    As a Service Advisor, I really enjoy providing excellent customer service. I walk in every day and say, ?It?s a Happy Day!? I love the performance and style of VWs. My hobbies away from work are gardening, family time, camping and boating, and competitive darts (2nd in state).

    I like the quality of VW and the people here are amazing to work with. My family drove a 1964 1/2 Beetle and I own a 1987 Jetta. On my time off I like working on cars. On the weekend I host a Bible study. I love the Lord Jesus Christ and obey all his commandments! Loving the Lord and loving people is a passion that I can live out in my life, both here at work and at home. Thank you!

    I joined the team here at AVW, because they are just that. A team! I enjoy the atmosphere here and the quality of VW. I grew up in Federal Way attending high school and college in the area. Although I don’t own a VW I like to work with them and provide great customer service to their owners. I strive for excellence and guarantee any task will be done to the best of my ability.

    I moved to Washington State from Southern California and this is my 33rd year working at Auburn VW. I love that I go to work with friends I have known for years! I work in the Service Department as a Master Certified Warranty Administrator. My first car was a used 1964 Bug. That Beetle was so much fun to drive and new model Beetles are even more fun! I spend my off-work time in my garden, going for walks, reading, knitting or visiting with family. When I can, I love to travel.

    I grew up in North East Tacoma, graduated from Stadium High School and now attend UW Tacoma studying Arts Media & Culture. My first car was a 2000 Passat that my younger brother now drives! My dream VW is an MK1 Rabbit. VWs are fun to drive and just look good. I love the culture diversity that the VW scene offers. Auburn VW?s passion for VW and for the Auburn community shows in our involvement with Pacific Northwest car shows, get-togethers and charitable events. We have a lot of fun here!

    I like everything about Volkswagens, I think they are a quality product at any price. What I appreciate most about being an employee at Auburn Volkswagen is the leadership and integrity from the owner and all the employees. I believe we live up to our core values and that there is a true interest and concern for every employee and customer. I am an Army retiree with 20 years of service and 3 combat tours. I am passionate about very few things, the top three being my God, my family, and my country.

    My first job was at a VW dealership, which is when I fell in love with the VW Brand. Auburn VW is a great place to work, with great people to work with. I always try and give the best customer experience that I can, along with a smile! My 2014 Jetta is my 5th VW. I love the way they drive! My other passion is golf. I also play softball and I wrestled competitively in high school. I am not fluent in ASL (American Sign Language), but I sign well enough to have a conversation.

    VWs are a part of who I am. My entire family has been VW enthusiasts since the 1950s. We all drive VWs! I am so blessed to work for such a wonderful company that cares so much about our community and our team members. This is really like my second family. I love everyone here. When not at work I spend time with my first family; my wife, my son and our dogs Samson and Stella or working in the yard, on our home or on my 1992 Corrado V126.

    I grew up in Kent and have worked for VW for 25 years, including other VW Dealerships. The best part of working at Auburn VW is the people. We are like family. We work through our challenges and work out our differences. At the end of the day there is no other group of people that I would rather work with. The first car I ever bought with my own money was a VW; an old, loud diesel. As a VW enthusiast, I like the uniqueness and quirkiness of the early VWs and their all around fun-to-drive feeling. I now own a 1982 Rabbit Pickup, a 2000 Jetta and a 2008 Jetta. When it is time to relax, my wife and I enjoy being able to go fishing and camping in the Pacific Northwest.

The main reason I like my job is because of the awesome people here at Auburn VW. I like that we can get our jobs done efficiently and still have fun. I have a cat named Grissom and my wife and I like to try out new restaurants together.

    Altogether I’ve been with VW for 15 years, originally starting out washing cars. My older brother had an ?86 Jetta Wolfsburg which got me hooked on Volkswagens in the first place. I’ve always been impressed by the build quality, the style, character, and culture of VWs. You could say I bleed blue. Working for Auburn VW is a great experience because our core purpose is to exceed expectations. I like golfing, traveling, keeping up on the Sounders FC, and more importantly spending time with my lovely wife and our little daughter.

    Auburn VW is a team of genuine people where I have had opportunity to improve and advance to better serve our VW customers. My car is a 2008 Red Wolfsburg Jetta. The looks, interior, quality of parts and dependability of the VW cars are all reasons why I am happy to be a small part of the legacy that VW has proven to be. I was born and went to school in this area. I am married (no children yet) with 2 dogs, 3 cats and 2 beta fish. My hobbies are kickboxing, weight training, reading and watching Star Trek. I have a Bachelor?s Degree in education. I am a licensed minister and pastor a college-aged group and teach Sunday school.

    I’ve always loved VW bugs, probably because of Herbie the love bug. I have about a dozen Volkswagens including 2 stock bugs, 2 Herbie bugs, 3 rally bugs, 2 buses, and a drag car, all in slot cars or models that is! I like WWE wrestling and racing, both live and on TV. I have a slot car and model collection and race slot cars almost every week. I’ve even been on TV before for my racing! Customers should know that I do have a speech problem and it can be very hard for me to communicate at times. I love to open doors and give handshakes though!

    I am a father of four children and a grandfather of one amazing granddaughter. I love Volkswagen and have owned 5 of them. What I love about VW is that their cars have a personality, unlike other cars I have driven. Their refined interiors, amazing handling, and engine performance makes them stand out from all other cars in their class, plus they are just so much fun to drive. I am proud to be a part of Auburn Volkswagen because we are changing the way cars are sold. Buying a new car is exciting and I want to make the experience fun and have all my customers leave completely satisfied.

    When I first came to Auburn VW I started as a Lube Tech and have worked in the Parts and Service departments before joining the Internet Sales Department. My first car was a 1997 Jetta and I have owned only VWs ever since. I love driving my 2013 Jetta TDI. My husband Chris drives a 2005 GLI and we have two VW Corrados that we are restoring. My husband Chris? He?s a Service Technician for VW. We are an enthusiastic and loyal VW family! We also enjoy spending family time with our daughter and with Zoey (cat), Star (Arabian horse) and Yellow and Happy (two of our brood of eight egg-laying hens). We hang out with friends, watch movies, garden and home brew wine and beer. Auburn VW is a great place to work. I like the stress-free environment, the friendliness of everyone I work with and the Auburn community involvement. There is a genuine compassion for others here, and I like being a part of that.

    I’ve always had an affinity for Volkswagen. I had a ’67 Microbus in high school and it seems like our family always had a few around the house. Currently I own a 2014 Passat. The reason I prefer Volkswagen is because they are stylish, affordable, and reliable. I look forward to going to work every day because Auburn VW has great ownership, outstanding employees, and customers who love the brand.

    We are very enthusiastic about VW, our community and our customers here. My wife and I are both VW drivers. We love the great mileage, fit and finish, safety and handling of our 2013 Passat and 2013 CC R-line. I grew up in Puyallup, with my parents owning a VW bus and VW Quantum. They now have a 2008 Passat and a 1985 Vanagon. I enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, golfing, relaxing or spending time with my wife and our adopted 3 year old Chiweenie dog and our large family (23 nieces and nephews).
