Passenger Vehicles Testimonials
“Dear Sydney City Volkswagon,
I want to thank you for a terrific experience. Your dealership is a credit to the car sales industry. I am a returning customer whose 19yr old daughter recently purchased her first new car VW Polo (DPP49H). Keith Borg made the vehicle selection and road testing very enjoyable so that she could make her own decision. We came back on 3 occasions. Financing the vehicle posed many obstacles young, newly employed, low income, James Ronfeldt smoothed everything out to fit her budget. Had he not been so sure footed we would certainly have walked away. The friendly staff and first-class service exceeded my expectations. We will certainly tell our friends about you, and look forward to purchasing another vehicle in the future. ”
“There is clearly a reason why I keep going back to Dennis at Sydney City Volkswagen. You may ask why? He knows and loves the cars and the brand better than anyone I know and believe me I've been to Wolfsburg, the home of Volkswagen, three times. He has built a trusting relationship with me and my family leading to the purchase of many vehicles from this dealership. Everyone across the board is friendly, polite and professional from sales, service, parts, finance and aftermarket. I warmly recommend Sydney City Volkswagen to anyone thinking about buying a VW in Sydney. ”
“I live in Darwin so buying a car in Sydney was not my intention when I walked into Sydney city VW. Dom was amazing in his description of the GTI 40th and all of a sudden I was in the manual screaming down foreshore drive and totally in love. Tara had a chat to me about my options and they're down to earth family style dynamics sold me long before I said yes. They're after sales service and willingness to go the extra mile for me has been exceptional and if u are in the market for a new/used car you're in good hands with these guys. Thanks very much to the team, although I will be calling u in six months to tell u that I have lost my licence but loved every minute of it!!!! ”
“Sydney City Volkswagen must be a great place to work. The atmosphere is charged with genuine camaraderie and team spirit. Everybody seems happy and relaxed in a most professional and welcoming way. From the very first phone call to the final handover, the quality of service was seamless. Not once did I feel pressured into buying, adding on or upgrading which in this day and age is very rare. Andrew Kapellas’ sincerity in his salesmanship was exceptional. He obviously loves his profession and knows his VW’s. We were treated with respect and honesty which added to the positive experience. Andrew is a true asset to Sydney City Volkswagen and I am sure recognised as a leading salesperson by the company. I would also like to mention Nicole, Amy and Tara who each in turn looked after me with the same open friendliness and competence. I now have beautiful new Silver Polo with all the bells and whistles all of which Andrew carefully explained. I couldn’t be happier with the whole process which made the tough choice of trading in a faithful 13 year old Lexus so much easier.
Thank you, Penny M ”
“I picked up the car and everything appeared to have been done very professionally and with care. I left thinking that I definitely want to continue getting the car serviced at Sydney City Volkswagen rather than my usual mechanic who I have been using for 20 years ”
“I particularly liked that my contact at Sydney City Volkswagen, Oliver Lum, was confidently and professionally in control of the entire handover process, which meant that I could focus on the excitement of getting a new car! He took the reigns, kept me closely abreast of all developments in the lead up to the delivery of the new car and he proactively walked me through every detail of the process before it took place so that I was clear on what was going to take place. I was very appreciative of the fact that Oliver went above and beyond to help me in transitioning from Melbourne to Sydney and the required processes that I needed to go through with Sydney Roads & Maritime Services, this was extremely helpful. I also loved that the car was rapped in a red ribbon and presented beautifully on the day of handover, and more than anything, I loved that Oliver was excited for me that I was getting a new car! This was a special experience for me and my 3 year old son and Oliver was wonderful in helping everything to go smoothly, exactly as per the agreed details of negotiation, and in a very happy manner. I couldnt recommend Olivers performance highly enough, he was brilliant. Furthermore, I loved that everybody at Sydney City Volkswagen were excited for me and were as excited as me in buying the new car! I was hugely appreciative that everything went according to plan and that I didnt need to worry about the details. Everything was handled by Oliver Lum in a professional and classy manner. Oliver was brilliant. ”
