General Manager

Ram Tehrani
General Manager

The GM Ram is truly caring and professional.  I leased a gorgeous Volvo XC60 and when speaking with Ram he was attentive and extremely respectful.  I feel like he treated me as he would want others to treat his own family.  Highly recommend and look forward to working with him again on a car deal.

I had the pleasure of working with Michael and Leigh who fought tooth and nail to not only get me what I wanted, but ended up getting me a better car for less than we initially negotiated. They were quick to respond and stayed in constant communication throughout the process.

Roman Camacho
Sales Associate

I just leased a 2015 XC60 from Roman at Culver City Volvo, and he was great!  He was knowledgable and kind and went above and beyond to get me a deal at the number we were comfortable at.  I can truly say for the first time that I got a GREAT deal!  The rest of the sales staff was very kind as well.  We had our 2 year old son running and screaming during a lot of the transaction, and they were super cool about it.  I would definitely recommend Roman as a sales person!

We experienced excellent service at Culver City Volvo. We worked specifically with Richard Diaz. He was very knowledgeable about the cars and also very honest with us. I was pretty specific with what I wanted in my XC60 and he was able to find me exactly what I wanted. If I decide to buy another Volvo, Culver City Volvo and Richard will be my first choice!

Customer Care

Rosie Milad
Customer Experience Manager / Product Delivery Specialist

This was the first car that leased on my own; without any help from my parents. To say the least, I was nervous. I went to Culver City Volvo because they offered the most competitive price. I stayed because of Rosie. She was friendly, made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions (and there were a lot of them) and gave me a sense that she was going to take good care of me.

He also explained the maintenance schedule and answered all the other questions I had. Thanks again, Dan!!

Service Department

Alex Flores
Service Director

I was called in for the repair of recall items. However, when I arrived, I was told there were no recall items for my car. I was not happy. But Lawrence made things right by tracking down the error as to why I was ever called and Alex made it better by running a diagnostic on my car just to be sure all was ok and getting me out of there as promised within 20 minutes.
