I just purchased my new to me Volvo S60 a week ago. I dealt with Salma Abdrllatif and could not be more pleased! The experience with her and Carling Volvo was fantastic. Salma walked me through the process, answered all of my questions and promptly answered my emails and text messages. She provided me with a thorough tour of the car upon delivery, explaining everything. She ensured I was connected to the Volvo app on my phone and that it was all working before I left. Not once did I feel rushed throughout this whole process! If you are considering ...

I personally would recommend Volvo at Carling Motors, however I strongly agree that Ottawa requires another dealership to keep up with the amount of Volvo s in the area. Hopefully higher management will redirect the need for another dealership or increase the work bays to allow more availability for maintaining the vehicles in the area.

I am a recent client of Volvo Carling Motors Co. Limited and I must share the very positive experience during the process of purchasing an XC60 2020 vehicle. I met Mr. Miles Yu, salesperson, a very patient young man who answered my many questions over a two week period. Finally on the day of the purchase of my automobile, he explained how all the different options that were included with the car. Excellent service. I was introduced to Mackenzie, who again assisted me with questions that I had concerning my purchase of a warranty when Miles was absent. On the day ...

When we picked up the car several days later, Martin Bourgeois, the Technician, had addressed all outstanding issues, plus the car had been immaculately detailed. It was honestly like new. The personable General Manager, Roger Howell, steered the ship through the whole process, as only an ex-Newfoundlander could.

Just had a great buying experience with Carling Motors. Late on a Sunday afternoon after car shopping all day we spotted what looked like a fantastic offer on their website. Sent a email and promptly received a response from Brandon Anderson, raced down, test drove, and were convinced it was the right car for us. Brandon expertly helped us through the buying cycles and efficiently managed our many requests. Within 24 hours we'd purchased the car we were looking for!

I had a fantastic experience purchasing a XC90. My lease recently expired for a BMW 330e and I was in the market for a premium SUV. The staff at the Carling Volvo dealership were friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. After test driving the XC90, I was set on getting it. Roger, the GM, made the entire purchasing process seamless. A nice personal touch I would like to highlight is Roger picking me up from the BMW dealership and driving me to the Volvo one and handing me the keys himself - customer service like that is rare these days! 5/5.
