i would add that mark christopher (all gm) in ontario is a quality dealer. Bought my car there 4 years ago. Will buy my wifes caddy there. Only dealer i will ever let touch any of my cars again in socal... figured out a oil pressure issue when i had something in my pickup tube. 4 other dealers told me it was fine.

Yes Mark Christopher (all gm) is in Ontario California, not Ontario Canada. I bought my Camaro from them and they were good to buy from.

I take my car for service to a (fairly) new dealership that's now open in north Fontana California called Rotolo Chevrolet. Very nice facility, people in the service department are great.

This is shaping up nicely.

I have yet to find one in CA that owners have been happy with.

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.
Thanks, and what's the name of the dealership in Nanuet?

Del. We were looking for a 2011 Cruze Eco in the summer of 2010. Pretty hard to find actually. Another dealer that is not shady, just merely incompetent, did not find the car we wanted. Went to Del, in 24 hours they had the car we wanted in one of the two colors we were looking for, and they gave us a fair price and great trade in value on the Nissan we were driving, and paperwork was done in 20 minutes.
I'm using your post just because it was one of the more recent ones, not trying to call you out or anything like that.

I really don't want to add dealers to this list if the person's only experience is with the sales team, simply because I've been to dealerships where the sales people are complete jerks - but the service manager is the nicest guy out there.


Would people prefer if I clarified in the thread title with something like - "Servicing Your Camaro: Dealerships and Stealerships"

Very competitive pricing and they always keep a fresh inventory new and used! Great experience buying my SS there last year.

Abel Chevrolet in Rio Vista, (central) California. Great Dealership and the parts and service manager is on board. Rich takes GOOD care of the people who bring their cars in.

The below list are my opinion of stealerships in Northern California.

Boardwalk Chevrolet, Putnam GM, Stewart Chevrolet have bad marks in my book. Putnam sold out someone's order while they were on the way to pick up the car.
Folsom Chevrolet just refuses to sell anything at MSRP or below, even if someone qualifies for incentives/discounts.
John L Sullivan Chevrolet in Rosevile also have documented incidents that will make me not want to buy from them ever.

I'll throw one out there. Sequoia Chevrolet in Sanger. When I was looking for an SS 4 years ago, they were the only dealership in the area who weren't attaching a 5K mark-up. When warranty work was needed (oil cooler, pan gasket, rear main seal leaks) they fixed it and it stayed fixed.

Outright lies, improperly done service, removing all MSRP's from all vehicles on the lots, giving a car the sunshine oil change...all constitute stealerships.

Hence why I'm not adding dealerships to the list until the member explains why they rated the dealer the way they did.

Findlay Chevrolet out here in Nevada is probably the best Chevy dealer in Las Vegas. They are very knowledgeable and don't rip you off. Very friendly people. However bozarth Chevrolet is full of jerks that do not know what they are talking about. One of the service men was very rude to me and it just seemed like they didnt want my business.
