Re: Request two new forums -- Negative Feedback Forum, and Positive Feedback Forum (GrecianVolvo)

The vast majority of car dealerships, regardless of marque, are lying scumbags. I've personally found this to be true w/ Honda, Toyota, VW, and Volvo dealers here in NJ. The local Volvo dealer tried to charge me for programming a key to my '98 XC. There's no chip in that key! Years ago, I had a Toyota dealer charge me for installing rear brakes on my Celica (I supplied the brakes, that I had bought from them). When I got the car back, the box was still in the trunk, w/ the new shoes in it. Local VW dealer refused to perform recall service, claiming that there was no recall. A couple of calls to VWNA got that straightened out. Local Honda dealer was supposed to include items w/ the car, at purchase. Items were not included, and after the sale, dealer claimed that they were extras. A meeting w/ the general manager to go over the written contract cleared that up.<p>So, it doesn't matter what marque you're dealing with, dealerships are scumbags. Seems to be more of a problem w/ large dealerships that could care less about customer loyalty. Or in the case of the local Volvo dealership, they figure they have a monopoly (the three immediate dealers, Bridgewater, Princeton, and Edison, are all owned by the same person). The other thing the local Volvo dealer tried to do, was sell me new front brakes (pads and rotors, to the tune of $450), when the ones that were on the car were <6 months and 5k miles old. Another story about Bridgewater Volvo relates to diagnostic charges. I understand that most places will charge you shop labor to diagnose a problem. I have no problem w/ this, because they have to spend time on the car. However, most places will credit the diagnostic fee back towards the work to be done. Bridgewater wouldn't, because I wasn't having all the suggested work done (see above comment re: brakes). As a result, they didn't get any of the work. Needless to say, they'll never see my car again.

This could be a slippery slope. We have a thread in the R forum for vendor feedback. I have not looked in there recently to see how that one has progressed.
