I usually have a wonderful experience with Bowditch. For the positives, Al, our service rep who is head of the Blue Team is always a pleasure to work with. Also the mechanics always do an excellent job on our vehicles. However your new process of not being able to speak directly to our service representative lacks customer service. I had to call back twice to have someone return my call and then it was someone who has no idea who we are or what we need. Finally once she gave a message to our service rep he was very accommodating as always and I was able to have the problem resolved. Our service rep and mechanics deserve a 10, however your process does not. We have been clients at this dealership well over 40 years and my concern is that once the people who we have always had excellent relationships with are gone we feel our service and purchasing experiences will be lacking.
My 2018 ram 1500 Laramie had an issue fueling at the gas pump, I deduced that it could be the charcoal canister. When Berna from the dealership called me back she confirmed that the maintenance department agreed with my diagnosis. She said my truck would be in the shop for four days end it was completely covered under warranty zero dollar deductible and a free one rental vehicle for me to use in the meantime. Although I was a little upset about my truck being in the shop and being so new, I was very pleased with the service and they got the job done in three days instead of four.
Purchasing a vehicle from 518 Auto was a, dare I say, a stressless experience. Living in NC, I called 518 to inquire additional information about the vehicle I was interested in purchasing. From the first call, I felt oddly comfortable with traveling across state lines to make such purchase. Mark Blumenthal, was available, flexible, and genuine. These qualities were reassuring and contributed significantly in finalizing and making the purchase. I recommend 518 auto sales and Mark Blumenthal to my friends and family.
Coming to 518 Auto was the best decision I made all year. See Leonard Aube if you want to get your money worth for a vehicle! See Tien Lien to get your finances together. The staff are super friendly and helpful. These guys are great!
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
I had the best experience with Checkered Flag Auto Outlet. This is my second time using Checkered Flag as our dealership. Our salesman, Allen Belanger, was the best salesman I've ever dealt with. He was genuine, answered all of our questions, and never pushed anything on us. He called us as soon as the vehicle we were interested in was ready to be viewed. The whole team at the Auto Outlet made us feel like they were a close knit family, and we became part of it. They even helped entertain my one year old daughter! I will continue to recommend Checkered Flag to all of my family and friends in the area!
The sale people were very knowledgeable , and was a pleasure to do business with. She had the service department clean the car prior to delivery and they did not half clean anything. The windows, interior seats, and carpet was not cleaned as good as previous car dealers had done. Overall Sale personnel are fine, Service personnel are not as good.
Ron Perry is the BEST!!!! He worked so very hard along with Jennifer in finding a deal for me and my forever car!!!!! They are an amazing team and I will continue coming back!!!!