“I had a budget for a car. The account manager Tara Brumby was extremely helpful for us to meet our target budget. She explained the different loan options and answered every question we had with clear explanations. She was very responsive to my emails when I had questions after leaving the dealership. Also, Kevin He was very helpful when we asked questions about the car and wanted to test drive the car. He wasnt pushy but available to answer any questions we had. Kevin He, the person that I was dealing with went through the functions of the car. He was very helpful with questions. ”
“For me, the negotiation process should be a bit of fun and banter - both Kelvin sales person and John manager were great to deal with - a few laughs and banter as well as back & forth but not in a time wasting way as can be done by others to drag it out too much . They were both very friendly. Kelvin has been extremely attentive and helpful both before, during and after sale of my Golf. I liked the photo being sent and regular updates on the delivery process to know when I would get the car I was on a tight timeline before heading overseas . I bought my Tiguan from this dealership and would return in a heartbeat - having attempted to buy a VW from 2 other Sydney dealerships and experienced terrible service, the folks here are tops! : loved receiving a SMS with photo of the car ready to collect with red ribbon on it - cute! ”
“It was all so quick and simple! The car was not at the yard at the time so they arranged to have it delivered when I wanted it. Michael was so helpful, friendly and not pushy. Overall I am extremely satisfied with the service and experience I received at Sydney City Volkswagen. Michael and Emiliana were both so helpful and friendly. Michael went out of his way to ensure I had my car in only a couple of days, it was such a seamless and fun process!
“The personal interest shown by the salesman. He listened very carefully when I spoke and was very clear in his explanation and did not use jargon when talking to me about the features of the car. Car was immaculate in its presentation and my wife liked the ribbon and bow which was on the car. ”
“Pre sale information and test drive of the vehicle! Sale pitch that was relevant and informative. I went to another dealer and the sales pitch was solely based on wanting to sell a demonstration vehicle, a vehicle that I did not want to purchase! The deal was not really that great! Excellent Service, thank you Andrew and Oliver! Good presentation for pick up!
“Andrew is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I accidentally dropped my e-tag in the car park and he went the extra mile to ensure it was returned to me. Andrew took the time to ensure I was comfortable before leaving and I understood all the features.
“A truly wonderful experience in purchasing my new Golf from your extremely dedicated and passionate staff members. From my initial inquiry, to best pricing on m,y selected model, the various finance options available and final delivery. A HUGE Thank You to Michael Habib, Emiliana Ricciardi and Amy Campbell - you are a true asset to Volkswagen Group Australia. I will recommend you to everyone. Thanks again !!! ”
“Kelvin Tran was extremely helpful when we bought our new Touareg Element and I would highly recommend any of our friends to deal with him. He was extremely informative and assisted us in the orientation of the vehicle. He was also willing to assist us when calling him after the sale in answering our queries on the Touareg. Kelvin is very pleasant to deal with and his offer of always contacting him on when we need advice or booking the car in for servicing is helpful. ”
“I would just like to say that from the moment i touched base by phone with Lorelei ( Salesperson at Sydney City VW) till the end of me purchasing a new Golf for our daughter, Lorelei was not only pleasant to deal with but the most honest and caring Carsales person i have met and believe me i have had many cars in my time! Thank you for being so Honest , Hardworking and most of all going that extra step to make me feel welcome!! I really felt like part of the family! See you soon Paul T ”
“I recently purchased my new car from Lorelei, the process was seamless and professional. From the initial contact I made with Lorelei to the delivery of the car everything just ran smoothly including the delivery date Lorelei predicted 1 month prior. I would recommend Lorelei to friends and family looking to purchase a VW in the future. Thanks again A+ ”
