Hope someone in NC can chime in with dealer reputable IN NC 80 mile radius of GSO in the event of warranty repairs.

This is an excellent sticky for camaro and chevy owners.

I've found that performance oriented Dealerships are generally better.
Both of the Dealers I've had good experience with actually had crate engines in stock and on display (a 502, ZL1 and LSA).

So reading through this thread and updating the OP, I've come to realize that having people just post the name of a dealership/stealership isn't really enough. So I'm asking that the members whom I've quoted below - please repost with the back story to your dealership/stealership.

Understand it's nothing personal, I'm just trying to keep/prevent this list from being abused (if that makes sense).

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.
Soooo - is this a dealership or a stealership?

Sorry. With the way they lowballed and then pushed for only financing through them, stealership. Anyone that did not do enough work up front could get hosed by them.

Courtesy...lied during the purchase, lied during subsequent visits, treats customers like they are fools, and lie at the service drive.

Midway...lies about everything

Power on Bell road..just have no idea what they are selling, and the salesmen stand around talking to each other instead on taking care of customers.

Gateway. Honest people and customers like them

Vans...good reputation in Phoenix in all areas.

Coulter Caddy..great service department

Bankston Chevy woudn't deal at all and wanted about 2.5k over MSRP for the car I wanted. On top of it they were trying to low ball me on my trade in by about 2.5k saying something about they couldn't warranty the car because it had rims that weren't factory even though the rims were on it from the original dealership with the factory warranty. I told them this and they said to bad. Overall they made me feel like I was bothering them by being there so I left.

Moritz Chevy I had several issues with their Maint dept trying to charge me for warranty work and when I took my girl there to look at cars the salesman was very pushy and lied about numerous things about the cars and financing options that would be available. I just let the guy talk while I listened to him try to BS us then we left.

This applies to all so no need to list it three times.

http://www.classicchevrolet.com/
http://www.brucelowriechevrolet.com/
http://www.billynavarreauto.com/

All three made me feel at home answered all my questions and were truthful to me even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear. They definitely made it apparent they wanted my buisness and were willing to work with me to get it. I have no bad things to say about any of them.

easiest, most no hassle car purchase I've ever made. never pushed or twisted my arm into anything. If I said no to something, they moved on. when they couldn't find the second key made arrangements for me to get another one before I even drove off the lot. I didn't have to twist arms about it. didn't even have to ask. they told me it was lost and then told me how it would be corrected.

There should be 3 fox dealers listed in Maryland. One in laurel, one Baltimore, one Timonium. My review was for Timonium while another poster commented on behalf of laurel and bmore.

yeah...ummm....so how do the dealerships get rated?if someone has a bad interaction then the name is posted in red here?what if the customer had totally unrealistic expectations?or wanted something for free and didn't get it,so they got pissed?or they screwed something up and tried to get the dealership to cover it?

this list is just a bad idea all around.

Lakewood on Route 88 a stealership? I completely disagree. They gave me almost 6k off my price. They are a great dealership, always willing to go the extra mile. Lakewood Chevy has helped me out tremendously, always had a solution to the problem. Let me test drive a SS convertible. They're a great dealership. I don't work for them.
The Cadillac/ Chevy dealership in Nanuet on Route 304 is a stealership. They treated me horrible. Constantly talking down to me and acting all condescending. They kept calling me to do a review when if I I did I was going to write a nasty one. I got treated with sarcastic remakes such as when I went there on Saturday, the one worker said "well did they tell you to come here today?"
"No"
"Then why would you come?"
I'm not an idiot, the worker had a sarcastic bitter tone to it. I don't post here often only because I'm a sarcastic asshole lmao.
Just saying.

Ontario

Stealership -> Dan Kane Chevrolet - tried to take me for an extra $3000, saying it was lowest I'd find in the city () even tried to pressure me into signing, saying that deal was only good if I signed at that very moment. Do NOT recommend!


Dealership -> Reaume Chevrolet - Went over and above to get me into my Camaro. Gave me a great deal and they did everything they could to get me the lowest price. Very welcoming and treat you like family. Best dealership experience ever!! Recommend for anyone in the area. Service: Great Service! Made me feel at ease when I brought in vehicle.

I would have to agree with you regarding Steves, Hedricks and Liberty. Have not dealt with Tracy.

Dealership-Viva Chevrolet, El Paso, Tx

Took my 1le camaro back to my original dealership to fix a improperly installed front splitter, they wanted to glue it. I took it to Viva Chevrolet and they looked at it and after 5 min. determined that the end brackets were broken and ordered a new one and installed with no issues. Another time mine steering wheel was off center and they aligned it for free and insured my wheels would not be scrathed or the front splitter damaged going on the alignment machine. Very professional.
