I went to Maguire to test drive the VW Tiguan and the Passat Sedan's. I set up an appointment with one of their sales associate before going to the dealer. I had been shopping around for a slightly used car for about 1 month, looking at cars that showed up on cargurus and other websites and drove to Rochester to test drive. Then I decided to look more locally. I was very surprised to see that the Maguire dealer had better prices then what I could find online and I only had to drive a few miles. My sales associate was Colby and he was awesome to work with. He was full of good advice, easy to talk with and very patient with all of my questions. I test drove a few used cars and a few new cars and decided to go with a used Passat sedan. Colby was very professional and handled everything for me after I decided to buy a car, so that when I returned to pick up and purchase the car, everything was already set up for me. He went through all the paper work clearly and also showed me all of the functions of the Passat, such as the stereo setup etc. He even set up the 60 free day Volkswagen Car-Net system. I also learned that the Maguire dealer has a great deal, when buying a car, if you are not satisfied with the car there is a 30 day exchange policy. This was comforting to know, since I was buying a slightly used car, it gave me peace of mind. The car that I purchased had a few minor cosmetic issues and Colby pointed all of these out to me (miner staining on the headliner and a very small dent on the ceiling, but they take all of these issues into the pricing of the car, which resulted in me getting a ripping great deal). Also, Colby showed me the car fax on the car with its history etc. I felt no pressure to buy this car from Colby, the test driving was a good experience because Colby really knows is VW’s. The entire experience was great. I highly recommend that you shop locally if you live in the area or check this dealer out if you are not in Ithaca, they have some great deals.
