GENE KAGANOVSKY IS THE GO TO SALES PERSON.
Borton Volvo in Golden Valley is customer oriented and honest. Gene Kaganovsky is the go to sales representative at Borton. I just bought my fourth Volvo from Gene who is honest, fair, reliable and professional. He loves his product and he knows it very well. Either stop in or call and arrange an appointment. The experience will be outstanding. After you purchase a Volvo, the Service Dept. at Borton will care for your car incredibly well.

I prefer Borton Volvo above every other Volvo dealer I've visited.

I bought my Volvo V70R used on eBay and drove it back from Denver.  Despite that, Chris Moist and her colleagues in the service department have known me by my voice alone after my first phone call there and continue to treat me like a friend six years later.

I live almost four hours away, but Chris and friends have always been willing to accommodate my sometimes odd requests that allow me to get my car serviced while flying from MSP or in town on other business. They've stored my car form until I've returned from a trip and arranged little tricks that allowed me to get the keys and paperwork when I arrive at their lot at 0300 hours after an international flight. They work with my scheduler to find appointments that fit with my busy schedule.

Chris has saved me money by advising against unnecessary repairs recommended by my independent shop up north that were made on the basis of mistaken diagnoses of the problem.  A dealer that advises against a repair!  Have you heard that before?

This bunch takes responsibility for their work.  Years ago, they installed an iPod connectivity kit.  When it did not initially work, they had so many mechanics on that car it looked like the Border Patrol going after a pot bust!  In the end it was just a fuse, but I appreciated the responsiveness!

The location is perfect.  An easy walk across the street, Kowalski's Market offers great pastries for a snack.  Further down the block, Prima restaurant offers high quality authentic Italian at a fair price. I look forward to going to Borton for the food!

Borton offers a shuttle for local trips, but often I just take the bus downtown.  There is a stop conveniently located across the street.

Multiple service appointments, thousands of dollars spent and still had the same problem.  Management would not return phone calls, miscommunication about which parts were replaced... absolute disaster.  Avoid at all costs.  (Check out my review for Benchmark Auto Service)

I believe I'm a fairly forgiving person. We all make mistakes, and God knows I've made more than a few myself. But there is a limit to what is reasonably forgivable. And maybe my personal rule is closest to Bush's mangled phrase: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me, and you can't fool me again."

In 2001, flush with brand-new-job money and eager to replace my 1992 Bonneville, I went out looking for a suitable car for a young, up-and-coming lawyer. And Volvo had recently released the S40, which was fairly decent looking. I went to Borton, test-drove it, liked it, and sat down to haggle on a price for a lease. And, to put it bluntly, the price I got was nowhere near fair. The cumulative amount of the lease payments was close to 80% of the sticker price of the vehicle, which is particularly problematic for a Volvo, a brand which is known for longevity. I ultimately walked out in frustration.

As time went by, the memories of being lied to faded. When I had walked out in 2001, I promised myself I would never go back. But, in 2005, I was back on the car market, and I found myself drawn to the S60. And so, ignoring my good judgment, I went back. And the test drive was great. Really enjoyable. Reminded me why I like Volvos. And so I sat back down, once again, to see if we could set a price. And the exact same freaking thing happened.

Now, I fully understand that my outrage, justified though it may have been after the first time, is actually pretty silly the second time around: what the hell was I expecting to happen? The same thing happened that happened before, the exact thing I should have expected to happen all along. Only an idiot would have expected things to go any differently. Well, an idiot or a real optimist. Which is how I usually get burned.

So, this is where we are at the end of the day: I'm never going back. I'm not going in, I'm not even going to drive by the place. Two times is my limit, and it's frankly once more than what I should have allowed in the first place. Optimism has its drawbacks, but it has limits, too. And I'm there.

There are certain things you just have to bring your Volvo to a dealership for...even if it is all the way across the cities.  While it is not my first choice, I'm glad I've brought my business here the two times I've needed "modules" fixed on my 2001 Volvo.  The first time my repair was free because it was a warranty (recalled?) item.  The second time I got a nice discount for being patient (the repair took much longer than necessary).  Borton gave me a loaner the second time (not the first time) but it was from Enterprise.
I was surprised at how bare-bones and sterile the waiting area feels.  I think they could jazz it up a bit to make it feel more like a luxury car dealership.  On the other hand, if that's going to make my repairs more expensive, nevermind!

Pleasant, non-aggressive, straightforward sales staff.  They worked well with my lender and were on top of all the paperwork.  Fantastic, seamless experience!  Oh, and they make great deals without having to haggle.  I got a much better quote than I did with 'the other guy'.   Ask for Misti...she is awesome.

I was about to give this place a one star vote, until I discovered that the reason for me hating on this place was really all my mother's fault. She had a flat and was getting it repaired, and called me at 7am to pick her up and run some errands for a couple of hours. I was a little shocked that this place didn't give her a loaner, after all the Audi and Lexus dealerships do. So, as we headed out on the highway and I was bitchin about them not giving her one, and her defending them by saying it wasn't their fault she ran over a nail, I discovered that she didn't ask for one. She thought it better to have me chauffeur her around. I think she just wanted to spend some time with me, but I would have enjoyed it more if I had washed my face and thrown on a bra before heading out into the world that day.

Upon dropping her off, I decided to check out the place. It was nice inside, but nothing special. There's a business center, TV, coffee and tea, current magazines, and a complimentary car wash.

Why 3 stars? Because they didn't offer a loaner car without her having to ask specifically, and instead I became the temporary driver.
