    My 10 year old car was giving me major issues and as much as I liked not having a car payment, I knew it was time for me to let it go. I went to Galpin and was helped by Eric Menchaca. He helped me narrow down my options and got me the payment I wanted. I had a great experience overall and I'm happy with my purchase.

    Just wanted to give a big thanks to Mike Mehdipour and Jose Gonzalez for helping me out in obtaining my brand new 2017 Tiguan and trading in my Scion. They both made the process possible, painless and were very patient with me after being there for hours and past close time. Mike was very helpful and informative which made me feel comfortable with him and guided me in the right direction. I believe that is important when making a car purchase. He was also generous enough to make himself available to assist me with anything that would arise regardless of what it was, including making a service appointment. After having many experiences with different dealerships, Galpin Vokswagen has been the best!

    This is a review to alert people who have experienced this same situation with this dealership. Some of the car sales personnel can be rude, they over look you, and they won't approach if you don't look like a sale to them. On April 19, 2016 I called Galpin VW between 8:30am - 8:40am to schedule an appointment for my vehicle a 2012 Volkswagen CC, because the engine was presenting mechanical malfunctions. They gave me an appointment that same day at 10 am. My dad and I dropped off the vehicle, one of their service tech's (D****l) took over. He then lead my dad and I to the service office were we waited for Galpin's driver who was going to take us home. Exactly at 1:13pm on April 19, 2016 I received a phone call from Galpin's Service Manager J** W***s. Telling me that while their technician was test driving my car he had gotten in an accident and my car was damaged pretty badly. From how things seemed my car was a totaled loss, apparently the damages that were caused to my vehicle weren't repairable?! I was speechless,very upset, disappointed, but yet I asked if their technician was okay?! As I was talking to the Service Manager I got the impression that he didn't want us coming to the dealership!! I informed him that in an hour, or so we'll be there, and that I wanted to talk to his technician. I got thrown off when he told me to call my insurance and make my claim?! My car was under their responsibility. The explanation that I got from the service manager, a picture. Then he just throw the bs out of what had occurred. Weren't they suppose to get their insurance involved? Once I get into the dealership the service manager J** informs me that the technician was sent home because he wasn't feeling well. What a bunch of bs!! Obviously the accident didn't happen the way they said and they are covering their xxxxx! Galpin was buying time and apparently they were able to make a decision for me at the time of the accident, but they couldn't work out a deal with me after they wrecked my car. Ain't that some xxxx huh?! Until today I don't have a car and they don't care what stress they put me through, or how was I going to transport myself around. A xxxxxxx meal from the company's restaurant for my family and me a complement from a Galpin Manager offered to us. Wow!! In a way he looked down at us and over looked at us. Maybe because we were Hispanic and of course they know that we aren't heard much, because we are seen as small people. I looked for lawyers but unfortunately they weren't able to help. Even though I had my paperwork, pictures, and other proof. There was negligence from everyone involved. One of the receptionist from the Ford Towing site that works for Galpin and who picked up my vehicle from the scene was so rude. We weren't even there to see or speak with her. She alleged to my insurance company that my vehicle was dropped off after the accident. Really?! I have the paperwork, photos, and the phone call from that day!! This caused me stress, headaches, and a miscarriage. I also had to stop my plans because and things that I had pending. Every time that I hear on the radio or pass by the Galpin dealership it makes me feel angry all over again. For being a big well known Dealership, they sure didn't respond how they should of have. They are all talk. When you need to get a hold of someone after you purchase your car, you just can't seem to get in contact with them. I was a loyal customer for 2 years. Never missed a payment or was behind on payments. They are xxxxxxx shady son of xxxxxxx.

    I came in wanting to test drive cars to see which one I would like and come back in September when my lease was up to purchase a new one. Ivan Merino helped me out, he made my experience very easy and 10x better than the last one I had at Miller Honda. I told him how much I had to put down, thinking I would need more money, and how much I could afford for my monthly payments. Not only was Ivan able to find me a great and safe car, he gave me an amazing deal on the Volkswagen Jetta SE TSI. I was able to put down what I had and get to pay the amount I wanted for my monthly payments. I left the dealership with my new car and very happy with the service I received. I will be coming back to Ivan for future business as well as refer my family and friends to him. Thank you for everything Ivan.
