Worst Car buying experience

Reviewed by Marlen Lopez from Long Beach, CaApril 26, 2021

This has been by far the worse experience i have ever gone through in a car buying experience. i purchased a 2016 GMC Yukon with 75k miles. Only 1 owner - Vehicle was always serviced at GMC - No Accidents reported on Autocheck or Carfax . Within my first 30 days of having the vehicle, the car was taken into Service 4 different times. The day the vehicle was sold to me, the taillights were out. Isnt that a HUGE safety issue ??? (When you guys put these cars on the lot, do you guys not inspect them?) I pick up my car from service once the installation was complete to find out the power motor for the drivers window wasn't working correctly. Few days go by my Brake pump start vibrating when I would step on the brake. On my 30th day of having the vehicle my Transmission goes OUT !!!! Sure enough Sales Manger Ketty was looking for any type of way to get ME to pay for a new Transmission. Given the fact that I only purchased a full size SUV because I am 5 months pregnant with a 1 year baby. Not once did the Sale manager show any empathy towards my situation. Transmission gets replaced with ME having to PAY OUT OF POCKET. The day of the delivery with my new transmission, the middle console is not longer working . Of Course, the dealer wants me to pay out of pocket $700 to replace that too. I called Ketty, Friday April 23rd , it is now April 26th, i have not received a call from Him or his team. This was my first time buying a GMC, i would NEVER EVER EVER recommend anyone to buy one. I would NEVER recommend anyone buy any car from this dealer. They do not care about you once the sale is done. Ideally us customers go buy a used car at a franchise dealer rather than a independent dealer because they are known to provide better customer care, better quality vehicles, competitive pricing. THIS DEALERSHIP HAS DONE THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE !!!! At the end of the day ALL i wanted was a safe car to get my kids to their destination safely. Ketty and his SALES STAFF have failed miserably.

Terrrible Service Department

Reviewed by Cad Driver from Torrance, CAMay 11, 2020

Service department is useless. My best guess: low morale = none of these folks care about you or getting your vehicle fixed and back to you in a timely manner.
