Thumbs down John L. Sullivan Chevrolet in northern cali (roseville)

John L. Sullivan Chevrolet in northern cali (roseville)

This was my home town chevy dealership before leaving for college. I have had 2 experiences with them, both times I went in optimistic.

The first time I went in it was to get a quote on my trade. SUPER LONG STORY SHORT, after 2 hours I had no quote, no keys for my truck, and they cold rev'd an SS in front of me even though I wanted a v6 (money is tight). Then he tried to get me to sign a credit check without telling me what it was. I got very frustrated and demanded my keys and left empty handed.

The second time I went back it was for the service department. I was hoping for a better experience. One of my TPS went out, I thought it should be covered under warranty. The service manager told me because I bought the car used (30k miles) he couldn't be sure the tires hadn't been replaced and therefore the TPS was no longer under warrenty. Wanted $120 to fix it. I left and found another shop to do it for $60.

I have decided it is worth the drive to find a better dealership nearby. Even as far as Sac. I would love to have had a positive experience because I do want to trade up someday. Time to find someplace new..

Sounds like harbor chevrolet in Long beach, Ca. They looked at me and tried to push me on the cobalts and cheaper non-sports cars even though I repeated on more than 2 occassions that I wanted to look at the SS. I came by with my S/C camaro after and blew it in the sales guys face.Other dealers around ontario and san diego area let me test drive the SS and 2LT. Its just a hit and miss with certain dealers. I have yet to take my car to a dealer in the past 2yrs, i prefer to do my own mechanical work and electrical stuff to local muscle car shops. Best of luck in your next issue you run across man!

JLS Chevy is a joke. They are currently selling 2 Chevy SS (4-door sport sedan) for 10,000 over MSRP. The salesman said it was"market adjustment." They have a ZL1 with 900 miles, let it go before getting the buyer financed, and they still want over MSRP. Their greed is disgusting.

Well, I know what ZL1 I am never going to buy hahaha

Might as well stay away from the toyota dealership as well. JLS owns that too.

That ZL1 is still there with 900 miles. pricing was not listed but a salesman thought it was MSRP. i asked about the mmiles and he did disclose they had to get it back from someone that didn't pass finacing.

Delillo Chevy in Huntington Beach FTW.. If you ever have to go there ask for Patty or Darin in the service isle. They are GREAT people and both are car people so they know their $hit and won't blow smoke up your arse.

I work in Industry, Live in Downey and all the dealers in between for sales and service are very hit or miss (George Chevy in Bellflower is "ok" depending on which service guy you get, but their sales people are the worst).

I am not familiar with the sales side. I did visit there for an oil change last Saturday. When I told the service advisor I wanted all of the oils changed, he pulled a tech and removed my car from the express lube line. Car was done in an hour.

I bought my car at Performance Chevy off of Madison (north side of Sac). They had the exact car I wanted. It was a positive experience. Buying a new car is never as fun as it should be.

Since I'm in Elk Grove, Maita Chevy does all my service

Looked at a 1LE there and a salesman did a cold rev in front of me . . . shouldn't ever do that in front of a car guy