“We went in search of a good deal and this was achieved through Sydney City VW. Grateful thanks to Lorelei, Amy and Tara for their outstanding customer service. We felt very well supported throughout the process of buying our Tiguan. This is our second purchase from the dealership and we would certainly recommend Sydney City VW to others. ”
“Sam and the team at Sydney City VW were a pleasure to deal with. Sam would have to be the most professional car salesman I've ever dealt with. He was clear, knowledgable and very easy to talk with. He made an effort to relate to me and my family in a very genuine way and made the experience very personal which is hard to find these days. Sam also went the extra mile to resolve a last minute issue which was completely outside of his or the dealerships control. Thanks to Sam and the team for a great buying experience! ”
“Absolutely the best experience with this dealership. Kelvin was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. A Very friendly atmosphere. Tara was a pleasure to deal with suggesting options with our finance. Thanks so much guys we absolutely love our Golf R ”

Courtney provided needed assistance with our finances. After just one month we went there to buy our second car. They again provided the best service, they provided us with all information, support. We traveled from Artarmon to Botany but we never regretted...It was a very pleasant shopping experience for our family. Thanks ”
“Kelvin Tran took the stress out of buying a new vehicle and I would highly recommend any friends or colleagues to deal with him as well. Extremely informative without being pushy or intrusive at all. Marian in finance was also fantastic to deal with. It was a real pleasure to deal with both Kelvin & Marian.
“I recently purchased a new VW Polo. Andrew Kappellas was our Sales Person. I found his service to be warm, friendly and informative. Considering the fact that it was for my daughter and being her first car he made her feel very special. The overall buying experience from our initial visit to the Dealership to the eventual delivery was 10/10! Andrew is a credit to your organisation.
“I was very impressed with the team at Sydney City VW. I walked in a few weeks ago with the intention of looking at a Tiguan and walked out having purchased a Golf Alltrack. A great decision and many thanks to Lorelei Dela Rosa for making it such a smooth process! ”
“I recently purchased a VW Golf for my daughter and I couldn't be more happier with the gentlemen who served us named Kelvin Tran. He was extremely helpful, took very good care of us and provided us with all that we needed. The service couldn't have been any better and we thank him for all that he has done. ”
“I purchased a Tiguan 155 TSI from Lorelei Dela Rosa of Sydney City Volkswagen in January. I was going to purchase a 118 Tiguan but lorelei convinced me that the 155 was better value. I have been driving the car for 3 weeks and have been delighted with the way it drives and so pleased I listened to her advice. ”
“I liked that the saleswoman was so friendly ,professional ,and did not pressure me, and listen to what I wanted.id been to 2 other dealers and they did not look interested in what I wanted and the whole staff made me feel so welcomed ..so thanks to your staff and especially to lorelei dela rosa who took care of me. ”

“This is the second car we have purchased from Lorelei Dela Rosa as we find her to be extremely courteous, professional and knowledgeable about VW cars. We will certainly go back to Lorelei if buying another VW.
“Direct and honest answers from Kelvin which was lacking at a previous dealership I had dealings with. I liked the fact that Kelvin had authority regarding pricing and what he was able to do. ”

“Lorelei sold us our car 6 years ago and we asked for her to help us buy this car. She is very professional and friendly and knows her products. I look forward to her assistance next time We purchase from Sydney City Volkswagen ”
“The moment I walked into the dealership, I had to take a second take as we were not tackled to the floor. I come from a sales and service background and note that there has always been a stigma out there about the car salesman who is extremely pushy and desperate to sell. - When I met Andrew Kappellas our saleperson , I knew that I came to the right place. Not only does he know his product, but he also knows his customer. He did not sell anything to me but provided me with the right option to suit my needs. Had he not taken the care to listen to what his customer wanted, then I would not have bought my Golf from there. - I loved the fact that where ever it is that I looked, there was always a smile waiting. They are an amazing team fill of passion for not only VW but servicing the customer. I knew I wanted to buy a Golf, but never expected that I would buy it from the first dealer I went to see. I owe it all to Andrew and his team. ”
