Our first Volvo
November 6, 2018
My wife and I began looking for her a newer vehicle. After driving Ford products since we were married 26 years ago, we decided it was time for something different. Her choice for the past five years was a Buick Enclave, but this was giving way to the Cadillac XT5 pretty seriously. I told her I wanted to check out the Volvo. On business, I saw one parked beside my car at the hotel in Macon and I was taken by its appearance. I didn't know what year model but it was an XC 60. We first test drove one at a different Volvo dealership and fell in love with the car. After an extensive search on the internet, we located a white/beige 2015 XC 60 at Northpoint Volvo. On our way over to the dealership, I tagged the car on a website search and was quickly contacted by our salesman Brian Matthew. I also called my sister who has purchased two Volvo's from this dealership in the past and she also said she had great service from the Volvo cars and Northpoint Volvo.
When we arrived at Northpoint Volvo we were met with friendly sales service people. We really liked the atmosphere shopping for this vehicle. From the test drive to signing the papers, the sales team walked us through the process without any stress. Richard Ramey made the paperwork process a breeze. The General Manager Mark also made us feel welcome to the dealership. They were willing to hold the car of our choice for a partial down payment and had faith in us we were serious about a purchase from the time we asked for a test drive because we both had a good feeling about this vehicle.
Aside from all the safety features of the Volvo cars we were stunned that the cost of full coverage insurance was the same as our 10 year old vehicle at full coverage due to many safety discounts offered because of their ingenuity.
Just before we drive off the lot with the newest member of our auto family, I asked Brian when the car needed servicing and to my surprise he said "It's standard policy that we service all cars before they leave the dealership. It's good for another 10,000 miles" . They replaced the rear brake pads, did an alignment, fully serviced the car and spit shined it inside and out.
We are now smiling and driving with our first ever moon roof open!
