Most reliable car I've ever owned
by Manny from Broussard, Louisiana

Very safe and comfortable drives like a Lexus and has power like a V8. If you're looking for a reliable and safe ride this is it.
I came across Scotti's inventory online and I was determined to leave with a car the day I came in. I was obsessed with the car I found on the inventory and took it for a test drive. I wasn't really feeling the car but Mark one of the owners insisted I take a different Land Rover for a test drive (which he recommended from the beginning), he was honest and transparent about everything and I ended up purchasing the SUV that day! The finance department was so friendly and caring they even stayed way past normal business hours to get me the best deal! I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a decent car at a great price!
Great Safe Car - exactly what a Volvo should be

This car was a great third car for our nanny, who used it to transport our kids around town and for the occasional road trip. It was reliable, even stylish, and we always felt great that our kids were in a safe car.
Most honest car dealer we ever worked with, great folks, both dan s and skip. Provided a fair trade value, unlike so many others. When it time for my next vette, will buy from them. Car had a problem and they took care of it.
Completely satisfied with this car.

This is the second one of the same make/model, just newer. It is comfortable, has all the latest tech needed and a very smooth ride.
Spoke with Marcin about GMC 2500 on Dec, 5. 2018 discussed truck condition and made an offer on the truck. Marcin declined the offer and made a counter offered, I told him I would think about it overnight and call him on 6 December .
December 6 , I called Marcin , I made another offer on the vehicle, he excepted my offer on the vehicle and assured me the vehicle was in excellent shape for 2011 .
Traveled 567 miles one way to pick up what I expected to be a 2500 diesel truck in great shape. What I found when arriving at the dealership was a 2011 GMC 2500 in Great Shape as advertised ! How refreshing.
I’m a no nonsense customer and expect things to be as advertised and the negotiations to be short and sweet With all paperwork to be handled the same manor.
Marcin handled everything in a professional manner, the lady in the office had the paperwork ready in 15 minutes, I drove the truck off the lot in 45 minutes and was out of the dealership and on my way home .
That’s the way I like it . Excellent job Gulf Coast Auto on all points.
Thanks , Marcin , Lady in office and Gulf Coast Auto.

Nicely equipped vehicle. A classic look that holds up over years. Great performance very minor issues mechanically. A very reliable vehicle over the years of use with very few maintenance problems.
Alan as usual was very attentive, knowledgeable and charming and made the whole experience of my annual Volvo vehicle service a pleasure! All in all from purchasing my XC 60 in 2015 to the present, I have felt nothing but the very best in customer service - A genuinely terrific team!

Safest car I have owned
by Vikgik from Louisville Kentucky
December 6, 2018
I enjoy driving this car and feel very safe driving it. Very comfortable and enjoy the car play very much. Many safety features that are easy to work
Sales person Ralph Pence, the Business Manager Linda and Sales Manager Craig at Volvo Cars of Sarasota were professional, straightforward, fair and market competitive from Ralph's first response to my online inquiry about the 2018 XC60 T6 Inscription that they had just received and I have now leased, to the lease price he quoted with all necessary details that I needed to confirm that it was a fair and competitive rate, to the thorough, quick and painless final transaction to exchange my 2015 XC60 (leased through Volvo Credit) for the 2018 XC60. I have leased vehicles since 1972 including BMW, MB, Jaguar and most major American, Asian and European brands over the years. I hate sales gimmicks and come-ons designed to get customers to pay more than they originally were willing to pay. I have no set price I am looking to pay when I look at a vehicle. I want the dealer to make a fair profit as long as I get a competitive price or rate for the market and vehicle involved. I want to be treated like I have some intelligence and with mutual respect between the parties. I was in business for 47 years and always approached my customers and business peers with respect with no gimmicks or hidden agendas or tricks of the trade. Volvo Cars of Sarasota obviously has the same business model and I will return to them for my next Volvo lease or purchase. Because of them I stuck to Volvo rather than going back to Mercedes which I had leased (2012 E-Class) prior to my current 2015 XC60. That I loved the 2015 XC60 helped but my other considered option was an AMG Convertible which was quite a leap from an XC60. We absolutely love our new 2018 XC60 and are glad that we were treated so well by Ralph, Linda and Craig that we immediately decided to go with the XC60 instead of the Mercedes which was only 20 minutes away and the XC60 was 4 hours away from our home. The Great experience had made us loyal Volvo customers. Our 1st and 2nd Volvos with more to come. We commend Volvo for the move it forward approach to their leasing program. Made the choice that much simpler to make.
Best most reliable car I have owned
by happy owner from St Louis, Mo
November 9, 2018
Recent trip to Pa. 3100 miles 119 gals gas,26 mpg highway and 2 lane mountain. This car handled back mountain roads like dream even in downpour. I gave it a 4star on interior design because it could use more leg room in second row seating.
We just moved to Sarasota/Bradenton from St.Pete. My daughter is still in school in St.Pete so every day we drive back and forth...and back again for school drop off/pick up. My service adviser, Alan, was great about getting me a prompt appointment when my service light came on stating that my tire pressure was low. I loaded up my 5yo, my 2yo, and my 5mo old baby and headed to the dealership. I had a nail in the side wall of my tire and it had to be replaced. The tire was not in stock so the tire would have to be ordered and then I would have to come back. I think my face said it all...within minutes I was told they were looking on the lot for my same tire on one of the new vehicles to replace my tire with. Genius!!! I was in and out in just over an hour for regular service and the tire situation. And I did not have to come back for that 2nd service repair. That's customer service@it's finest.
Without a doubt the best car I have ever owned
by Doksplace from Big Pine Key, Fl

I bought the Ocean Race Edition through the overseas delivery program.
Spent 10 weeks with Indy the dog driving through the back roads of the French Alps and the Pyrenees. Twisting mountain roads were no match and I managed to stay with most of the Porsches and most of the Ferraris up the the Col du Galibier and down into Le Grave and Briancon. All the other power you need and the wide stance sticks to the road like glue.
Navigation System is awesome never needed A map even in Avignon.
Best seats ever made, period.
At 150 KM/H on the highway you felt solidly in control.
Room in back for an extra large dog cage a 30 kg Golden Retriever and
all the gear we needed for a 6500 mile Uber adventure.
The salesperson was very nice and respectful. He expressed every question I had and meet my expectations. I will definitely come back if I have any problem with my car and for any service I need on my car.

This car meets all of my needs and expectations. It drives beautifully! I would highly recommend this car to everyone. Love the way it handles.
This car meet all my needs. The car seat is very comfortable and much better than my previous jaguar, previous BMW and previous Mercedes.
Lights are wonderful to drive at nights. Breaks excelent. Best car for me.
We. Quit using this dealership 5 years ago based on their high pressures sales techniques- swore we would never go back to Germaine.
with new ownership we stopped by for a second price comparison -frankly not expecting much.we talked with Austin and 20 minutes later we bought a new Tacoma from him. No pressures , honorable sales person- great manager, perfect and easy experience- VERY impressed!
