"I just purchased my 5th Volvo yesterday. I drove all the way from Reno, NV where I normally purchase all my new cars. I made the 3.5 hour drive because Mary McKinney, the sales rep I spoke with has worked for Volvo for over 20 years. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Volvo products and they have a massive inventory to chose from. From Mary, to the general sales manager Bruce, and finally Mariah, the finance manager, the whole transaction went perfect. I will always recommend Walnut Creek Volvo, and will be back to purchase my next one."

"The service technicians have always been easy to work with. Alan Pierce has been especially kind and accommodating. He knows I work on automobiles and allows me to communicate individually with the mechanics. Many other dealerships have not allowed me to talk directly with the mechanics that work on my car.I have owned the following cars: 2002 V70, 2003 S60, 2007 S60 and currently have a 2015 XC70. The V70 was purchased via your European plan. I will be needing a replacement for our current 2007 S60 and wish the European buying option was still available."

"Simple, pain free, service was completed in a timely manner which I really appreciate. Liked dealing with the same service advisor. Really enjoyed that the owners now have a P1800 in the showroom. Shows they are real Volvo aficionados."

Mariah, the finance manager was very friendly and accommodated my schedule. She answered all my questioned in a timely manner. I was treated like a return customer should be treated....respect and a good deal. Way to go Mariah!."

"I called ahead and priced out a quote, and they stuck to it, coming in $50 under expected with taxes factored in! Additionally, I loved the special touches that made me prefer this over any other Volvo dealership in the area: they had a loaner vehicle for me to drive that didn't require me to rent from a third-party out of my own pocket, plus they fully detailed my car when it was done, so it felt brand new. This is the extra-mile service that will make me go back to Volvo in WC."

July 28th, 2017
"Detailed and timely communication regarding diagnosis and repair process. Consistent courtesy and consideration for my needs. Clean, new courtesy car provided. My car returned to me freshly cleaned and sparkling. Paolo always available to answer my questions"

July 27th, 2017

"Service team are excellent. I always ask for Paolo because he treats me well. Recently I was buying a car and mentioned that my old car needed some fluids. Even though it was the end if the day, he took care of it for me. We have a 2004 which is dying and he has been very conscientious about work that is immediate and cost effective vs. Other repairs that would cost more than the car's worth and ROI. "

July 26th, July 2017
"Great service advisor & repairs done on time. They had hot coffee and a pleasant staff. They offered me a ride to my office, home or BART station, which was very courteous. They helped us understand the different tasks and how it contributed to the overall performance of the vehicle. The car was returned washed and ready. Performance of the car during a recent long road trip has been great.Great follow up and Paolo is a great ambassador for Volvo Cars Walnut Creek. Very patient and thorough when explaining work to be done; He is  very personable when we meet"

July 20th, 2017
"Everything about Lawrence Volvo is great. Every single staff member - receptionist, cashier, service advisor, technician, shuttle driver - was friendly. And I didn't feel like I was given the runaround or being sold a service that I didn't need. Everyone I speak with engenders trust. "

July 19th, 2017
"The quick and professional greeting as soon as I pulled my car up to the dealer for a repair. Paolo went above and beyond in ensuring my satisfaction was complete. Great staff all around."

July 18, 2017
"Paolo Forrenza is a phenomenal service adviser. This was an expensive service ($950) and he took the time to explain what was being done, the importance of the different activities and was flexible with the service date. In the end I paid a little bit more and had a better service experience. The summer coupons were a big help. We moved this major service up a couple of months to take advantage of the $150 off and it brought the dealership closer to the cost of our local independent mechanic. "

July 17th, 2017
"Alan is the best. We're a two-Volvo family and had some significant challenges over the first year with our new XC90, but he handled it like a real pro - honest, empathetic, and making sure we were well accommodated. It's strange to say this, but I actually look forward having our vehicles serviced now!"

