    Michael Page, our sales consultant, was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. He was respectful of our time, yet took the time necessary... to demonstrate the truly impressive features of the S-90 that sets it apart from other luxury sedans. He is an excellent reflection on Carlsbad Volvo.

    Business not registered with Carlsbad Better Business Bureau or Chamber of Commerce--for good reason. They're crooks. Operates under incorporation of... Glendora Motorcars--a used car lot. They do not honor warranties on repairs. Instead they will tell you it is something else, collect money for that new repair, and when that fails, they will tell you it is something else. DO NOT BUY A USED CAR: They claim to run cars through service dept. but I would not trust. I bought a used S60 which would not start 2 months later. The battery was 3 months beyond expiration date. Repairs on another Volvo always resulted in new but different problems afterward. When I complained repairs were under warranty owner--Mohinder Singh--said, "No one forced you to bring your car to us." --The warranty policy and expectation that dealer would honor that warranty is all that "forced" me to return the car for correction. High turnover rate among employees. Owner said to "be so cheap he scrapes copper off pennies." Once they have your money you are sunk. Don't pay service bill with credit card because you cannot cancel if work defective. I paid a $1500 bill with a credit card, and the car stopped on the way home. Had to be towed back to dealer. Had I paid with check I could have cancelled. Instead, CV kept my money and strung me along for more repairs, and when I figured out the scam, I was SOL. Volvo's are no longer Swedish. Company now under Chinese ownership. If you want reliability, go buy a Mercedes or Honda...anything but Volvo.

    Looking back, the handling of this purchase from day 1 has been highly questionable. Starting with the total misrepresentation of rates and repayments... figures, which were grossly under quoted to progress the sale. The only concern from their side was to get the sale done and they would say anything to achieve that. After leaving the dealership we were called back in saying we had an agreement and that they could make the offer we wanted work. On arrival back at the dealership, commencing the signing of the paperwork, it became apparent that the deal didn’t exist and the rate they quoted wasn’t realistic. We experienced so many awkward situations where we received contradicting information from the sales person and the sales manager, all together in one office. The final decision lies with us on purchase and that I take responsibility for, as we really wanted the car. Notwithstanding, that does not excuse the level of incompetence and the run-around we had to go through to achieve it. If that had been the end of it, I could have stomached the transaction and the blatant sleaziness of it all… In the two and a half months that we have had he car, we have had to return the car twice to get faults looked at and it has been in the service shop for over a week. (BTW I have nothing against the level of service received from the service team – they have actually provided a stellar service). The bottom line is that basic checks weren’t done to ensure the vehicle was in sale-able condition prior to releasing the car. Some examples include: two of three keys given to us didn’t function; the driver side door panels were loose with the speakers vibrating on very low-level volume (this had to go back twice to be looked at but is now repaired). Various electrical and system elements as well at the navigation were malfunctioning. More frustratingly, the gas tank would continually shut off. Where we stand now is the vehicle needs to go in again as more things continue to come up - remote start doesn’t work through Volvo On Call, collision warning lights have a VERY delayed reaction; not much good in preventing an accident and making Volvo the safest car on the road, personalized settings not registering and the ‘no-seatbelt’ warning lights activating only intermittently. All non-life-threatening, but these are the things you are paying for in a VOLVO XC90 T8 Inscription. With rain over the past week, it has also come to light that the windscreen wiper blades are worn. Something that I’m happy to sort myself but summing it all up, that none of his was looked at before they sold us the car is just plain sloppy. The icing on the cake, after having the car merely 2.5 months and barely driven 2,000 miles, the 40K factory maintenance light comes on. Its time for service and Volvo Carlsbad wants to charge us $750 for the convenience. Never have I heard of buying a certified car direct from a dealership and immediately after walking off the floor, being hit with a $750 check up. Why would I want to pay for things that surely must have just been looked at and fine-tuned just before they sold it to us? If they had any interest in the customer journey, after-sales service and satisfaction, repeat business or the supposedly good name of VOLVO, this would have been dealt with. At the very least most of the service components would have already been covered and they could do a small complimentary tune up. After all they have had the car twice and need to have it again to fix further problems. What could possibly cost $750 on a certified car that has literally just driven out the lot? I have tried to take this up with the owner and general manager of Carlsbad VOLVO over the past week and although he has promised to call me straight back, he just never did personally. A colleague finally returned my call and offered to take $100 off the service. This is simply not good enough.

    We stopped into Carlsbad Volvo to simple take a look at the new Volvo XC 60. We really weren’t planning on purchasing one. We were introduced to a very... nice sales person “Danny Costido” who really took the time to show us the new models and to answer all of our questions. His knowledge of the Volvo line of cars was outstanding, and when we decided to talk about pricing he worked with us to give us an extremely great price on a fully loaded car. The experience with Danny was excellent and he worked to ensure all of the typical hassles when buying a car were eliminated from the process. We strongly recommend speaking to Danny when your interested in looking for a new Volvo

    Another great car buying experience with Volvo Carlsbad! My sales representative was Danny Costido. He was attentive, responsive, and helped find the... vehicle that was right for my family and our budget. I really appreciated the consultative/no-pressure approach and willingness to explore multiple vehicle/pricing options. I would highly recommend Volvo Carlsbad and Danny to anyone looking a getting a new Volvo car / SUV! 5 Stars!

    Nothing screams a great deal with amazing customer service like deciding to buy 2 cars in the same week. Danny Costido was patient, knowledgeable, and... walked us through the pros & cons of the car, best payment options,etc. Volvo of Carlsbad was a terrific place to visit and buy cars from, we are clients for life. The new Volvos are unreal, safe, technology is over the top. Danny is the best. Thanks guys!

    We just leased a new Volvo XC90 from Volvo Cars Carlsbad. We were specifically dealing with Danny Costido who was AMAZING! You should buy/lease your... car through him! He was quick, efficient, and got us the best price BY FAR compared to any other dealer. We couldn't recommend him more. And the entire staff at the Carlsbad Volvo dealership were wonderful to deal with as well!
