Good to deal with and no issues about mt GM Family discount. They also did me right about NOT taking my lease as trade-in (it was better to just pay the last three payments and "ground" it)
Somebody else may have a verrrrrry different opinion on this one !!!

Which one in particular was a stealership??

Had a pretty good experience at West Dade, Coral Gables, and Pembroke Pines Autonation (visited them all during my Camaro search), so idk about that input.....

I went to a total of 5 Chevy dealerships in South Florida, and I finally purchased at Coral Gables Autonation (formerly Maroone). Depends on the salesman you get....

bump - we need more dealerships. We've got tons of states that don't have any Dealerships.

What did you bring your car in for? The back story would be helpful

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"


Why? Need more than just the dealership name.



Service or Sales related?


Why?
I agree. I have a great salesman at Red River Chevrolet named Paul Meziere. It's their service center only that's the negative for me. Based on several visits as well, no one time thing. //I'll also add my experiences to my vote for continuity.

Garber Chevy in Green Cove Springs, FL

I bought my car from Garber in Michigan but had it delivered here at Garber in Florida. Great experience. Also take my car there for any issues and oil changes. Their service department has been fantastic with my car.

Make sense?
My bad, Stig...

I am guilty of not reading and comprehending your OP in full.

Makes total sense to me.

Now, it looks like you forgot to list my dealership on your list.

Dealership: Sport Chevrolet in Silver Spring, MD

Bought my first car here and was treated well. The service department is also great. Have three stories:
Went in for a headlight issue [left headlight had a pink hue while the right was normal white], they scratched my bumper while removing it. The service advisor told me about it and scheduled another day to fix it. I thought this was cool as they could've gave it back and left it for me to find days later with no proof that they did it.

I also went to get some tires mounted and balanced on my new Axis rims at the Merchants. I made an appointment early in the morning a week in advance, yet they had me there four hours and haven't even touched my car. I was told I was "17th" in line and I nearly had a heart attack. So I walked over to Sport [across the street], asked if they could slide me in, and they did so within the next hour and at half the cost Merchants were going to charge [$40 vs $90].

Sometime last year I took my door apart, handles and everything and it closed on me. Without a way to open it back up and not being able to mess with the lock/unlock mechanism from the little window gap, I dropped it off and said do whatever it takes. They got it back to me the same afternoon.

Also my service advisor is pretty cute.

Awesome Dealership in Leonardtown MD, Winegardner Motor Company (GMC, Chevy).

I had to take my car in for three things. Right speaker was blown, Driver seat control bezel was broken off, and the passenger mass airbag sensor went bad.

All were replaced, and in the process they called me to inform me each step of the way.

The only thing that made me shake my head was at how much the passenger airbag sensor was to replace, alone it was 450 bucks for one, seems kind of pricey.

Other than that, I think I will take my car to this dealership from now on for all my needs.

Long story, but I was standing right next to the manager looking at the interest rates and payments and such on his screen. There was no "write down a number and I'll come back." I felt the whole thing was very transparent. I have purchased over 15 new cars and this was definitely a top 5 experience.

Stig, Might want to identify town for Paradise Chevy on your OP list. There are two Paradise Chevrolets in Ca. that I know of. One in Temecula and One in Ventura. The one in Ventura has been great to me. They even put on a Monthly Car meet for free with BBQ for anyone that wants to come and any car. Great place and great people.
