How come every time I bring my vehicle in for service and EVERY time they find something that needs to be fixed? I took it elsewhere for another opinion and the mechanic there showed me that what was ‘leaking’ was minor, and a very common occurrence. It was not necessary to fix it at this point and he told me when it would be necessary to fix it. His quote was 1/2 of what Volvo was charging.
This mechanic also went through the vehicle and the first thing he said was what excellent condition it was in. Not a single leak.
If you are buying new, they jump through hoops; if you are buying used, those jumps turn in to a slow saunter. If you need to buy here, seek help with anyone other than Sam H. His customer service/people skills need work.
My recent experience with them (as a four time returning customer), was via an email inquiring into a specific used Volvo. Four days ago..! No response received yet despite an emailed promise of a response "within one business day". Not very encouraging for anyone thinking of spending their money there...
Started looking for a used Rav4 V6. The dealer had one on their lot for more than 5 months. The vehicle was in excellent shape with minor wear and tear as expected. I spent a week negotiating a fair price. Thought we had settle on a price with Rick. Rick was always prompt and courteous with his responses and I made my final offer pending the sales managers approval.
I contacted the sales manager the day after when I had not heard back from them. Jordy the sales manager then informed me that they wanted me to pay for the repairs the Volvo had done to the RAV4. I was surprised that they would ask the next buyer to pay for damage the previous owner had done. I also know they used this against the previous owner to de-value the trade in allowance. This bumped my offered price up an additional $800.00 over the price I thought we had settled on.
Jordy wouldn't budge on the price. After waiting a few more days to see if they would change their mind, I receive a call from another dealer. LA Mazda who had offered me a model year newer RAV4 V6 with similar mileage and for $2000.00 less and it included all the taxes.
2 Months after purchasing my RAV4 from LA Mazda, the other RAV4 was still on Volvo of Edmonton's lot.
