Oakville Volkswagen, Oakville Reviews (37)
Ask to deal with Alessia Lafrate, Zahir Dukhan and Eriona Zallqi.
Alessia Lafrate and Zahir Dukhan listened to my needs both financially and the lifestyle I wanted from my car. Unlike other car dealerships, they listen and are not selling you something that is out of your comfort zone. They work with you to give you the best car for your needs. I didn't feel pressured or tricked. They are very honest and made sure I got my car in such a short time.
Eriona Zallqi answered all my questions with honesty, professionalism, was friendly and accommodating with my request to get the car a few days early.
All 3 of them including their receptionist exceeded service expectations. I will come back here and get my car and recommend anyone too.
At 2.00pm I waited outside, then at 2.10pm I started to walk.
I arrived back at 2.15pm and politely asked where my car was, and was informed that they were still working on it. At 2.40 I asked why I was taking over 1-1/2 hrs. to do a simple oil change and was told they were working on it.
Now I was upset and asked to see a manager no one came.
When I finally got my car I asked why so long and I started to get a story \i did not like, so I told to stop make up my invoice and left.
No one ever said "sorry" it is taking such along time and gave me an explanation.

Thank you for sharing your review with us. Unfortunately, warranty coverage is determined by Volkswagen Canada and as such, we do not have a say in what services are and are not covered. I don't have the complete details of your case but I would like to apologize for any inconvenience that you may have faced as a result of your recent visit.
If there's anything that you feel we can do better next time, please let me know directly at RobinD@WeinsCanada.com.

I've been contacted by the dealership and they have resolved this issue
Reading about this Chris/Tom comparison I can't refrain to bringing my contribution to the matter: have you noticed that if you get lucky to deal with Tom when you drop your car, he advises you that Chris will take care of you further on? Why? - of course because Chris will try to squeeze more money from you any way he can and that is something Tom cannot do out of honesty. You will later in the day get a call from Chris advising that you need more work done to your car and they will go as far as replacing a good part of your car only to increase their sales. In some cases they will even tamper with your old part in order to make it look bad, it happened to me.
Be sure that every time you walk into a dealership you will be lied and over-billed, this is the their business model, unfortunately it is an quasi-generalized anomaly.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review for us. I can appreciate your concerns in regards to your experience at our dealership. Trust that we value integrity and transparency and we would like to apologize for any inconvenience that you may have faced.
One thing that we would like to stress is that we never have, nor will we ever tamper with a guest's vehicle unnecessarily in order to replace a functioning part as it goes completely against our code of ethics.
I'd like to get in touch to get some more information, can you please send me an email at RobinD@WeinsCanada.com?

1) "You must have a transmission flush, if you have issues with your transmission down the line and they see you've never done a transmission flush, it will void your warranty" - True for some VW models but not all, but he will tell you this as if it were fact without even checking what you are bringing.
2) "You must have an alignment done because simple driving over something like railroad crossing will throw your car out of alignment and compromises safety" - A statement I heard him say to a 50 something year old lady who was there for an oil change.
3) "We provided service for you today at a discount" - A customer who got a full synthetic oil change done on her car (same make and model as mine and same oil change service that I get). The oil change normally costs ~$120. Customer was asking for a discount and Chris lied to her saying that that is the discount rate at normally their shop rate is $119/hr and on top of it you have to pay for the oil. The lady believed his lies.
4) He will not go through the proper protocol steps to check your customer file. He automatically started arguing with me about me not having extended warranty (which I do). When I asked him to look into it because it is there, he simply told me that I would have to call my original dealership to sort it out. I called my original dealership who said it's in the system. I spoke with another service rep named Tom (who is amazing) who told me all Chris had to do was take one extra step and look in another window for the info which showed my warranty status.
Basically Chris will lie to you and is more concerned with chatting with the younger females that work there than doing his job properly. Overall, after a few visits you get the "Sleezy Used Car Sales Guy" vibe from Chris.
If you must use this dealership, please please do yourselves a favour and deal with Tom (sits closest to the door). Always honest, does not push extra services on you, will tell you if something should be done because it is simply recommended but is not mandatory, will not try scare tactics on you. Amazing employee and I will ONLY ask to speak with him when getting service done.
Firstly, have you noticed that if you get lucky to deal with Tom when you drop your car, he advises you that Chris will take care of you further on? Why? - of course because he will try to squeeze more money from you any way he can and that is something Tom cannot do out of honesty. You will later in the day get a call from Chris advising that you need more done to your car and they will go as far as replacing a good part of your car only to increase their sales. They will even tamper with your old part in order to make it look bad if you require to check it out, it happened to me. Secondly, Chris's sales behavior is well known but what has management done about it? - exactly nothing because it is in their interest. Be sure that every time you walk into Oakville VW dealership you will be lied and over-billed, this is the their business model and it happens in many dealerships, it is an quasi-generalized anomaly, while customers are working hard and honest and need their cars to commute to work businesses like this one will leach on their back.
In summary, the Volkswagen experience from the point of sale to the driving experience is the best I have ever had. Quality, class, reliability, comfort, and FUN all in one car!
