"Smooth, low pressure car buying"
I'm very pleased with my experience buying a car from Jim Ellis VW. Honestly, I have always avoided car dealers and this was my first time buying a car from a dealer. I knew pretty much what I was looking for but I also was shopping around within a particular model family. I worked with Torre the entire time and he could not have been more relaxed and low pressure. I was test driving CPO Golf TDIs and much more expensive new GTI Autobahns. When I finally decided on a CPO 2017 Golf TSI, there was no pressure from Torre to buy the more expensive one and price negotiation was very easy. We were able to agree on what I consider a very fair price for the value I'm getting from the car.
When I sat down with Karl to talk financing, I was fully expecting the high pressure pitch to buy tons of add-ons. We discussed my financing options (I was already pre-approved through an outside source) and I ended up agreeing to finance through VW since they came back with a competitive rate. At this time Karl reviewed some of the Jim Ellis protection and prepaid maintenance packages with me and while he tried for a bit to get me to consider them (it's part of his job to sell them after all) he was not pushy and there was no pressure - either way I wasn't interested. I was honestly expecting the worst as I have read horror stories on the internet about pushy F&I managers at car dealerships all over the country. Karl was easy to work with and we had the deal done in about 30 minutes from the time I sat down. Easy peasy.
I would HIGHLY recommend Jim Ellis VW and specifically Torre and Karl to anyone in the Atlanta area looking for a new or used VW.

Best car buying experience ever. Torre Solomon is an excellent car salesman. He is knowledgeable about his product, friendly and all around nice guy, who also happens to be a car guy. What a rare combination in the car sales business. There is also a lot to be said for the Jim Ellis dealership. Well run, family owned and has many long time employees, that alone says a lot about the owners. Try Jim Ellis Volkswagen out and ask for Torre Solomon, you will be glad you did. I purchased a used 2012 Jetta TDI Sportwagen with a DSG transmission and I'm loving it.
