our experience buying a car

We gave a good rating because the salesman and the financial business was great. The service department we weren't impressed with. We had to return the next day because they needed to get the license plate off the old car to put on the new car, because we bought the car on Memorial Day and the service department wasn't working, we also needed to have the windshield wipers replaced on drivers side because it was raining and leaving streaks making it hard to see. This took a couple of hours and then as my husband was driving home the replaced windshield wiper blew off in the middle of the pouring rain and he had to turn around and go back and almost got in an accident because he couldn't see well. They didn't have anymore replacement windshield wipers so they put the old one on and we ended up having to go buy a new one ourselves. Just felt like the service department was very slow and not careful.

2019 VW Passat

I recently got my second leased car from Lithia VW. I have had great routine maintenance with no trouble getting in and out and Lithia offers loaners if you cannot wait! No one does that anymore. The cars themselves are great and they will make anything and everything right if you feel there is something that should be better. Unless you at least go and talk to them (I recommend Lamont Johnson) you will never know what you are missing.

Used Tiguan Purchase

I gave the team at Lithia Volkswagen of Des Moines 5/5 stars because they worked with us to find the perfect vehicle for our needs that fit well within our budget. We started out with Trey doing test drives and some vehicle walk arounds, then moved on to working with Lamont and Caleb on price. They were very upfront during the negotiation process and made everything feel very fun and relaxed. We did not feel pressured at all. Overall I would highly recommend purchasing a car from this dealer as it was a great experience and left me feeling very satisfied!

Great people that sell quality cars

We worked with Lamont and he went out of his way to find us a car that we loved. And when we found that perfect car but it was a bit out of our price range, he worked with Dwayne (business manager) and Caleb (sales manager) to get it to a more comfortable price for us. They even got the stores general manager Scott involved there for a bit to ensure they had done everything they could for us. Truly an above and beyond experience. Only negative was that it was a very loooooong process. We have bought and negotiated many used cars in the past and this was by far the slowest dealership we have been to. It took almost 6 hours total spread over 2 days to test drive just one car, haggle pricing and finalize the deal. So I definitely recommend this place to everyone, but you will need to plan PLENTY of time to do anything here :)

Poor service as usual

Lithia has continuously provided us with poor service no matter the sales rep. We knew what car we wanted before we entered the dealership. Three days later we got the car at 5 pm in a snowstorm. We had to wait around for hours to see the finance person and the battery was dead in the car so the test drive was delayed. This is the only VW dealer in town so we are stuck if we want a VW.

Best used car buying experience ever!!!!

Looked at this car online the night before. Called the next morning and talked to Lamont to see what we could do to hold this car till I could get there to look at it and drive it. He took care of that and I was able to come in that evening for the look and test drive. Lamont was an excellent salesman. Very easy to deal with, not pressuring or pushing the sale. Definitely knew his automobiles. Mostly concerned of what I thought about the vehicle and test drive. Also took the time to learn a little bit about me and my family and what the vehicle would be used for. Would definitely buy a new or used car from him again. Dwayne was also great to work with in financing/paperwork end of the sale. Lithia is probably happy to have both of these men!!!!!!!!!!

Great Experience

Lamont was great to work with. I came in to test drive a GTI to make sure I would be ok with the purchase we had planned for my husband. He answered all my questions and shared a lot of the features that I wasn't aware of in the car. Lamont and Gerry were able to get us a deal that worked. There was a bit of a wait after we decided to purchase, as the dealership was busy that Saturday, but Dwayne made the paperwork go fast. Everyone was really helpful and tried to make it up to us for having to wait.

Positive Experience

We decided to visit Volkswagen, as an afterthought, on our way to purchase a Kia down the road. We were immediately assisted by Trey and Lamont, who promptly showed us the two options that fit our criteria, a Tiguan and an Atlas. They were both very knowledgable about the vehicle specs and features. We ultimately decided on a Tiguan. The manager Scott was very helpful in clarifying the purchase process and pricing. Financing was smooth with Dwayne. Upon returning to the dealership for a minor issue (glue residue), Randall was willing and able to assist us promptly in Lamont's absence. I would highly recommend Randall, Lamont, or Trey to help you find the perfect vehicle that works for your family and budget.

