OMGeez... This sucks for SoCal
I bought my Evora S form West Covina. I received it with a few common issues; sub amp blown, etc.. After bringing the car in to check the issues they gave me the car back a week later dirty, the battery all out and the dash taken apart and wires all hanging out... didn't eve put it back together before giving it back(not sure how they thought that was ok) then told me 10 weeks to get parts :/
I took my car to Orange County they had it fixed in a week, plus gave me a loaner car. I stayed with them for all my services since and currently have nearly 40k on the car. James is the Mechanic and always did a great job. My last visits however were different... I took the car in for maintenance and to have a wheel refinished -Didnt get it back for 7 weeks!!(but had a loaner so only slightly annoyed. Then hit 36k and wanted to get final warranty work done and needed maintenance, so reluctantly took it back... After I dropped the car off(with Freddy who just took over the service department) I was told they don't give loaners to Lotus owners any more.
I live about an hour and a half away and had no one with me so spent the next 6 hours at the Irvine Spectrum- When I got the car back with no warranty work done(didn't have time they said) I was told they don't want to deal with Lotus's any more- That Lotus have too many issues with no support and they loose money every time they work on one and it takes their mechanic off a car they can make money on... And basically they weren't happy I was there didn't want me back- I wasn't happy I was there either and will never go back and never buy a car from them ever! Ugh, sorry for the rant... but What do we do now?
