Bruce Biddle, NICECARS B4-TDI customer #455. Seattle tug boat Captain, picking up his "new" Tornado red" B4V-TDI on June 1,2014. This Wagon came to NICECARS Green with a tan cloth interior. Bruce wanted it Tornado red with a Black leather interior, sound deadening, alloy wheels and a 1970 retro stereo system.
From Bruce; "I sure like my new car especially on the highway. Its so smooth and powerful. I've been getting 45 around town and 50MPG on the highway. I have to watch it as the speed creeps up to 80 and 90 so easy. When I first got it I thought the fuel gauge was broken, then I discovered you have to drive about 150 miles before the needle moves off Full! Thanks NICECARS for a great car!"
Bruce McKay, NiceCars B4V-TDI customer #450, Portland, Oregon
Here is Bruce and family picking up their "new" 1996 Passat B4V-TDI Wagon, Black Magic Pearl, one of the original 980 B4V-TDIs sold in the US.
From Bruce; "It was a pleasure to meet you Saturday; thanks for walking me through the initial operating features of the car.
I thoroughly enjoyed my driving experience back to Portland."
8/6/14 UPDATE - As reported by Bruce McKay himself on several review sites!
The NiceCars team walked with me every step of the way, including helping me to get full financing from a major, national bank! I don't doubt their sincerity and integrity for a moment. There were some typical wear and tear issues after the purchase. Took it to a couple local VW "guru" shops. The first wrote me an estimate for a drive axle and clutch both entirely not needed, and in fact in new condition. The 2nd helped me with an electrical item, and both remarked on how clean and well maintained the engine was, "not usually seen like that." NiceCars has been with me behind the scenes while I resolved these minor items. I was pleased to be able to spend some time at the NiceCars shop. They addressed every single item I mentioned and even added some stuff. They stand behind everything they do and know the value of the B4V/S and want the customer to appreciate it too, is the impression I took away.
