Great Car Buying Experience

by from McKinney, TX |

This is my fifth Honda and my recent purchase of the 2013 CRV was the best buying experience so far. I found the car I wanted online and and filled out the application. They called me back right away, and by that afternoon that exact car was washed and waiting for me when I arrived. Yuni Chon the GM and Jessica Ruggero made the trip from McKinney worth it. They were so helpful and I thought the finance department was top notch. I would recommend Vandergriff Honda to anyone.

Thumbs up!

by from Arlington, TX |

I defintely recommend Vandergriff Honda in Arlington! My experience was amazing! Eddie Vargas made the process less stressful and very seamless. He went above and beyond to get me approved and work within my budget requirements AND I am thoroughly enjoying my new car! I will always recommend this dealership and especially Eddie to my friends and family!

Continuous mailings against our wishes!

by from Arlington TX |

After MANY calls, this business does not stop their direct advertising to us. They also added our e-mail to their mailing list, after a visit to the service dept, without our permission. Finally, we were able to stop the electronic mail, but the paper mail continues, now also at the national level. When addressing our concerns on their Facebook site, there were no replies, instead we were blocked from posting comments on their Facebook! AVOID this business!

Service Review

by from Arlington, Tx |

Daniel Higgins was a great Service advisor. He got me in and out in an hour. He found a battery that would not pass inspection and fixed it by getting me a new one. I would bring my 2012 CRV to him soon to get other repairs done. He was friendly and upfront with me.

Have Faith Again!!!

by from Arlington |

Veron Shorter (Service Advisor) gave me FAITH in this Arlington Service Center again! Last two times I came for service, I felt a hard sell to get repairs that were not necessary. I felt like the person helping me was like a used car person pressuring me to get things done for their profit. Even investigated other places to go to get my car serviced even though I have been going to the service center since it was on division street (1992). Decided to try the service center again... thank goodness I got Vernon. He has a down to earth customer service nature where he really listens to you and has a great attention to details along with follow through. When I first got to the service center, made sure Veron knew I had a coupon, he instantly made me feel comfortable by saying a woman used the same coupon earlier and saved a lot of money. That made me smile because I knew he understood how I valued coupon savings! Then when the mechanic discovered a transmission leak he offered to show me it which I declined because I was in the middle of working while I was waiting.... without me even saying anything he offer to get me a rental car so that I could go back to work while my car was being fixed. He doesn't even know how much stress he took from me!!! Every single step that day I felt he was on top of it...... When I left that day he told me to not hesitate to call if I had a questions or concerns. Then he followed up three days later!!! Never once did I feel he was trying to upsell me or get me to fix things that were not necessary instead he concentrated on making me have a stress free car repair service experience. What I did leave with that day, was feeling that I just experienced excellent customer service which would inspire me to come back. Hope Veron's management recognizes his temperament and quality of customer service he provides. If you want repeat customers please model your advisors after him!!! Stop the hard sell approach and instead focus on stress free car repair experience!!! Please give Veron a raise so that I know he will be there when my next service appointment is due. Veron is greatly appreciated! Keep doing what you are doing!!! It is the right way!!!

Extreme disappointment

by from Arlington, TX |

I have been a long time Vandergriff Honda customer. I have serviced and purchased vehicles there since 2005. In July of this year (2013), I took my 2002 CRV in for a complete checkup. (I had loaned it to a friend and did not think it had been taken care of in the manner I would.) I requested all the fluids be checked and changed and had about $2000.00+ worth of work done to it. Approximately 2000 miles later my husband took it in to have the brakes and transmission checked. We spent another large sum on vehicle maintenance. My husband was told that the transmission fluid was ?filthy? and that filth was indicative of some leaking seal and other transmission problems. My husband reviewed the July receipt with the service writer, showing him that the transmission fluid was allegedly changed in July. We were not charged full price for the ?second? change of transmission fluid. Approximately 1500 miles later my husband took the vehicle to a Honda dealership in Wyoming to have it winterized. Voila, the transmission fluid was pristine. We will not be using any of the Vandergriff dealerships for anything in the future. I now refer to it as Vandergraft Honda.

Great service

by from Arlington, Tx. |

I never bought a car from Vandergriff Honda only because they did not have the vehicle I was looking for. I did however talk a lot with their sales team and I was impressed how quick and friendly they were. They were very nice and I never felt pressured at all. I would definitely recommend them to every one I know.

