    In 2006 I was blessed with the opportunity to acquire this wonderful organization from a great man, Roger Vermazen. At Auburn VW we value our Team members 1st so that they can value our guests, and bless our community. Our Team is always looking for ways to innovate in order to achieve our core purpose of becoming the premier VW dealership in the Northwest and the Entire nation by blessing our Guests and Community. We have been recognized nationally from 2012-2014 in numerous articles by Automotive News and Auto Dealer monthly, as well as Cobalt and Volkswagen of America in regards to our engagement in digital and video marketing strategies. I love being a part of the community and am currently serving on the Board of Directors for Washington State Auto Dealers, Vadis, and Life Christian Academy. We are also involved with leaders of today and tomorrow through Washington Student Leadership and are ambassadors for the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth to love one another worldwide. My amazing bride Amy (our Director of Community Outreach) and I, along with our three beautiful children, live and serve in the Tacoma area and at Life Center.

    I drive a 2013 Passat TDI and it is most exciting to me when I set the cruise control at 60 mph and the fuel consumption rises to 60 mpg! I appreciate working for Auburn VW because it allows its employees to be individuals within the context of its goals for success and core purpose. I consider myself a servant of the people, so please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, I am here and happy to help!

    I believe Volkswagen today offers the best value package of Quality, Safety, Performance, and Style available in the market.  I’ve always been impressed by the way a Volkswagen feels on the open road.  I’ve owned 16 of them now, but driven all of them in every road and weather condition you can imagine,  so you could say I bleed VW blue.  My wife and I have 2 Amazing children and we feel safe in our VW’s with the family.     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 amazing kids.

    Our team at Auburn Volkswagen is trained to be the best you will meet in your service or car shopping experience.  We meet many people who have had a sour experience somewhere else, and we love turning that into a positive one.  Thank you for choosing Auburn VW.

    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).

    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.

    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 just purchased my 4th VW Jetta. My new 2014 Jetta TDI is fun to drive, plus it gets great mileage. The best part about working at Auburn VW is the people. I work with great customers who are VW enthusiasts and other Parts Specialist team members who are knowledgeable, professional and love VWs!

    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.

    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!