July 15th, 2017
"I would like to complement Mr. Paolo Fiorenza, my service advisor. He is very knowledgeable, professionial, and has excellent communication skills. Paolo has always been proactive to handle the needs of my Volvo. Volvo Cars Walnut Creek has the best overall expertise team members to handle all of my needs"

July 5th, 2017
"I was immediately welcome by a receptionist who seemed to enjoy her job! There were windows everywhere which made the facility open and friendly. In fact, everyone seemed to enjoy working with each other, which made me extremely comfortable as a customer. To me, this is a reflection of the management of Volvo Walnut Creek. My sales associate Victor provided me detailed instructions about my new Volvo V90. No question was stupid! He was patient and professional, plus he had a great sense of humor. My tutorial last about 30 minutes. During my 30-minute test drive, he also provided some great insight into the car. I feel extremely confident about using the control. A day after leasing the car, Victor called to check on me. THAT WAS SO NICE! Again, my entire experience at Volvo Walnut Creek was just flawless. "

July 5th, 2017

"Absolutely amazing customer service experience! One evening, I was perusing through the web and found site for Volvo Walnut Creek. I filled out an online form requesting information for the Volvo V90. Literally, at 8:00 AM the next day, I received a phone call from a customer service agent from that office. That individual asked me a number of questions and indicated that I would receive an e-mail/call from a sales associate. Within an hour, I received a call and e-mail from Bruce Mah, the office manager. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and demeanor. He did a lot of listening and matched to the EXACT car I was looking for. Right at the beginning, he gave me his best offer. I still wanted to do further research and found a website called "Car intelligence"which scoured the state of California for the best Volvo that matched my needs. In fact, they found the exact make and model of the car from Volvo Walnut Creek -- BUT, their price was a bit higher! It only reassured me that Bruce Mah's offer was competitive. Period. As a side note, I test drove a V90 at Volvo Marin and spoke with Lilli Mera. She was absolutely terrible. She said they DO NOT negotiate. The best she could do was provide $1500 off MSRP whereas Bruce Mah offered close to $3500 off MSRP. She didn't care to follow-up with me, nor did she care to even really want my business. My partner and I would NEVER return to the dealership -- ever. After my lease ends in three years, I intend to return to Volvo Walnut Creek to either lease or buy a new car. Everyone on team was caring, professional, and genuinely cared about me. THANK YOU Volvo Walnut Creek!"

"Long term relationship with my service representative. Help with cost containment of costly services. Responsiveness. Loaner vehicles available. I am aware their are cheaper repairs places but these perks make it worthwhile plus the greater familiarity of a Volvo dealer with Volvo cars."

June 27th, 2017
"We were very happy with the sales assistance we got from Mary, Greg, and Mariah. First, Mary showed me the pre-owned vehicles on the lot and gave detailed, informative answers to questions about the car we ended up buying. The next day, Mary was unavailable, so Greg took over and he answered my wife's questions and arranged our test drive. Everything seemed right. We did a little negotiating through Greg, settled on the price and decided to buy the car. Mariah guided us through the various extended warranty options so we could make decisions and complete our purchase. Greg arranged to have the service department do a little more work on a scratch we found on the car and to get the car ready for me to pick up. When I came to pick it up, Greg spent quite a while orienting me to our new car, helped me with the preferences for the dash displays and other optional settings. With Greg's help, I was very confident driving away in the car, knowing I understood its special features. It felt like "our car." Near the end, Greg discovered that one feature wasn't working right. He quickly got the service manager, who looked at the car and decided it couldn't be fixed on the spot. Greg arranged for me to bring the car back a few days later to get the minor defect corrected. That went smoothly, too.  
I'm sure that Mariah is aware that going through the warranty options was the least enjoyable part of buying the car. She was very helpful, under the circumstances, in guiding us through the choices we had to make. She was very patient, maintained a friendly, positive attitude throughout, answered our questions clearly, and helped us make the right decisions for us"

June 25th, 2017
"By far, my experience at Volvo Walnut Creek was flawless. In fact, it was the best car leasing experience I've ever encountered. I started my search by going to Cartelligent and paying a hefty fee of $495 so that they can do a search of a V90 with the specifications I desired. In addition, I also did web searches on all the Bay Area Volvo websites and requested info from each of them. I immediately received a response from a customer service associate from Volvo Walnut Creek who asked more detailed questions about my specifications. (the other Volvo deals lagged in their response time). Within the next few hours, I received an e-mail message from Bruce Mah, the General Sales Manager. He had the car I wanted and immediately provided me the best price for it. My gut instinct was that it was a terrific deal, but I wanted Cartelligent to determine if they could find a better one out there. Well, I soon discovered that Bruce's deal was equal to that of the best deal Cartelligent could identify! In addition, Bruce was always responsive to my questions and concerns via e-mail. By the time I actually visited the offices, I was ready to test drive and lease. The sales associate, Victor, was equally professional and responsive. He answered all of my questions without being overbearing or condescending. I just LOVE my new Volvo. And, more importantly, I LOVE the team at Volvo Walnut Creek"

June 16th 2017

"Very thorough on an involved repair. Kept me informed. Got us a courtesy car for the day we needed it.Have always had excellent service with Paolo. He even took me back to show me the work being done which I liked. Thanks to Paolo and Paul, the service tech!"

