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.

Ray Chevrolet in Fox Lake, IL. Good prices on the cars, but go with cash.
Will low ball on the trade in and will not give competitive rates on the loan so make sure you go prequalified with your own company. I told them what other dealers were offering in trade, from 3K to 3.8K and my credit union was prequalified for 2.9%.

1. Offered $1000.00 on trade of a 2006 Chrysler 300.
2. "Best" interest rate they could come up with us 5.5% and pressured to get the loan from them.
3. As I demanded my keys back after getting tired of asking for them, heard the sales manager as the salesman if he should have offered me $3000.00 on the trade.

By the time I got home, about two hour drive, they offered 3800 on the trade and requested I come back out.

Turned it down and ended up with my sweet 2LT a few days later from a local dealer.

For service department, Bill Deluca's Woodworth Chevrolet Cadillac in Andover, MA. is Great!

David Brown is the Service Director there..... The guy went out of his way to get my Camaro fixed right. I might even go back there to get my '14 SS (1LE).

Dealership: Banner Chevy, New Orleans, LA

Purchase: I checked most dealerships from Baton Rouge to Mobile, AL. I got the first price from Banner and it turned out to be best.

Service: I have only been to their service dept twice but so far so good. Neither of my issues have been mod-related though.

Northeast Ohio?
Two good dealerships come to mind.
Classic Chevy Madison Ohio( Salesman Tom Hook)
Progressive Chevy Massillon Ohio (Salesman Jim Hall)

As with any dealership - do your homework before going in to buy.

And if you have a good idea where $$ you'd like to be with price, be prepared to buy with either of these two guys.

Have purchased 3 vehicles there. Good friend was our sales associate who confirmed the inner workings of their sales team as sound. I know that we are very happy with how our purchases went.

My cousins fiancé was also a mechanic there and I've always been satisfied with their service end as well.