Great car buying experience

This dealership is great. From the moment i walked in to buy my 2015 GTI, Lamont Johnson, the salesman I worked with, made me feel welcome. I told him which car I was interested in and he took me straight to it and we went for a test drive. Lamont let the test drive go for much longer than any other I had ever been on, which I greatly appreciated. Lamont showed me every feature on the car in detail. When we got back to the building I knew I wanted the car, but I wanted to get my fiance's approval first. She was at work and it was a busy day so it took me awhile to get a hold of her. Lamont patiently waited and didn't go to any other customers while we were waiting, he even made me a sandwich!! My fiance wanted to talk in person about getting the car, but she didn't get off till five, so at 4, Lamont and the management let me take the car home to Ames so I could show it to my fiance. She didn't actually get off till 6 and Lamont said not to rush the car back, instead, they let me use it for the weekend!! When me and my fiance came back on Monday morning, we both wanted the car but she had to get to work at 11, Thomas Clyce got our paperwork done quickly so she could get to work on time, he also got us a great rate! When I left the dealership they filled my tank full tank of gas. This was a great experience and I will definitely deal with Lithia and Lamont again!! Would for sure recommend to a friend!

I came into Lithia VW as a customer needing service on a vehicle i purchased elsewhere. While waiting i met Mr Lamont Johnson. Lamont and his colleagues made my experience buying a new car as smooth and simple as possible. I went in for an oil change and was able to leave in a car i absolutely love. With an interest rate a third of what i was paying. And a warranty that takes care of any worries. The best part of my experience was the people that represented your company. They went above and beyond and treated me not as another sale but as a friend. Thank you.

Everyone we dealt with, from our initial salesman Andrew Ruiz to Lashon Jennings and Dwayne Hill, were first rate.

I was looking for a specific Final Edition Beetle. 2 local dealerships were not successful in finding the car I wanted. I did a Google search and found my car on their website. I called and was connected with Brian Braak. I live 2 states away, so everything was done by phone , text and email. Brian made everything so easy. Financing was secured without any difficulty. This process started on a Monday. I drove to Des Moines from Indiana on Saturday and picked up my car. Everything was in order when we got there. Features of the car were explained. Paperwork signed and we were on our way back to Indiana. I just wished I lived closer to Lithia VW to use their service department!

Best used car buying experience ever!!!!

Looked at this car online the night before. Called the next morning and talked to Lamont to see what we could do to hold this car till I could get there to look at it and drive it. He took care of that and I was able to come in that evening for the look and test drive. Lamont was an excellent salesman. Very easy to deal with, not pressuring or pushing the sale. Definitely knew his automobiles. Mostly concerned of what I thought about the vehicle and test drive. Also took the time to learn a little bit about me and my family and what the vehicle would be used for. Would definitely buy a new or used car from him again. Dwayne was also great to work with in financing/paperwork end of the sale. Lithia is probably happy to have both of these men!!!!!!!!!!

Great Experience

Lamont was great to work with. I came in to test drive a GTI to make sure I would be ok with the purchase we had planned for my husband. He answered all my questions and shared a lot of the features that I wasn't aware of in the car. Lamont and Gerry were able to get us a deal that worked. There was a bit of a wait after we decided to purchase, as the dealership was busy that Saturday, but Dwayne made the paperwork go fast. Everyone was really helpful and tried to make it up to us for having to wait.

I had a great experience at Lithia Volkswagen.

Over the weekend I bought a VW GTI at Lithia Volkswagen and worked with Lamont Johnson. Overall, this was the best car buying experience I have had in my life. Lamont went above and beyond in every facet in educating and assisting me in the process. Dwayne, in financing, also went above and beyond to simplify the process. Together, they gave me a great deal for a great car. I am very happy with my experience.

Lithia Volkswagon of Des Moines

I would have to express the service that they offered me was exceptional, but I would have to disagree on the paper work end of it, i felt that i was rushed through a lot of things and alls they wanted was the sale. Some request I had were planned, for example full tank of gas, and 300 dollars knocked of my car payment, once the paper work was ran up none of these two planned ideas, instead they put the paper work back to the same listing amount and still sold me the car for asking price.

Vehicle Purchase at Lithia

Ok experience. Caleb is a great salesman to work with. Very friendly. Sales manager Dwayne was ok. I felt extremely rushed filling out my paperwork for the purchase. It was past closing time so I understand, but that wasn’t my fault. The customers in front of me took forever. Wish I would have gotten more for my trade in , but that kind of stuff is common. Multiple inquiries into my credit occurred though, which I get was unnecessary. That negatively effected my credit score. Very nice dealership inside though with decent amenities. Overall decent experience with the exceptions of the rushed paperwork and credit inquiries.

