Brought my ???15 Suburban in for a recall on electronic power steering. Mentioned that my rear electronic gate was not going up all the way and asked for assistance. Service rep said more or less ???that will be $109 for us to diagnose it???. The whole approach turned us off as our other vehicle is an Audi, and that service team is always talking to us about the ins and outs of the features and how to use and maintain various things...in other words its always a conversation at the Audi dealership...not just people looking to charge us. Over time this approach has built amazing trust, loyalty, and desire to perform our service there because we know they know their product. So we said no thanks on the peoposal at Luther. For $100 we can google it and learn a ton.....and guess what...some random dealer salesman???s youtube was the first search result reviewing how to use and program the electronic rear gate on a 2015 suburban. Thats all it was...button was turned to 3/4. Luther needs to train their people on the basic features and maintenance of a complex $60,000 product instead of coming across as shallow and desperate for service tickets.

This review is directed on behalf of our salesman, Mr. David Middleton. From our very first visit, Dave made my wife and me feel very comfortable. We knew when we walked in, this was the van for us. Dave was very helpful in explaining all the features of this auto. There was absolutely no pressure on his part to sell us this van. We went and left a few times to think about the buying of this van. There were no phone calls made by Dave asking unnecessary questions about a potential sale. All of our communication was warm and friendly. He explained all the additional options we could have purchased in buying this van. There was no pressure on his part to push us into buying any of these add-ons. He went the extra mile to close this deal in a very warm and comfortable manner. I would recommend Dave to our friends who are looking for their future auto.
Great experience !! Our salesman Gary insured all of my needs were met and that I was satisfied . All the staff was pleasant and currtious. Would recommend them on all levels... Great dealer with great price!!

Everyone at the dealership is so kind and friendly. We have never had such a good experience purchasing and getting service work done as we have at Whitaker Buick! So glad that Josh made such a good impression when he approached us in the lot.
I really felt good about this experience. In the past car purchases, I never felt really good about the experience, but this time was different. Paul made me feel at home and everyone at the dealership was similar. Very low-key low pressure atmosphere. Just a bunch of folks trying to genuinely help people find a good vehicle at a decent price. This is my first GMC. I am very excited and pleased with it.
Dan, our sales guy was honest, personable and worked hard to find us a car that we would love. This was the first car buying experience we've had where I appreciated the salesperson and wanted to return to give him my business. The finance person, however was somewhat rude. After working so hard with Dan to get the car we wanted as close to our budget as possible, and then making a decision to go over our budget to get the car, when we got in to the finance dept office and there had been an error, he acted like we were trying to work him for a better deal because we were upset the price went up by another $5. References to knowing how much we make, and to go ahead and 'try to fool the next guy' because he wasn't buying that $5-20 a month would matter to us were unprofessional and rude. When quoted a price on Saturday and being told it would be more money on Wednesday when I came back to sign the paperwork you already have not met my expectations, so yes I will say no when you try to get me to purchase add ons, even if I could afford it. Congrats to Dan for being so great I didn't walk out when another team member insulted us, because I didn't want him to a lose the sale.
I put in an order for a 2018 Toyota Highlander without AWD. It had all the other features I wanted, especially the color and trailer hitch. I thought I could live without AWD. After a few days I called back to cancel and get a refund of my deposit. The salesperson asked why and I told him the car did not have AWD and I decided not to buy because of that. He said ok and forwarded my call to the person who would refund my deposit. I got the refund in 3 days.
9 am service appt that took over 1 hour 20 minutes to complete. They had to simply plug into computer port (in-cab) for engine light check. My opinion - Too long for a 5-10 minute check. After 1 hour I had to see what status was...Last oil change same, slow service...
Sadly another bad service. Had high hopes because my last service was really good. Bad communication (I should say No communication) during the day of what was happening or when to expect my car back. Only called me back after I called later afternoon (3pm) when I dropped my car at 8am. Also service couldn???t get a valet to bring my car around at end of day. Service advisor overheard and went to get when I walked out to get myself which I appreciate. Pulled it around and of course it hadn???t been washed. It???s my assumption when they call to say your car is ready it???s actually ready. Again I don???t go to service for a car wash but it???s something about having pride in the cars coming off their lot I would think they would want to have that shine and good feeling when a customer leaves. But then again given the actions maybe not....
Pete made the car buying process as painless as possible while car shopping with two toddlers. He listened to our needs and directed towards a 2018 Acadia. There was no pressure to make the purchase that day and they gave us a fair price on our trade in. The entire staff treated us like family. I will definitely be choosing Valley Buick GMC for future automotive purchases. I cannot thank them enough.
I actually don't know which Tom I have worked or if I have worked with both. However, everyone there treats you with respect. They also perform the services they are asked to. Nothing more, nothing less. I just do not like the attitude of some (few) of the employees. I also did not appreciate the fact that I was not followed up with when I requested or that when called a voice message is not always left if the call is missed. I also do not like how when a call is returned, the staff members have no idea why they called as if they do not notate our accounts.
