Boy was she right, from the very first minute we arrived we were greeted and all the staff were friendly, curious and helpful . They truly went above and beyond my expectations! Marty Hill the salesman I felt with was excellent ! He was friendly , easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. Staff also informed me should I have any questions to feel free to come back and ask and they would be glad to assist me . The staff at DownTown Volkswagon Thunder Bay gets a high five from me! Did I tell you how much I love my new Tiguan! What a fantastic ride! Good Job Volkswagon Canada! - Terrance M. 



The entire purchase experience was beyond outstanding. Everyone we worked with at Downtown VW exhibited honesty, trust and integrity and made our sizable investment in our dream vehicle a smooth and fun experience. We feel like family when buying or having our VWs serviced from Downtown VW. I highly recommend this dealer and VW products to everyone and its the only automotive retailer we consider buying from in Thunder Bay. Marty, George, Lida and Bert are all exceptional brand ambassadors for VW. There is nothing to improve upon and in fact, they are a positive case study in exceptional client service. We're loving our new Touareg. - Paul P. 



Downtown Volkswagen in Thunder Bay is the best service I have ever experienced at a car dealership. I truly feel like a valued customer and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. - Tiffany M. 




Great staff, very accommodating, and a pleasure to deal with. Took all the stress out of buying my first brand new car. - Tyler R. 




Downtown VW provide straight forward, courteous and knowledgable service. This is a far cry from most of their local competitors and really says something about the Downtown VW team as they are the only VW dealership in town (in fact within 700 km). Many of their local competitors are in the same situation, being the only dealership representative for the manufacturer. However, many of these dealerships take advantage of this fact and treat the customer with a take it or leave it attitude. This is not the case with Downtown VW. Downtown VW, in particular Lida, worked hard to get the specific car that my wife and I wanted, which was not a simple task as we were purchasing a '14 Jetta at the very end of the model year. So many thanks to Lida for not only finding the car at another dealership, but being able to have the car transferred to Downtown VW. We may have not gotten as much of a price discount as we hoped, but we did get the car that we wanted! My wife and I enjoyed the the entire process. We appreciate that we were permitted extended test drives with no sales rep present. Too often many of the other local dealers send the sales rep with you and force you on a 20 min pre-designed course. In these cases my wife and I take the test drive and upon completion, walk out of the dealership and never to return. 30K may not be a big $$ considering the price range of the VW line; however, we appreciated that Downtown VW respect that it is our hard earn dollar that we are spending and that we want to ensure that we are getting a quality product and service for $$. After the test drive the reminder of the purchase process we equally enjoyable: No pressure sales tactics, straightforward price negotiation and a concise, clear and simple bill of sale/financing contract. Also my wife would like to add the gift of flowers during the delivery of the vehicle is a unique touch. - Andrew C. 




Very satisfying experience. - Gordon C.

"We were extremely pleased with our experience. We live 5 hours away from the dealer (and any city), making it very difficult to look for vehicles on site. Once we knew what we wanted, Downtown Volkswagon did everything in their power to make it happen. Keeping us informed each step of the way. So we essentially bought the car over the phone. Upon our arrival we were met by a complete, curtios and knowledgeable staff. We would highly recommend their team (and have)."

I have personally recommend Downtown Volkswagen to several people, and this summer I brought my friend there to purchase her first Jetta! I really cannot say enough good things about Bert Mascarin and his sister Lida, everyone else at Downtown Volkswagen, from their head mechanic John to their parts manager Nicole, as well as their secretary Christine.

"We are faithful VW owners. Our new Jetta is our forth VW, so far. The dealership in Thunder Bay has always been helpful and professional. Every single person who works at Downtown Volkswagen is kind and knows their customers by name. Bert even ensured that we had a loner VW while we waited for our new car to arrive. There was even a small scratch that had happened during shipping, and Bert would not let it be released to us, until it was fixed. Marty followed up with us on all of our questions and phone calls promptly. George was professional and well-prepared with all of the financial paperwork. All a fantastic reflection of the VW brand. Thank you, Downtown Volkswagen, for continuing to provide excellent service. I know it won't be our last Volkswagen! And we can't wait to use our gift certificate. If only it came with babysitting! ;)  - Tanja C.

"AMAZING! Every person we spoke with was incredible. All were so friendly, welcoming and well informed. The vehicle wad purchased for our grandmother and after helping to surprise her with her new car great care, time and patience were spent showing Gramma her new car. Gramma was introduced to everyone in the dealership that day (which made her feel special) and she was told to come back anytime if she had any questions. They also offered to come to the house to show her anything she was not clear on. It is going to be a learning process for our 83 year young Gramma and each person went above and beyond in showing her everything she needs to know. She loves her new car, we love that she has a car that she is comfortable in as well as safe. We are all due for new and newer vehicles in this home and we are going Volkswagen. We cannot express how happy we are with every aspect of service we received. We spent 6weeks looking for the perfect car for Gramma. We knew what we were looking for, we had a cash budget and it was like heaven when we walked into Volkswagen. The search was over and we were finally dealing with true customer service professionals, true professionals in every regard. I could go on...

"This is our seventh car in as many years that we have purchased from Downtown Volkswagen. They are wonderful people, truly a part of our family as they are an integral part of our community. Dealer of the Year in our books". -  Justin F.



"My wife and I have purchased many new vehicles over the years but this is the first time either of us has dealt with Volkswagen. When we walked into the dealership we were not very serious about purchasing a new car, we were actually in the market for a new large SUV for my wife. We had driven past the Downtown Volkswagen dealership hundreds of times but never stopped in and decided we should take a look. Last spring I purchased a new Honda Civic EX-L. I hated the purchasing experience as much as I ended up regretting buying the car. After test driving a Jetta TDi and then a Passat we realized how perfect these vehicles were suited to us. It was at this point that we became more serious about buying but it was the relaxed "no pressure" attitude from Chris in sales that REALLY closed the deal. He was exceptionally helpful and informative and made our decision making process seem effortless. The next day we came in to do the paperwork with George and once again had the same informative no pressure feeling. From discussing warranties to getting windows tinted and snow tires it was light and easy (Chris actually took us next door to meet the owner of the window tint company). We scheduled to pick up our new Passat the next day around noon prior to a weekend road trip. We awoke that morning to news of an approaching winter storm and called Chris 2 hours before scheduled pick up of the car to request having the snow tires installed prior to delivery. "No problem!" Was the dealership response. CASE CLOSED!!!! That was by far the greatest new car purchasing experience we have ever had. Thank you for letting me become part of the Volkswagen Family" -  Jason C.

"From the initial phone call to picking up my car, every experience at Downtown Volkswagen always exceeds my expectations. Whoever I come in contact with at the dealership...Sales, service, management, owners....I am always met with a smile, hello, how can they help? They really know how to take care of their customers. From observation, everyone receives exceptional treatment!!!!  My recent experience was of course excellent. I wish I could help and provide feedback, but at Downtown Volkswagen, they have thought of everything." - Susan L.
