I'll be adding to this as I find more (feel free to recommend some). Once we get a solid list going this will become a sticky.

You might wanna be more specific. Like which is red or black. Personally I think you should make a list seperate and just have stealerships.

Red is stealer ships, would making the dealerships green make it easier to understand?

Not sure how they operate as far as a dealership that we're familiar with, but we do have folks in Puerto Rico, Europe, Middle East, etc...who buy new cars as well...

Well we already have a "Price Gouging Dealers" sticky in the Camaro Ordering / Pricing subforum so I guess you could say this is for service.

I'm more than happy to add them, but do people overseas even have that many options for dealers?

Excellent. This is what is needed!!! All who have great experiances with your dealer service center make it known as they deserve fellow members business. The bad ones need to be outed as well. Lets hope the good ones far out number the bad.

I think this is a little reckless? I understand the point here, but the potential for abusing such a list is high. You're going by the word of someone you don't know and never met?

Also, isn't there already a sticky on this very issue in the dealer section?

Her e my thoughts. In my area there a poster that said that a certain dealer had a great but to me they was losey. I got pissed off and went to another dealer and got it there for$1500 less. If I wasn't pissed I might gotten cheaper. So you got one black and one red.
I will not so one way or the other. It to much on a opinion.

1 bad interaction with a dealership will deem them a stealership regardless of fault?

Found it!

Shreveport/Bossier City, Louisiana

Bad service: Red River Chevrolet---More than one oil change that left oil on and underneath my car(should have taken pictures but I didn't). When I brought it back because of the oil all underneath my car the service desk guy(not sure what they are called) got the tech that did the oil change, put my car on a lift, and showed me it wasn't leaking(which I knew already). They wiped it off and sent me on my way. I was so upset at the whole ordeal I emailed the service manager directly and only then did I get an apology and of course, some free oil changes.---They rotated the tires on my 2SS/RS(staggered setup of course) at one of the previously mentioned oil changes. I did have one good experience with a tech that was great named Mike Rader, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't have only him touching my car(he did an alignment on my car and he allowed me to watch and he explained it all to me, very nice guy!). So overall, bad.**apparently I DID take pictures-not as dumb as I thought!**

Good service(so far): Chevyland

I didn't base my "vote" on one single incident. I would hope others will consider all visits and weigh accordingly.

I completely agree that it could be abused.

Idea - the member has to post their story as to why its a dealership/stealership, and I could make the dealership/stealership text a hyperlink to said post.

And yes, but that sticky is specifically about dealers that charge more than MSRP - aka "Price Gouging Dealers"

Stealership Jessup Auto Plaza & Paradise Chevrolet Temecula

Jessup has wrecked my truck, argued with me that my trucks motor was fine, then they rebuilt my motor after I made them do a compression check, have screwed up my rims on my SS, gouged my door panel of my SS and more. Think that should be enough for now

Paradise Chevrolet sold me a "new" Camaro SS, after I bought it I knew something wasn't right with it. It had been wrecked and had $10,000 in damage. Had to fight with them to buy it back. Think that should suffice as to why they are both stealerships.

Oh and I have proof about paradise as well, paid $600 for a professional to write a small book on it so I could fight the stealership.
