. He even took me for a drive to demonstrate how I can shift gears myself using Tiptronic mode after I expressed concern over potentially regretting not buying a car with a manual transmission. David was very thoughtful of my time restraints and requested my preferences in prioritizing key features to be reviewed. David possessed all of the qualities I value in a salesperson. He was personable, informative, considerate, and a good listener; at no point did he try to pressure me into purchasing a car. He demonstrated that he sincerely cared about my happiness with the purchase through the quality of his follow-up communication after the sale was already complete.
My experience in receiving thoughtful, informative, and no-pressure service continued when I met with Stephanie to arrange financing. She presented me with many options in order to find the best deal that worked for my needs. I worried that my missing title would be a huge complication in the process, but Stephanie seamlessly acquired a duplicate title in a timely manner, requiring little effort on my part.
Without hesitation, I would recommended starting your car search at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford (even if it’s not the closest Volkswagen dealership to your home) :-)

"Amazing sales team! "
I am extremely impressed with the staff and sales team at Colonial Volkswagen of Medford. They quickly understood what I was interested in, formulated an impressive lease deal and found a car within 24 hours. They were very helpful in completing paperwork, doing much of it after hours. I worked with Caduste and Jason, who were both wonderful. Jason worked on formulating an offer after hours and on his day off. Caduste was so helpful at the dealership, getting the whole team on board. I am excited to be able to service with this team in the future and feel fortunate enough to have worked with a great sales team. I highly recommend Caduste and Jason, they went above and beyond!
"Transparent, responsive and authentic customer service"
I have been leasing a Volkswagen GTI stick shift for the last two years, however I recently tore my ACL and dislocated my elbow and was unable to drive stick. I realized I needed to switch to an automatic, and quickly. Jason was able to get me out of my 2016 GTI and into a 2017 Jetta within 24 hours. They were incredibly responsive, understood my terms and worked with me to make the switch happen quickly and painlessly.
I worked with Paul once I got to the dealership to drop off the GTI and he got me a loaner for the evening, walked me through the lease terms and showed me all of the features in the Jetta.
I am incredibly grateful for their responsiveness and how easy the entire process was. Each person I worked with was genuinely working WITH me and wanted to make sure I understood everything before signing.
I greatly appreciate the help with this change, and although I'll miss my stick shift, this little Jetta is a beautiful, speedy car!

"Researched. Called. Visited- Colonial VW was by far the best"
- Anya Tash
Did my research, called dealerships, visited lots- Colonial VW of Medford was by far the best.
I researched a 50-mile radius; Colonial VW was the only store I found who advertised AND had multiple matches available. (I think dealerships use bait cars – not Colonial! They had 4 options within my parameters, pulled up side by side ready to go, for me to drive and compare!!!)
I visited 3 different dealerships- Colonial Volkswagen of Medford had better condition of cars, selection of Certified Pre-Owned and overall price points.
Someone answered my email right away. He answered all my questions and never pressured me to come in. My salesman was terrific! I had a million questions and Steve answered every one. He never made me feel pressured.
After everything was finalized, I realized I lost the title for my trade- Derek was such a huge help showing me which forms I needed, he even filled them out for me!
I was able to find a certified Pre-Owned with a VW warranty for another 2 years, with a fair-trade value on my car and a very competitive price on theirs – I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend Steve and Derek at Colonial VW.
"Treated with respect and professionalism "
I am a Retail manager and customer service is one of my main concerns. My wife and I don't have a lot of time, we certainly don't have time to waste with people who don't recognize us as the customer and our business is important. I have dealt almost exclusively with Greg Cohen since i first came to Colonial Volkswagen ( Iwas using Britton's of Beverly until they burned down and was recommended to visit Colonial). Anytime I have any issue or question I call Greg. He is very accessible and quick to get back to me if he has to look into something. Jay Giacoppo is another individual I have had dealings with, he is very friendly and accommodating, has actually come out and talked with me on many occasions when waiting for service.
I am coming from the North Shore, there is a Volkswagen dealership near me, but I am willing to take the ride to Medford because I feel the experience is first class. Also on the many occasions of bringing my vehicles in for service, I feel they have been nothing but fair and honest
"Best Experience at Colonial VW of Medford !!!"
Our experience started off with a simple phone call with a few questions about leasing, the person that helped me on the phone was Jason Giacoppo, I was so impressed about the level of knowledge and the nice customer service over the phone, also the follow ups with texts and emails to arrange our visit to the dealership the next day. Kudos for Jason !!!!
When we arrived the next day, we were greated by Lydia, also very pleasant, and she introduced us to George Makrigiannis, what a great guy !!! From start to finish, he was the knowledgeable, precise and made the deal go very smooth. We ended up leasing a VW GTI !! What a nice car !! Best experience ever !!! Thank you to All of you !!!!
"Fast, friendly and honest"
I bought my 2017 AllTrack at VW Medford and couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. Jason and Dan were knowledgable, reliable, honest and incredibly easy to work with. It was the best car buying experience I have had. We will absolutely return in the future. Bonus: super clean, friendly dealership overall.
"Excellent experience. Friendly, honest, responsive service."
- Richard G.
I just bought a 2017 Alltrack with the assistance of Caduste Michaud at Colonial VW of Medford. He was terrace. Hard working, thorough, honest, friendly and funny. Also patient. He really took the time to listen to what I wanted and did his best to deliver. This was by far the best experience buying a car I have ever had in my long life. Jason Giacoppo was very busy but remarkably he took the time to bring a knowledgeable mechanic out to discuss a question that I had about the engine in my car.I was also impressed with the several staff members in the service department - Jodi and Drew.