June 11th, 2017 

"I like the fact that the transaction is simple, the price is the price, and the deal was easy. It took some time, but less than I have previously experienced. The staff are pleasant, full of information, and there is no pressure. Everything was easy."

June 9th, 2017

"I really appreciate the loaner car! It helps greatly as I live out of the area now. I also LOVE working with Paulo! he responds to my calls and questions right away and is very helpful! Thanks Paulo! "

June 8th, 2017

"Paolo Firenza is the BEST!!!! He always takes care of our car and goes above and beyond! We have been a Volvo family for 40 years and people like Paolo are why we keep coming back!"

June 5th 2017

"The people always make me feel welcome. They are respectful & courteous. The Service Advisors are knowledgeable & are good communicators. "

June, 2, 2017 

This was the most painless car-buying experience I ever had. I actually enjoyed the process. Bruce was open to work with me on-line, was very prompt in responding to my inquiries and to negotiating. I will highly recommend this dealership to my friends and family.

May 22nd, 2017

Alan is a great Service Advisor. He listens to my concerns and we discuss together, the best plan of actions. This is preferred as there are no surprises, makes me feel more comfortable. Follow up call to check that everything is good makes a good experience. Service scheduling and work turn around time is fantastic, great to be a client of Volvo Walnut Creek.


May 19th, 2017

"I liked everything about my experience at Volvo Cars of Walnut Creek. When I scheduled the appointment the girl was very professional on the phone. The morning of my appointment, Alan greeted me right away and was also very professional. Everything ran smooth and I was very happy with my experience."

May 16th, 2017

"Mary and Mark are the true stars who won my business in my choosing of Volvo Walnut Creek as the place to lease my Inscription. Unlike some other dealers, they are very forthcoming on their pricing and confident on their competitiveness, yet fully respect and understand my right as a customer to compare pricing among different dealers and my reluctance to commit on my first visit. That is why even though I may be able to get a slightly getter deal with other dealers had I persisted and bargained more, I chose to deal with Mary and Mark. Mary is also very patient and through in walking me over the exciting features of the Inscription, which I greatly appreciate! "

May 15th, 2017

"The Service Team, headed by Paulo is the best I have seen in the industry! Friendly reception, on time, polite, patient with questions, everything explained, no surprises, great car wash and above all else, professional-expert Technicians. "

May 14th 2017

"They treat you like family. I trust the team. I like the fact that I see the same friendly people when I come in"

May 12th, 2017

"I was so impressed by Greg Schiefer's professionalism and courtesy as a sales agent. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout all stages of the process. I negotiated the deal remotely (I live in Los Angeles and he's in Northern California), and when I arrived in the Bay Area, he had a driver pick me up from the transit station in Walnut Creek. Everything about my visit to Volvo Cars of Walnut Creek was exceptional: the facility was clean and inviting; all sales, finance and operations personnel were friendly, courteous and expert in their areas; and the steps to finalizing the transaction were clear and efficient. "

May 8th, 2017

"Check in was easy and my car was completed ahead of schedule. The waiting area is comfortable and they are very dog friendly!! This dealership takes the stress out of service calls."

May 4th, 2017
"Where do I start? I live in Burlingame and I enjoy the drive to Walnut Creek. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I also like the family feel the dealership has. :) Looking forward to becoming a regular!!! I'm very happy. I use to go to Marin Volvo and Grant Bos was my service advisor for years. I found out that Grant was no longer working for the Marin dealership and is now with you and I decided to follow! I love Grant, he's the best! He introduced me to Paolo and now he's my new service advisor and I'm starting to get the same feeling. Paolo is a really nice guy and so far he has handle all of my needs like a champ!!!! "

May 2nd, 2017

"Car was sparkling clean, all staff were helpful, Allan explained the service so I could easily understand,I was transported to and from my home after car was dropped off for service .It was a very pleasant experience all around, thank you. 

April 26th,  2017

"Alan was able to arrange to service my car the same day I came in without an appointment. It was done quickly and they even washed the car when it was done. Everything was just great, Keep up the good work"

April 20th, 2017

"Friendly, informative service. Had paperwork all ready. Greeted me immediately. Had a nice Volvo loaner car available for me right away. Called me as soon as my car was ready. Explained everything they were going to do. Chip was excellent contact!"
- Catherine

April 17th, 2017

The focus is always getting my car repairs done as quickly as possible. I love my Volvo and the way that I am treated at the dealership. Allan is my service representative and he does an excellent job."

