We went car shopping this past Saturday. We stopped at the Toyota store they had all the prices on all of there cars, when we went to the Hyundai store there where no prices and we where told a higher price then what was on the internet. Maguire is suppose to be an upfront lowest price dealer. Guess not any more!!!
Bought a 2017 Chevy Cruze from Colby Newlen at Maguire Chevy & Cadillac. They didn't have the pre-owned car I wanted but were confident they could find one for me. A few days later I drove home in my Cruze and in the color I wanted. Didn't know a dealership would do that! Colby and his manager couldn't have made it any easier!!!
Couldn't make a deal. Couldn't get down to my monthly payment I would be comfortable with, I mostly blame the high price of vehicles and my crappy credit score, but the salespeople could have done better, seemed to want to push an extended warranty on a 2018 vehicle with 12,000 miles on it, and never quoted me a payment figure without it. Communication could have been better, they didn't get back to me for 5 days to let me know what was going on, when he finally did he quoted the same figure he gave me when I was up there (from 2 hours away I might add). Finance manager was supposed to be working on a better figure, but I never heard from him. Too bad we couldn't do anything, I liked the place for the most part .
One of my companies service vans became unusable in the Albany area.
After searching the internet for used vehicles in our required condition and price range, I found one right here in Ithaca that led me to a deal with Tom Pritchard. After discussing our situation, I told Tom I was looking for a win/win deal. After a short congenial negotiation, we came to a deal that worked for both of us. When Tom was attaching the new plates, I discovered a crack in the windshield that wasn't there on my previous visit, apparently due to a chip that cracked from the cold weather. We postponed the delivery until after the weekend and he had Choice Auto Glass there early Monday to have it quickly replaced without question. He wanted the vehicle right before it left the dealership.
I was pleased with the deal, Tom and the whole Prichard Team. They followed up a few weeks later to ensure I was happy. I would recommend their "Old Time" way of making a deal to anyone looking for a good used vehicle. No pressure, easy to work with.
We drove from Lafayette to get another opinion as to the shudder that we have been experiencing since April when we got new tires and are SO grateful for all of the patience and care Jeff took to diagnose our problem. We have been going from service center to service center since April and the local dealer as well as the others have all had us "spinning our wheels." Doug was so kind and thoughtful of me as I sat in the waiting area. I was determined to get a truthful answer and Macguire came through!! It WAS the new tires that had caused all of the problems! After months of running around getting random things 'fixed' that never needed fixing, we got upgraded tires put on and our 'couch' experience has returned!! Thanks to all of you at Macguire for your kindness, care, concern, and low price for all of the work you did!! It is much appreciated! We are telling all of our friends of our great experience and encouraging all to take the short, beautiful ride to Ithaca for the best service around!
I came into Maguire with lots of questions and not a lot of knowledge, Brian Nowlan helped me find what car worked the best for me and continued to help with the whole process! I was not expecting to walk away with a car, but am beyond excited at the way this all worked out. Thank you!
This was my first real car buying experience and I couldn't be happier with my purchase and the customer service ( Teresa )...from the moment I walked through the door I felt like a valued customer not just a number or a commission. I got exactly what I wanted and was treated with respect and kindness. I will be going back for my next car.
