Low Country Volkswagen and Preowned nominated for Best Place to Buy a New or Used Car in Charleston
Shortly after winning Mt. Pleasant Magazine’s 2020 ballot for Best of Mt. Pleasant, Low Country Volkswagen and Preowned’s staff and owners are elated to find themselves also on the ballot of Charleston City Paper’s Best of Charleston 2020 voting. Nominated in two categories, Best Place to Buy a New Car and Best Place to Buy a Used Car, the twin locations on Johnnie Dodds Boulevard in Mount Pleasant took to social media to share the news and ask for the support of their loyal and enthusiastic customer base here in coastal South Carolina. The Volkswagen store has for decades been serving the greater Charleston and surrounding areas with a simple and straightforward approach — no hassle, friendly Southern atmosphere, comfortable approach, easy dealings. The core elements of their success are simplicity and transparency. There are no add-ons to their vehicle pricing, no nitrogen-filled tires, market adjustments, or other alterations to inflate the cost of their inventory. And their leasing and financing options are equally uncomplicated. They offer the best available terms on any vehicle based on each customer’s lender approval status. For well-qualified buyers, that means 100% of manufacturer incentives are applied to your lease or purchase, as well as any dealer discounts down to invoice, any additional qualifying rebates, and the same low rates offered by any preferred lender.
Their sales process offers a stark contrast for most car buyers; while some dealerships offer enormous (often unattainable) discounts off of pre-inflated prices with punishing finance terms customers must accept to get the “best deal”, Low Country Volkswagen will transparently offer every bit of information to the customer to help them make an informed decision and see clearly the deal they’re getting. Customers can see each vehicle’s MSRP, but also the dealer’s invoice cost, manufacturer rebates and dealer cash for each specific car, bottom line price, even total cost with interest over a completed finance term or total out of pocket costs on a lease. All of this information is presented clearly and without the usual back-and-forth negotiating. General Manager Tracy Poudrier leads a team of experienced professionals who set out daily to do things the right way and make honesty, willingness, and effort their watchwords.
The service team of Low Country VW can no less be held in high regard for their contribution the the dealership’s stellar reputation. Doug Diehr is the Volkswagen Master Certified Service Consultant whose name peppers countless five-star reviews on Facebook, Google, and Cars.com. Clients’ glowing recommendations echo the same things time after time — courteous, friendly, professional service with their best interests at heart, not the most expensive option. Low Country Preowned has likewise begun to garner attention among East Cooper locals — Liz Acuff runs the used car store for Low Country with a selection of vehicles suited for all, from low-cost vehicles customers can sort by their desired payment to sought-after badges including AMG Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Lexus, Audi, Alfa Romeo, Land Rover and more.
The team of associates at Low Country Volkswagen and Preowned are grateful for the nomination and hopeful at the prospect of being named Best of Mt. Pleasant and Best of Charleston in 2020. Longtime veteran Steven Richburg has amassed a loyal client base in the community; relative newcomer Leif Petersen is winning his own fans with a perennial smile that never leaves his face. Like their customers, the staff here are Volkswagen enthusiasts. Parts Manager Virginia Campanelli recently traded her Jetta in for a new Tiguan. Internet Manager Charles Davis loves helping friends and family find their perfect car or truck — like his mom’s Denim Blue Beetle. Previous and prospective customers alike are encouraged to read the outstanding reviews for Low Country VW, see the peaceful car buying experience firsthand, and cast your vote for Low Country Volkswagen and Preowned as the Best Place in Charleston to Buy a New or Used Car.
