Review: Raf was amazing- I came in to purchase a 2018 Tiguan. Raf located the vehicle I wanted at a great price and made sure it was delivered as promised. Thanks! – Jackie

Review: Sales person Ralph Bruno was exceptional, responding to my questions quickly and accurately. I needed a quick delivery and that was accomplished. Everything was ready when I picked up the vehicle. I did everything over the phone so this was unusual for a typical sale. Everything went smoothly.

Review: My husband and I bought two Jettas. We loved our new cars. Raffaele was very personable and professional. He told us his honest opinion on each car we test drove and would suit our needs best. Very nice guy! I never felt so comfortable buying a car. Great experience and I love my new car. He even reminded me about taking our car to Volkswagen for servicing when I reach 15,000 km to the dealership.

Review: I needed a new car quite quickly and was looking for the best value for me. Raffaele Bruno made the experience quick and easy. He really listened to my needs and I didn’t feel pressured by him. I found the perfect car – an affordable but luxurious 2016 Volkswagen Jetta. Raffaele was so great to work with, my boyfriend bought a car from him a couple of weeks later. Looking forward to working with him again in the future! Thanks Raffaele!

Review: This was my first function at a dealer since 1994 and it was not too bad I hope to have a decent relationship with Owasco.

Review: Raff helped with our recent Passat purchase. As former Jetta owners, we are VW loyal, but it was a question of which model was right for us next with out bigger family. He was honest, personable, friendly and easy to deal with. Highly recommend Raff!

Review: Bought my used 2014 Jetta TDI from Raffaele at Owasco – great experience. This is our 4th TDI. We drive quite abit and owned this car for 12 days before adding fuel. I’m planning a driving vacation next month to the East Coast. I’m a TDI fan for sure! Crossing my fingers that VW honours the corrosion guarantee on my 2006. Cheryl L, Kawartha Lakes

Review: Raff was fantastic to deal with. He talked to me about what I was looking for and then found me the perfect car.


Star Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Review: Raff was great to work with. I would absolutely buy a car from him again. He was informative but not “”salesy”” in his approach and worked hard to get me a good deal.


Star Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Review: Raffaele was attentive to our needs, knowledgeable with VW products and didn’t push us towards vehicles way out of price range. We came in for a used car, Raffaele quoted us some good numbers and then mentioned he could get us into a new one for just 50$ more per month. He let my wife and I come to the conclusion that the new car was better for us, and it wasn’t that much more money.
We appreciate that more then anything, we HATE pushy sales people. Raffaele was the opposite, it was a very comfortable experience. We will come back to VW when our Ford is ready for trade in, if we are satisfied with how the Jetta worked out.

Review: This was the second vehicle I purchased from Rafael , both times he was very helpful in getting me exactly what I wanted. This time I purchased the vehicle completely over the phone without even seeing it he helped me and getting a good deal for my trade in and got me the car I want it . He was very friendly and easy to talk to. Even gave me his cell number so I could get ahold of him easier.

Review: I spoke with Raffaele on the phone Friday night . He had the car warmed up when I got there Sat. A.M. We made the deal and I picked the car up the following Sat. I was kept informed through the week, as to when the car would be ready. Can’t say enough good things about the whole experience. Raffaele is a super nice guy, took care of all the details; plates ,car detailing ,car gassed up, etc. I noticed new brakes front & back were installed for the safety. Would recommend you guys to anyone! Thanks, Jesse.

Review: Visited the dealership on the first occasion and had a brief conversation with the salesperson. Advised I will be looking for a vehicle in a couple of years.

Review: Service was outstanding, helped me with the new features. open for contact in the future, if i have forgotten and or need help.
very knowledgeable


Star Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Review: It was a very smooth and relaxing transaction considering that buying a car is seen as being a stressful situation. Raffaele was extremely accommodating and came in early to meet with me during both of my visits; however, did not communicate this to front desk staff who seemed to be a little confused. Luckily, he was in communication with me personally and there was no confusion on our end. While working with the financial agent, there was a bit of confusion with the down payment as I had paid the $500 deposit and had requested that it be used as a down payment. The $500 ended up being returned to me which was not what I wanted, and my payments are larger than I had hoped due to this. That being said, Owasco Volkswagen was a very nice and accommodating dealership and Raffaele was the reason the experience was so exceptional

Review: I purchased my VW Jetta TSI at the beginning of July 2015.

I was welcomed, well taken care of, and I didn’t leave disappointed. They definitely care about their clients: not only at the time of purchase, but also afterwards. Special thanks to Dominic Madej, Raffaele Bruno and Beth Brady!
