I am passionate about Volkswagen. Extremely passionate. It's a great automobile and a lot of value for the money. I pride myself in knowing these cars inside and out. Customers say I'm a refreshing professional. I don't push a car on anyone. I don't push myself on anyone. All I do is present choices and options in a low-stress way. Honesty and integrity are what I'm all about, and I'll do whatever it takes to see you're a satisfied customer.

What customers are saying about
★★★★★ I seriously LOVED my experience at VW Santa Monica! I was greeted within seconds and directed to an AMAZING Sales Guy. He was the opposite of the 'Sales Guy' stigma. Mark Shapiro (and I'm sure the rest of the team) is a genuine, friendly, kind guy who just wants you to find a car you love for a price you love. And that's exactly what he did for me. Kaitlyn B.

★★★★★ I just purchased a used CC from VW of Santa Monica, and I have to say I had a fantastic experience. I have purchased and shopped for many a used car and this was as painless as it gets. It's mostly due to my favorite salesman Mark Shapiro (great name, right?). I actually ran screaming from the VW of Long Beach...it was a buyers worst nightmare over there. TGFM (Thank God for Mark). Carol C. More on Yelp.
★★★★★ No one likes car dealers right? They suck. So this review is not about the dealership but is about one particularly great dealer that I highly recommend, Mark Shapiro. If you are looking for a VW, he's your guy. I'm serious, even if you're not sure if a VW is for you, I'd still check them out. VWs are great cars, and Mark is a super dealer to work with. & BTW, I love my Eos! Maggie M. More on Yelp.
★★★★★ My husband and I love dealing with Mark Shapiro at Volkswagen in Santa Monica. You don't feel as if you are talking to a sales person - you feel like inviting him for dinner. Thank you Mark for helping both my husband and I lease our new Jetta's!! Always a pleasure! Susanne K. More on Yelp.
★★★★★ Purchasing a car for the first time can be scary but Mark Shapiro made my experience a wonderful one. I love my new car and would definitely recommend him!!! Natalie K. More on Yelp.
★★★★★ We had such a wonderful experience with Mark that 6 months later when our second car died, we didn't want to risk working with anybody else and contacted Mark right away. Just like our first experience, our second experience with Mark was great. He's a great salesman and very genuine guy. Candice C. More on Yelp.
★★★★★I recently leased a cc sport and was blown away by the excellent customer service I received from Mark Shapiro. In all honesty it was second to none. He was very knowledgeable and spent several hours helping me decide which model suits my needs. He was particularly patient as he walked me through the entire process from start to finish.

★★★★★ Great experience, got my wife a new R-line Beetle Convertible. Mark Shapiro was extremely professional and efficient. He treated us like family along with his sales manager and finance manager. What a great team! Buy Here!!!!!!
