Customer Feature - Roger Jin

2010-12-24 - Roger Jin

My name is Roger Jin, and I am the Parts manager at Volvo Pointe-Claire. I have worked here for over 11 years, starting out in sales, and now running the Parts department.

Our parts department is very active with the local Volvo club, the Club Volvo Quebec (, and we pride ourselves on being a very enthusiastic "Performance oriented" dealership. We offer many different lines of aftermarket performance products to our customers.

I have owned many different project cars over the years, my current project being my 1998 Volvo S70 T5 manual.

My true love is for wagons, and after purchasing a 2005 V50 T5 AWD 6-speed for my wife, I began to look for a 1998 V70 T5 manual as a new project car. After a long, unsuccessful search, I finally purchased decided to give up my search for a wagon and settle for a sedan.

I purchased my S70 in the spring of 2009, and it has slowly evolved into the car it is today.