Great experience

I knew that I wanted to buy a year old, low miles Atlas so I emailed about one they had and Georan responded right away to confirm availability. We were greeted by Trey when we came to test drive the vehicle. He was knowledgeable and helpful. Even when I wasn't sure it was the exact interior and exterior color I wanted, they said that they would work with me to locate exactly what I wanted. We decided to go ahead with purchasing the one they had in stock and worked with Trey. I was really impressed with him - he's honest, hardworking and even helped move my car seats in freezing weather. Dwayne helped me with all of the paperwork and financing. He was a joy and I probably could have spent all day chatting with them both. Not something you often say about negotiating a car purchase! Most importantly, I was impressed with how they treated me as a woman. They didn't defer to my husband during discussions about features or pricing. It was a great experience and I definitely recommend them both.

I worked with Caleb to buy my 2013 Nissan Rogue. Great experience beginning to end! Initially reached out with interest in the car I found on their website. I came in that day for a test drive, they weren’t too pushy and answered all of my questions. Got a great value on my trade in, and with a little negotiating I got the car at the price I was hoping for! Had a tire pressure warning light pop on after driving it off the lot, and Caleb got me in the next day to take a look at it (no issues with the vehicle). Would recommend working with this dealership for sure!

The Sale was Great. Service after the sale was bad.

The salesperson Trey was outstanding and there were no issues with the sale of the used car. There was a VERY minor (but safety-related) repair issue so they were going to hold the car for a day or two until they had the 5-10 minutes to fix it. A few days turned into a week and communication was terrible. I called to ask if the tech could simply check the check engine light code while he was doing the other fix (something any autozone will do for free) and he refused, telling me I'd have to ask a salesman to ask him to do it. I was also told multiple times that I'd be called back and I was not. Also, they could not tell me the VIN of my new car when I asked for it for my insurance company. Finally, they told me to come in and pick up the title but when I called, I was sent to the Acura business office, where they told me the title would be sent to the county. The ridiculous disconnect between sales and service really ruins the otherwise good purchase experience. Two wings that should work together to maximize sales and sales after the service actually hate each other, and the customer gets caught in the middle. And I still don't have my car!

Flawless Experience - I didn’t make it easy

Had a phenomenal experience with Caleb. Did my research and comparative shopping before I came in, so I had plenty of questions and hurdles for Caleb to jump through. Test drive was very relaxed, negotiations were done with respect, and timelines were met. My car was ordered from Missouri initially, until the deal fell through between dealerships. Caleb was able to secure the car I ended up purchasing from Indiana, where it was shipped to Lithia, only one day later than I had initially planned for the first car. As a car guy who has tried a slew of manufacturers and dealerships, new and used, I have to say my experience with Caleb and Lithia was right at the top. I’d definitely recommend!

I went in not knowing what to expect. Im a Maryland transplant and normally my Dad would assist me with buying a new vehicle. Randy joked I could pretend he was my dad and he would guide me as best he could. He worked closely with me and listened to what I wanted. In the end I left with a new car. He has assisted me with the after sale services I purchased and made it all seamless. Dwayne was fun and nice to work with through the financial aspect and paper work.

Positive Experience

We decided to visit Volkswagen, as an afterthought, on our way to purchase a Kia down the road. We were immediately assisted by Trey and Lamont, who promptly showed us the two options that fit our criteria, a Tiguan and an Atlas. They were both very knowledgable about the vehicle specs and features. We ultimately decided on a Tiguan. The manager Scott was very helpful in clarifying the purchase process and pricing. Financing was smooth with Dwayne. Upon returning to the dealership for a minor issue (glue residue), Randall was willing and able to assist us promptly in Lamont's absence. I would highly recommend Randall, Lamont, or Trey to help you find the perfect vehicle that works for your family and budget.

Tanked my Credit Score

The car buying experience was good excluding the financial side. The only complaint that I have is that the financial department ran at least seven (7), yes seven, separate loan hard inquiries for my credit. That dropped my overall credit scores from 84 to 103 points depending on the bureau. I have seen this complaint submitted in reviews for Lithia in the past. If you come to Lithia be sure to ask who and how they are submitting loan requests!

