Veronica was key in timely response to my interest. Knowing I have a big payday on the 31st helped me commit. Transferring my gear wasn't as hard as I anticipated as Brandon pitched right in. Have a better sense of what dealer loyalty is. My niece's car died. She works at the zoo in Redrock's with big cats. She may like idea of a Tiguan (Tiger/Iguana) but that's a personal preference.

My car was supposed to have 3-5 miles on it, brand new!

My car was supposed to have 3-5 miles on it, brand new! It had 14, they broke the contract. I purchased the car in April it was at the port when it got to the dealership in May things were totally different from what they told me in April they did not give me the April deal and that is the reason why I bought it because of the deal. The salesman said he would hook up my phone to the car and show me everything and he did not you have to watch videos & learn yourself. I have issues with the car not even 2,000 miles I called them told him I needed to make an appointment that I needed a rental car they refuse to get back with me so I've decided to go to another Volkswagen dealer to have my repairs. I would not recommend this dealership at all stay clear if you don't want to have to deal with problems

I had an extremely disappointing experience at Suntrup

I had an extremely disappointing experience at Suntrup VW. My salesperson, AJ, exhibited behavior that was not only disrespectful but also marked by dishonesty and deceit. Despite paying the sticker price, additional fees, such as a surprising $500 no-trade-in fee, were introduced – then I was told the price shown on their website was only for people who financed through the dealership. (I was paying cash) details that were conspicuously absent from their website. The condition of the front tires was another concern; AJ initially contended they were within acceptable specifications. When I requested to speak with the sales manager regarding this matter, AJ asserted he lacked the technical expertise to comment so why did I want to talk to him. Eventually, they did agree to replace the tires. Upon our arrival at the dealership, AJ enthusiastically introduced a contest in which purchasers could throw a bean bag for a chance to win either a $50 gas card, complimentary floor mats, or a $500 discount on the car. Post-purchase, I inquired about participating in this contest, only to be informed that we did not meet the criteria. AJ's explanation for this exclusion was rather puzzling and lacked clarity. Towards the end of the process, after all paperwork had been signed, AJ informed me that the car came with only one key fob, a potential additional expense of about $300. My decision to purchase the car was primarily based on my trust in VW as a reputable brand, as well as the assurance of a VW warranty. Regrettably, my confidence lies with the brand and not with AJ. I sincerely hope that this level of deceitfulness is not indicative of the dealership's overall training. The One shining star was their service department. They did an excellent job getting my car ready for pickup. I would have no problem taking my car to get serviced at Suntrup VW. Jjust don't buy a car from Suntrup VW....or at least be aware of these deceitful practices.

Will was a great advisor and I highly recommend him.

Will was a great advisor and I highly recommend him. He was responsive and knowledgeable. I cannot say the same for the management of the dealership. I went in to purchase a vehicle on Saturday morning. Test drive and negotiations were stress free. Once we were deep into the finance process we were notified that the car needed to be serviced and cleaned as it had not been serviced or inputted and that the car would not ready until Monday morning. We were assured it would be at the front of the line. On Monday we were told that 3 technicians called out of work and they were short staffed but they would try to get the car done. Monday afternoon we were told they were really trying but it was probably going to be Tuesday and that we would for sure have the car by 11:30. Tuesday afternoon I called my advisor and asked for a manager to call me. No call came so I called the dealership and asked to speak to a manager. He was too busy since they were short staffed but said he would call. It is now Wednesday at 11 am and I do not have a car nor has a manager returned my call. The advisors at this dealership are great, but I cannot say the same thing for the management. It appears that they are more focused on signing new deals than they are with keeping clients happy and learning how to correctly staff a dealership.
