To Who This May Concern,

For a many years I’ve been fortunate your marvelous dealership cares for my TDI Passat station wagon.

Yesterday your Service Consultant, Bill, took great care of me. My questions about some mechanical issues he addressed with most remarkable knowledge. I then found out his mechanical prowess is off the charts because outstanding training he got from German technical institute.

You are fortunate to have him, and we regulars are very, very lucky.
