I Completed finance application 9/26 on a 2017 renegade desert hawk . I haven’t received a response yet 9/30. I did receive a confirmation that the application was received. I’m surprised about huge delay
Great experience for purchasing the car. The obligatory extended service contract and car waxing sales pitch at financing but not too pushy. The dealership is under construction but a new showroom is opening soon. Salesmen Patrick was great to explain the various features of the XC60.
I just can not express how much we are pleased with this dealership. Ted my service advisor is my favorite person who always goes out his way to deliver an excellent customer service.
Thank you so much!
Ted was wonderful to work with. He was friendly on check-in, and made sure I had a loaner so I could run pre-Thanksgiving errands while my car was being serviced. The service cost exactly what he said it would, and my car runs great!
Purchased a 2013 BMW in late November from AP Fairfax as an early Xmas gift for the wife. We visited 5 other dealerships prior to our purchase and we are pleased with the purchase as well as the purchase experience. Up to this point, the wife is happy with the vehicle.
However, our customer service experience after the purchase has been disappointing to say the least. 95% of the time when calling our original POCs to discuss issues that require resolution on behalf of the dealership they are "in a meeting" or "not in at the moment" and do not return calls until a few days later. Two cases in point:
1. The vehicle was missing a hard copy of the owner's manual and the dealership provided paperwork acknowledging I was owed an owner's manual. When I checked on the status of the manual a couple of weeks later, was advised they are not responsible to provide such an item...Until I provided them the paperwork that showed they owed such a manual. I was advised the manual was available of pick up this week (39 days after purchase).
2. I was advised the license plates for the car were ready for pick-up (week prior to Xmas). Wife drove to the dealership to pick up the plates and somehow the plates were misplaced. I continued asking for a status on the plates after Xmas and New Year's only to get in a perpetual loop of "it’s the holiday season and folks who work on that are in and out...will get back to you." Finally, was advised on 03 Jan that no one knows where the plates are located and they are missing (isn't there a person that oversees license plate chain of custody or tracking?). The dealership representative advised I needed to go to DMV (yes you read that right…I have to go to the DMV) to request replacement plates as they are unable to do so on my behalf. I asked if the dealership plans to re-reimburse me a portion of the titles/tags fee that I paid when I purchased the vehicle since it did not fill its obligation to provide me plates. I was advised I would not be reimbursed any portion of the fee. As such, I asked to speak to a manger and was advised "he is not in" (surprise!) and I would be called back...No calls have been received. As such, I now need to take a day off of work ($$ out of my pocket) to go stand in line at the DMV (always an awesomely joyful and refreshing experience) as a result of AP Fairfax's lack of sufficient customer service.
I am hopeful my situation is the exception vice the rule; there are some really nice folks that work at AP Fairfax and the cars they sell are impressive. However, my customer service experience after purchase has been unexpectantly disappointing to say the least.
Getting my car serviced - dreaded event made good.

I dreaded taking my V50 in for servicing -- I've had terrible luck getting honest analysis on what needed doing and how much it should cost -- but finally needed to address some issues. Ronald could not have been more professional, pleasant or straight to deal with. He laid out what needed to be done, what could be put off for later and how some money could be saved. I will definitely be back.
After a 6 month car search Diante M. and Danny (the GM) made the car buying process painless. They are professional, fair, and a pleasure to do business with Volvo again. Thanks Danny and Diante. You guys are the best!
To Kevin with his persistence he got me into the door, to Keith who walked me through the most tedious paper work and answering my layman questions with patience. To Robert who had the patience to walk me thru the car buying process and explaining in DETAIL all the trims on Volvo cars. At the end explaining everything about the car and setting me up electronically! Keep It up and thank you.
I worked with Andreas Tsirikos and Layla Pouya during my recent visit to Lexus of Silver Spring. As a returning customer my expectations were once again exceeded by the Lexus professionals at this dealership. This is a first class operation and one that I would highly recommend to anyone in the market for a Lexus.
Finding the car you like and want to buy is easy today with all the online resources. Finding the IDEAL car salesperson is not that easy unless you stop by or arrange an appointment with IRIS HARLEY at Volvo Cars Silver Spring. We were fortunate to be introduced to her when we went to look at a car we found online at her dealership. With all the bells and whistles on the cars today it is great to find Iris who knows her Volvo cars inside and out. She gave us great insight into what the car was about and knew what she was talking about. When we went to pick up the car she gave us a thorough introduction and overview of each and every bell and whistle. She gave us all the time we needed to feel comfortable when driving away. If you are in the market for a Volvo, which you should be, this is our fourth, get in touch with Iris and make the car buying issue a smooth and believe it or not, enjoyable process. She is a delight. Her Sales Manager Noah Greaney is also an asset to the dealership. Straight forward and easy to work with. You can tell he has a strong background in the automotive industry with a yes, sense of humor too!!
The salesperson (Iris) was simply delightful, helpful & well versed on the vehicle that I had an interest in! The Finance team was thorough & efficient making the process not at all painful! I did my part & they certainly did theirs. Would definitely refer Herb Gordon Silver Spring & buy from them again!
Peter was wonderful! My husband and I were driving from about an hour and a half away and Peter stayed very late to accommodate our schedule. The car was ready when we arrived and he explained all the features. He clearly knows his Volvo's! The best part was he shared his snacks...we didn't have time to stop for dinner. Just a great experience!
Iris was wonderful to work with in finalizing our purchase of a used XC60. I did my reasearch in advance and emailed with several questions and Iris always responded promptly and pulled in her business manager as necessary to secure a great deal for us. She provided us with all of the information necessary once we got to the dealership and ensured our process was as smooth as possible. I could not recommend her more! She will work with her staff to get you into the car you want at a great price. Thank you, Iris!!
