How it all began…..
My name is jay Pichardo and I have been a VW salesman for 4 years. during my years at Volkswagen I have noticed that less and less people take the time to learn about what they sell and pass this info on to costumers. While I am no know-it-all pro, I spent much of my downtime researching and learning about my product and have became the go to resource guy for must of the guys I work with.
In a recent trip to Southern New Jersey I posed as a costumer interested in a new Volkswagen. I walked in and told the guy I was looking for a 09 Volkswagen and I wasnt sure what I wanted:
” Hello I am looking for a new car and my must haves are DSG, TSI and the RNS-510″ The guy looked at me like I had 3 heads. “I dont think they have those in the US market, lets go inside and I can ask my manager”. A few days latter back at my dealer a co-workers approached me and asked me to show his costumer how set up the MDI with his iPod, after shaking my head for a few seconds it hit me. maybe not everyone is as much of a tech geek as I am, I have owned 5 Volkswagens, I spent countless hours a day reading blogs and forums, and I have logged many hours at VW training classes, I cant expect everyone to be like me.
But does every dealership have a “Jay” sitting around? and if the sales people don’t tell costumers how do they find out about the cool things the cars can do? and no nobody reads the owners manual!
So armed with my new found wisdom I grabbed a camera and went around the lot and started a series of videos to teach people and other sales people about the really neat features that VW has put on our cars, the rest is history.
So welcome to my blog! first and foremost I was born and raised in a island so pardon my poor grammar skills and heavy accent, I try my best. I will be using this blog to bring you my latest videos and the latest on VW news.
