We had an absolutely fantastic experience at Volkswagen of Milwaukee North! David, our salesman, was friendly and so accommodating beginning with the very first time I called. He immediately invited us to come for a visit and take a test drive. He was polite, courteous and very informative. He responded immediately to answer questions that I had even though it was after hours. Two days later we completed all the power work and drove our new SUV home. Anthony was very professional when we completed all our financial paperwork as well. We highly recommend buying a car at this dealership!