AWESOMENESS!!! Thank You Dwayne and Chris

Dwayne was and has been just AWESOME in helping me get into a good vehicle. Chris was instrumental in this great success, as well. I know salespersons jobs are to "get it sold", but I believe they worked hard to make it happen when they could have given up and moved on to someone who required less work. They were both very professional, were quite personable and were great at helping me to feel assured that they were on their jobs and knew how to get things done - and they got things done. Because of my AWESOME experience at Lithia has inspired me to bring my family and friends who are in the market for a car so they have an opportunity to enjoy kind of car buying I experienced at Lithia. I have a couple of items on the which need repair, attention or explaining. I will be taking my vehicle in to have those corrected and I am counting on Service to continue in this wonderful car buying experience. ?? Kimberley Myles Happy Routan Owner

Worst and most expensive service I've experienced

I bought a used VW Golf from this dealership in August and I've had nothing but problems with it and I have had to put in over $2000 worth of necessary repairs. Every time something goes wrong, even though it is obvious...there is a $140/hr diagnosis charge which has never taken less than 2 hours. The shuttle hours are much less than the average 8 hour work day and my car has never been done in less than 3 days. During my last oil change they came up with over $1500 worth of needed repairs and marked them as URGENT. A second opinion said these were unnecessary for at least another 30,000 miles.

Trey helped me find a new sportwagen. This is my first car and I was really uneasy going in. Trey made me feel extremely comfortable and like he wasn’t trying to trick me. I would definitely recommend coming to shop for a car with Trey.

Amazing Experience!!

Trey was extremely patient and eager in helping me select a vehicle. I’m very picky but he never let up his positive, can-do attitude. He worked with other members to ensure I got the price that fit my budget and was extremely informational the entire time. Absolutely amazing customer service and I never felt like I was buying a car because everything was so seamless, easy, and fun. I HIGHLY recommend Trey and will be sending all of my friends and family his way for future purchases.

First Lease

This was my very first time getting a lease. When I walked in, Trey greeted me right away and got to know me and what I was looking for. He showed me 2 different trims of the 2019 Jetta and helped me figure out the finance plan for me. They really worked hard to get me the exact car I wanted!

Friendly atmosphere.

At most dealerships the sales persons main objective is shoving you into a car and treating you like you're just a paycheck. Here at Volkswagen they are extremely friendly, flexible, and work to your needs. They treat you like a real person. Trey is super awesome hes friendly and helpful. I told him what I wanted was unachievable by any means and honestly I doubted everything he told me. He's a man of his word and made sure what I needed got done for me.

Horrible customer service

My car got “forgotten about” to get fixed. Took over 2 weeks to send my car BACK to get paint touch up AGAIN because it was done awful the first time and the paint didn’t match the rest of my car. I had to physically go in to tell them it was taking too long and came to them telling me my car getting fixed got lost in the shuffle. Awful customer service.

Great experience!

I worked with Trey Burkhall to purchase a new Tiguan, and it was a great car buying experience. I had to make much of the deal remotely via phone and email, and Trey was flexible in working around my schedule and when I was in town. He was knowledgeable about the vehicle I purchased, and had the options all set up for me before I was even done signing the paperwork. Great experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Trey or recommend him to friends and family.

Diagnosis

I was asked permission for a couple of hours of diagnostic I get charged over $400 for the diagnosis alone after I was told its $125 an hour and for a COUPLE of hours that adds up to $250 for the diagnosis not over$400 had I known that I would have not got a diagnostics test because that is an absurd price on top of having to pay over $5000 just to get it fixed it was a very terrible experience

Excellent Experience!

I had a great experience working with Trey. I went to the dealership looking to buy an Atlas. Trey as polite, understanding, and he did his part to work with me in order to come to an agreeable deal. Trey was understanding of my needs, he listened to my requests and was excellent in his replies. Car buying is always a little difficult, but Trey did everything to make this deal enjoyable. I would recommend reaching out to Trey if you're looking for a VW.

Enjoyable Car Buying Experience

The salesman we worked with, Trey, was very friendly and personable during our car buying process! He took the time to show us different versions of the 2019 Tiguan to ensure we purchased the car that fit our needs! He also took the time to make sure all of our questions were answered. I would return to this Volkswagen in the future!

Lithia Volkswagon of Des Moines

I would have to express the service that they offered me was exceptional, but I would have to disagree on the paper work end of it, i felt that i was rushed through a lot of things and alls they wanted was the sale. Some request I had were planned, for example full tank of gas, and 300 dollars knocked of my car payment, once the paper work was ran up none of these two planned ideas, instead they put the paper work back to the same listing amount and still sold me the car for asking price.

