Service is top notch, I am extremely satisfied with the service and the employees were very attentive to my needs, they worked with me, provided a loaner so I could get back to work. The most accommodating dealership I have ever dealt with.

I would recommend this dealer.

Multi-Point Inspection Ratings Are Worthless

By James_s on 7/21/2014 at 4:11 PM. Helped by Michelle Gerger, Director of Customer Relations.

Need for service was caused by parking brake failure. On 02/28/2014, at 67125 miles, I took the car in for service to have the brakes fixed and 67500 mile service. I mentioned that the front, rear, and parking brakes might be at issue. The Multi-Point Inspection Report Card included with the bill indicated that the parking brake system was Checked and OK, 67500 mile service also included Brake Lining Inspection, Inspect Front and Rear Suspension, and Inspect Drive axles. On 05/05/2014 the rear wheels locked up as I was pulling out of the driveway at 69559 miles. I had the car towed, for $65, back to Best Volvo to re-service the vehicle. Based on 02/28/2014 service and inspection I was led to believe that all brake components including parking brake were ok until, at least, the 75000 mile service. Met with Michelle Gerger, Director of Customer Relations, at Volvo and was refused any credit on $976.57 charge or the $65 to have the car towed to Best Volvo.

I would not recommend this dealer.

The most condescending attitude of any dealership I've...

By JoeMatt on 10/24/2012 at 2:23 PM. Helped by Service writer.

The most condescending attitude of any dealership I've ever dealt with. Service writers think they are the only "qualified" repair shop in the area. Stop! talk to other volvo owners. I've found a Great repair shop with great mechanics. and No phoney you need to get this and pay this. I've owned 3 Volvo's and I will never ever go back to Best. I had a repair done to my fuel injection system cost $1200. I later found out this was covered under warranty and when I went back to ask them , they agreed it might be covered and told me to write Volvo! are you Kidding me? To top things off it wasn't even the fuel injection system that was the problem. I eventually got my monies back from Volvo. I've learned my lesson. I now for years take my car to Universal imports in E. Roch or drive to Geneva for service, 5 stars for their service,prices and mechanics.

I would not recommend this dealer.

By TiredAndFedUp on 2/23/2012 at 6:15 PM. Helped by greg.

Greg - service writer - where to start? lets just say this fellow makes the following phrase come to life. That phrase is: we are the ONLY dealer in town, we know it, you know it, and it is my job, no my mission in life, to make sure you never FORGET IT. management - they set the prices - Did you know this dealership sells parts at 15% or more over list price? That sends the signal to me that they don't want my business. I can only expect that they use the Flat Rate Billing book that justifies the largest number of hours of all the Flat Rate Billing books published in the market place. Management knows service dept is where all car dealerships make their money, they just seem to want to make more here than anywhere else I have ever been before.

I would not recommend this dealer.

By stressedchemist on 9/16/2011 at 8:23 PM. Helped by Jim DeGuzman.

We have bought 3 vehicles from Best Volvo. Jim DeGuzman helped me buy the last vehicle -- my "fun car." It was fabulous working with him. He made everything easy and always stopped to chat when I came in for service. I was sorry when we moved far away. We bought our first used vehicle from Best in 1991 and they truly have been the best dealership we've ever used!

I would recommend this dealer.

By Kabrunell on 12/8/2010 at 8:45 PM. Helped by Service Manager.

First, let me qualify that I purchased 4 XC Cross Countrys over the past 11 years ($172K) at this very dealership. Just had an issue with my 2009 XC90 roof lining coming unattached around sun roof and brought car into dealership. Was told that a minmum charge of $94 to just access issue! I was stunned and brought the care around the corner to local bodyshop and they fixed it in 15 minutes. Said no charge, but gave them $20 just because the service was good. Volvo's are great cars, but this dealer does not provide any post sale customer service even too a multi repeat customer. I know that our economy has put pressure on every product. But the day that our beloved car dealers revert to poor service, is the day we all need to find a better dealer We have recall work that has to be done on this vehicle and going to travel 43 miles to the Buffalo, NY dealer.

I would not recommend this dealer.

By diz on 9/25/2009 at 8:07 PM. Helped by Service Department.

Bought a CPO Volvo from them, second car I've purchased from Best Volvo. It's still under warranty. Since we bought the car, I've been taking it in to Best for oil changes. Twice over a 6 month period, I asked them to look at two other things: 1. Leaking coolant. I have to add coolant about every 2 months to make the add coolant light go out. 2. Rattle in the front end when slowly hitting bumps. Both times, they told me both things indicated no problems. "There are no leaks. It's normal to have to add a little coolant now and again." They even said they were going to add some dye to the coolant to look for pinhole leaks next time. And about the front end "our technician didn't hear anything abnormal in the front when hitting bumps." The last time I went in for an oil change, they had a line out the door, and though I had an early morning appointment, I was asked to come back later. So I took the car to a local independent mechanic for the oil change. I did not tell him anything about either of these two issues/questions. He got it up on the lift, looked at the wear on the tires, spun the wheels, wiggled them around, and told me my ball joints are shot. I moved both front wheels left and right to feel the play myself, they are clearly shot. Two seconds later, he tells me it looks like I've got a coolant leak. Sure enough, you can see the trails made by dripping antifreeze on the bottom of the plastic under the radiator. And if you look at the bottom of the radiator, you can easily see where it's coming out. Granted it's a slow leak, but if I can see it, I'd think a real mechanic should be able to. I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

I would not recommend this dealer.

By andyfct on 8/8/2009 at 1:55 PM. Helped by Tom DeLong.

I wanted a genuine trailer hatch installed on my XC-90 and Best Volvo offered me the best deal, which I took, although I had to drive a 100 miles from my home. The parts were ordered and came well before the appointment. Despite a Friday backlog, the mechanic and reception did a great job, so I was done even before the estimated time. I think it is a good dealership, but recommend setting appointments earlier in the week and in the day.

I would recommend this dealer.