April 17th,2017

"One of the main reasons we have just purchased a new XC 90 T6 is that we trust Bruce Mah and Alan Pierce completely and value their knowledge and honesty. We have owned 7 Volvos and have loved every one of them but we are fiercely loyal to your dealership because of the relationship we have developed with Bruce and Alan. "

April 14th, 2017

"My service rep, Alan Pierce, made the process of repairing the driver's side door handle as easy and manageable as possible. This, in fact, is something he always does. I appreciated the loaner car very much, that my car was ready faster than even expected and that Alan asked someone to open my door for me when I came to drop it off - so that I didn't have to climb to the other door that worked in the front of the car. "

April 13th, 2017
Paulo, our service advisor as usual was terrific. He kept me up to date on the status of my car. When I could not pick up my car until late, he arrange to have my car ready when I could get there. I have unusual stains on the hood of my car. Since my car is less than a year old, they are taking care of it. Great service!

April 12th,

"The ability to discuss in layman terms an issue with the technician, including a road test to confirm a noise heard 2) When the details of the repair were being discussed, I felt the fact that I maintain my two current, and one past, Volvo vehicles to factory standards was very well considered and I cannot express many gratitude enough for the assistance I received. In the six years that I have been bringing our XC90 to this location, the same two service advisors have worked with us. This speaks volumes to what your operation does to retain great employees"

April 7th, 2017

"Alan Pierce took care of my needs this visit and did his typical friendly and thoughtful job. All other service reps I have encountered in past visits have likewise been friendly and competent. I have purchased four Volvos from this dealership and had all of my servicing done there. I was very happy to see that many of the service crew has remained with the dealership after the change of ownership. "

April 7th, 2017

"Chip always greets me with a smile after a friendly reminder call to tell me the estimates before doing work. He is nice to be able to call when I have a problem since he can always fix it or give good advice "

April 4th, 2017

"Paolo was wonderfully communicative and worked hard to make sure I would be happy with the service. My car had some extra issues reveal themselves during the maintenance and they were handled wonderfully! Wonderful car loan experience as well. Paolo was wonderfully communicative and really worked hard to make sure I knew exactly what was going on with my car, he included pictures for a particularly problem I was unaware of. I really trusted he had my best interest in mind. "

April 3,2017

"The service department's customer service is exceptional!!! Paolo Fiorenza is always very helpful and courteous. Mr. Fiorenza is very knowledgeable and patient. I live in Modesto, CA, which is about an hour and twenty minutes away from Walnut Creek. I drive the extra distance there because I feel confident that my vehicle will be taken care of thoroughly and professionally"


March 31st, 2017

"easy in/out with shuttle service; no one pushes products sales on you and can get the service you want and a clean car back to boot!Lower pricing to match local garages so I can afford to come EVERY time I need service--going to volvo is considered a reluctant "treat" rather than a need. "

March 30th, 2017

Paulo is wonderful, always a professional and kind! I always bring work, when I wait and Paulo always finds me an open office to work in! I really appreciate that!"

March 29th, 2017

"Alan is simply awesome. He is always very pleasant to deal with and incredibly helpful. He is very responsive and shows a genuine car for the car and for us. We would not consider servicing our Volvo elsewhere and will likely purchase a new one from the dealership as a result of your service department--they are, without exception, excellent. "

March 28th, 2017

"The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. We showed up late and had our very active two year old with us. The showroom has a quiet little space to play and plenty of cars for a rambunctious kiddo to play with/in. The car we were interested in was ready to go and the paperwork expedited to get us on our way as quickly as possible. Despite this and running a little later than planned, our daughter was still tucked into bed on time with a new to us Volvo tucked into the garage. Outstanding experience, much better than previous auto buying experiences. Most important, my wife loves the car. Bruce, Greg, and Ohmar, thank you "

March 27th, 2017
"Very customer minded. I was informed on a regular basis how the repairs were coming. I appreciated that. Paola did a wonderful job. Also thank you to the technicians that worked so hard to repair my car. You guys have got this right !! "

March 23rd, 2017

"Everyone was very friendly, punctual, and explained pricing and procedures perfectly. Paolo was by far the one of the best employees I've ever dealt with at a Volvo dealership, and I've visited most in the Bay Area for service. Will most likely be coming back to THIS Volvo dealership when purchasing our next car"

