Incredible Service Department!
November 6, 2018
Bear with me here, because I want to give a thorough and honest review. I bought a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee at Dick Scott 2 years ago from mostly because they had the car I was looking for, but also because it was convenient that they were in Fowlerville where I lived. Though to be fair, I looked at dealerships all over SE Michigan for the better part of a year before making a purchase decision. The Sales experience was not bad and probably better than most but also nothing that made me go "Wow!" I can't remember my sales person's name and haven't heard from him since but that's typical, I think. When I purchased the car, I also purchased the extended warranty because I drive vehicles for a long time and I was concerned mostly about all of the electronics on the newer vehicles. I initially took the car to Dick Scott's service department for basic maintenance and a few minor issues that I was surprised were covered under the warranty I purchased like a rattling seat and stereo firmware upgrades. Each time took the car in, I left feeling impressed by the customer service and support. I always left feeling like I was the most important customer that day...sort of like I was flying first class. But the truth is, while I appreciate it, I really didn't think a ton about it until I recently moved and took my car to another Chrysler dealership only 3 miles from my new house. My car developed a noise that sounded a bit like a playing card in the spokes of a bicycle. The noise admittedly came and went so when I wasn't going to need it a few days, I dropped it off at the closest dealership. I am not writing a review about that dealership here, so I won't go into a lot of detail but I will say that while they had the vehicle for 4 days, they did not identify or fix the problem. The attitude and lack of desire or effort to address my concern stood in such stark contrast to what I had become accustomed to at Dick Scott was astounding. So much so that I drove an hour back to Dick Scott just to ask them for help. I spoke with Scott Combs, the service manager and explained the situation to him. It was like going home again. The welcoming attitude alone was enough to make me feel better, but over the next 2 days, I became blown away by how much effort Scott and his team (especially Nick Lennard) put into fixing the issue and making me feel appreciated and valued as a customer. It was so far over and beyond that this review does not even come close to describing my appreciation. The thing is, this experience made me realize how much different the service I had thought was normal before, was actually comparatively superb. It is definitely NOT convenient for me to continue take my car to a dealership an hour away, yet I will do so in the future. The value of their outstanding customer service makes any inconvenience absolutely worth it!