broke word every step of the way

by from Arlington, TX |

We bought a 2013 Accord at Vandergriff Honda in June of 2013. Initially, we negotiated a walk-out price via email. We confirmed that all we had to do was show up and pick out the color. When we showed up, picked out the color, they added $4k to the price and then circled the fine print saying it was a base price. After walking out and the manager finding us with the email chain indicating the walk-out price, they offered to honor the original deal. Then they said they could not honor it, but would give us the car on the lot for only an additional $500 above their mistake price. Then they said, they would not honor this new offer and would bring in a different car from elsewhere with almost all the same features - fortunately, we didn't care about the discrepancy in the features. All this within about 90 minutes!! So then we go back to the finance office were we got some deals on warranty and the neat skylink anti-theft system, etc. OK, we're happy and know the pain should be over and we'll pick up our new car later in the day. After calling the dealer several times after the time they told us they would call, they finally told us the car was in and only had to go through the wash. So we pack up the kids and go to pick up the new car. Only the car in the wash was for someone else!! The next day, the car is there and ready. Now they have the VIN and can complete the paper work...fine one more signature!! Then they say they won't honor the deals they offered in the finance office. OK, that's it, give me back my deposit, I'm leaving!! In reply, they decide to honor the finance offer. Fast forward 3 weeks. Where is the letter/communication activating the skylink? Where is the call/mailing saying the plates are in (which should have been in after 5-10 days after delivery). More calls to the dealer: plates aren't in (received letter next day saying plates are in); they will activate skylink. Fast forward 2 more weeks: what's up with skylink? they say skylink was never installed and we need to bring car back and wait 90minutes for them to install it. The only redeeming part of this whole fiasco is that Vandergriff tried to make up for their incompetence each step of the way.

Just Be Honest

by from Fort Worth |

On Thursday 8-15-13 I went to Vandergriff Honda in Arlington to buy a cash car. As I approached the entrance, I was greeted by a salesman. He ask if he could help me. I told him I was looking for a cash car between 5 and 6 thousand dollars. He said they just sent some used cars to auction but he would check to see what was left on the lot as soon as he finish some paper work. I sat for about 30 minutes with no help. Salesmen would walk by and speak and keep walking. Nobody ask if I've been helped or if I needed some help. Finally a young salesman walked over and ask if I've been helped. I told him that I spoke to someone over 30 minutes ago about buying a used vehicle. He said they were probably looking over the inventory. Well 20 minutes go by and still no help. He finally came back over to me and said he would help. We went outside and looked at several vehicles. We finally settled on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe. After the test drive, I said I would buy it if they fixed a few minor repairs including the check engine light. We went inside and completed the paper work. Since the salesman who helped me didn't come in until 11:00am the next day, I decided to wait until he came to work to finalize the sale and get the vehicle. About 11:15 the next day, he called to see if I was still coming in. I told him I would be there within 30 minutes. I had a friend drop me off since I would be driving the vehicle home. We went into the finance office and completed the paper work. The salesman went to get the vehicle. About 15 later, he returned and said the vehicle wasn't ready. The mechanic said it wouldn't be ready until Monday at the earliest. I told him that was unacceptable. I wanted to speak with management. After speaking with management, he explained that they wanted to make sure the vehicle was properly checked before they released it. He said they could probably have it ready by Saturday. I ask to speak with the mechanic who was going to work on the vehicle. They sent the shop foreman instead. I told him I didn't want to buy a vehicle if I was going to have problem with it six months later that would cost me more than what it's worth. He said once he put it on the monitor he could fix the problem that exists at that time. Six months from now it could be something else. He promised to include what he fixed with the final invoice. Saturday around 2:00pm I called to speak with the salesman. He was busy with a customer. He finally called back about 45 minutes later. I ask if the vehicle was ready. He said he would check and call me back. Around 5:30pm he called and said the vehicle would not be ready until Monday. He went on to say it's taking so long because there were 14 more used vehicle they were working on ahead of me. I knew then that there was something wrong with the vehicle that they were not telling me. When I told him when I purchased the vehicle on Thursday, I was suppose to pick it up Friday morning. He became upset and said he never promised me the vehicle would be ready on Friday. At that moment, I lost ALL respect for Vandergriff Honda. Why would I close a deal on Thursday knowing I can't get the vehicle until Monday at the earliest? I truly believe the owner of the vehicle traded it in because it was going to cost more to fix than what the vehicle was worth. Today (8-19-13) I will be there when the doors open to cancel the contract. Since I never drove the vehicle off the lot, technically it still belongs to them even though it's paid for. If they would have been honest up front, we could have work together. But what it came down to was a young salesman trying to meet his quota for the month and a dealership trying to get rid of a lemon.

do not go to this dealership. they will do a bait and switch on you. you go in to look at a car and they tell you they sold it last night, but they still have it listed on their web site. they say it take 24 to 48 hours to get off they stie, not. they will list your trade on their site and don't have any title or right to do so, calle d about my car on their site and they said it was on their lot, how could it be when it is in my driveway. they took all of my tags and stickers off of mine and damaged it while they it it for 3 weeks and ask for their car back, gave it to them and still waiting for my tags back they say they have to re tag my car. well they took it all off so they can pay for the re tagging not me, they shouldn't hAVE DONE THAT before they had clear title for my car and had financing for the car I wanted, big mistake. mr vandergriff would be so ashamed of what they have done with his good name and his dealership.
