    I definitely appreciate the craftsmanship and engineering that make a Volkswagen stand apart from others, who wouldn't? But for me, it's more about the people then the cars.  My very first car was a Jetta (I named her Stella) and I learned to drive manual transmission with her.  I drove Stella 240,000 miles before we parted ways - on the original clutch! :)

  • THERESA MILLER
    Office Manager

    My earliest Volkswagen memories were with my family - on road trips of course! My brothers and I would try to be the first to yell "Punch-buggie, No punch-backs!" before giving one another a nice "friendly" punch in the arm.

    I started my career with Volkswagen, and it's the automotive brand that I've been with the longest. In my time with Volkswagen  I've noticed, what I find to be a very important quality, and that is these vehicles are safe!  I have seen owners of Volkswagens walk away from horrible accidents with minor to no injury, first-hand. Who wouldn't want that piece of mind when picking out a new car?!

    Ever since I can remember, I've watched my Grandfather work on cars; they were so easy for him to take apart and put back together. Soon I realized that quite a few of them were Volkswagens (Jetta's to be exact). 


    One day I asked him why he chose to work with Volkswagen so often. His reply: "This my child, is a REAL car".  Since then, Volkswagen has peeked my interest. And even though I don't work on them like my Grandpa, it puts a twinkle in my eye when I see the same smile on the customers face, as I do on my Grandfather's, when they purchase one.

  • DAVID MANDEVILLE
    Senior Service Advisor

    My love for cars began in high school where I completed the technician work study program. From there I went on to work as a mechanic until I transitioned to the advisor position.  I made the transition because I enjoy working with people and bringing humor to some tough decisions.  Making decisions about repairs or purchases can sometimes be difficult and I enjoy helping customers figure out what is the best decision for them as well as educating them on vehicle maintenance and repair.  Every vehicle I have owned I have driven a minimum of 200,000 miles.  I know proper maintenance is the key to a long happy car life.  Why VW? It's simple….the engineering, the reliability and the great looks.


    P.S. On the weekends I work as a Joe Pesci impersonator : )

  • AMY MORATZ
    Service Advisor

    I was born in Neihio Romania, moved to the United States at the age of three, and have been living in New Jersey ever since.  I have always had a passion for helping people, specifically in the automotive industry. I enjoy the Volkswagen products,  especially taking the EOS out occasionally for a drive on a sunny day, with the top down of course. 

    I went to school for Sport Management at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania; wanting to learn everything about the business side of sports. Today I am working in the automotive industry. What a great opportunity for me to learn everything I need and want to know about business (and cars) - there's no better place than Open Road Volkswagen in Bridgewater. Everyday I am learn more about the Volkswagen product line and in the near future I will be a proud owner of a Jetta SEL. It is truly a great car and has a need for speed on the road. 

    Hobbies: I grew up in North Jersey and enjoy watching all my favorite Tri State teams such as the GREAT New York Giants, Rangers, Yankees, and Knicks as well enjoying watching the University of North Carolina Basketball Tar Heels. People tend to call me a sports whiz and I could talk all day about any game or team with you while helping you pick out the perfect car.

    I became a Volkswagen enthusiast because of my brother.  When I was in grammar school he would take me to VW car meets and we would work on his together.  When it came time for the "rest of my life" it was obvious to me that working on Volkswagens was for me.   After completing technical school I interned at Open Road VW.  It was a perfect fit! Here I am, the proud owner of a 2013 GTI and a Volkswagen technician.  Every day I get to learn from the best and repair my favorite cars.  Not a bad gig!

  • LUIS MAURICO SANCHEZ PARRA
    Certified Technician

    I have a passion for music and Volkswagen. I started working with VW many, many years ago and never looked back.  I always believed that you can tell if a car is good by whether or not the mechanics that work on them own them.  I own and drive a Jetta 1.8 Turbo and my wife the Passat.  Recently, I  purchased my 17 year old son a GTI.  As a father, I trust the safety designs of Volkswagen to keep my son safe.  Being a new driver is scary for a parent.  At least I will know that he is in a safe vehicle.  As for my music, I DJ on the weekends.  Perhaps you have seen me at your wedding or party event?