March 20th, 2017

"Alan Pierce is awesome. I have been going to him for years and will continue because he's: 1- honest 2- detail-oriented 3 - takes the time to explain in layman's terms what's going on with me car 4 - always goes the extra mile for me and makes me feel like a priority. He is your best employee, hands down. I truly value him and trust him.  I'm very happy with my service. "

March 17, 2017

"Everyone was very friendly, punctual, and explained pricing and procedures perfectly. Paolo was by far the best person I've ever dealt with at a Volvo dealership, and I've visited most in the Bay Area"

March 16th, 2017

"I have been a customer for over 14 years and have had outstanding service led by Alan Pierce. He is helpful, honest and accessible. When I recently needed to purchase a car, I was willing to pay more to continue the relationship with Alan and Volvo"
March 13th, 2017

"Mark and William helped me understand the cars features and did not pressure me at all. William assisted me with understanding how to operate the features. Both were pleasant to work with and appreciated my past support of the dealership" 

March 8th, 2017

" We were having trouble with our Volvo on the road, called your dealership and spoke to Alan, who advised us to come right in. The problem was identified, resolved, and within 24 hours we had our car back. We love how your dealership takes care of its customers, and how courteous, friendly and professional Alan was. We also greatly appreciated the rental car at no charge...THAT is great customer service and we very much appreciate it"

February 28th, 2017

"They took care of me. Quickly and efficiently .Keep doing what you're doing. I really liked and respected Lawrence Volvo. This was my first interaction with Volvo of Walnut Creek. I was happy to see the same quality of Customer Service and care that I received from my visits as before. All of my questions were answered and concerns taken care of beautifully. Thank you"

February 20th, 2017
"Everything. Service, communication, atmosphere, just how I was treated in general was awesome. Alan helped me out with a 10k service on my XC60. Best experience I could have hoped for"
- Liam

February 14th, 2017

"We took possession of our 2010 Volvo XC60 T6 mid 2009 and it only had 1,200 miles on it
because it was one of the first XC60s you had... and we purchased it on the spot. We could
not be happier with our purchase. In just six and a half years we are celebrating our 170,000
mile anniversary. I know it sounds crazy... 170,000 miles. While new cars come and go we
really want to extend our thanks to your service department and how you manage it.
You've spoiled us in a good way. I don't know of any other dealership that offers a loaner upon
making a service appointment after the vehicle is out of warranty. None. I've even looked at
other vehicles and the first thing I ask is how is your service department after the vehicle is out
of warranty, do you offer a loaner... NO, we don't do that they say. So, that alone is awesome.
Then your service advisors treat us so darn well and we always feel welcome. We've had
the pleasure of working with Alan, Mike, Paolo and two others, who's names escape me (my
apologies) and everyone, I mean everyone from reception to the guys who jockey the cars
are wonderful. Today is really special because we got our XC60 back after its 170K service and
man... it's driving like a new car again. Smooth... smooth as creamy nutella on a warm piece of
french bread. Who ever did the mechanical work, be it a single mechanic or a team of people...
the XC60 is purring. Please pass along our thanks to the mechanics behind the scenes.

Hi Alan, Clayton and Paul,
Thank you all for the service you provide.  You really know your stuff and go far beyond the norm to do the right thing for your customers.  Your expertise, kindness, understanding and helpfulness is recognized and truly appreciated.  It also gives one confidence in business-customer relationships and directly reflects your personal responsibleness and integrity.

And these words apply to William (Billy) as well.

February 2nd, 2017
 "I felt really taken care of there. I was given every information I didn't even know to ask and I walked away extremely pleased. My car is running beautifully! "

January 30th, 2017

"The service advisors are the dealership work with you to solve whatever the problem is. They make me feel like their most valued customer. Most importantly, I can trust them and "trust" is not a word used for much of the auto industry. It was a perfect experience. The service I get at the dealership is one of the reasons I keep buying Volvos. "

January 24th, 2017

"My Service Advisor for this visit was Mr. Paola Fiorenza who provided outstanding up to date communication about the details of my 40,000 mile service. I have always received outstanding service at this Walnut Creek facility. However, this visit was the kind that makes for an enjoyable day. Thanks for the great service. "

January 15th, 2017

"Pleasant staff, coffee while I waited, shuttle ride to bart, and a pick up from bart as well."

January 7th, 2017

"Very thorough and trustworthy service - my car is well taken care of. Very attentive and courteous staff - Paolo is the best! This dealership really cares about the customer"
