Fast car inspection and replacement of the battery
by PhilDC from San Francisco, CA
December 1, 2018
My battery failed after owning my KIA for two years, a month and a few days. My car was towed to Hilltop Ford/KIA under warranty and the problem identified: battery was replaced at cost of $154.40. I had thought something more serious was the case. Mr. Danny Roque, Service Manager, was very concerned, attentive and helpful in my obtaining a refund on additional towing charges, due to the fact that Oakland KIA, the nearest KIA dealer to San Francisco, could not store and inspect my car for eight (8) days after I contacted them. Hilltop KIA was able to inspect the car, replace the battery, wash my car and transport me to and from a BART station, all within thirty hours after I first contacted them by telephone. I greatly appreciate his assistance and the good service I received.
A bit different than the atypical dealership being in the middle of a large and busy city, but that doesn't stop the customer service from shining through. I'd highly recommend for purchase of a new or used vehicle.
I inquired about a newly posted Honda Pilot on a Friday and got an immediate response asking when I was available to test drive which was awesome. I responded immediately that I was in Tahoe for the weekend and could test drive on Sunday afternoon.
The next response was from someone else who said the car had been sold the night before. So a bit of a mixed signal, but no hard feelings, I guess it’s the nature of the biz.
Was looking at a Camaro convertible that they had advertised and asked for quote.
All I got was the run around with requesting more personal info at this point that I was comfortable with. All I wanted was to see had firm their price was, of so what could we do. So no deal was made or offered. Waste of time.
This is a review for Avery Green Honda in Vallejo.
I just bought a certified pre owned 2017 Honda Pilot. I worked with Dave Collello who provided me really great customer service from when I first spoke with home on the phone to when he stayed late, passed closing hours, and made the deal.
I am a small business owner in the in home serivce industry and I know good customer service when i see it.
Dave was extremely knowledgeable about the vehicle and the buying process. He made my wife, my teenage son and myself feel very comfortable the whole time and made the process fun.
Best of all he worked a good deal with some add on options I requested.
If you're looking at a Honda I recommend asking for Dave Collello to help you.
Vroom rushed me thru the process of purchasing a vehicle from them. Had strict requirements of receiving payment within 48 hours. I was rushing my loan department to get my paperwork completed ahead of other customers in fear of losing the vehicle I wanted to another buyer. The loan paperwork and a check had to be overnighted to Vroom to meet their qualifications. THEN CAME TIME FOR THEM TO GET THE THINGS I NEEDED TO ME!!! I HAD TO REPEATEDLY ASK ABOUT THE ARRIVAL OF MY TRADE IN TO THEIR FACILITY (which they kept telling me for 15 days that it hadn???t reached their facility??!! Yeah right)!! THEY DRUG THEIR FEET ON SENDING THE PAYOFF OF MY TRADE IN SO LONG THAT THE 15 Day PAYOFF THEY WERE QUOTED EXPIRED AND I HAD TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE FROM MY OWN ACCOUNT!! I WAITED 26 DAYS TO RECEIVE TITLE PAPERWORK!! BUT THE PAPERWORK THEY NEEDED FROM ME HAD TO BE SENT WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS!! YOU SHOULD GIVE AS GOOD AS YOU EXPECT, VROOM!! I HAD TO KEEP REQUESTING A REFUND OF THE $500 THEY CHARGED TO MY CREDIT CARD TO HOLD THE VEHICLE FOR A WEEK!!! LASTLY, the 2nd person I dealt with following the sales person was RUDE.
Very professional , courteous and honest sales consultation with Dave Colello. Dave is an outstanding company representative. I would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a vehicle in the local area.
I had a good experience good quality customer service as well as great help from Gerald mayers I will definitely be back soon to purchase a car I am going to recommend to all my friends and family.
