The GM of JLS gave him the run around and they ended up not having a good time.

Weird I have not received any updates for this thread.

Yeah check the links in my signature, I told him to screw off. I ordered from Novato Chevy, from Paul Galassi, nice guy, he explained everything to me as far as what he was planning on doing etc... and otehr things I already knew from here of course, but very thurough. He told me they get one allocation a week and I am at #4, once I get to #1 he will call to get a deposit then it won't be long after that and my car will be here. They are charging $1,000 over MSRP, but at this point I'd rather pay that than $4,000 for maybe $1,000 worth of stuff that I don't want right now... or at all.

I also spoke with a Tim Boone at Boardwalk Chevrolet, he replied to 2 of my emails after 11:30pm... within minutes of emailing him. They either have an amazing auto response system that knew they had a yellow car on the lot just like I wanted, or he was up reading his emails that late. They offer GMS/Supplier pricing, but they have a 4-6 months wait... Tim was very helpful!

I also spoke with Ron MacMulkin of Macmulkin Chevrolet in New Hmpshire who offered to courtesy ship to me, he recommended himself Camaro Scotty whom we all know and love from Newman Chevrolet, and Eric from Classic Chevrolet in Texas.

Ron was very supportive and was sorry for the ordeal and said WE (those three) know how to treat customers. I believe it based on his help to date!

So that's the story.

I have yet to contact the Bee, or the news, or the BBB etc... I have been soooo busy, I barely have time to read these anymore. LOL But we all plan to do so!

Mike Daugherty is marking up $7500. I was just by there this week for service on the Malibu and looked at the SSs they have. I just bought the 'Bu from them a month ago, and though my wife didn't like the experience, I didn't mind it because I already knew what to expect. I thought we were treated well and though it took some time to negotiate, I felt we couldn't have gotten a better deal.

I bought from Sullivan back in '97 and like my saleman. The rest of the staff I didn't have much of an opinion about but I'm sorry to hear about your experience. SOUND OFF to keep people in our area in the know

Good job

We don't "Hate" you it is John L. Sullivan and his stealership that we have an issue with. Many people got involved, even John himself and his brother and every manager from your position up was involved and not a single one of them would do anything about the rip off scam that was going on, we were all told it was not their decision... that it came from John himself, so if that's the case I don't plan to ever EVER do business with him.

In fact I got into a heated conversation with the overall store manager who basically told me to F off, that he would not sell me the car I ordered in MY NAME, that could not have been placed without my name... I have never ever been so angry with anyone in my life, if I was face to face with him I probably would have laid him out cold, and I have a very very cool and calm demeanor, he just pissed me off something fierce.

John walks around with his fancy Jewelery and expensive clothes with a smug look on his face like his s*&t don't stink and says he is proud to be the #1 Chevy dealer in Northern Ca and it's thanks to people like us... yeah it's thanks to your ripping people off you low life SOB that you walk around like a pampas @$$

So please understand it is not you we are hating so much as your employer and everything they stand for. I highly doubt all the upper management has been removed or changed out or whatever happened with them, I am sure they are still there if not all a few for sure.

Theres a lot of GM dealers out there. After reading all the threads I wouldnt touch John L Sullivan Chevrolet with the 10 foot pole.
Even if they changed managment, tore down the building and re-built across town still not worth it in my book.

Your the customer. The dealers are there for YOU. Without YOU the consumer they have nothing.