Terrible customer service

First off we love the Passat but the customer service is terrible! When we test drove the car the gas light came on ( no biggie ) we ended up buying the car and it was late by the time we got all of the paperwork done. Thank goodness there is a gas station across the street! No gas in the Passat when we drove off the lot. Before we drove off I noticed there were no floor mats. Trey said he would order them. After several texts and call to Trey we finally got them. Along with not having floor mats the first aid kit was missing also. I know this seems petty but I paid for it it was on the sticker of the car. I have talked to Trey, Brandon, Scott, and the finance guy several times. I have been told everything from we will have to order it to it’s in the parts department to we will just take one from another car to the manager is taking care of it. It is know December 11th and I have yet to see or here from anyone. I guess even though I have paid for the first aid kit I just figured im not going to receive it. The next thing is we have had to redo the paperwork 4 time now. What’s irritating is all of the trips back to the dealership we have made due to the poor communication and what seems like the lack of knowledge of all of the papers we signed. If l could change the first review I definitely would. Like I said at the beginning we love the Passat but this whole car buying experience at VW of Des Moines was not a good one! I would recommend buying a VW but not from this dealership. Thanks Jeff

Great experience

I knew that I wanted to buy a year old, low miles Atlas so I emailed about one they had and Georan responded right away to confirm availability. We were greeted by Trey when we came to test drive the vehicle. He was knowledgeable and helpful. Even when I wasn't sure it was the exact interior and exterior color I wanted, they said that they would work with me to locate exactly what I wanted. We decided to go ahead with purchasing the one they had in stock and worked with Trey. I was really impressed with him - he's honest, hardworking and even helped move my car seats in freezing weather. Dwayne helped me with all of the paperwork and financing. He was a joy and I probably could have spent all day chatting with them both. Not something you often say about negotiating a car purchase! Most importantly, I was impressed with how they treated me as a woman. They didn't defer to my husband during discussions about features or pricing. It was a great experience and I definitely recommend them both.

The Sale was Great. Service after the sale was bad.

The salesperson Trey was outstanding and there were no issues with the sale of the used car. There was a VERY minor (but safety-related) repair issue so they were going to hold the car for a day or two until they had the 5-10 minutes to fix it. A few days turned into a week and communication was terrible. I called to ask if the tech could simply check the check engine light code while he was doing the other fix (something any autozone will do for free) and he refused, telling me I'd have to ask a salesman to ask him to do it. I was also told multiple times that I'd be called back and I was not. Also, they could not tell me the VIN of my new car when I asked for it for my insurance company. Finally, they told me to come in and pick up the title but when I called, I was sent to the Acura business office, where they told me the title would be sent to the county. The ridiculous disconnect between sales and service really ruins the otherwise good purchase experience. Two wings that should work together to maximize sales and sales after the service actually hate each other, and the customer gets caught in the middle. And I still don't have my car!

I really enjoyed working with Trey. He took his time with me and allowed me to test drive as many cars as needed to make my decision. I was a bit frustrated by the financing part. I think next time I will secure my own financing before going shopping.

I grew up in the small town of Perry, IA until I moved to Johnston to attend highschool where I graduated. At 21, I moved out to Humboldt California where I spent the last 10 years and started working for Lithia. I wanted to move home so I transferred Lithia stores and now I am working here! I am excited to be home and selling Volkswagen. In my spare time I like to go disc golfing with my dog and friends, I like cooking good food, and I like to go see live music anytime I can. Those are all big reasons I am glad to be home because Des Moines has tons of opportunity to do all of those things. I really like selling Volkswagen cars because I not only get to meet and get to know a lot of different great people, but I also get to find them the car that fits their lifestyle and needs perfectly. All these things make me very happy to be back home! Cheers!

The service center at Lithia is disorganized and very slow. Drive to Minneapolis or Omaha for a new Volkswagen. You'll be disappointed in Des Moines.

purchasing a VW Golf

Dane Larsen was an excellent salesperson who coordinated my trade- in and purchase of a 2018 Golf. He handled the shipping of the vehicle, and made sure all paperwork was expedited to my address in Texas. We picked up the Golf in Bryan,TX without any problems or headaches. He made this transaction seem quite effortless on our part. He is an asset to your team.
