Testimonial: I have been going to Broadway VW since 2000, and through that time I
have bought 2 cars at that dealership. I would say the service today is
the best it’s been in 10 years. Hands down.

Testimonial: Always get excellent service……….

Name: Ann Shogren

Testimonial: I had an emergency repair and your people got me in that day and
got me out in good time. Since I was without my car, they had the
shuttle drop me off at home and then pick me up when my car was
finished. A huge thanks to everyone at VW of Oakland, esp. Frank Cruz,
who helped make a really bad day that much better.

Name: Claire Devereux

Testimonial: Wow! I cannot say enough about VW of Oakland. So considerate,
friendly, and attentive. From the van driver, to the customer service,
to check out…loved them all! This is my first time dropping off my car
at the Oakland dealership…you have a customer for life!

Testimonial: I appreciate working with Frank Cruz and his team at Broadway VW.
Service was exactly what I would expect and I will continue to bring my
car to their Oakland based dealership, even though I live in San

Name: Kari Silverman

Testimonial: I want to recommend Howard, the shuttle driver. In addition to being
a good driver (and we had treacherous conditions with the heavy rains),
he was very friendly and pleasant. He was considerate about the
temperature and the radio – and kept us informed of what stops were
ahead of us. I’ve brought my car in many times, and I’m always happiest
when Howard is my driver.
Marina is also a charmer. Always a bright smile – even when telling
me something I don’t want to hear! She has a way of making things feel
like “not a big problem” which I appreciate.

Name: Gina Garcia

Testimonial: Most people tell me I shouldn’t take my car to the dealership for
regular maintanence; that I could save a ton of money going elsewhere. I
would NEVER trust my car to anyone but Volkswagen of Oakland!
Furthermore, I absolutely love Marina!

Name: Juan Saurez

Testimonial: The salesman (JD) was very helpful and made us feel welcome. He did
not pressure us too much and generally made us feel like we had enough
time to think about our options.

Testimonial: Everybody was friendly and knowledgeable. I had a few specifics I
needed when I visited. Wendy found a way to make everything happen. My
Tiguan is awesome!

Name: Arthus De La Rosa

Testimonial: Thank you for one of the best car buying experiences we’ve ever
had! We feel that you treated us as friends more than as customers. Your

would recommend you without hesitation. We hope you realize how much we
appreciate your kindness and professionalism. To all of you at Oakland
Volkswagen; Thanks again!!!

Testimonial: Easily the best car purchasing experience of my life.

Name: Marlowe Crawford

Testimonial: I really appreciated that Moe understood that I was not going to
make the decision to trade in my GTI lightly and wanted to think about
it for several days. I spoke with him about this on a Wednesday and
traded in my GTI for a Jetta TDI the following Sunday. I also
appreciated that I wasn’t left waiting for long periods of time while
finalizing the deal. This was the smoothest car purchase I’ve ever made.

Name: Warren Hohn

Testimonial: JD was my salesman and he did a great job selling me on my GTI in
a low-pressure yet enthusiastic way. He and the finance manager were
very professional and clear in their dealings with me. I got a great
price at a great rate and I would definitely recommend JD and Broadway
VW to others. Thanks.

Testimonial: “…Marina is truly the definition of EXCELLENT customer service.
She is very detailed, empathetic and sympathetic to her customers. She
genuinely wants to get the problems resolved and to make her customers
happy. I am a manager at a major storage media company in Emeryville
which is one of the top companies in the world and have been in the
customer service field for years and never have I met someone like
Marina. I have nothing but GREAT words for her and her great talent. For
me to rate her from 1-10 is impossible because she exceeds that. I have
been to your dealership 3 times with my concerns and each time I leave
feeling confident, assured that I am driving a safe, reliable and well
made vehicle. To rate her from 1-10 then I give her a 20:-) She deserves
it. Additional, I’d like to thank the technician “Mitch” that
assisted with the repairs on my vehicle because he also demonstrated
excellent customer service and was very thorough when resolving the
issues with the vehicle….”

Thank you touching base with me. I wanted to let you
know that I purchased a car from broadway volkswagon this weekend. I
have to say that I really enjoyed your staff. As you know purchasing a

Thank you for support and keep up the good work.

Testimonial: “Nancy, Mike, Howard and everyone was very sympathetic and
helpful for my “kind of” emergency. They got me to work on time just
like Nancy said they would. Great team work! Definitely look forward to
working with Nancy again and can’t remember the other female service
rep, but she was helpful in the past! Have to say, I was not looking
forward to coming in and have been going to Marin VW instead, but this
experience has totally changed my attitude! Thanks, Nancy”

Passat Wagon.Our experience with the Service Department at Broadway
Oakland has been hand’s down- super!Especially-all of our interactions with Frank Cruz have

Comments: Dear Shoppers, VW of Oakland is
not your typical car sales experience; they were friendly, helpful, and
quick (imagine that). We had originally gone to our local VW dealer to
buy a new car and had to walk out in disgust after 4 hours. Then we
found Tony at VW of Oakland which was 180 degrees different from our
first experience. Tony took care of everything, we found the perfect
Jetta TDI and we were in and out. This was by the far the easiest car
buying experience we’ve ever had, we went from a dreaded (typical)
dealership to what I would call a non-dealership, we actually had a good
time, knew we we’re getting a good deal and felt fairly and honestly
treated. Even the kids were entertained with the TV, popcorn and
cookies. The ENTIRE staff was very friendly and made sure all our
questions were answered. I will be telling everyone it’s worth the

suggested bringing it back later this summer for another checkup so
I’ll plan on that. I enjoyed the new coffee and tea station as well.
